Sample Video: Voice

The bottom line: We infer a lot about someone’s energy, engagement, and competence based on the quality of their voice. Since the more comfortable we feel, the more freely we express ourselves, it makes sense that we view someone who speaks with a strong voice as being more at ease and self-assured.

Try this! Take a moment to consider how these scenarios might influence your assessment of the speaker. What if. . .
. . . your airline pilot sounded weak and tired over the intercom?
. . . your doctor’s volume was consistently too soft to hear?
. . . your potential new hire consistently mumbled during the job interview?
. . . your corporate leader’s voice was strident and high pitched?
