Can We Guess Where You Are From Based On Your Vocabulary?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic Can we guess where you are from based on your vocabulary? You might not have realized it but if you look closely then you would notice that we tend to give many of our personal details when we talk or write something. We could actually trace back to someone by just their writing style. It is a very subtle thing but it does happen. When we write we are using a particular style of writing, a particular set of spellings and many such things. In English speaking countries you might have noticed that people from different parts of the country have a different style of speaking or writing. There are many things which we should consider while we are trying to analyze the writings of a person. It is this thing that helps us in correctly identifying the person. If we don’t analyze the writings carefully then we would come to completely wrong conclusions which would further complicate the problem at hand. There are many criminals of the past who have been caught with the help of linguistic analysis. It is a very underrated topic and I thought that we should discuss it. If you are an American then you would relate to this. There was a famous case known as the Unabomber. The guy was highly intelligent and notorious as well. He used to do what we call it as a perfect crime. The only thing which the officials had was his letters. With the help of those letters they were able to trace back to him. It is a fantastic example of how we leave our identity when we write something. There are many things which we should consider.I hope you liked my short article. If you have any further insights into the topic then feel free to share it down in the comments section below. Play the quiz as well and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. I hope to see you in my next article.

“Certainly the most destructive vice if you like, that a person can have. More than pride, which is supposedly the number one of the cardinal sins – is self pity. Self pity is the worst possible emotion anyone can have. And the most destructive. It is, to slightly paraphrase what Wilde said about hatred, and I think actually hatred’s a subset of self pity and not the other way around – ‘ It destroys everything around it, except itself ‘.

Self pity will destroy relationships, it’ll destroy anything that’s good, it will fulfill all the prophecies it makes and leave only itself. And it’s so simple to imagine that one is hard done by, and that things are unfair, and that one is underappreciated, and that if only one had had a chance at this, only one had had a chance at that, things would have gone better, you would be happier if only this, that one is unlucky. All those things. And some of them may well even be true. But, to pity oneself as a result of them is to do oneself an enormous disservice.

I think it’s one of things we find unattractive about the american culture, a culture which I find mostly, extremely attractive, and I like americans and I love being in america. But, just occasionally there will be some example of the absolutely ravening self pity that they are capable of, and you see it in their talk shows. It’s an appalling spectacle, and it’s so self destructive. I almost once wanted to publish a self help book saying ‘How To Be Happy by Stephen Fry : Guaranteed success’. And people buy this huge book and it’s all blank pages, and the first page would just say – ‘ Stop Feeling Sorry For Yourself – And you will be happy ‘. Use the rest of the book to write down your interesting thoughts and drawings, and that’s what the book would be, and it would be true. And it sounds like ‘Oh that’s so simple’, because it’s not simple to stop feeling sorry for yourself, it’s bloody hard. Because we do feel sorry for ourselves, it’s what Genesis is all about.”
