Vocal tonality: speak groot!

Was getting a bit tired of recent shit posts; I disappear for a short while and you gheys resort to shit posting.

Smh.

Reposting a useful outer game post on vocal tonality; too many people talk about rapport breaking tonality/dominant tonality without actually showing what it looks like.

So, I said fuck it and found a good post that does.

I repeat, this is NOT my post, it’s an oldie from r seduction before it became ghey.

Got a couple of outer game posts in my drafts, but been a bit busy recently. Some raging, bald headed spartan dude is mounting an attack against Mount Olympus, looks remarkably similar to this.

(N.B. I know some of you have some posts in your drafts too. If you can, prioritise posts focusing on outer game. IE shit the reader can literally walk out and implement the next time they are out. Nobody wants another “See! Women are hypergamous, women bad!” or another lame generic platitude post. Would be immensely appreciated xoxo)

Anyway, without further adieu:

So I was studying abroad on Mount Olympus and took "How to Speak Groot" as an elective. This course has changed my life when interacting with people (i.e. women), and I want to share a bit of what I learned!

Read each of these sentences aloud:

I am groot.

I am groot?

I AM groot.

I... am groot.

I. Am. Groot?

I... am... groot...

I am groot!!!

Even though each of these sentences is exactly the same, what makes them stand apart is in the tone and inflection of your voice when you speak. The emphasis on one word vs another. The slight lift in voice in the end that denotes a question vs the strong pronunciation that denotes a statement. The words are just words. How you say them changes everything.

This is why I tell people what you say is never as important as HOW you say it.

I'll give you another example. We're all familiar with Joey's (FRIENDS) famous pick up line:

"How you doin?"

The reason it makes people giddy is the delivery. It's the inflection on "you" and the subtle drop with the "doin" that grabs you.

It's that way he makes "How you doin?" sound like "You are beautiful. You are sexy. You are fascinating. I WANT YOU."

It's all in the delivery.

How this affects your interaction with women (and why confidence is so important), is because when you learn how to adjust the way you say things, you can say anything, but convey a different meaning the way you say it.

You can say "Good Morning" in a way that makes her hear "Damn! You're sexy as fuck!"

You can say "Let's go get a drink." and what she hears is "I want to take your panties off with my teeth!"

And the best part: When you learn to play with your delivery, she will "hear" what she wants to hear! And while this can often be a doubled-edged sword, if she's attracted to you, it will ALWAYS work out in your favor.

Now, here's how you can make this work for you:

Read the following sentences silently.

I think you're beautiful.

I think you're intelligent.

Wow, you're really funny.

I think you're sexy.

I want to fuck you.

You want me!

Want to have sex?

Now read each sentence again, but this time say "I am groot". Say it in a way that tries to convey the meaning of the sentence.

You'll notice the subtle changes in diction and inflection, not only as you speak them, but as you hear them as well.

Now do it all again, but this time... smile while you speak.

This... this right here... this is Flirting 101. It's how to say or do one thing, but convey a completely different meaning.

It's the subtle difference in voice tone and body language that gives what ever comes out of your mouth "context".

And that subtlety makes all the difference in the world. It's the key to flirting. It's the reason I always suggest making an actual phone call vs text msgs. It's the reason what you say is never as important as HOW you say it.

Now go find a mirror and practice.

My greatest flaw: talking in monotone and the tendency to mumble. Trash intonation can absolutely nuke interest you otherwise had while silent.

I've noticed "turning on" feelings inside you while talking goes a long way to communicate a different vibe, helping in voice and partially correcting the aforementioned flaw.

Think of how you can notice when someone is supressing laughter or anger, even if they are saying nothing and completely still. Context aside, in speaking there's a clear distinction in quietly saying "pick up the apple" when you're caring or angry, for example.

In this sense, I've noticed great improvements in flirting while allowing myself to feel horny in front of girls, obvious as it is to point out. Not only it drives you to escalate, countering robotic awkward behavior, it communicates interest from you non-verbally - had otherwise neutral girls change behavior with me then.

