What Your Voice Says About You

Everyone has at some point been charmed by the sound of a person’s voice. But can we believe our ears? What can a voice really reveal about our character? Now an international research team led by the University of Göttingen has shown that people seem to express at least some aspects of their personality with their voice. The researchers discovered that a lower pitched voice is associated with individuals who are more dominant, extrovert and higher in sociosexuality – more interested in casual sex. The findings were true for women as well as for men. The results appear in the ‘Journal of Research in Personality’. Says the study, “Our results suggest that people do seem to express some aspects of their personality with their voice.”
