Skip to comments.Video Proof, Women Use More Words
Posted on 02/15/2010 3:59:22 PM PST by Tom Hawks
This video reminds me of a joke I heard about a husband who was looking through the paper when he came upon a study that said women use more words than men?
Well there was a married man who read in a magazine that, "Men use about 7000 words per day, but women use 20,000". Excited to prove to his wife that he had been right all along when he accused her of talking too much, he showed her the study results. The wife thought for a while, then finally she said to her husband,
"It's because we have to repeat everything we say."
The husband looked at her quizzically and replied,
Now isn't that just like a typical response a man gives his wife? I must admit that I do that quite often to my wife. Well we have all heard of the studies that concluded women us more words per day then men. Yea, yea, I know about the study that was done between 1998 and 2004 by the "British National Corpus" that concluded men and women speak about the same amount of words in a day. My only problem with their study is that they did it on College students. Show me a college student that doesn't talk a lot, regardless of gender. Oh, here a link to the study I mentioned that I disagree with. You need to register and sign over your freedom if you want to read the study, I did and I read the study so I know why I disagree with it. (just kidding about the loss of your freedom, but you do need to register if you want to read the study)
Anyway, my point isn't to debate the accuracy of the BNC's study so much as I wanted to bring to the table the evidence I found that ends all debate upon which gender uses more words. This study proves that women not only use more words than men do, but that they were also born using more words than men. Unfortunately for men however, it also proves that fathers train their daughters from an early age to accept the fact that us men will shine you ladies on regardless of what you say.
Check out this video and see if you agree with me, that women are born using more words than men.
"Conclusive Evidence, Women Use More Words Than Men"
My wife uses at least twice the number of words per day as I do.
The first time, she’s two rooms away, facing away from the door, mumbling into a corner, while I’m in the kitchen with the dishwasher running.
Then she’s upset when I ask her to repeat herself.
The husband looked at her quizzically and replied,
Absolutely true ..But
The reason this happens (at least with my wife) is that she will change the subject of the conversation at the drop of a hat.
Suddenly she will be talking about something that is totally unrelated to what we were talking about in her last breath.
So I say What? because I am still thinking about the last subject. I am totally at a loss as to what she is talking about.
My wife talks herself into a frenzy when it comes to problems. Before I even have a chance to give my opinion she has convinced herself that she has come up with a solution to a problem that never existed but she talked herself into thinking their was. Especially when it comes to the relationships of her friends.

My wife has no such problem. She finds that waiting for the commercial to end and when play commences is the perfect time to make whatever point she wants to make.
Woman #2: Oh! You got a haircut! That’s so cute!
Woman #1: Do you think so? I wasn’t sure when she gave me the mirror. I mean, you don’t think it’s too fluffy looking?
Woman #2: Oh God no! No, it’s perfect. I’d love to get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too wide. I’m pretty much stuck with this stuff I think.
Woman #1: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you could easily get one of those layer cuts - that would look so cute I think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent my long neck.
Woman #2: Oh - that’s funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.
Woman #1: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms - see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to fit me so much easier.
Man #2: Haircut?
Man #1: Yeah.
Or, the question will be phrased along the lines of (from the next room), “Honey, would you move that? It’s downstairs and belongs there.”
LOL! I feel you brother! My beloved can be on the second floor, in a room with the door closed and expect me to hear what she is saying while Im standing on the patio outside the back door of the house...craziness I tell you!
My wife waits after the end of the conversation until I am two rooms away, and then starts talking again. So, I have to backtrack and ask her to repeat it. She says I could avoid this problem if I would just wait until she’s done talking.
I’m wondering how long I should wait to be sure she doesn’t have something else to say.
Obviously, Obama was not included in this survey.
