The vocabulary of a loser
Even a couple of words that you use casually, in passing, can tell a lot about you. The choice of this word instead of its synonym, not only reflects the level of proficiency in their native language and about the breadth of your vocabulary, but also about your emotional state, habits, complexes and many more.
There are a number of words and phrases, the utterance of which provides you with a head — you put yourself in a stigma of a bit of a sissy and a loser.
You can and want, and as a result, you do. Or you can, but don’t want (don’t want), and do not. It’s simple, man, don’t these subjunctive.
What the heck is a «could»? Using in his speech this design you painted in his own insecurity, lack of understanding of what you really can and want to.
2. «It won’t work»
As well as synonymous — «fail», «fail», etc.
Your position is «for life» position is defeatist. You refuse to fight even before they started to do something, you are disappointed in the company, prior to its opening, you do not believe in success what you can only dream… Sucks to be you, dude.
«It’s usually like this: …», «of course I do it this way.» — these words belong to the person not interested in innovation, and any development in General. «It’s usually that, and it suits him.
4. «I suspect»
As a rule, «I suspect» in our language is equivalent to «I believe». Or rather, almost equivalent. In contrast to the «I think/feel/know/think/believe», «suspect» carries a negative expression, and exclude the shade, which is responsible for the accuracy.
Some things really are impossible. For example, to fly to the sun using wings made out of planks and feathers… well, you know.
But one who too often puts the «impossibility» of promising events of his own life again, trying on the mask of a defeatist. And, in addition, resign from the honorable duty anti-interference.
6. «I’m concerned»
And there is nothing to explain. Worry can and should, but, dude, don’t overdo it, for God’s sake.
7. «I don’t quite understand…»
Don’t understand — ask. Confused — ask for explanations. Not sure I understand correctly — asked.
Keep it simple.
8. «I have to»
Very often this construction is used in order to justify its own indecision, laziness and fear.
«I want to work as a designer, but first I have to finish my Institute of construction and law».
«I want to move to another town, but first I have to find a normal job here.»
9. «It’s hard»
Even if you do have difficulties in choosing a particular option, others do not have to know about. Just get the damn choice!
10. «Most likely»
«This missile will likely not explode at startup and will not destroy all life on the half of the globe».
What do you mean by «likely»? You don’t know what they are talking about? Or know, but not good enough? If you’re not confident in their knowledge, why? Because your parents don’t quite love you, or because you do not possess enough information?
All of these issues by lightning rushing in the head of your companion when you drink in his speech, «most likely».
