If you’re looking how to test your intelligence, knowing really bad words can also lead to the indication that you have a better vocabulary than those who don’t know as many bad words. As well, cursing can be linked to having a higher IQ.
Also, swearing improves your pain tolerance, which is why we all love to scream profanity when we’re injured. Researchers say that cursing can have the same effect on those in pain as a shot of morphine can have–which, is pretty wild.
So, the next time someone tells you to “watch your mouth,” or “language,” be sure to inform them that you’re only looking to better your own life and soul. Also, take pride in the fact that you’re probably happier than they are.
