Abstract

Student’s perception of attractiveness of their teacher’s appearance does not only come from the external performances such as the face or cloth, which are visible to visual senses, but also from the voice heard by the learners, which will bring out the particular perception on how they see their teacher. This current study investigated whether the influence of the pitch of the teacher's voice influenced the perception of student’s interpersonal attractiveness towards their teacher. This research used quota sampling technique and was designed by manipulating the pitch of the male and female voices to rank their attractiveness from the participant. The result from this study was indicated that teacher’s voice pitches were related to their interpersonal attractiveness.
