Hey I just got off the phone, and I had one of those oh, ah-ha, hmm thoughts, so I decided to post it, and solicit feedback.

It seems like there are lots of people who have a problem with talking loud as soon as they get on the phone. Myself included - usually. If I am in a long conversation this isn't the case.

I was thinking, why this might be the case, and this is my theory: You can't see the person you're talking too. Normally if you can't see the person you’re talking to, you will speak in a louder voice to be heard. Suppose you were in the woods, or on the other side of a wall or cubicle. So I think we speak up without thinking about it because it is what we have become accustomed to do.

What do you think? Do you talk loud on the phone?

I think your theory is aces high, Lance. Unfortunately, I am physically incapable of speaking loudly, so I have no experience to back it up.
