Cursing is a sign of high intelligence, study shows

Intelligent people use more curse words, according to a scientific study from Marist College.

The research suggests that a healthy vocabulary of curse words is a sign of a rhetorical skill.

The study revealed that people who could name the most swear words in one minute tend to have a greater overall vocabulary.

In the end, the participants of the study were able to come up with 533 different taboo words.

Curse word fluency was found to be connected to traits of neuroticism and openness.

The study also showed no major difference in results between men and women

So congratulations, you're a f***ing genius!
