Most people know how to recognize a good voice simply because they like it and feel attracted to it. However, it’s not only a matter of taste, and there are reasons why specific voices feel much easier on the ear, and people describe them as smooth.

Good voices usually sound warmer, friendlier, well-modulated, painted, expressive, and controlled. On the other hand, a lousy voice is the complete opposite. It often sounds nasal, not too loud, not too quiet, sarcastic, hesitant, monotonous, and boring. 

However, there’s another quality that many people forget to consider. Good voices also have good speech quality and diction. Here’s an interesting experiment for you: Keep track of how many times people ask you to repeat what you just said. If they are too many, chances are you haven’t won them with your speaking skills. 

Also, mind your consonants. If your “p” is too harsh and your “s” is too loud, again, you might want to consider investing some time in voice exercises for speaking.

But there’s more. Stereotypes.
