Have you ever paid attention to how successful businessmen, experienced managers, public figures or famous actors? Most people speak success calmly, slowly, in a low velvety voice. They are sure that they will be heard, they have enough time. Their speech is slow, and the words are easy. Interestingly, they say so because they are already successful, or did they succeed because they say so?
The voice is a reflection of our inner. From the timbre of voice, intonation and pace of speech, one can understand a lot about a person: in what mood he is, in his physical and psychological state, how he treats people, is he confident in himself or not. For example, when the speaker is worried, his body is tense. The voice at the same time sounds strangled and colorless. A sick person speaks in a weak and lifeless voice. The voice of a joyful person sometimes literally "rings with happiness."
In addition, the voice is the basis of the very charisma.
What attracts us to charismatic people? And is it possible to learn to speak in such a way that the sound of our voice is bewitching?
The timbre of the voice is always individual. However, you can always develop the best qualities of your voice - strength, wealth, velvet - if you perform special exercises on the speech technique.
Let us consider in more detail how a confident person’s speech sounds and what qualities should be developed in order to influence listeners.
Signs of confidence in speech:
- Low tone: Confident person usually speaks in a low voice. Why is that? The vocal cords are a very sensitive organ. They are the first to respond to our state of mind and body. Fear, excitement and insecurity cause tension in the body, which affects the vocal cords. In an uncertain person, the voice sounds strangled, pinched and, as a rule, high. A confident person is relaxed: he knows that he will cope with any situation.
In addition, a confident person is unlikely to shout or “raise” a voice at his interlocutors - he knows that he will be able to resolve all the contradictions without it. And if he sometimes has to cry, he does it from the heart, not embarrassed, using all the power of his voice. A relaxed body and a voice set according to all the rules allow you to “roar” so that no one would have the thought that you can not listen to the words of this person. The first rule of confident speech: relax
- Sonority - quality that provides good voice audibility. It is formed, first of all, thanks to the strength and energy that a person puts into the sound. The less energy a person speaks, the worse the voice is heard. How to develop energy? Engage in physical activity! It is noticed that people engaged in physical labor usually have loud and strong voices. "In a healthy body, healthy mind (and voice)." The second rule of confident speech: be active.
- The measured pace of speech: often uncertain people switch to spasmodic speech, because they are subconsciously afraid that they will not be allowed to say or they will not have enough time, or maybe they will not be listened to. Because of this, they begin to hurry, utter unnecessary words, fuss, make unnecessary movements. A confident person does not fuss. He knows exactly what he wants to say, and knows that nothing and no one will stop him from doing this. The third rule of confident speech: do breathing exercises.
Remember, a healthy and physically active person feels more confident than frail and weak. The more energetic and active you yourself, the more interesting and richer your voice sounds.
