JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Efforts to get someone’s attention can be quite varied. He bought her flowers, give her a gift or extra attention may be one of them. But how can you believe that he’s interested in you? Consider his voice. Because, maybe this is one answer.

A recent study published in the Journal of Nonverbal Behavior states that sound levels can be used as an indication of increasing sexual desire of the opposite sex.

“The voice can communicate social and biological information that can indicate whether someone excited or vice versa,” said Susan Hughes, an assistant professor of psychology at Albright College in Reading Pennsylvania, USA.

Hughes and his team conducted research by studying the behavior of 45 students, average age 21 years. There were 20 male and 25 female students were involved. As many as 79 percent of this group consisted of whites, 12.5 percent of African-Americans, Asians 6.3 percent and 2.1 percent Hispanic.

During the study, respondents using communication via Skype. Their voices were recorded and analyzed. They called and left a voice message after seeing the frontal facial image fictional individuals who receive the message. This fictitious individuals have varying appeal.

“We found that both sexes use a lower voice and show a higher level of excitement when talking with the targets of the opposite sex,” said Hughes.

Hughes initially thought the women would raise his voice control to sound more feminine, but it happened just the opposite.

“It seems to be stereotyped in our culture that a woman’s voice is hoarse and low tone indicating a woman is sexy. This indicates, the motivation to show naked women could be motivated to speak out against the more feminine,” she said.

Hughes said, lowering her voice to show attraction is probably a learned behavior from cultural stereotypes conveyed through the media. “When a woman is naturally lowered his voice, it can be considered as an attempt to sound more seductive or attractive, and because it serves as a signal of romanticism,” said Hughes.

There is much evidence that shows that someone is manipulating her voice when talking with different people and in different situations. For example, a woman’s voice sounded more competent when talking to their bosses rather than subordinates or peers. While the male voice more competent when talking with her friends. People also tend to raise their voice when trying to deceive people.
