What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?
I don’t really like the title of the prompt, it makes it seem like we all can’t stand ourselves at all, that’s pretty harsh for something that’s just about not liking your recorded voice or seeing yourself on film. A poll would be interesting to see the percentage of voice or film…
But anyhow, I hate my voice recorded. In my previous jobs I was the one who had to record the voice mail messages (and answer the phone)…so apparently it doesn’t sound as awful as I think if companies don’t mind having my voice be the one that customers hear! lol.
Those voice mail messages, which I always managed to mess up which made me listen over and over to my own voice – torture. ACK!
I looked it up once, I’ll google anything :), and it said that our voices sound funny to us recorded because when we talk we hear ourselves internally and externally where as others (and recordings) hear us externally.
Have great days!!
