    That's a funny video. I hate the "whatever" sayings like that as well.

    I think it's a technique designed to increase social cohesion; it promotes what I call 'a meeting of the amygdalas': it connects the subconscious, emotionally-centered mamalian brain to another brain, and it happens semi-independently of what else is said.

    I don't think so. In my opinion, you pick up your vocabulary from the people around you.
    Do you use those "expressions," those useless words that I find so annoying when they are use "in a particular way," which is how a lot of people use them.

    • Yea no, I was home.
    • He's like fat.
    • I don't know, I guess I like it, you know?
    • It tastes good, I mean I like it.
    • He's so dead.


    Personally, I find this utterly annoying and I know I missed a few "expressions." I never do that... But then again, I'm not a native speaker, so maybe I'm not a good subject to compare. On the other hand, native language of mine has at least one similar expression that is used quite often, which I don't use either.
    I use "like" and "you know", because
    1) I'm still in college and can therefore get away with it, and
    2) I use them for practical purposes. (I don't consider them to be useless.)

    "You know" is a question that anticipates an affirmation; I'd use a different phrase for that same purpose if another one was equally widespread. I use "like" as a placeholder, and placeholder words are everywhere regardless of language. (e.g. "ya'ni" in Arabic, which is incredibly similar to "I mean"). What are the placeholder words in your native language?

    I use them. But only when I know it will annoy someone.

    Has nothing to do with type. Not everything is about type, you know?

    How come I didn't pick up any?

    Usually people use the "you know?" without expecting an affirmation, at least from what I've noticed.

    We have profane language derived (or being, depends goes both ways) from a different language for those placeholders. Non-profane placeholder is available only for "I mean."

    Well okay then!

    I'm always expecting a nod, or a "yeah, exactly"/"yeah, totally"/"for real" -- or at least some sort of acknowledgment of what I just said. Could be a girl thing -- I think girls expect interjections more than guys do -- and could also be who I hang out with.

    Alas, we can never hang out, I would annoy you.

    I don't actually use the phrases in the OP, but I am quite certain I use 'useless' words/phrases in my speech. I would have picked them up somewhere, and then they've become habit/integrated in how I talk. I'm probably not even aware of some of it.

    If I assume that the subject may know what I'm talking about (say remembers the intro cinematic from a game or a movie), I do ask that question, but I use phrases like "you know what I'm talking about, right?", "you know it?", and one that I use around here and translates oddly, "understand, right?" - it does make sense in my native language. As I see it, it indicates that I DO expect an answer as I'm only speculating and I want to make sure that he gets me - why else would I talk?

    I see how that can happen. Someone I know has expressed his opinion on me "being aware of a lot more than anybody else, which is too much awareness." Also got a comment from someone else saying "be less aware, relax!", and I replied "but I am relaxed."
