I've gotten the same impression of some people. Absolutely everything they do is loud...talk, sneeze, cough, and even whisper! Sometimes I find it funny, but most of the time, it's not a good thing. I've known many of these types of people, and I think it just might be because they may be hard of hearing and don't know that they're actually talking or doing things that loud. As far as kids go, a lot of times they just don't know better, so they talk loudly.

I think that not all the people that are loud have a hearing problem, i think sometimes that is the way they have always been and they think that is normal.I hate it when i am trying to concerntrate typing and there are people talking loudly.I have in the past walked out of a pub because one persons mouth was getting on my nerves as they were so loud and over powering.

I definitely agree with you that not everyone who is loud has a hearing problem. That's not always the case. Being loud has become normal to them at one time or another, so they think it's acceptable when it's really not! I don't like when that happens either. I think people should be considerate of others.

Omg I can't stand it. Every thought that you have on your mind is blared out by all of their problems which are just frivolous. If you even politely tell them they are talking too loud they get offensive and go off like an atomic bomb.

I agree with you Samafayla. I know some from my circle of friends who are like this. I do not want to hurt them by directly saying I do not like loud people, so I start correcting it in myself. Whenever I talk, I always try to make sure I do not talk too loud. In that way, they can sense I do not like loud people. By my example, they can slowly follow.

Hi JJ, My son is the only person I know who seems to speak as loud as blowing a turmpet especially on the phone, often times I have to say to him 'can you turn down the volume' meaning his voice..it can be annoying if you are watching something on TV as well as you can never hear what is being said on there, then he wonders why I turn the volume up on that! LoLo

I have found that all of my children take after their dad as he is soo loud and so are they no matter what they are doing or who and when aswell as where they are when they are chatting to people.One of my sons has now got his manly voice as his voice has broken so he is deep and loud.Where as my other son is high pitched like a girl and his voice tends to grate on you after a while so i can not wait until his voice breaks.The only time when i am loud is when i have to get my voice to raise above their voice.

I really hate it when people are loud, it drives me crazy. I have a friend, who talks really loud. Even when she is right next to me, she is almost yelling at me. Then, I talk at a normal volume, and she's like WHAT!!! So, by the end of the conversation, I'm yelling, too. If there was something wrong with her hearing, it wouldn't bother me. But, I know she can hear just fine, she just talks so loud it drowns out what other people say.

I know what you mean also when they are talking to a person on a mobile phone they also talk loud or should i say shout.I think that if you have to talk loud on a phone then you should at least move away from the person you are sitting near.Have you noticed that loud people have to have the tv up loud aswell, i have aswell as that they have to have a loud ring tone on their phone.

Hi jugsjugs, luckly that people around me don't do this, maybe people who always speak loud has a hearing problem, or he just has a habit to speak like that.

I think that, if you work with people who have hearing problems, you can get into the habit of talking louder. I meet a lot of older people so find myself talking louder at work.

I don't think anyone can help sneezing loudly, but when talking they should know how to modulate the voice. It is really annoying when people are unnecessarily loud.

There are people with hearing problems, then there are people with no problem but that is the way they have always been, then there are the people that are loud as they want to make sure that they are noticed.I do get rather angry when i am trying to talk to someone quietly and then all the other person and i can hear is the mouthy person.

To be honest with you I think it has to do with the earphones that people have stuck in their ears all the time. I think people are going deaf and that is the main reason they are talking so loud. My mom has been deaf in one ear forever and she always spoke very loud. I seriously think in 10 years or so the kids that started early with electronics being stuck in their ears all the time there will be an increase in people being deaf.

The thing that gets me is that the people that do have a hearing problem like my husband who has a hearing aid tends not to wear it and that is one of the reasons i think he shouts.My sons have all had their hearing tested and they all seem to shout and their ears have no problems at all.They have never used ear phone either so perhaps they shout as their dad tend to shout when he is talking.

I have a friend that talks really loud and fast. I don't know if it has anything to do with her being Pueto Rican or not. I don't think so, but that is what she blames it on.I know someone else who talks and laughs really loud. We were at a crowded bar, and someone asked me if he was there and I said "I didn't hear him so probably not" He is so loud you could hear him above everyone else. I don't know why they do this. There is nothing wrong with their hearing.

