Can you help me to understand "just as"'s mean in this paragraph. Thank you!

Your tone, tempo, and volume could reveal, for instance, that you are nervous and insecure, despite your confident words, just as it is not enough to say all the right things with perfect timing if you are speaking too fast or so quietly that people cannot even hear you

  • It means exactly as. You can find this in a dictionary. – michael.hor257k Sep 21 '16 at 14:41
  • How can you speak with perfect timing if you are speaking too fast? – FumbleFingers Sep 21 '16 at 14:45
  • so "as" means "because", right? – vuakungfu Sep 21 '16 at 14:45
  • Did you check a dictionary about this? merriam-webster.com/dictionary/just%20as – DJClayworth Sep 21 '16 at 14:53
  • But I don't find a relation between two sentences "Your tone, tempo, and volume could reveal, for instance, that you are nervous and insecure, despite your confident words" and "just as it is not enough to say all the right things with perfect timing if you are speaking too fast or so quietly that people cannot even hear you". Can you explain more carefully for me (sorry, I'm not Native English, and my English is not good so I can't understand) – vuakungfu Sep 21 '16 at 15:03

But I don't find a relation between two sentences

The first sentence claims that it is not enough to say the right words, you must also say them in the right tone, tempo, and volume.

The second sentence claims that it is not enough to say all the right things with perfect timing, you must also say them slowly and loudly enough.

The two sentences are similar in claiming that it is not enough to do X, you must also do Y (or not do Z). This is why they are joined by just as.
