Why do I hate the sound of my voice on recording?
Bhatt explained that the dislike of the sound of our own voices is physiological and psychological.

When you’re speaking, you hear some of the sounds the same way. Your voice comes out of your mouth, travels round to your ear, and down your ear canal. But there is another way for the sound of your own voice to reach the cochlea and for you to hear it: through the bones in your head.
