Example text

Tutto questo "per non recare disturbo". La nostra educazione, per cercare di farci mantenere un tono, ci ha portati tutti verso un comportamento fatto di distacco e mancata attenzione al garbo e alla piacevolezza dell'eloquio. Quindi, in realtà, la nostra educazione ci rende maleducati perché una regola base del galateo è proprio la trasmissione di piacevolezza che dobbiamo mettere in atto quando incontriamo una persona. Un'altra cosa molto importante da sapere sulla voce grigia, per non fare confusione, è il fatto che essere grigi non significa essere tristi ma apatici.

Nella realtà dei fatti il 90% delle persone dice "Ti amo" (peraltro provando davvero un forte sentimento) con una voce che invece comunica: "Mi sei poco più che indifferente". Da cosa dipende tutto ciò? L'abbiamo detto più volte: le persone non posseggono il vocabolario della voce e credono che le parole siano tutto. Ovvero soffrono di daltonismo vocale. Ipotizziamo che voglia andare ad una serata di gala e che per qualche strano motivo la mia vista quella sera non sia eccellente. Indosserò un vestito pensando che si tratti del mio frac, mentre in realtà sto indossando (mio malgrado) una giacca con le toppe e la camicia macchiata di sugo.

Creare i colori ed aumentare l'espressività della voce è facile: a seconda di come vengono combinati fra loro, gli elementi espressivi della voce possono generare emozioni anche completamente diverse. Eccoli: - il volume (l'intensità, forte o debole, con cui gli altri ci sentono) - il tono (l'altezza timbrica della nostra voce, acuta o grave) ' - il tempo (lento o veloce, sancisce la distanza fra le sillabe) - il ritmo (la combinazione di parole e pause) - il sorriso (il più efficace strumento per dire "sto bene con te").
