Why Swearing More May Make You More Honest

(* BUZZ*) (*VO- video of people talking and text on screen of symbols) For those looking for more honesty in their lives, an increase in vocabulary might be necessary And not the kind of vocabulary your grandmother would approve of In a new study which the authors title "Frankly, we do give a damn: The relationship between profanity and honesty" suggests The causes for why we swear and tell the truth are often the same But being honest, or a person's genuine feelings often appear more negative.

Like saying, "No that dress doesn't make you look thin" In a 3 part study of 276 adults participants were first surveyed on their swearing habits.

Then 73,000 Facebook profiles were analyzed for curse words in status updates.

Third they looked at the profanity and integrity indexes across each state.

In case you’re wondering Connecticut has the highest profanity rate but also one of the highest integrity rates.

This rings true to the researchers findings across all 3 studies.

Meaning people curse more when they're truthfully portraying how they feel while people who lie need to use a lot more words to cover up their lie which is dishonest.

So maybe your friend doesn't look thin in that dress but does she have to look fucking (FX bleep) fat?

I'm Angeli Kakade for Buzz60 Now you know pass it on.
