To sound more appealing on the phone, drop your intonation at the end of each sentence.
You know how a voice rises at the end of a question? Just repeat the last sentence and hear your voice rise up at the end. Then do the opposite to receive a charisma boost at any time.
Imagine a judge delivering a verdict; "This case is closed". Feel how the intonation of the word "closed" drops.
Lowering the intonation of your voice at the end of a sentence broadcasts power and makes you sound more credible.
Martin Snyder these tips are all such BS...like explaining to people that if only they had a prettier face, people would do more for them....sure you can adjust around the edges, and experience helps a ton, but peoplez talk the way they talk.....Michael Kelemen: Martin I tend to agree with you that most of this advice is dumb because it takes so much work to change habits that no one is going to do it. That said, a mutual friend of ours tells me that he deliberately speaks differently when he makes a business call and believes it works.Sandra Mccartt voices can be trained to get rid of nasal twangs, high pitch and diction. Ask anybody from Texas who has ever recorded and listened to their voice. I worked in television in another life and we all had to be trained in the announce booth until we didn't sound like hicks and learned to put the "g" on the end of the word.