I know what you mean as there is a girl that used to go to the pub with us and she was loud all the time and we all knew when she had turned up in the pub and so did every one else who lived a few roads down.Even when there is no noise some people tend to shout when they talk and like you say they do not have a hearing problem so why do they have to be soo loud.

Tell me about it! :P I would admit sometimes I tend to be loud too especially when I'm too excited or too happy and sometimes I forget that I'm in public place :P my best friend would tell me shhhh!! haha! When I first landed in the middle east I was shocked with how the people talk. I am loud at times but I have never seen people talking out louder than what I'm used to or what I used to see when I was still in my own country. One time I got really offended when one of my arabic colleague spoke to me and she was like yelling at me. Then another arabic fellow came to talk her in their language and it really sounded like they are fighting. I didn't want to assume anything so I went to ask my friend who's been here in Dubai for more than a year. She said I should not to get offended if most of the time their tones are high when talking because that is a normal thing to them. People who are newly arrived here all feels the same thing. But sometimes, even if I know that they are naturally loud, the sound of it gives me migraine all the time. I meant no offense to the arabic people. I am just sharing my experiences and my thoughts.

My oldest daughter is a very i mean extremely loud speaker on the phone. I don't know how her friends put up with her, I have nicknamed her 'foghorn' because we can hear her through everything. She does not speak loudly in face to face conversations but on the phone, i think she believes her voice may get lost along the way. It drives me insane as she interupts conversations, tv shows, quiet time, people sleeping and she sometimes she does this from the other side of the house.

Why thank you I am one of those people. I can't control myself no matter how hard I try. It runs in my family to be a loud mouth. Guess its genetics.

i am from a family who speaks loud, though not all are like this. most of us are musician and we are used to speaking loud during work hours that we are used to it already. but we are loud happy talkers. some people speaks as if they are angry and fighting but we are not like that. except when we are really having a discussion har har har. i can say that some people also in our country speaks loud specially when they live near railways and bus stations. just an observation.

yes some people do. Sometimes I do to, but for me I use to work in a factory and I did not realize that I brought the volume of my voice home with me. some people might not be able to hear how loud they talk. my wife and child naturally talk loud. My wife says that people can not hear her on the other end of the line when she is using the phone. I talk soft, but sneeeze loud.

I deal with this where I work a lot. I work in a store and I often can hear my customers on the phone. Sometimes they sound like they're trying to get my attention and I'll respond only to realize they're on the phone! Oops. They also like to yell at each other when they're in separate isles. I don't like when they're complaining about someone or something really loudly. Keep that stuff to yourself! I also really don't like being able to hear every little detail of what sounds like it should be a private discussion. I mean ok yes, I'm guilty of being loud sometimes when I'm excited about something. I come from a loud family. But when I'm out in public, I try to keep my voice down so everyone doesn't have to listen to me ;p

Hi, there are only two reasons that I know why some people speaks so loudly: they want attention - they want other people to take notice on them; these are the proud people, the kind of personality who talks a lot. And the other reason is a kind of disability, a hearing disability. A person with a hearing disability talks so loud because he/she thinks that conveying his/her message is easier done when talking to another person in a loud voice manner.

i've also noticed this,also my 2 aunties come from yorkshire whereas the rest of my aunties live in norfolk and suffolk,and the yorkshire ones are much louder than the others,so maybe it also depends where you come from

Because they suffer from inferiority complex and want to draw the attention of others - that is why they are so loud!

I think there are times when I talk too loudly. It tends to be when i'm having an animated conversation with someone I get on well with & I dont realise that my volume is gradually getting higher. However, I'm always having people tell me to speak up or repeat what i've said because they cant hear me My mum has the quietest sneeze I've ever (or should that be NEVER) hears but my husband and son are at the other end of the scale!

As to why they are loud, well, it has different reasons. For some, it's their nature, maybe since their childhood they've been like this, or maybe influenced by their environment. And for some, they are just simply lacking attention. And always wanting to be overheard by others, just for the sake of letting others know their presence or whatever things going on to their lives, and this latter reason is most of the time annoying. Most of the people who lacks attention have wrecked, pitchy and annoying voice. The whole family in my neighborhood are these type of persons. Their normal way of talking is in yelling voice, but for me it's more of being not respectful of their neighbors at all. They wouldn't mind if they bother others already, as long as they could giggle, yell, scream to the maximum they could. And when you complain, they play as a victim.
