The pitch of the untrustworthy voice was much lower than the male deemed most trustworthy. McAleer says this is probably because a higher pitched male voice is closer to the natural pitch of a female, making the men sound less aggressive and friendlier than the lower male voices.

That guy said this move takes place "IN A WORLD," but I'm not sure I believe him.

My husband would agree to this.  He said he was interested when he saw me, then fell in love instantly as soon as I said "Hello."  And this was BEFORE the movie.

I had a girlfriend who got really pissed when she found out I'd been dating someone else when I met her. I thought she'd be flattered that I had a choice between two women and picked her. Turns out she was furious that it hadn't been love at first sight.

I thought that was a rather brilliant headline, +100 subs.

Should at the least be a contender for headline of the week.

Same here, I was dating someone when I met my wife, but the day I met her, it was a beautiful parenthesis in my life, where nothing mattered but her.  Next day, I went to my old self.  I saw her again about 2 years later, and it was like I saw her yesterday.  This time I did not have a girlfriend, and I never let her out of my sight since.  Did I fail to say I was 19 when I first met her?

/Got no clue how I got so lucky.  Best 20 years of my life, looking at her amazing... eyes.

Richard Pryor had a routine about how men talk in a different pitch when talking to women, compared to talking to men.

I have a friend who tried to hook me up with one of her friends. We met up with some of her friends and there was the one scary faced sort that broke my poker face. Srsly a radio face.

Lol! You should have kept that one to yourself. Most women want to feel special, not "I picked you out of two" special, more like "I met you and there was no one else that compared" special. And definitely not special Ed.

and to go all Joe Rogan:  Comedy Police, every other black comic in the 00's had a bit on how black guys answer phones:

male friend:  *ring ring* *checks caller ID* "What, motherfarker?  Ayyyyye, whats up, my nubian?"

girlfriend:  "*ring ring* *checks caller ID*  "Ohhhhhh, hey girl!  Nawwww.....I was just hangin' out, thinking about you.  Girl, mmmm-mmm-mmmm, we need to get together tonight, knowmsane?"

According to this book written by Nobel prize winnar and such ... we have a huge and fast subconscious pattern matching system below our slow thinking system.

In this way, we can quickly scan the environment and figure out where to put our energies.


In other words, first impressions isn't some mystical awesome thing. It is a very crappy pattern matching system.
First impressions are very easy to fool if you take the time to practice like conmen do.

One male voice was overwhelmingly voted the least trustworthy, "the sort of guy you'd want to avoid,"

The pitch of the untrustworthy voice was much lower than the male deemed most trustworthy... because a higher pitched male voice is closer to the natural pitch of a female, making the men sound less aggressive


Got it.   Women love timid men with high pitched voices.  Good to know.

Thanks, NPR!
