It occurs to me that different speakers transmit different imperatives while speaking, and that you can hear something of their personality in their speech and their voice. I will give a few examples of what I pick up on:
Osho: somewhat sleep-inducing, sometimes forceful, often very roundabout, hypnotic
Terence McKenna: free of boundaries and hierarchy, stimulating
Barack Obama: “i have important things to tell you”, an orators voice
Steve Jobs: very clear, direct, to the point
Have you ever tried to listen to people’s voices to hear the ‘subtext’?
