    Default Type and speach

    Are there certain phrases/words some types are more likely to use/use more commonly?

    I was thinking about the rap group A Tribe Called Quest, who often refer to themselves as "The abstract poets", and generally toss the word"abstract" around a lot. They seem pretty NF to me, but I'm not sure why.

    "Because its normal" seems like an SJ thing to say... any other ideas?

    Is this even a real thing, or is it really just stereotyping?

    Anyway, I think that F's are more likely to use the words "feel," "personally," or "like." I don't know about T's, though...

    It could really be more stereotyping than anything else, but I think it might be more worthwhile to look at how words tend to be used, as well as the number of them. For instance, find out whether some types are more prone to use declarative or interrogative forms, etc.

    It's an inherent part of my thought process...hmm, theoretically, you have a point.

    Hypothetically, too. Though with me, these two are often implied more than said. It's (I think) the major flaw in my communication skills, that I imply too much, assuming the other person will pick up on it without me saying it explicitly, and assuming things that are obvious to me are obvious to everyone, too much so to merit mentioning. I feel like if I point everything out stage by stage, I'm patronizing the other person and treating them as though they're stupid, so I tend to err on the side of assumption too often sometimes. Then, though I'm actually treating them as equals by not wanting to be condescending, what it gets taken as is often me 'talking over people's heads' to deliberately bamboozle them or make them feel stupid. I can't win!!

    Actually, I say 'supposedly' quite a bit, and 'ostensibly'. In speech, though I don't think I've used them that much on here.

    You mean --> OMG!!

    LOL.

    Yeah, that's another one - LOL.

    And WTF?

    I say 'hahahhaaha' a lot in my posts, just in case you miss that yes, I am really laughing. Hahhaha -- like now.

    There are a couple achille's heels words I say too often.

    If you work in a field where public speaking or else giving presentations is your bread and butter, you learn REALLY QUICK what your 'crutch words' are. Everyone has them. I learned especially well what mine were/are IRL as my bosses were scary, mercilesss NT's/SJ's. I have since trained myself through 'shock therapy' not to use them.
