Emotion through the voice - Intro to Psychology

  • 0:01 - 0:04
    So, thanks Lauren. So, you know, another way in which we express emotion is
  • 0:04 - 0:09
    through our voice. As it turns out, our voice is harder to control than our
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    face. People can lie with their face more easily, because it's under voluntary
  • 0:12 - 0:17
    control. But our voice is regulated by the autonomic nervous system. And
  • 0:17 - 0:22
    remember the autonomic nervous system, we don't control. So, it's harder to
  • 0:22 - 0:28
    manipulate. And for instance, we also have pitch changes with our voice. And
  • 0:28 - 0:32
    pitch changes might happen when we have voice cracks, when we're nervous or
  • 0:32 - 0:37
    when we cry. So, two good examples of recognize an emotion in the voice, are
  • 0:37 - 0:42
    with young children, and when people are speaking foreign languages. So, for
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    instance, in young children. They may not understand the words, but they
  • 0:45 - 0:50
    clearly understand the emotional tone. So, for instance, if I parent says, oh,
  • 0:50 - 0:54
    isn't that sweet versus no. The child may not understand those words, but
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    clearly understands the emotional tone.
