Things You Think Only You Do

 

Whenever i hear myself in a video or something to me, it sounds way higher pitched than when I hear myself talking

Is it just me?

  • It's just a science thing.You imagine what you're saying in your brain as you say it and it comes up the same as everyone else in the world hears you as on video.

  • Its the other way around for me, and I always think I sound high-pitched until I hear my voice played back to me

  • The gentlemen before has part of the truth, but basically since you were born your brain records and registers your voice and amplifies it through your ears only to produce better thoughts to go with your last word other wise you would answer the question you just asked and so forth, that's why if you feel different to some point you basically end up talking to yourself.

  • The video is how you actually sound. Have you ever listened to someone else and listened to them in a video? they sound exactly the same

  • This has nothing to do with the cocktail part effect, this happens because the meat between your mouth and your ears works as a lowpass filter that exaggerates the bass in your own voice, but only to your own ears. Other people (or a microphone) hears your real voice without the exaggerated bass.

  • Basically when you talk you hear what you think you sound like as well as what you really sound like
