Don't ask me why but when I read posts I put voices and an image with each individual as I read.

Some of it has to do with what I have read previously of their posts. If their posts in general seem to be a bit cranky for example.

I just realized yesterday that I was doing this (actually assigning voices)

I was reading a post by Aon when it dawned on me and I couldn't say why but when I read her posts I apply this laid back voice kind of low and soothing like a late night smooth jazz DJ. I realized I was doing this and I asked myself why, I talked to her in Chat and she was hopping around as a frog before she transformed. So I couldn't put my finger on why I asigned her a voice.

As a sales rep who works primarily on the phone I find it interesting the images that I assign to my customers (quit acurately in many cases-as I will discover if we eventually meet at a trade show) and I can never tell you why I imagine them a certain way. I just used Aon as an example as the revelation happened when I was reading her post.(i'm not some sort of weirdo stalker)

Anyway I was just curious to see if the rest of you have similar experiences to relate.

Peace

Mikel

Interesting observation. I tend to do the same sort of thing, assigning voices and pictures to people. It is fun to do here, picturing someone from their posts before I call up their profile to look at their photo. I have no way to check my voice selection, but it is fun anyway. I guess that hearing the voices is ok as long as they aren't saying: pick up the gun....shoot the sales rep..... tongue.gif

Interesting concept.

I can't say I do this. Then again, I like to communicate with the mind of another. Partly why I love this medium for discussion. I often find the physical presence of a person, the visual of a picture or the sound of a voice a distraction to getting to the heart of a person. I often intentionally refrain from looking up a picture. For people's physical form or voice is usually incongruent with my image of their mind.

I know, just as wierd as hearing voices......

I'd ask what kind of voice you assign to me, but I'm afraid to know! biggrin.gif

I hear voices, but it has nothing to do with the posts here biggrin.gif .

Seriously, though, for some members I do. Paul's voice is kind of authoritative, like a father's or a corporate suit's. Dave's is a normal guy's voice, except when he gets a bee in his bonnet about something; then he kinda sounds like Yosemite Sam. Mirri's voice is a very soft, feminine one. Maggie sounds like a supervisor at my last place of employment.

I would say an image of the mind is a good discription of what I am hearing and it probably has to do somewhat with the character of what is said in the posts although the Avatar is probably an important factor.

Your voice Elspeth is very proper and reserved yet somehow down to earth at the same time. Might be a combination of reading your short story on Christmas and the Avatar smile.gif

Jason's voice of Barddas, whom I had the pleasure to meet in person was just like I read his voice. (twilight zone music plays in background)

I don't picture voices with a person's postings. I'm alot like Elspeth as I picture the heart of the person I'm talking to. The outside of a person is not really who that person is. I guess that's why when I talk to someone I always look them dead in the eyes...I think I can see into their heart and their eyes reflect who they are. This medium presents a rare opportunity to get to know who people really are before you speak or meet. There are many of us who talk by phone so we have actually put voices with the images of the person we have in our heads. But now when I start hearing voices it's time for someone to call the guys with the white jackets for me, not you, me!

are you making fun of me A? unsure.gif

That's okay I'm used to it. And I don't start out picturing voices I just start hearing them in my head as I read the posts as if the person was talking.

Make fun of me anytime, it makes me laugh. tongue.gif

Hey Raven it's a heavy job but someone's got to pick at you cause you are a fun and pickable guy! I know you have broad shoulders and can take a little ribbing ok?

Go see Raven, he's in charge of voices. I'm in charge of flaky people. Flaky to the left, voices to the right...got it.

Front and center Flakies!
