Pennsylvania, October 11, 2017 : Being in a relationship comes with its own set of worries and setbacks. While trust is the foundation of every relationship, it is not that easy to believe everything that your partner says or does. Do you have doubts about their intentions? Do you tumble and toss all night wondering if your partner is cheating on you? Just listen to them speak.

According to a new report published in the journal Evolutionary Psychology, you can detect infidelity by the way your partner sounds.

Researchers from the Penn State University and Albright College recently conducted an interesting experiment to trace and address the relationship between speech and infidelity.

The Research

To decode a relationship between speech and infidelity, the researchers recorded the voices of men and women reading the numbers 1 to 10. This group of people included heterosexual, unmarried individuals who were or had been in committed relationships. Half of the volunteers admitted to have had sex outside their relationships, while the other half claimed to have been loyal throughout.

Assuming that the participants were telling the truth, the volunteers now comprised a group of cheaters and non-cheaters; however, no evident distinction was made between the two groups

Next, another group of volunteers were exposed to these audio recordings who were then asked to rate the likelihood that each speakers had cheated on their partner.

‘These findings expand upon the idea that the human voice may be of value as a cheater detection tool and very thin slices of vocal information are all that is needed to make certain assessments about others’, the researchers said, as quoted by The Daily Mail.

What Can Voice Reveal About Cheating Partners?

While the researchers agree that they cannot specifically point out the features of the voice that leads an individual to make this assessment, they agreed that a lot can be revealed by the pitch of a person.

The experiment also found that extroverts had few silent pauses and greater voice quality, which motivated an individual to make an assessment of infidelity. According to the study, “masculine males tend to display less clarity in their speech and show phonetic patterns indicative of masculinity, which in turn could be associated with infidelity threat.”

So, you have been speaking to your partner and still haven’t found a difference in his tone or pitch. But somehow your faith in your significant other and the relationship is faltering now. And all you can wonder is,
