Most of the meaning of your spoken words comes from the tone of your voice, not from the words.
Suppose you are the type of person who automatically raises your voice to become the dominant speaker. In that case, you may be damaging your ability to be a better communicator and secure cooperation.
Increasing your voice creates stress and tension that often escalates into an argument or physical confrontation.
Yelling is a method used to control a situation by dominating the other person. When we get loud, the other person is forced into submission. In turn, it tells them to comply, or there will be punishing consequences.
Listening rarely happens during a submissive state. Instead, the listener is waiting for a pause to interject a rebuttal to defend against a verbal attack.
Once we know how shouting is perceived, we must be careful to regulate our voice to a volume and tone that does not come over as aggressive or dominant.

Aphantasia was first described in the early 1800s by Francis Galton in a paper on mental imagery. It was not until 2015 that the phenomenon was further studied and the term was coined.
One of the major studies was with a patient who had undergone a minor surgery in 2005 and later could no longer generate visual images within the ‘mind’s eye’. The details of the study were published in 2010, which led to many others coming up with similar symptoms.
This was a technique used by the researchers to help test the image forming inside the brain of the individuals.
The experiment led to the finding that a recent viewing of an image had no correlation with the imagining of the image.
