It's just some sort of cognitive dissonance ('do I sound like THAT?'). When people suddenly find out that some quality of them is not how they perceived it themselves, they will distance themselves from it. The same happens when you mirror someone's mirror image- so that they can see how other people see them. The difference is smaller, but enough to freak some people out. (this trick can be done with crossed mirrors).

I guess I am alone. I love the sound of my own voice. I have taken voice & diction classes as well as public speaking just for the fun of it. My former boss said I have the most beautiful phone voice she has ever heard, and my co-workers tease me that on the phone I sound like the next thing I am going to say is “I need your credit card number if you want to stay on the line for 10 more minutes.” Yes, I take that as a compliment. I’m really very happy with how I sound. As a matter of fact, in one of the classes i read a poem about phone sex ... the teacher sent us out for a cigarette break afterward. That said – I have spoken to RainHa over the Xbox; she can tell you if I am full of it.

But I'm a trained singer and so am probably used to hearing my voice recorded more often than most.
