Asked by: Alexander Boswell, Budleigh Salterton
Most of us are happy with our voice until we hear it recorded. One reason is that our recorded voice sounds higher pitched than we’re used to. This is because we usually hear our voice, in part, as it’s conducted through the bones in our head, which makes it sound deeper.
Another reason is that when we hear a recording of our voice, we scrutinise ourselves as we would others, and we’re surprised and discomfited by just how much (we think) we’re giving away in terms of our personality.
