This short video on sexy voices suggests that women with lower voices have lower estrogen levels. Sadly, too many women sound like voice #2 in the beginning of this video, and this makes sense. Many of them are manly in their demeanor and goals, so it only makes sense that they sound like men, and their estrogen count is as low as that of some of the men out there.
The advertising industry is well aware of the fact that softer, high pitched female voices are so much more attractive and than the manly voices. Thus, it’s not a coincidence that no matter how many manly sounding females are out there on all kind of business shows on CNN, NBC, etc…, the female voices in commercials are usually extremely soft and feminine.
I dare you to find a girl in FiDi, who sounds like this.
One sultry lady I know, whose personality is as distinguished as her curvy physique, came up with a brilliant term that was inspired by her layoff – Fidi Detox. After holding a run-of-the-mill recruiter position at a start-up with highly questionable future, and feeling like a miserable interviewing machine telling me all about how she has been ready to quit ever since she start working there, she was really shocked and upset for about a day or so after being laid off. However, just a two-three days later the difference in her demeanor and energy is incredible. Every day she doesn’t work downtown she looks much happier, and after a week of not having to commute on Bus 1 for over 30 minutes each way, she is glowing from happiness. She no longer has to carry two cellphones or check her e-mail every 2 minutes, as if she had some kind of OCD.
She calls her current life a Fidi Detox. She is committed to not stepping her foot into a financial district for a while, unless absolutely necessary. This should help her rejuvenate her mind and soul, and take a break from finance/law posers, start-up geeks, bland, overpriced lunches, and mediocre looking, overdressed corporate women glued to their cellphones with white headphones and sunglasses.
She recognized that this is a temporary blessing and that soon she will have to return to corporate slavery, which makes present time all the more special.
Today I ran into my former classmate who just moved to San Francisco from Oregon and who now works downtown. I asked him what his initial impressions were from the area and from the general vibe downtown. He told me that “it seemed to be intertwined with the finance people much more than he expected it to be.” I then chuckled and followed up by enlightening him with a much more brief and compelling description of what he was referring too: “it is much more douched out than you expected it to be, isn’t it?” He nodded while laughing hysterically.
