It's no secret I have a slight mouth of a sailor. For example fuck is the perfect word that applies the exact amount of enthusiasm in certain occations. The strength in cursing is not to overdo it, but to do it to get your goddamn point across. Now we have scientific proof it's not even ignorant. It's actually a sign of more intelligence. You're damn right.
If you let the F-Bombs fly, will it help you feel less stressed?
Swearing is beneficial beyond making your language more colorful. According to psychologists, swearing makes you stronger. Repeating profanities during sports boosts performance, researchers say. More importantly it can be a fantastic way to relieve a mountain of stress off of your shoulders. When we curse forcefully and as loud as humanly possible we trigger a chemical response in the body that is closely linked to aggression, testosterone release, and feelings of competitiveness. This biochemical reaction improves our mental focus and releases stress. Swearing also triggers the natural ‘fight or flight’ stress response. This leads to stress-induced analgesia.
Intelligent people are more likely to swear
Numerous studies conducted in the United States and UK show that there is absolutely zero link between curse words and the intelligence (or lack thereof) of individuals that use them.
Language is a sophisticated toolkit, and swearing is a part of it. The fact is that the size of your vocabulary of swear words is linked with your overall vocabulary, it is a sign of rich emotional language. Actually people with “swear word fluency” typically score higher on IQ tests than those who are not well versed in swear words.
People prefer to work with potty mouths
The office probably isn't the most appropriate place to use curse words. However, research has revealed Millennials actually prefer to work in places that allow obscenities to flow freely. According to a recent study from Wrike, 40 percent of women and 47 percent of men actually prefer to work in environments where cursing is commonplace.
So don’t be afraid to let the F-bombs fly. Especially when you’re feeling stressed out or pressured. Use your colorful vocabulary and be proud of your"Trucker Mouth Syndrome".
