Actually, I recognize how easy it is to get in the habit of speaking fast. In fact, the one criticism I get about the seminar I do on Preventing Human Error is that I talk too fast. I got in the habit of talking fast when I cut the seminar down from eight to four hours at the request of a major client. While I condensed the seminar content, I still had a lot to cover in four hours. I have noticed that when I consciously slow myself down, I actually get done a little earlier than when I am rushing. I think the same would be true of controllers. If the FAA would start a major initiative to get controllers to slow their rate of delivery, in the end I think controllers would find that everything was working faster and more smoothly because there would be a lot less need to repeat what was just said, and less time required to respond to mistakes caused by misunderstandings.
