how do you talk?
    #4057860 - 04/15/05 08:45 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

how do you talk?
You may choose only one
You use a loud assertive voice that is easily heard by anybody in close range and to a lesser extent a farther range (lets say across a large room)
You speak with a regular voice. People near you can hear just fine but people a few feet away would have a hard time catching every word.
Do you speak very quietly, even though you are not always aware you are doing so. You will hear "pardon" many times
Are you a mumbling rambling type? a person that maybe knows what they are saying in their head but when it comes out their mouth its a mish mash of slurred words and inaudible phrases. A listening observer might catch the odd word or two (think hunter S.
Slurs a bit and also mumbles but If something has to be said it will come out so everybody gets the message
hardly ever speaks unless directly spoken too and even then it is one or two word answers

I speak normally, unless I drink, then I start to get a little loud and obnoxious... when I get sloshed I slur a little bit :P

When sober, I'm told that I talk intellectually. I run into the "whats that word mean" problem somewhat frequently. Damned my extensive vocabulary and use of it.

People seem amazed that I don't have a southern accent because I'm from Georgia. Dad's from Ohio so I really have a subtle Midwestern accent. A friend of mine from South Dakota was amazed I that I'm from Georgia.

I think im a really lazy speaker. Sometimes, my voice is deep, sometimes it not, sometimes it quit, sometimes loud, i mumble alot....I have a hard time controlling it. But when im saying somethign i can hear myself very clearly, other can't though.

I talk with a weird mean attitude for some reason. I don't hear it like that in my head but I heard a recording of me and I wanted to rip my throat out. so to fix this, I drag out my words a little longer.

I talk in a loud voice that tendes to carry across long distances real well. I have to keep an ear out when Im in a small room.

If Im in a good mood.....I get even louder.

I have been asked to "tone it down a lil" on many occasions.

hmmm I wonder if the louder the voice, the more self assured and confident the person is.

I mumble unless I'm around someone who I give a shit about. then my tone, inflection, and delivery all change and I speak clearly and plenty loud.

I really need to see a speech therapist some time. I'll sometimes get excited and try to say something all at once, and end up stuttering a lot. And I tend to say "um" a lot, and sometimes will leave sentences unfinished. Sometimes it's a miracle that anyone understands me. But I have noticed that I tend to speak more clearly when I'm really stoned.

I hardly ever speak unless directly spoken to. And then I'm usually too soft-spoken to be heard, and give short answers. It's awful, I need to get over it.

I rarely speak unless spoken to.  People say I should talk more and it pisses me off.  If I have something important to say, I will open my mouth and say it.  Fuck off.  :smile:

i used to run my mouth all with nothing really important to say and people would think i was weird.

They were probably right.

i picked regular, but it depends on my mood and the social situation. i find that a lot of men tend to try and dominate conversations and don't really listen to a word I say. when that happens i either give up and stop trying to converse, or what i've been trying to do these days is just keep talking until i'm done, and get louder when they cut me off in order to assert myself.

with my actual friends this doesn't happen too often, because they actually make a point to have respect for me. but a lot of non-anarchist men are fucking annoying to talk to for that reason.
