Have you ever tried to judge a person based on the tone and quality of their voices?

Not consciously. But humans do judge people based on their voice subconsciously. This may be why we see this.

I have not tried but the way people speak can some times reveal their personality, the preppy, annoying people are easy to picked out in such a way, same a lot of people who act like douchebags, aside from that not really.

I guess if the person sounds angry all the time that could mean they are angry but a voice doesn’t reveal much unless it’s to one extreme or another.

How one speaks can reveal their feelings of insecurity that others may unconsciously detect, which can bias their judgement of that person.

Generally yes as I can tell a lot about a person by a persons tone, cadence and speed of articulation. That said I can’t help but laugh when people tell me I have such a calm soothing voice. If only they knew! lol!

Yes. Especially when considering dating someone.
I wouldn’t use the term “judge” as in judging the persons totality and value as a human, but judge as in, is this person lively, humorous, well spoken, articulate?

I desire lively minds and wit and humor so if someone is uber shy, quiet, socially awkward and can’t keep the conversational ball rolling it is not going to be a match for me.
