A man's voice is an indicator of his body strength, according to a study.
The study, led by Aaron Sell at the University of California, found that women can accurately assess a man's body strength based on his voice alone, suggesting that the male voice may have evolved as an indicator of fighting ability.
The researchers recorded the voices of more than 200 men from the US, Argentina, Bolivia and Romania, who all repeated a short phrase in their native tongue. Sell's team also put the men through a battery of tests of upper body strength.
After listening to the recordings, university female students could accurately predict the strength of the men, based on a seven-point scale. The voice analysis provided just as much information about a speaker's strength as photographs.
What aspects of voice women link with strength remain unknown. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society.
