Latency (of voice production)

During vocal capability/limitation elicitation, a patient may seem to pause an inappropriate amount of time before complying with a requested vocal task. May be a sign of introversion/vocal inhibition/embarrassment, but much more often may be an indicator of nonorganicity, especially if it accompanies la belle indifference.
