Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. – Maya Angelou

Why do we hate the sound of our own voices?

I was reading this article from Neel Bhatt, Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology, UW Medicine, University of Washington and it covered the expected two ways we hear our voice and why we find it “cringeworthy”. I was familiar with this from previous work I have done with audio in both broadcasting, filmmaking, animation, and game design.

What I learned that was new was the impact of our self-perception vs. reality and how this important component of self-identity jars our sense of self. Something to think about. What pictures of ourselves do we have from our senses and how valid are they?
