what your voice is telling others about you
emily kate moon stashed this in communication
When you hear a woman’s voice talking about relationships you trust it more than a man’s voice, even if the content is the same. You like a forceful male voice more than a forceful female voice, again, even when the content is the same.
Men subconsciously know the connection between voice and dominance. When they feel powerful in a group they deepen their voice and when they feel weak they raise it, unknowingly.
So... Deepen our voices to seem like we have authority?
i guess so. i find that i have to take a deep breath before i start scolding my children and concentrate on keeping my voice low or it comes out all high-pitched and they ignore me!
It's good to insert the deep breath first, I think.
yes, that keeps me from whining and yelling!
When in doubt, breathe.
ahhhhhhh.... so true!
How does deep breathing work? Inhale 4 seconds, hold 7 seconds, exhale 7 seconds?
I can't find a good reference here: http://pandawhale.com/ifindkarma/breathe
Maybe Fulfillment Daily has something?
thanks for asking, adam! here's what fulfillment daily has on breathing. :)
Sweet. Thank you for finding that article Emily. I am going to practice.
