Are you still relying on written word in your search for love online? It may be harming your chances to connect with a wonderful woman who loves you for who you are. The reason is that written word doesn’t allow you to connect to the person behind the screen properly, while voice communication makes your relationship warmer and allows to build trust.
Why voice is better than written words
According to a recent research by California scientists, voice messages are accepted by recipients with a greater trust than written ones.
Berkeley researcher Juliana Schroeder from the University of California said that voice conveys natural cues that people are able to decipher on unconscious level, thus allowing the speaker appear more thoughtful and genuine. This is not possible in case of viewing a written letter or reading an Internet post.
Thus, the way a message is conveyed affects how the person who is getting it feels about it.
In the research, people were getting messages as full videos, voice audio files, or transcripts. Then they were asked to rate whether the author was intelligent, cultured, warm, or vice versa, appeared superficial and cold.
It was expected that voice messages would be taken better than written words, but what was surprising is that video and audio messages received similar ratings.
In other words, you don’t even need a video to appear warmer and more genuine; voice is all it takes.
Particularly, if the receiver of the message and the communicator had an issue, voice helped to convince the listener to consider the opposing point of view as worthy.
The researchers concluded, “If mutual appreciation and understanding of the mind of another person is the goal of social interaction, then it may be best for the person’s voice to be heard.”
Talk to women, don’t just write
Obviously, in the experiment researchers didn’t have the goal of dating a woman with a purpose of a long-term relationship. It was about valuing the quality of communication and the best way to deliver a message.
In dating video could be extremely important, especially if you have not met in person as yet.
This is why the best way to date is to ask women to meet on Skype. In real life you would be seeing the person regularly if you were to establish a relationship.
It works the same in international dating. Discussing things via Skype definitely beats exchange of letters, particularly, it speeds it up substantially, and now we have it confirmed by science. Voice is better than written words!
