The world is beautiful because it is varied but, simplifying a lot, we could venture to simplify identifying two types of people: who says the bad words and who, instead, prefers a more diplomatic approach. Despite using obscene words is not well seen by our society, there seems to be some positive aspect in this approach.
According to a study conducted by the universities of Stanford Cambridge, Maastricht and Hong Kong, people who say many bad words could be more honest as they would apply less mental filters to the speech.
The study took place in two different phases: during the first phase, 276 people participated in an interview, indicating which swear words they use on a daily basis and how often. The researchers then tested their honesty by submitting them to a series of tests.
During the second phase of the research, the researchers analyzed over 70 thousand Facebook profiles looking for linguistic indicators of deception, such as the use of the third person and the presence of negative words. Combining the results obtained we have seen how there is a strong relationship between imprecations and honesty: those who say more bad words tend to be more sincere. This kind of language implies that the person applies fewer filters to his social discourse, using fewer masks. In short, we could really say: absolute imprecators!
