Since I’m small (158 cm) and always the youngest in my group of friends and at work, people always tease me for being like a kid.

So I learned to use a “work voice” that’s a little lower in order to be taken seriously. Except I didn’t realize until today that when I get nervous, excited, very happy, tired or comfortable with someone... my low voice falls apart and my real voice comes out. And it happened a lot without me realizing....

My colleague made fun of me today and finally told me that everyone notices I use a different voice... I was busted!

So embarrassing.

Does anyone have a professional voice too? Or even a “phone voice”? Maybe I’m crazy...

    @Anderson I have over 1000 messages so it’s hard to reply to everyone...I only talk to 2-3 people regularly and mostly only women. Sorry!

    We usually don’t, maybe we didn’t have to face a lot or care a lot about others ’joke’ , just be yourself.

    @Ernest ahhhhhh yes!! One of my male coworkers sound sooo different when he talks to strangers on the phone. It makes my skin crawl. I just realized I think I do the low voice because Americans find higher voices annoying/childish. Haha

    That's bizarre 😃 a problem only women have, i guess, so i can't emphasize with that behavior. Sounds kind of exhausting, too

    @Tom König it’s really exhausting! When I used my real voice at the start of my career, one of my American colleagues said because it was higher it sounded too nervous and childish. She said “nobody will take you seriously.”

    @Lyn That's an really ignorant and mean thing to say. Instead you should've taken her not seriously. I'm sure most people wouldn't agree with her at all

    @Tom König it happened six years ago lol and since then I even took lessons to help with my voice tone. But at the end of the day my “real” voice can’t really be hidden. Just paused temporarily during calls or voice clips

    Me too, Im 1cm shorter than you, actually it's just the popular height for girl here but maybe bc of the way I dress and react about things, people always find me childish 🥺 (actually I am 🤦‍♀️🤣) I also have to fake the phone voice when talking with strangers or "adult" people.

    Hey Lyn~Height is not a shame! You have to believe that a small body will have great energy! So you don’t have to care about other people’s views, believe in yourself, you are the perfect person.
