    Words, I mean, they're like, ya know, so useless.

    No, I mean the rising intonation at the end of a sentence, like it's a question. I do it a bit if I'm around others that do it, but I've met some people that honestly do it on every sentence - that gets a bit tired, quickly. A degree of uncertainty is integral to Kiwi (and to a lesser extent, Australian) culture, for basically the reasons @JivinJeffJones described. It's meant to be a social leveller.

    From what I've heard, that's pretty true. Probably half the people I know that are in their 20s are living in either Australia or the UK (or have been recently).

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Oh I get it. I guess I've noticed it a bit in Kiwis, but not to a super-annoying degree. Generally I like the accent.

    I think of my "likes" and so on as word whiskers. They can be annoying if over-used, but I think they can be somewhat disarming too.

    Being INFJ and reading a lot and all that, I can get a bit heavy in conversation sometimes, so I think it amuses people when I say things like "I was reading Paul Celan, the surrealist hermetic German poet, and he is just like so awesome. The events of the Holocaust instilled a trauma in him which was like, really bad." That's probably a fairly accurate depiction of how I speak, although it's in no way calculated or deliberate.

    * ...And he was like "I'm okay man!" I don't get how "like" is applicable here. It just doesn't fit, however I think about it. I didn't like this ever since I first heard it.

    As for annoyance - I do. I believe I've an idyllic need for things to make sense (in this case, logical formulation of the sentences) which derives from my high standards for me and for others.

    So what was your implication by that post?
    Your posts provide a lot of interesting details about your self.

    It interests me in light of what another poster told me lately about people visiting the site and why they werent posting anymore.

    I will use "Yeah, no" from time to time; even in my native language thanks to some guy I know. I only use "I mean" when others don't understand what I'm trying to say or I need to expand. Otherwise, I hardly use any of these.

    Why are people not posting any more? And what is the relation to the OP?

    Out of interest!
