I've noticed that often when I am put in any situation where I confront people, I reflexively speak in this ultra serious mono tone voice. I almost sound like Dick Cheney. I gotta stop it.

I think subconsciously I started it as my own sort of joke, to act in a really boring serious manner I guess. These things are difficult to pin down.

Everyone says I speak in a monotone voice, but I don't hear my own voice as being monotone. People with monotone voices get a bad wrap because they can't control it. Inside I am enthusiastic but on the outside I come out as boring. It kind of sucks because I honestly have no control over it.

I do this as well, or I speak in an unintentionally condescending tone. No one else has seemed to notice it aside from my mother. So that's good. I guess it's just kind of my defense so I feel less stupid...
