I grew up with two older sisters who are much older than I am. When I was 6-years-old, my eldest sister was already 16-years-old, which means, there was always some foul language going on around the house. I quickly picked up some not-so-good words when I was super young, so much so that my mom frequently put soap in my mouth (unsure as to what her point was, I still say fuck like it’s going out of style). While many people believe swearing and using cuss-words is inappropriate and in bad taste, it turns out that there are some benefits in having a potty mouth. According to science and some studies, there’s a bunch of reasons that swearing is good for you. Researchers decided that those who swear regularly are more happy, healthy, intelligent, and (of course) honest. One study indicates that during an argument (in any setting), using profanity can lead to higher effectiveness and persuasion. If you’re trying to be seen as passionate and firm in a stance, using swear words can help your agenda.

By swearing, we not only communicate the meaning of a sentence but also our emotional response to the meaning… our emotional reaction to something. It also allows us to express anger, disgust, or pain, or indicate to someone that they need to back off, without having to resort to physical violence.

Along with this, studies show that those who curse have higher levels of integrity and, in turn, can be much more honest people. According to research, those who use profanity tend to lie less, as tested on a lie detector exam. In terms of your mood, researchers also say that letting out a few bad words every now and again can actually release endorphins, like exercising, and can overall improve your mood. There’s nothing like letting out a few F-bombs when you’re having a bad day, right?

If you’re looking how to test your intelligence, knowing 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 a sign of having a higher IQ. In addition, 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 wild. Therefore, 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.
