Your voice can tell if you are likely to stray on your spouse!

TORONTO: Beware! According to a new study, your voice could give you away if you are likely to cheat on your spouse or partner! Women believe the lower a man's voice, the more likely he's going to cheat, just as men think that a high pitched woman tends to be unfaithful. 

The Study lead Jillian O'Connor, graduate student in psychology at McMaster University, Canada, said :
'We found that men & women will use voice pitch as a warning sign of future betrayal. So the more attractive the voice - a higher pitch for women & lower pitch for men - the more likely the chances he or she will cheat,' reports the journal Evolutionary Psychology.

'Infidelity is costly with the emotional impact, financial costs & potential loss of the family unit,' Connor says, according to a McMaster's statement. 'But this suggests that through the evolutionary process, we 've learned ways to avoid partners who may be unfaithful as a protection mechanism,' adds Connor.

Study participants were asked to listen to two versions of recorded clips from a male voice & a female voice, which were electronically manipulated to be both higher & lower in pitch. They were then asked which one, from each pair, was more likely to cheat sexually on their romantic partner. 'The reason voice pitch influences perceptions of cheating is likely due to the relationship between pitch, hormones & infidelity,' explains David Feinberg, assistant professor in psychology, neuroscience & study advisor.

'Men with higher testosterone levels have lower pitched voices, & women with higher estrogen levels 've higher pitched voices. High levels of these hormones are associated with adulterous behaviour & our findings indicate individuals are somewhat aware of the link & may use this in their search for a romantic partner,' Feinberg concludes.
