Which Voice Do You Use?

and why? Taken from a women’s group.

J Speaks in a slightly stoned speech pattern – level, no highs or lows in speech or speed. Tried to explain thoughts but never sure. Finishes with “it’s hard to explain.”

S very high-pitched, not confident, always questioning, insecure.

C Hight-pitched baby talk (how I talk to my dog).

SD Self-denigrating, mean internally, emotionless.

SA Soothing, appreciative, calm, not patronizing, positive.

P Confident, leader, outgoing, gets others to do things, comfortable.

B Cut and dried, curt, short but not snotty, absorbs everything said without saying much.

SP Pleasant, sponge-like, takes it in, feels out the crowd until comfortable, chit-chats, on the surface.

RV Comfortable pitch/tone/speed, even paced, authentic voice.

ST Short, Monotone, never agrees/disagrees, there and just fine.

Do you use a particular because you think you’re supposed to? What voice do you use and when? Do you like it or not? Want to change it? How do you feel when you use that voice?

Stay tuned in, there’s more to come. And please leave your thoughts in the comment box. Maybe I can help!

My life was filled with mountains and boulders. In order to survive I had many different jobs and adventures I want to tell you about. There is not enough room to tell you all I did so I'll hit some highlights. Born in the Bronx, NYC, I grew up to sing opera in the U.S. and Europe. Next I became a psychologist and practiced in NYC and again when I moved to Florida. My first book "Mountain of Full Moons" will be out in April of 2020 and I am now writing a memoir because as I said to the principal during first grade, "I have a lot to say." I am the mother of two men and a woman all in their 60's, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild - therefore my blog "Who am I and Why and subtitle almost a century because I am crawling closer and closer to the goal of 103. I love life and try to live it to the fullest. I'm a vegetarian of 30 years and healthy. Oh yes, I should mention my two divorces.
