I have no idea what that means. But anyway.
Does it weird you out to hear your own voice on a voicemail message or recording?
Exactly. It's like, "Do I really sound like that??" Ew.
Obviously the extreme difference in sound perception is coming from the fact that you are not just hearing your voice with your inner outer, when it's played back to you. It's just straight outer ear picking up the vibrations.
Why is it, that I sound so much better in my own inner ear, than my outer ear? I bet a scientist could tell me. But until he shows up, I'll just accept this phenomenon and try to minimize my stank face when I accidentally hear my own voice played back to me.
Be open to the fact that your self-perception may not always be correct.
