Are you a loud person?

    Children are loud. That's expected.
    Some people are loud as adults. That happens.

    I can be loud. Very, very loud. I am not the best at self-regulating the volume of my speech. Every once in a while I notice that I have gradually gotten louder and louder. It happens especially easily when I am excited about whatever I discuss.

    But usually I try to maintain a fairly quiet baseline.
    And I am working on helping my children to do the same. It isn't always an easy thing. But I do hope that they will develop a better sense of how loud they are than I ever have.

    What about you?
    Are you a loud person?
    Or are you quiet?

    Do you feel that you went through any particular training to be better at either being quiet or being loud?
    Or did it come from genetics or life experience or what?

    Very, it's genetic and a local thing.
    Alaskans in general are really loud people and my family are loud as hell.
    I have learned to tone it down a bit but if I have been around my family for long it comes right out.

    VERY...my voice projects.
    I talk quite a bit...and it just gets out.

    I don't scream, shout or guffaw...
    It's just that my deeper voice is louder.

    I get shushed all the time.
    Not in loud restaurants, but in quiet areas.

    I grew up in a family of seven. Mom, Dad, and five of us kids. Sometimes the only way to be heard over the din was to raise one's voice to the next higher level. In my FOO interrupting is part of the natural order.:rolleyes: I have to mind myself not to do that in most other situations. And I like loud music. If appropriate. Punk should be loud. Marching bands should be loud. A jazz trio... not so much.
    Sig says I'm noisy in the kitchen, clanging pots, pans, lids, dishes. Sometimes I'll beat a lid with a tablespoon in time with what's on the radio, and I love exploring new sounds. So sometimes, I'm loud on purpose. Closing doors... not really slamming, but not being quiet. I like to hear the door shut and the latch click/clack.

    I can be loud when makin' whoopee, when giving or taking... instructions. Asking for fuckee/suckee to be done in a certain way. But I don't like the gagging sounds:eek: that porn favors for deep throat BJs. I can suck dick very quietly.:p

    Normally, I'm a quiet person, but when I get in game mode, be it sports, video or board games, I get extremely loud. I embarrass my self when I catch how loud I get.
