There is a direct link between our voice and our personality.
The way we think and feel about ourselves, the way we think and feel about life is directly expressed in the way we speak our words, the sound of our voice. We may intend to send a specific message, but, because our von verbal language speaks louder than our words, our “real” message may be miss-sent or misunderstood. This misunderstanding has direct impact on our personality.
The sound of our voice carries the critical message - words are almost meaningless. By the sound of the voice, the listener determines who we are and what is the “real” message – but is it the message we intended to send?
We mean to sound friendly, but the voice is weak, hesitant, no eye contact, the inflection shows indecision, boredom, fear… The sound of the voice sends the “real” message, even if it’s one we would never consciously send.
Our voice is a strange thing; it’s a very small part of us on the inside, but on the outside it’s a vital part of our communication. We choose our words carefully believing that our message is clear. We conclude we’ve been understood – the words say it all. But it’s the “paralanguage’ that sends the real message – it is the foundation of most communication – not the words.
