How Your Voice Reveals Intimate Secrets
overnight fever - the sound of my voice tells all. It sounded
hollow and sleepy. Then, just 45 minutes later, my morning
workout restored the energy in body, mind And voice.
That got me thinking about how powerful our voices are.
Every time we talk, the sound of our voice reveals our gender,
age, geographic background, emotional state, and our
relationship to the person we’re speaking to.
When someone calls you, you recognize them by their voice. But
you can also tell how they’re feeling, what kind of person they
are, and what they really mean – as opposed what they might be
saying. That even goes for strangers.
Even the tiniest fragments of how you say things reveals
subtle, or not so subtle clues about your current state of
mind. Which means that other people can ‘read’ your voice
That makes every voice an extraordinary instrument.
Speaking isn’t just a string of words. It’s also the 1000s of
ways those words can be said. How you say what you’re saying
reveals intimate details about you. The way I see you--and the
way I am seen by you—depends to a large degree on what we
hear in each other’s voices.
Just like posture. The way you stand and walk can reveal your
age, level of confidence, and health.
People gravitate towards voices that show enthusiasm, vitality,
and graciousness. A voice that sounds listless and dull isn’t
what I would call attractive. It’s actually unhealthy to listen
A calm, confident way of speaking is a beautiful thing to hear.
Music has the same immediate effect on you. What you hear is
what you get. Tis why calming, positive music allows you to
access joy and rejuvenation easily and naturally. After you
listen, just watch how your voice changes. To hear the magic
