Ever find yourself speaking in a different kind of voice to specific kids of people in your life?

Well goog news, you're not the only one who does this.

It's actually really common phenomenon according to The University of Stirling... and it's all about how you perceive the status of the person you're speaking with. 

People change the pitch end tone of their voice, depending on how dominant they feel in the interaction with another person.

This is generally seen/heard during the job interview process when the individual feels that the person interviewing them is a potential high-powered boss.

Dr. Viktoria Mileva, a postdoctoral researcher at the university says: "If someone perceives their interviewer to be more dominant than them, they raise their pitch.

This may be a signal of submissiveness, to show the listener that you are not a threat, and to avoid possible confrontations."
