    People Who Swear May Be More Honest, 2 studies confirm.

    People Who Swear May Be More Honest Than Those With A Less Colorful Vocabulary.

     

    Swearing may be considered impolite and vulgar, but a new two-part study has revealed a more gracious attribute for those with an off-color vocabulary: Honesty. According to the research, people are more likely to swear as a way to express themselves, rather than cause harm to others, and the more an individual swears, the more honest they are likely to be.

    The researchers found that while liars are known to prefer third-person pronouns and negative words in their speech, honest individuals are more likely to use profanity. According to the researchers, that’s because swearing is often used to express one’s feelings, and people who do this more regularly portray themselves in a more honest light, Scientists reported.
    Past research has suggested that swearing may also be a sign of increased intelligence.  More at link.

    I realize some people think that individuals who don’t swear are better people, which to this poster is strange. Swearing or not has no effect on how I judge someone. Never has.

      1. Damn straight, Skippy!

      This is going on my FB page.  Nothing more irritating than some pious individual who wouldn’t say “Shit!!” if they had a mouthful of it.

        3. How do you fit Nixon into that? Public and Private positions?

          4. Mostly likely private. Which proves the point.

      2. Fuckin' A.

      “A” stands for Affirmative, by the way!  For those who don’t know.

      I am not saying that being honest is the same as being right.  But at least people know exactly where I stand on things.

      • *Obligatory disclaimer - when I say "Democratic Party" I mean the DNC - the Clintons and the un-elected people and the consultants and the lobbyists and the corporations who actually run things.  The people who work and vote and are registered as "D" are no more the actual party than Trekkies are Star Trek.   Extra credit - the Democratic Party gets to actually fuck up your life. When you vote for it.
      You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

      9. Now you know why

      I have a damn hard time not swearing in all my posts.  Yes, it’s because I’m more intelligent than most.

      "But the moment eloquence or the language of debate enters, true reasoning becomes impossible. For the purpose of the debater is not to find the truth but to win the argument, and to this end he will often stray as far as possible from the real issues"   "Eloquence and debate are designed, not to decide issues, but to sway people, for this reason they lean heavily on appeals to emotion and prejudice, and make use of neat, clever, and sometimes humorous turns of phrase rather than profound analysis of ideas" "Of all this Confucious was contemptuous" Confucious by H.

        12. Well of course! Isn't it fucking obvious?

        As a formidable potty-mouth I have a few relatives that are CONSTANTLY asking me why am I not more lady-like, why I find it so necessary to fucking swear so fucking much, and asked why a woman with a well-developed vocabulary would have to stoop to such filth. One relative in particular is the phoniest, Bible-thumping Evangelical bitch who cheats on her husband and steals money.  I’ve always known her piety was a mask.

        Last Spring, I was tooling around England with my friend Chris who thoughtfully took a week off his high-powered and boring job to drive me around and sight-see and I was hurling expletives like a champ. I suddenly felt really self-conscious about it and apologized as my rather proper upper-crust mate was not so inclined and he stopped me in my tracks; “Please don’t ever apologize or change a thing. Zilla, I always take your colorful way of speaking as an absolute sign of your sincerity and lack of pretense”.

        So my phony Aunt can shove it up her too-tightly wound ass.

      Oh sweety, no just no, when I or those of us here talk about the ultra rich - it is NOT you! Not you by a longshot, oh my God did you think...no way you actually thought we meant you? Lord, this country is full of rich stupid people and you seem to be one of the worst. No sweety, you are just a low paid pawn to those ultra rich we talk about. They are wrecking the world, you are an enabler and I understand not being able to sleep at night. I wouldn't either, selling out our future. You have kids right?

        18. Thanks! Interesting. I've always thought that expressing anger at something..

        …is more healthy than quietly holding all that frustration inside I’ll live to be an old, old man.

            34. Are you saying my father smelt of elderberries?

            That guy is very special to me.  He (and the rest of his troupe) informed my tender 10 year old brain’s sense of humor lobe and continues to influence me on a daily basis.

      31. Most of us have a professional life to safeguard.

      When I’m conscious of how what I’m saying will affect the organization(s) I represent, I find that I’m using the most formal and careful language I can, at the expense of being clear and honest.

      When I’m anonymous? Yes actually, I really do believe that shit.
