If a woman is interested in a man, her voice changes in his presence, and it decreases or increases depending on whether there are competitors nearby. This is the conclusion reached by researchers from the University of Sussex, writes Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
They conducted an experiment in which 30 men and women were asked to imagine themselves dating each other. After the couples talked, experts analyzed various aspects of dating.
As a result, it turned out that if a woman liked a man, she, communicating with him without strangers, unconsciously made her voice more sonorous. If there were women nearby, to whom he also paid attention, the timbre of her voice became lower than usual.
As for the man, he lowers his voice when dealing with a woman he likes, the experiment confirmed. This can be explained by a subconscious desire to look more masculine, which is understandable. But the researchers found it difficult to interpret the change in the female voice in different situations.
Although it can be assumed that lowering the timbre of a woman's voice means a hidden warning both to possible rivals and to a potential chosen one. In general, the experiment showed once again that in matters of gender, people still have a lot in common with representatives of the animal world.
