Friendship is the most beautiful relation in this world, and getting an honest and loyal friend is a blessing.
But, how can we find a good friend? I mean what are the qualities of a good friend.
Ever since we were growing up, we were told that swearing is bad. Swearing is still seen as a rude and inappropriate thing nowadays, and we are taught to be careful to not swear, especially not in public.
While swearing may have once been considered an unsavory habit, research has found there are some benefits to using more colorful language. Not only does cursing come with some mental and physical health perks, but it also could positively affect how you converse with others. In other words, it’s pretty darn good for your overall well-being.
According to a multilevel study done by a collaborative team from the Maastricht University in the Netherlands, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as well as Stanford and the University of Cambridge, potty-mouthed people tend to have lower deception levels and higher integrity at a personal as well as a societal level!
The results of the study indicate that people who let loose with a string of obscenities tend to let off steam this way and are less likely to harm themselves or others when under pressure. They swear more to de-stress and this makes them more honest and dependable than a person who doesn’t. Since swearing is basically an honest representation of one’s feelings, people who swear more are likely, to be honest, so make better friends.
Those who swear a lot tend to be expressive and more fluent in their language skills, curse words aside.
“People who use taboo words understand their general expressive content as well as nuanced distinctions that must be drawn to use slurs appropriately,” Jay and Janschewitz’s student states. “The ability to make nuanced distinction indicates the presence of more rather than less linguistic knowledge.”
Another study showed that people who swear more were more honest and raw in their opinion. People who swear a lot will always tell you what’s on their mind. And do not believe in hiding or diluting things just to suit others’ preference. They believe in honesty and they use the words that exactly show that. They also believe in expressing their views confidently in whichever way possible, and a lot of time, through slangs.
These people are more genuine and like to be real. They are often misjudged for this, but that doesn’t stop them from being who they are.
So the next time you meet a friend who swears a lot, be sure that their criticism is purely honest in nature and they do not intend on hurting you.
