Limelight Shunned

What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?

I’d think I’d prefer to listen to myself speaking rather than watching myself. Funny since I like making videos and reviews on video but I usually focus on the camera just on the item – be it food, drink or something like a starship model or an electronic gadget – and let only my voice do the talking. It’s not needed for me to be on the screen as the review is on an object. So yeah I prefer listening to my voice and if it is a video as well, I won’t be on screen but you will hear my voice.

It’s just my view of things; I’m not very happy with my voice. I find it to get high pitched too much and it is really evident on recordings or on video. Although at times I can find myself with a nice deeper voice. But mostly I don’t really like my voice on recordings. Same goes for my image, I am not happy with the way I look and hence do not want to see myself or show myself on film or video and hence I stand behind the camera for the most part and prefer to do the filming or shooting the pics. Make sense?