[–]Thorusss 32 points33 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I have shifted to mostly working with intonation, and it is much more relaxing and impactful.

You don't have to find the perfect words, just find the right tone/mood. The search space for the later is a lot smaller, so mentally relaxing.

And talking relaxed is pleasant for yourself and gives and natural deep resonance.

Good post. thanks for reposting it.

[–]gucciwillis 15 points16 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I find that people are really drawn to you when you have a calm and deep but soft tone of voice, feels very intimate even with someone you're not trying to be sexual with

[–]rekdt 8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Do you have any examples you could share or how you are working with it.

[–]Amund_Jaeger 22 points23 points  (8 children) | Copy Link

A deep growling voice with some force and volume behind it is fucking sexy and everybody loves it. I think it’s perhaps the most powerful tool in social settings, along with body language. A good projective voice with the right tonality and confident delivery will make everybody’s ears perk up and panties WILL get moist.

I consider my voice one of my greatest attributes, and it’s what women complement me the most on. They love hearing the rumbling and compare it to their own little squeaks.

It is definitely worth putting some work into getting your voice straightened out, you can definitely improve it. To get mine right, I like to hum similar to McConaughey is The Wolf of Wallstreet, and focus on getting the resonance right so you feel the vibrations deep in your chest. Getting your posture correct and relaxing the neck and vocal chords also helps with getting your growl on. However, be careful trying to “fake” a deep voice as it sounds very stupid. It takes some practice.

Btw I lol’d hard at your intro.

-Cheers

[–]Tumamafat 3 points4 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

I'm interested in a more detailed explanation of your exercise.

[–]whhoa 7 points8 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Im not him, but you can just make the sounds "aaaaa" "ooooo" or "uuuuu" and focus on vibrating deeper and deeper - you do this mainly with your tongue, but also your throat and mouth/lips. Its like throat singing. Eventually you "stretch" your vocal cords enough, and learn better posture, and your voice becomes much deeper.

I used to keep saying "aaaa" deeper and deeper till I lost my voice! This is partly because of how enjoyable it is - its like meditation in a way. You will be suprised how low your voice can go once you get better too.

[–]purple_catholic 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

I read somewhere that these vocal exercises and attempts at deeper voice can actually hurt your vocal chords. Is that true?

[–]whhoa 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yes you can do damage if you really overdo it constantly and never let your vocal cords recover. If you become sore or lose your voice, you need to respect that. I doubt its a problem though for 99% of us

[–]Amund_Jaeger 3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Ok so first you want to make sure you breathe deep with the stomach. Then, hum during exhale as long as you can, and try to make the voice as deep as possible. Go from the bottom of the belly and out the mouth. It feels great and is relaxing, I love humming.

Also, stretching out your neck by laying on your back on the couch or bed and let the head hang back will stretch out the chords and deepen the voice.

Thing is, if you want a consistent deep voice, you need to keep doing it and practicing. Sure, you will get instant results, but it will wear off. I do have a natural deep voice, but I do this daily and my voice is extra extra deep.

BONUS TIP: If you want to go full Tibetan monk retard low, look up throat song. I figured out how to do it myself, but I’ve never met anybody else who knows how to do it. You do this for 5-10 minutes you sound like the King of the Jungle.

Bro you are probably making a fool of yourself and the young fatties are simply humoring you

[–]1SeasonedRP 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is a great post. The best way to learn to do this is to observe someone who is good at it. If you are good at it, you can escalate without coming across as thirsty. Among many other uses.

[–]DanielFromCucked 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Literally the other night at karaoke I used the ol How you doin and she immediately knew what was up and loved it. Ended up taking her home.

[–]Endorsed ContributorForeverKarlMalone 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Beautiful post, one of the best yet should be pinned.

Who cares where it's from. Only thing that matters is quality content that delivers actual results.

Appreciate your bringing this advanced post to everyone's attention

[–]StirFryAndBurgers 18 points19 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Are you retarded?

ARE you retarded?

Are you RETARDED?!!!

Are YOOOU retarded?

AARE YOU RETARDED!!!!!!

