Voice Recognition as a Measure of Self-Attitude and Relatedness

Voice Recognition as a Measure of Self-Attitude and Relatedness Abstract The human voice, recorded or heard on the radio, has been used in research concerned with personality judgments, communication theory, and psychotherapy. As a form of expressive behavior it has, like art productions and handwriting, a relationship to a person's mental and emotional characteristics.

Research by Wolff,7 Huntley,5 and others3 suggests a close bond between the recognition of one's own expressive behavior and the acceptance of a person by himself and by others. The present research reports on exploration of interpersonal relationships using voice recognition as a means of acceptance.

Abstract

Abstract The human voice, recorded or heard on the radio, has been used in research concerned with personality judgments, communication theory, and psychotherapy. As a form of expressive behavior it has, like art productions and handwriting, a relationship to a person's mental and emotional characteristics. The "interpersonal" psychologies hypothesize a dynamic relationship between a person's concept of himself and his acceptance of others. Research by Wolff,7 Huntley,5 and others3 suggests a close bond between the recognition of one's own expressive behavior and the acceptance of a person by himself and by others. The present research reports on exploration of interpersonal relationships using voice recognition as a means of acceptance. The experimental population consisted of 33 boys receiving intensive inpatient psychiatric treatment at the Astor Home for Children. Their ages ranged from 7 to 15. The boys were in good physical health and of normal intelligence. Diagnostically the behavior References 1. Colvin, R. W.: Friendship Selection as a Defense of the Self-Concept. 2. Colvin, R.
