Vocal Underdoer Syndrome

Vocal underdoer syndrome is a term coined by Dr. Anat Keidar and Dr. Robert Bastian to designate an individual whose amount and manner of voice use can be considered inadequate to keep the mechanism in good condition.

  1. Innate introversion/taciturnity;
  2. A life circumstance that permits, invites, or demands very little voice use.
