hahahaha... indians is politically incorrect- hmmm, there is a lot you need to learn or at least stop commenting on if you don't know. you should come visit where my family is sometime and tell them that ...
Whew, well I'm glad this debate is just a figment of everyone's imagination: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_...me_controversy. I realize though, that for people on the ground it's probably a non-issue and they just want to get on with their daily lives, and I can dig that. If you saw my explanation in the thanksgiving thread and concluded there was truly no point behind what was written besides to offend, then that's truly too bad.

hahaha, you have an quite an imagination
if you knew anything about latinas you may know it's the caribbean latina's that snap their fingers, not exactly my people.

i said nothing about your other comment other than i couldn't be bother to respond to it- we could happily sit with a beer and a smile and go on about that topic for hours, believe me, but the comment from facebook framed it in stupidity- no escaping the offensiveness of that

More regarding volume than tone, my wife is always accusing me of shouting when in my opinion I'm not (she's typically Swiss - anything more than a whisper is shouting).
Maybe typically Swiss German, but NOT Swiss Italian!

My (Swiss) wife is one of those whose normal tone is borderline shouting, as is that of a friend who grew up in Chile, especially when on the phone!

Depends. If you will have a job that deals with costumers a good deal, people will probably take the "niceness" of the voice into consideration.

If it's a car mechanic, who cares if he sings in falsetto or has a Barry White voice?

Of course. Be it for voice or anything else that is extreme enough to be distracting, there are glass ceilings everywhere.

Re: Voice

your voice is an integral part of your personality and of how you come across, and therefore influences your social life and career prospects (of course, depending on what you do).

I have been blessed with a deep bass and often get told on the phone that I sound 'nice'.. Now I'm not a bullshit artist, but my ex boss and colleagues agreed that I had a much easier time convincing people than they did with the very same words...

That really is a nice thought.. (I missed your answer till now)
I'd like to think that voice does have an impact.
Voice changes with emotion though.
I think if people are conscious of their voice, they can perhaps control the pitch. I really cringe around shrill voices.

A low clear voice is nice on the phone, tis true.
A voice that smiles and welcomes is also.
