    Default Beyond Verbal: The Science of Emotions

    I just came across this very interesting analytic tool for deciphering a person's emotions from his/her speech. http://www.beyondverbal.com/# Try it yourself!

    I used it myself, and found the results (below) eerily accurate. As a bit of background: I recently met this INTJ girl with whom I felt I shared a good amount of compatibility. We went on 5 dates and had a really good time. However, today I finally concluded that, despite having a good time with her, we don't share enough life goals to work out in the long run. I ended up letting her know that while I appreciated our time together, I didn't think things would work out and that we shouldn't see one another (romantically) anymore. I just picked a random passage on the internet and read it in what I thought was my typical voice...




    Could be a bunch of bollocks, but I thought it was fun nonetheless.

    I call bollocks. I was in a quiet place and very eloquent.

    My mic works just fine. And I tried more than once.

    So I take it you saw visual feedback on the input that it was being heard? That is, the little picture of the microphone had green, yellow, and red bars moving up and down on the screen while you were recording? I ask this because I tested it on random youtube videos and it worked. It seems to be more likely that it is an error on your part.

    Yes. In perfect sync with the volume of my voice, I might add.

    It seems to be more likely that it is an error on your part.
    I turned on my microphone and clicked the button to begin recording: I did my part. There was no error on it.

    Do you have any recorded youtube videos on here? Any audio recordings? I want to test it. It just seems so bizarre that it isn't working for you... Do you pause a lot?

    I don't have any youtube videos on here anymore, and if there are any audio recordings I can't recall the threads I posted them in.

    I didn't pause at all.

    The INTP monotone broke science.
