BQ: How about when u look different in pics rather than what you look like in the mirror?

Haha. It's kinda like we don't know reality

    You hear yourself from the inside. That's why you sound different on a recording, because then you hear yourself as others hear you. I suggest you get with a voice teacher to help in alleviatng the nasal sound. You need to learn to project your head tones through your mouth rather than through your nose.

    No, I like it. I think I sound much better on tape than I sound in my head.

    The mirror thing is another story.

    You are correct in the sense that we have a different perception of ourselves from how others perceive us. As to which perception is reality, that may be a question for the philosophy department.

    My voice only get distorted when I record on tape. Once I got a digital recorder my true voice came back to me and i fell in love with it.

    As for the pics; I just quit printing them so I can see them on the computer and delete the ones i do not care for. Piece of cake, wouldn't you say?

    I like the way mine sounds. And maybe the pics are reality. Wouldn't that be horrible.

    yeah i don't like my recorded voice. it does that because we are not also hearing our voice through the vibrating bones in our skull and mandible. it sounds different when sounds travel through solid objects than when it travels through air.
