The phone rings and you listen to the voice on the other side. You can hear the voice of the speaker but can you see what the speaker looks like? Well, maybe. So, when you speak up, be careful because your voice may also convey information on your life. When scientists asked volunteers to listen to the recordings of people and rate the voices, they found that the voices rated highest belonged to people having more active lives. Scientists feel that our voice instantly conveys basic information about the gender and age although it may not be true in all the cases. Voices of extrovert people conveyed much more information about them than the voices of people who were introvert.
