Profanity is a sign of intelligence
New research shows that people who curse a lot, have a larger vocabulary and higher intelligence than people who do not swear.

If you use a language full of profanity, then you are the one who has the last laugh.

Because new American research actually shows that a vast and colorful arsenal of profanity is a sign of intelligence, comprehension and a well-developed vocabulary. Exactly the opposite of what your mother probably told you.

The two researchers behind the study, psychologist Kristin L. Jay at the Marist College, and Timothy B. Jay at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, have studied 60 people with various backgrounds, and the conclusion is clear:
People who use a lot of profanity and insults, generally have a much larger and more developed vocabulary, which is also a sign of high intelligence.

The exception, however, is sexually derogatory language about fellow human beings - especially women. This, the researchers say, is not a sign of genius, but rather the opposite.

Not only had the cursing test persons a more developed language, they were also far better to vary the language depending on who they talked to, and they showed a greater understanding of linguistic interaction with the environment.

So the more you swear, the smarter you are, and you are also much better to talk to all kinds of people.

Thus, the next time someone tells you not to swear that much, you can enjoy your superior intelligence.

The study was published by the magazine Science Illustrated.
