Ein sehr guter Arti­kel in der NY Times dar­über, wie sich die Stimme ver­än­dert, wenn Men­schen an Ein­fluss und Sicher­heit gewin­nen. Und es geht auch anders­herum: Lerne Deine Stimme ken­nen und zeige, wer Du bist und wofür Du stehst! Wir lesen:

Sci­ence has not pro­ved the trope that power chan­ges ever­ything. But it does sug­gest, at least, that it chan­ges the vocal cords.

As people gain aut­ho­rity, their voice qua­lity chan­ges, beco­m­ing steadier in pitch, more varied in volume and less strai­ned. Power sounds dis­tinc­tive, crea­ting hier­ar­chies mea­sura­ble through waves of sound.

That is the fin­ding of rese­arch published last year in the jour­nal Psy­cho­lo­gi­cal Sci­ence, adding weight to the idea that a speaker’s power comes not just from words but also acoustics. Cru­ci­ally, it’s not about being loud; just tur­ning up the volume can actually be a sign of rela­tive weak­ness.

“The easiest way to exert aut­ho­rity is by speaking more loudly. But that can just come across as yelling, which can turn people off,” said Adam Galin­sky, a pro­fes­sor at the Colum­bia Busi­ness School, who wrote the paper along with rese­ar­chers from San Diego State Uni­ver­sity. “It’s not the volume, but the abi­lity to con­trol it.”
