Admit that you have when listening to your own voice, sometimes a thought — "What a nightmare! Is that my voice?". I want to reassure you — this is quite normal and easy to explain the phenomenon associated with the anatomy and psyche. Why is this happening now we will tell.
This phenomenon has long been known to science, and even has its own name — the voice of confrontation. It is most easily explained from the point of view of anatomy. When we say we take your voice not only through vibrations in the air, but also through vibration of bones in the skull. In the recording of the case we clean sound is not distorted bone tissue. So sounds from the voice seems higher than usual, and due to this feature, not very pleasant.
Of course, we expect that speak the voice action hero or a languid beauty, and hear the voice of Mickey mouse, inadvertently causing a smile. Scientist from the University of Essex, doctor of psychology Slyke of Pallmann, explains this phenomenon from the point of view of the science:
But this is only one explanation. Specialists from other fields of science also have their point of view. Some confusion in the slender psychological theory made the experiment of a group of scientists from Europe who offered the group of volunteers to rate the attractiveness of the expressed votes. Thus, among the entries posted and tracks with the votes of the participants of the experiment, not telling them about it. It turned out that the volunteers gave their votes enough high ratings, but only in the case when you do not know to whom they belong.
In 1966, scientists Phil Holzemann and Clyde Rauzi also, experiments were conducted, which proved that voice confrontation caused not only by the change in the perceived frequency. Psychologists claimed that the dissatisfaction with the voice has a subconscious nature of man feels discomfort from the fact that his voice reveals the emotional state, betrays his insecurity, or anger.
Their study showed that people who learn a second language after the age of 16, was much stronger than dissatisfied with the records in their native language than in a foreign language. This fact did not explain the structure of the skull — it works much harder and the secret of this phenomenon lies in our brain. Neurologist mark Pell from McGill University says research in this field like this:
How do you evaluate your voice is heard from the side? There are among us those who are completely satisfied with their tone and diction.
