音高情景特质Voice Pitch Scenario Characteristic


使用软件Goldwave6.23调节音频文件的音高,来研究三种情景下音高对音频者的特质的评价。研究结果(1) 被试对升高音高的女性的友善、声音吸引力、开朗的评价高于对降低音高女性的评价,而对高音女性的成熟的评价低于对低音女性的评价。被试对降低音高的男性的诚实、友善、能力、声音吸引力、野心、成熟的评价显著高于对升高音高的男性的评价。(2) 在工作情境下,被试更关注男性的能力,在犯罪和出轨情境下,被试更关注说话者是否在撒谎。研究结果支持了假设,对声音的偏好依赖于具体情景所需要的特质。

Using the software Goldwave6.23 to adjust the pitch of the audio files, the evaluation of the cha-racteristics of person of the audio under the three scenarios was discussed. Results: (1) Compared with the lower-pitched female, female with higher voice is thought more friendly, attractive and cheerful. However, the lower-pitched female was concerned more mature. The lowered-pitch male was rated as more honesty, friendliness, ability, sound appeal, ambition, and maturity than male with higher pitch. (2) Under the working situation, subjects are more concerned about the ability of the male; in the context of the crime and derailment, subjects pay more attention to whether the speaker is lying. The results support the hypothesis that the preference for voice depends on what kind of characteristic the particular scenario needs.
