Same, though I also find hard to listen to people sometimes, and it's not them, it's me. It sometimes gets awkward enough that I have to start nodding even though I don't understand where the conversation is going. I just prefer quiet places.

I'm fairly quiet. People sometimes don't hear me when I speak, and I don't like being in loud or crowded places because I hate having to raise my voice; I'm the type that'll often just say "never mind" and shrug rather than having to up my volume and repeat myself. I don't think I'm super quiet or anything, and my voice is relatively deep, so it probably carries a bit better than it would otherwise, but I speak more quietly than many people do, even if it's by a small margin.

I also have the problem of occasionally being too loud. It doesn't happen often - usually only when I'm talking about something interesting with someone else who's enjoying the conversation. When I get some momentum in my speech, it tends to keep rolling until I suddenly notice that I'm throwing my voice to distances that I'd normally be extremely uncomfortable with, and jump back to being quiet. I also have a pretty loud laugh. My roommate has told me that its kind of disconcerting to hear the occasional laugh coming from my room, because I'm otherwise quite silent, and when I laugh, it can be heard through the entire apartment.

I've been told my voice is low and quiet. I'm reserved in real life, hate loud people and groups of teenagers at the mall.

I'm considered to be extremely loud and yet people still find me hard to understand because i speak oddly and rather fast...

Yes I have a quiet deep voice and yes it's bothersome, but you know you just have to learn to deal with it cause that's just the way it is.

I vary depending on the days. Sometimes I'm loud enough so everyone and my patients can hear and understand me. Other days everyone has to ask me what I say twenty times before I get the idea I'm talking too low. Doesn't help that I have a hard time understanding people when they talk sometimes. But what can you do.

Also OP, don't feel you need to apologise to the internet for asking a question. It ain't selfish.

I have a fairly loud voice. If I had a quiet one, at least no one would tell me to quiet down when I'm just talking regularly. Probably just me overreacting, but it makes me kind of mad/upset because I'm just talking like I regularly do and being myself and they're telling me to be quieter.

I mostly have a quiet voice. There was a point in my childhood when a teacher would bend down and put their ear to my face to find out if I was really talking. I can have loud moments though. Of course at home family wished I'd be quiet and shut up! My voice range isn't that great though it was enough to get me in the school choirs. If I talk a lot for well over an hour my voice starts to strain. Any time I went on holiday camp as a teen I'd come back home hoarse until I learnt to shut up before my voice's breaking point. I suppose it didn't help that my mother didn't used to shout at us when she was mad. When she was angry her voice grew lower and quieter. A friend of mine told me that was much scarier than being shouted at. I think I've inherited that habit.

Sometimes I wish a had a quiet voice. Im pretty loud and sometimes I dont realize how loud I am. It's a bit embarrassing and I'd rather have a quieter voice than I have now. I know a few people that have a quiet voice. They can't even yell, it's really strange to me, lol.

My voice can be both loud and quiet. My main problem is hearing what other people are saying.
