You get judged by your voice

  • Slower-talking speakers are judged to be less truthful, less persuasive, and more passive.
  • Two speakers who utter exactly the same words but one speaks a little faster and louder and with fewer pauses and greater variation in volume will be judged to be more energetic, knowledgeable and intelligent.

  • Ignoring context: Crossed arms don’t mean much if the room is cold or the chair they’re sitting in doesn’t have armrests. 
  • Not looking for clusters: It’s a consistent grouping of actions (sweating, touching the face, and stuttering together) that is really going to tell you something. 
  • Not getting a baseline: If someone is always jumpy, jumpiness doesn’t tell you anything. 
  • Not being conscious of biases: If you already like or dislike the person, it’s going to affect your judgment.

  • Smile. It is even more important than you think. It's a great way to create trust. We judge people to be more pleasant when we are smiling.
  • Expand. Body movements that go up and out are very open and comforting. Anything that is compressing, like lip compression, is conveying stress.

The Shape Of The Name

Almost universally, our minds link sounds with certain shapes or visuals. The sound of B, M, L and O being associated with round shapes and the sound of K, T, P and I giving a picture of a spiky, thin shape.

People tend to perceive names as round or spiky and imagine these personalities on people they haven’t met or seen. Example: Names like Bob or Molly are perceived as round.

This unconscious association is known as the Bouba-Kiki Effect.
