    I tend to get voluminous the more excited I get. But overall my voice carries unfortunately and I tend to regret how clearly I can be heard given some the faux pas I commit.

    I soften my voice a lot, so it's not uncommon that people can't catch what I'm saying. When speaking in a formal tone I am at normal volume but tend to rattle a bit.

    I don't have bad hearing.. but mumbling, grumbling, low-tone voices are not something I'm accustomed to trying to hear, particularly in loud places. Try to speak up, or don't get upset that I can't hear you. Because while it may be a liiiittle annoying that my voice can drown out yours during a heated conversation, at least you can hear what I'm saying.
    The problem is that I seem to have only two volume settings: One is quiet and calm, the other is loud (maybe medium-loud) and pissed off. I'm aware that I mumble, so when someone can't hear me, I speak loudly and clearly, with obvious enunciation, so I T-A-L-K....L-I-K-E....T-H-I-S, and hopefully don't have to repeat myself again. Of course, then it sounds like I'm being a smartass, which maybe I partially am, but the fact that I have to raise my voice in the first place is kind of taxing, as you pointed out/ noticed, so it does kind of get me annoyed. A notoriously loud-spoken coworker once asked me "Why can't you speak up, without the attitude?"

    My voice is medium but I talk a lot in social.
    I make sure to interact warmly and correctly
    But at home I talk to myself.. sign of loneliness and talkless people
    I wish my family doesn’t see me in mornings because I can’t reply the good mornings
    Hot yet cold.. Haha
    I talk to you guys in my imagination
    Perhaps it’s because I’m a mad INTJ
    or an ENTJ with the passion to guide
    If I’m an INFJ, I’m mad mad mad.
    I’d be impressed if I was.
    Anyways.
    Imagine this is the best thing you've ever read.

    Imagine being a loud person and having to speak up!! I'm nearly always sarcastic when I have to speak up because I almost feel like "HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY NOT HEAR ME?! I AM CONSTANTLY TOLD TO BE QUIET! ARE YOU DEAF!??!"

    You know though, from the other side of the grass.. it is very deflating for the ego sometimes to be told to lower one's voice constantly. It takes the wind right out of the sails. To me, more so than speaking up because someone can't hear.

    What I hate are people who insist on giving maybe half their attention when I'm speaking to them. Then they ask me to repeat it because they weren't quite listening. The next thing that comes out of my mouth could be the loudest thing they ever hear in their life. Could because I may just walk out the door in disgust instead.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Oh dear, my temper is so short for this kind of thing! My mom she'll get mad, but usually because she talks at us (aka doesn't get our attention before talking) and then gets upset when we don't listen to her.

    No. People tell me to speak up a lot of times and it pisses me off because after a certain point I feel like I'm screaming. Some times it even hurts my throat. Sorry I can't talk any louder with my normal voice and I don't feel like yelling just now so deal with it and pay more attention.

    Yeah, I can imagine, and I don't doubt that.
