My voice is very deep lil like josh Turner's but I see what needs to be done for my situation i can be very verbal can reach attention across a large room of people. So thank you for this article I never knew how my voice comes out till I read this very interesting. Although all the lady voices i talk to on the phone cant wait to meet me.....just to see I'm n average dude..lol.
Yes, my tone of voice has affected my life: It all started with "reading with expression"—you know, what primary teachers always coach students to do in round-robin read-aloud practice. I got chosen for lead parts in class and school plays; chosen for giving speeches at my graduations and other school and church conferences; sponsored by my college for overseas work; and hired by employers I interviewed with. I'm saying this to underscore the truth in what you mentioned about how speaking clearly and with confidence (not cockiness!) and in a friendly, energetic tone is key in making a good impression in interviews. In daily life, too, speaking clearly, with confidence...and that important "smile in the voice" has helped me when dealing with challenging situations over the phone, like customer service and claims departments!
