i do hate when people just suddenly talk out loud. here in my place my sister would often talk at the top of her lungs although she can talk much gentler voice. as if she is not aware of how loud her voice was.and so i do often remind her that she does not need to shout as she can was just talking face to face with people here. and no need to shout as if the person was on a very far distance from her. i used to guilty of that too buy i have learned how to modulate my voice and don't speak too fast and just try to talk normally.

I hate people who talk very loudly, too. I don't think it is necessary in many circumstances. They could just talk calmly and the effect of their words would be even greater. On the other hand, I like people who are very convinced on the things they say. But I don't think that shouting to someone will make a stronger point.

People are just like that annoy me so much and I really didn't like with any type of noisy things. I mostly argue to listen to people who always speaks loudly even if she or he didn't have to. There is one reason for sure why people speak loudly, it is the reason of culture. There are races,tribes and family that tend to be naturally boisterous and therefore, louder. Some accept being loud is a sign of having a good life. That's in my opinion. Thank You.

I always talk loudly because I grew up with a bunch of loud mouths. This is my natural way of speaking. To me it is normal. I have tried, but I don't understand how to control the volume of my voice. But, the only reason I would want to do that is so I will sound more like an educated person.

I wonder if people would talk so loud, if they knew how rude they were being? I believe a lot of people think that to be heard they need to yell, which isn't the case at all. What do we really need to make sure we are all being heard? Eye contact and a soft gentle soothing voice and active listening. I know it's hard for some to follow these simple rules, because they have been being rude for far to long. Good for you for speaking normally and at a pace that everyone can understand.

Ha ha, speak very loudly, and I really don't like. Special, in the sitting room, suddenly someone loudly speak, wow, really terrible. I like quiet, like a quiet to speak, explain, no hurry to slow to speak. So, to hear him talk is also a kind of enjoyment. Happy every day!

Hmm hotsummer I think we are very like minded :). Usually I have noticed this behaviour among two sets of people- 1. Very old people who have hearing problems so speak very loudly. We really cant do anything in this case and have to really adjust with them. 2. But the worst is people who speak very loudly just to draw everyone's attention. I have met a lot of people who bellow even for small things and sometime I have even told them I aint deaf.. But then if falls on deaf ears ;) They continue to be so and sometimes I do get really irritated.

yes me too....cannot stand people who talk loudly.....Even my husband is very loud and I close my ears and tell him to whisper, because is whisper is like normal talking....Here in my country women are also chain smokers and that makes their voice so harsh and rough. The worst thing is that such people are not aware of quality of their voice and they feel insulted if we tell them to speak softly. Well!!! what can we do....there are all kinds of people in the world and you cannot go and give unwanted advice to each one.......all we can do is just close our ears or run away..

I'm like your sister too. hehehe. I think the reason why we say out loud because we want others to noticed us. I think it is because we want others attention. I used to that also. I think it'll take a long time for me to change that attitude. But the way I talk is really so loud but it is not just normal voice. I have a friend that really speaks too loud. And it makes me irritated. But it's fine. I wanna learn to understand anybody.

I also used to have the same problem but not at all the time. I don't know how to control my voice. I think I make the highest range voice of which makes the teachers to attract towards us. I think due to this voice teachers consider me as the naughty boy. I think I should have to change this. How to adapt voice control in me ? Can any one help me ?

Some people talk loud because they don't hear well. Others speak loud because they have the feeling if they don't do so nobody will listen to them. Kids do the same. Also the more noise there is, the louder people speak, the louder the rest is speaking as well. I also do find that people in western countries are way more loud as elsewhere. It hurts my ears and it shows if I am on vacation and there are people from my country around there (so I leave). I always tell my kids to speak gentle.. that way you do make people curious about what you say. I also put down the tv sound not that loud so they have to be quite to listen what is said.

I realized i talk loudly too and sometimes in an offending manner because some people would get surprised so hard, whenever i suddenly speak up. Hence, i now try to modulate my voice and speak in a nicer manner. That way, i don't offend people. And it's nice to be like that, indeed.

good day hotsummer, with reference to your main topic, honestly, i was one of those people who are now talking quite loudly. this is due to my vertigo. as one of my ear is somehow damage, and the effect, i cannot hear my voice that easy. but before, i was one of the guys who really talk so soft. as my friends always tells me, my voice is as soft as an angel's voice. however due to the work that i have had before, my ears was somehow damaged. especially my right ear. as a result, i need to raise up sometimes my voice. but it does not mean that i am angry, only, i need to speak loudly sometimes. and to your situation, try to ask your sister to lower down her voice. perhaps, she is not that aware. then try to approach her, might be she is also suffering from a vertigo symptoms. after all, she is your sister. you will be the first person to understand her if ever.

It reminds me of a colleague whose voice is so loud whenever he talks. There was a time when some students would come to my office and complained that they were so afraid of him because of his loud voice. One time he called a student to answer his question and the the student got so stunned of his loud voice that the student got rattled and forgot what to answer him;))

For the people who talk loudly, it is often difficult to make out whether they are talking or shouting. Some people just have this habit of talking loudly as though the person they are talking to is deaf. Its nice to know that you have developed a softer tone of talking.

That is ow some people talk all the time. I don't like it when people talk so loud to me. I know my sister is just loud for no darn reason. Everyone is always telling her about how loud she is. I can be loud when I am mad with someone though. It will get ugly if they are not listening to me either. LOL
