    Default "Obviously"

    What's up with this phenomenon? I can think of a few reasons.

    1. Instinctual reaction (could depend on 2)
    2. Culturally imbibed (could be short term)
    3. True (over)confidence
    4. Dictionary gone M.I.A. (could depend on 3)

    I can't believe more people aren't upset about this phenomenon!

    it's a bad habit for me, brought on by self-consciousness about another bad habit (constantly stating the obvious) :P

    I mean, obviously.

    What phenomenon? Obviously...what?

    It doesn't help that it's "obvious" to another SP above. I wanted to blame Intuition.

    Usually confidence, overconfidence, and/or bias. Things are 'obvious' when we think that others are looking at the same set of facts that we are, that our set of facts is the truth of a situation. Our knowledge comes from a variety of sources and, mostly, only from things that we've perceived.

    The set of facts we hold could well be 'close enough' to the entire truth, if we're an expert on a subject, for instance--but it could very well not be, too.

    This is why I usually prefer to explain myself--the set of facts and the reasoning that I'm using--than to simply state my opinion.

    5. The other phenomenon of habitually stating the obvious.

    Falls into #s 1-3. This isn't about the obvious.

    Obvious is obvious.

    (Sorry, had to do it). My best friend uses that word all the time and I don't think she realises how dismissive it sounds. I don't mind if people use it in a sentence, but if it's just "OBVIOUSLY!"... that really bothers me.
