Personal catchphrases, more or less type or enneagram related (?):
overuse of qualifiers: "some", "this could mean", "this seems to point to", "a tendency to", "to a certain degree","there seems to be a certain correlation between x and y" (general aversion towards simple black and white statements)
"Yeah, but you are overlooking some strong structural differences here"
"I know it's a bit of a cliché/I know it's not very original to say, but..."
"It's nothing special/this book is not world literature/this movie is not exactly Bergman, but.."
"Either way is fine, whatever works for you"
Suddenly talking about self as "one" or the rhetorical "you" or even "that girl" when psychoanalizing own feelings and interaction with others (as in "when x happens, one thinks y" instead of "I think y")
"Yeah, right!" (putting on cynical look and wondering if I'm slowly turning into my mother who has that exact same look and tone of voice down to an art)
Strategically unwise preemtive excuses: "Hello. Sorry, I know I'm late/should have called earlier/send you the text, but..."
"Where was I? Oh yeah, right!" *tries to pick up trail of thought*
"Oh, by the way, that reminds me of...>insert seemingly unrelated story<"
"I see your point, but..."
"I still don't understand what your getting at. Maybe it's me. Explain again, as if you were talking to a six year old"
(to eight armed ex bf): "Get out of my bubble!"
"It's got nothing to do with you, I just need some time to myself"
"Meh, I don't feel like doing x right now"
and let's not forget:
"Everything tastes better with paprika/garlic!"
