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?"
    I hear you, there. If I speak louder, it is never much louder, but if I have to speak very loudly, my "inflection" pisses people off.

    I am far from being a soft spoken kind of a person... I speak loud, I laugh loud, when I am in a room you probably are well aware of my presence

    Sometimes I am told that I'm shouting when I don't realize it! :P

    I actually used to be fairly quiet and I do still mumble on occasion. Mostly I think my volume is okay, but I tend to get too loud when I'm exited.

    Do I speak loud? YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just felt like saying that.

    Actually, I speak at a normal volume I think. Sometimes I get louder when I'm exited like @DisneyGeek

    It depends on how comfortable I'm feeling.

    I am naturally low key, until you piss me off, and I have found out pissing off people is relative, on the scale of relativity its difficult to piss me off. In conclusion, if you piss me off, you probably deserve it ten fold. Putting things into context I get loud when i am angry.

    I did not vote because I do speak moderately loud, somewhere between very loud and medium loud, and there was not a choice for that.

    I am capable of being discreet if I can see others near, but if I cannot see them, chances are they will hear me. I've had numerous faux pas because of this.

    I've always been told that my voice carries, especially since it's high pitched. It's especially hard for me to keep it down when I laugh - but I do try, if it's night time and people are sleeping..
