    Question Who Swears?

    ok- the whole swearing thread made me start to wonder- what type swears the most? Or does personality type even come into play on this issue?

    i rarely swear, thinking it's far more effective the few times i do it. plus i just have issues with some of it.

    I don't swear much, although I have gotten a little looser recently. But that is probably just my "rebellious" phase, and I'm getting it out of my system... In general, I just do it to surprise people or because there's no other word to better express my point.

    (On INTPc, I had a rep as the goody-two-shoes and shocked everyone on the occasions I did swear for comedic effect...)

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    ESTP are the top swearers for sure. I've yet to meet an ESTP my age who doesn't use a profanity in every sentence.

    The amount of swearing in my communication is a function of how much I want to stress the point.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I swear a lot in real life, probably too much. Mostly in reaction to messing something up or stumbling into things.

    Probably half the words out of my mouth if I'm angry or upset are swearing! I've really never noticed how much I swear in casual speech until I thought about it earlier- I'm really good at completely switching how I speak when talking to older relatives though because I don't want to kill any of them by scaring them into having heart attacks!

    Only a couple of swearwords from me so far.

    And all because of Vista.

    Damn you Vista, damn you to hell! Corrupting my innocence!

    I almost never curse in public, even on the Internet. However, I have been known to get frustrated enough about something, go to my room, curse voraciously, stomp, and perhaps even hit the walls (rarely), all at the same time. Then I come back out looking as though nothing had happened.

    While I'm there, I also occasionally picture people who've made me angry in the mirror, and look at them to tell them what I think of them, but wouldn't have actually said to their faces. Sometimes that involves profanity as well...

    The number of curse words I've actually used in this way is probably too high to count, despite having never used them in public.