Answer: Yes

[–]Spero73 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Great post, thank you. My favorite example of emphasization is the phrase, "I didn't kill that dog."

"I didn't kill that dog."

"I didn't kill that dog."

"I didn't kill that dog."

"I didn't kill that dog."

"I didn't kill that dog."

Same sentence, completely different meanings with each word emphasized on its own. I haven't thought to use this in flirting as a means to imply. Thanks. Good post.

[–]neverendingplush 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Funny, I was just thinking about this. I work with a lot of younger guys, and noticed, that a lot of them just have these weird squirrly borderline autistic voices. They talk exceptionally fast, or they just pronounce things in ways that seem rather odd idk. I definitely think maybe men dont realize, how important their voice and tone of speech is. I'm not saying you have to sounds like Vin Diesel or Denzel, but it wouldn't hurt to talk in such a way that doesn't sound like you wouldn't mind taking it in the ass. I know im not being constructive, it just seems so widespread.

[–]TheBunk_TB 10 points11 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

A bunch of what you said is pretty spot on.

I have done a few exercises (via Jason Capital’s book) that mirror your sentiments.

(I know that Capital is maligned in certain circles but some of his stuff is good)

It helps to communicate well and get your point across

[–]Endorsed ContributorProtocol_Apollo[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Jason capital

Now that’s a name i haven’t heard in a while.

I remember buying his high status book. Which one did you get?

[–]j-mac-rock 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

whats his book about and what is it called

[–]TheBunk_TB 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Jason Capital

Higher Status

[–]LawItUp77 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

The I am groot part made me chuckle but this is actually a pretty good way to see how tone really affects things

[–]Balderdash79 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Had a lisp as a kid.

Went to speech therapy, lost the lisp.

Since then I've always paid attention to tonality.

If any of you guys have a squeaky voice or talk too fast, there is an exercise you can do to change it.

Grab a book. Something like a Louis L'Amour western. Macho.

Every night before you go to sleep, read aloud one chapter of the book.

Make sure you say each word slowly and forcefully, and talk in a stupid-low voice. Fake it till you make it.

By the time you finish the book you will speak more slowly and have a deeper voice.

Edit:

Everyone who downvoted this is a fat sperg.

[–]SoulRedemption 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Short and concise! This is great

Any chance of tonality and delivery for other interactions (i.e. work place)

Holding someone accountable without offense

Requesting what needs to be done in an assertive manner

Confidence display

Would really help even if an article or a different post

[–]thingsjusthappened -5 points-4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Learn to speak in USD and you won't need to speak with your mouth ever again.

[–]blackhotchilipepper 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Thanks for reposting. We should repost more classics instead of fake and ghey field reports

[–]Endorsed ContributorProtocol_Apollo[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Nah field reports are important.

Only reason red pill exists is because guys went out there and applied lame blue pill shit, reported it didn’t work and reported what worked instead to each other.

They compared notes with each other, went out and reported back to confirm each other’s findings.

There is no red pill without implementing and reporting.

Both blue and red pill make sense in theory, but only one actually works in the field.

[–]Sospian 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I struggle big time with tonality. "Wow, you're really funny" almost always comes out sounding sarcastic. For me I can't seem to express unless my body is completely loose. If I'm not actively keeping my body & mind warmed up then I go into an internalised state in which I struggle to communicate.

I'm more on the aspie side which means I've had to learn social interactions manually.

[–]timetostartwinning 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

this post is a hall of famer

[–]bdhsnsnsnhxjsj -4 points-3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

How do you complain about shitposts while simultaneously posting a shit post?

[–]2319Skew 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

What's shit about it? He's referencing how you can say the same thing numerous ways and convey differently each time.

Guys struggle with that.

Some aren't even aware they struggle with that.

If anything, I'd wish he would have gone into more detail around body language as well.

Maintain eye contact, smile, laugh to deflect, stand tall, chest out, core engaged, etc.

Improving this helps reduce stupid shit tests.

So, what would you have posted to bring more value then OP and why not post it?

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
