I am very quiet spoken. It is my nature. Hearing these loud people outside my window unnerves me. I mean it is what it is, but are you a loud or quiet person?

Absolutely, I agree! I would probably say I am some where in between, I can be loud, when talking with friends or family, but I try my best to not be obnoxiously loud..

I speak quietly even with those who are hard of hearing and beg me to speak louder. Then I wonder why some people want ME to listen to THEIR conversations on the phone, it's usually the case in my neighborhood. I suppose I belong to your tribe of quiet people.

Yes why do they find the need to be seen and heard..as if everyone wants to know them.

I'm typically quiet but over the years I've had to learn to speak up louder because my mom is hard of hearing. I also work with kids which requires me to speak over a lot of screaming children at times. Now I feel like I'm either quiet or loud and there is no in between. When I was a kid I was always being yelled at to "speak up!" I was like this is naturally how I talk do you know how hard that is? I clearly learned over the years but my default is usually to speak quietly.

@RebeccasFarm I have to say that to some of the kids I work with, unfortunately, but I try to do it nicely. We have a little girl who speaks Spanish as her first language and English is still very new to her and she speaks so quietly I mean you could hear a pin drop she's so quiet. I was like sweetie I can't understand you, you're so quiet and your class is so loud. I feel terrible. I go above and beyond to figure out what she's saying the one day I figured out she was talking about a place and got out the US map and told her about the states and we finally figured it out. I never wanted to be one of those people who told a quiet kid to speak up because that's their natural voice but sometimes you have to learn to speak up a little to be heard.

Who's being so noisy? I like peace and quiet. We used to have noisy people over across the street at Taco Bell. On the weekends it was as if some choice people had their parties in the parking lot. They did something about it and so it is quiet over there now. And, the house next door to TB used to have some summer parties that went on into the wee hours and went on for days. That has also stopped. I am very thankful.

@RebeccasFarm .......I couldn't stand it. Inconsiderate jerks I'd say. We had an older lady move into the apartment next to us where the family with 6 and one on the way used to live. We have a couple on the other side with two little yappy dogs.

I am probably on the quieter side, but I can get loud if need be. Time and place though - I would never get loud where it'd be considered to be rude.

I'm told my voice can be quite loud. I don't notice it because I can't hear it. But, I learned to talk that way because my parents were hard of hearing.

I can relate to what you are saying, I am the same way. I am soft spoken and cringe when I hear people who are loud and over-bearing. I find that it is not only a voice that can be loud, actions can also be loud and intimidating.

I am a quiet person by nature since I fear offending people over words that I grew up with that do not have offensive tones toward certain people back then that today is considered offensive like my calling out television station C W the Cretin Worship network.

@RebeccasFarm I wish I would be louder. These people are expressing their feelings in a loud way. Many of them don't have diseases or panic attacks. But they are annoying.

I am sometimes louder than I need to be, but I am aware of it and strive to do better. As my kids were growing up, if we would be walking through a parking lot to get home, as we passed other houses I would remind them "Shhhh people might be sleeping" and other things.

The older I get, the less noise I can tolerate, including loud people. I am often loud, but also often soft-spoken. It depends on the situation. My grandfather was nearly deaf and I was able to make myself heard by raising my voice but keeping it low. Other people would raise their voices and he would not hear them because as they got louder, their voices raised in pitch as well. I spent many years working in nursing homes and it takes speaking louder for many residents to be able to hear us. Raising kids kept me using a louder voice. But now that I am older and live alone, I don't like loud noises or voices. Especially in an apartment building with all our opening doors inside the building so you can hear everything around. I hate being able to hear everyone talking to each other way down the hallway, It is annoying.

Oh, that I hate too! Its irritating! I'm a quiet person and it shows not just in the way I talk but in my whole personality. No wonder I dislike noise and loud behaviors. How these people could be so loud is beyond me! Everything about them is just over the top, from the way they speak, to the way they act, everything is excessive. Sometimes to the point of being inconsiderate to the people around them and disregard for boundaries.
