Is swearing good at work?

According to a 2016 survey, Americans do this roughly 80 times every day. Swearing at work, though, is still banned, even if you’re 35 minutes late for a meeting and have a freshly prepared coffee in your hand. Indeed, according to a 2015 survey, 81% of employers believe that swearing at work “raises employee professionalism.”

Many studies show that swearing has numerous advantages in both our personal and professional lives. Let’s take a look at a couple of them.

Individually, those who swear are less prone to deceive, possess greater levels of honesty and emotional intelligence, have larger vocabularies, and have higher IQs.

Swearing expresses thoughts and opinions that are not expressed in normal language, allowing people to learn more about the other person from dialogues and, as a result, form closer bonds that lead to high trust. Using the appropriate phrases (soft or strong) demonstrates that you understand the psychology of the person you’re speaking with, increasing their likelihood of trusting you.

Swearing has even been shown to be beneficial to one’s health. Are you able to bend your toes? A simple “oh, crap, come on!” can actually relieve pain and improve pain tolerance. Participants in a study conducted by Keele University in the United Kingdom were able to keep their hands submerged in ice for 50% longer when they cursed rather than using neutral language.

Regular swearers experience increased circulation, endorphin production, and a general sensation of calm, control, and happiness. There is no need for a prescription.

Swearing in the office can actually help you advance. According to studies, swearing improves an argument’s effectiveness and persuasiveness. Manufacturing and IT teams, for example, are more cohesive and effective because they laugh with each other more profanely and trust each other more as a result. According to Gong’s examination of his more than 73,000 sales conversations, swearing by both sides can result in more victories, 18 percent more to be exact.

Despite the fact that all studies support its numerous benefits, swearing is nevertheless frowned upon, particularly in a professional atmosphere. Prospects are more comfortable swearing than sales reps, according to the same study, and they even wait until later-stage conversations to do so. Sales people, on the other hand, boost their swearing levels by 400% when a prospect adds some flavor to the dialogue, potentially leading to a better end.

Because swearing is still frowned upon among women, they are hesitant to do so. As a result, males swear 39 percent more in sales, although both women and men swear frequently in normal situations.

Americans are cursing more than ever before, but the trend isn’t carried over into the job, and swearing still has a stigma attached to it. Try saying something ‘disruptive’ the next time you’re brainstorming, working on a team, or just wanting some help meeting your quarterly sales goal.
