Cara ‘Memperkenalkan Diri dengan Percaya Diri! Berikut Tips dan Contoh

Kampung Inggris Bandung E-PLC – Apa yang kamu katakan saat bertemu orang baru? ‘Silakan perkenalkan dirimu,’ begitu kan pastinya. Introduce self adalah tindakan memperkenalkan diri kepada orang lain. Kamu mungkin hanya memperkenalkan diri kepada orang baru yang belum pernah ditemui sebelumnya, atau mungkin memperkenalkan diri kepada ratusan orang di sebuah ruang seminar. Untungnya, kedua situasi tersebut sebenarnya membutuhkan bahasa dan bahasa tubuh yang sama yaitu harus dengan percaya diri dan menggunakan kata-kata yang jelas. 

 

Memperkenalkan diri tidak hanya menyebut nama lengkap dan nama panggilan tetapi lebih dari itu kita perlu memberi tahu lebih banyak informasi tentang diri kita. Memperkenalkan diri kepada orang asing bisa jadi rumit karena apa yang akan kita katakan tergantung pada konteks, situasi (dalam wawancara kerja, seminar atau atau perkenalan diri di kelas).

 

Berikut ini tips umum dalam memperkenalkan diri 

 

  • Ucapkan dengan jelas siapa kamu. Cobalah untuk tidak bergumam atau orang yang Anda perkenalkan diri mungkin harus bertanya lagi… dan lagi… dan lagi… sampai mereka hanya tersenyum dan mengangguk tanpa pernah tahu siapa nama kamu. .
  • Bersikap ramah. Bahkan dalam situasi formal. Kamu bisa memulainya dengan mengatakan sesuatu seperti “Hai, there I’m …” sambil tersenyum. Cara ini menggambarkan bahwa kamu percaya diri dan mudah diajak bicara. Jika kamu berada dalam suasana yang sangat formal, kamu dapat mengatakan “Hallo, I am…” intinya kamu  harus memperkenalkan diri dengan cara yang mudah didekati. 
  • Kenali audiens-nya. Tidak masalah jika kamu harus berbicara dengan satu atau seribu orang, mengetahui audiens adalah kuncinya. Setidaknya kamu harus memiliki gambaran tentang bagaimana mereka nantinya. Misalnya, saat bertemu dengan Bos untuk untuk pertama kalinya mungkin bukan saat yang tepat untuk menceritakan lelucon di perkenalan diri kamu, tetapi bertemu dengan teman di kampus mungkin saja bisa disertai dengan lelucon.
  • Jika kamu sedang duduk saat pertama kali bertemu seseorang untuk memperkenalkan diri, kamu bisa memperkenalkan diri dengan cara sambil berdiri. Cara seperti ini dianggap sebagai cara yang sopan untuk dilakukan. Bahasa tubuh seperti ini dapat digunakan untuk mengesankan kepada orang yang kamu temui bahwa kamu adalah orang yang sopan. 

 

Berikut ini beberapa contoh memperkenalkan diri

 

Introducing Yourself in Class

“Hi, I’m Rara. I’m taking this class because Art History has always been something I’ve been fascinated by, ever since I started taking trips to art galleries as a little girl, and I’m basically just excited to learn a little more.

 

Self-Introduction in Interview

“Hi, I’m Jane Smith. I’ve always been passionate about Art, and I actually majored in Art History at college last year. Ever since, I’ve been pursuing my dream of becoming an Art handler so I can really work in an area I know a great deal about. So when I saw your job advertisement I couldn’t stop myself from applying.”

 

Di sini kamu telah memperkenalkan diri dengan jelas, memberi tahu mereka apa minat, dan menggambarkan diri sebagai orang yang ideal untuk pekerjaan itu.

 

Networking

“Hi, I’m Jane Smith. I help restore and preserve art. Just last week I actually worked on ‘The White Bridge’ by John Smith and I’ve led various projects throughout the years too. What I’m looking for now is to move into an area of Art where I have opportunities to create art of my own, as well as preserve other people’s. Do you have any thoughts about how I might achieve that?”

 

Dalam networking, penting untuk menyatakan apa yang kita lakukan, apa yang telah dilakukan, dan apa yang ingin kita lakukan. Networking adalah tentang memperkenalkan siapa kita dengan cara yang dapat menunjukkan bahwa kita dapat berguna bagi orang lain dan juga seseorang yang terbuka untuk koneksi baru.
