Are you a But-er? (Read 1101 times)


Consistently Slow

    <h6>Posted of Facebook by a club member</h6> <h6>BEWARE OF PEOPLE WHO USE THE WORD "BUT" AFTER YOU SAY SOMETHING. MOST LIKELY THEY ARE JEALOUS HYPOCRITICAL EVIL DOERS.
    Webster's II New Riverside University Dictionary: But = often used after a negative doubt.
    Examples: You say: It's a nice day today. They say: But the weatherman said it might rain.
    You say: I am buying a new car. They say: But can you afford it?
    You say: I am going to marry Susan. They say: But are you sure she is the right one.
    You say: I am going to become a vegetarian. They say: But without protein from meat you may get cancer.

    Again as stated yesterday, be brief with your words when talking to people other then a true friend and or a relative who cares about you and loves you.

    My take:But very often shows concern. I am going to jump off the Golden Gate bridge. But, what about the ones you leave behind. A case of the "glass half full".

     

    .PS: How soon will the anus references appear? Smile Yes, I am the but person or anus if you like. Dam,that was quick.

                      Abstract

                      Limited research has examined the effects of using disclaimers on person perception, and none has examined disclaimer effectiveness. Four studies test whether disclaimers effectively ward off negative judgments regarding the specific disclaimed traits. Study 1 finds that using an arrogance disclaimer ("I don't mean to sound arrogant, but . . .") increased judgments of the speaker's arrogance but only when followed by an arrogant comment. Studies 2 and 3 yield similar findings using laziness and selfishness disclaimers. Studies 2, 3, and 4 examine five possible underlying mechanisms regarding why disclaimers can backfire. The most support was obtained for the notion that disclaimers increase an audience's expectations that the speaker will say something consistent with the unwanted trait, which then increases perceptions of that trait in the speaker. We discuss some possible moderating variables as well as some implications of these findings for general impression formation models.
