quote:Originally posted by davidjuliowangHypothesis:I believe that the British accent, because of its inherent nature in placing greater "stress" on pronounced syllables, and more careful attention to "enunciation" of syllables, is conducive to directing thought patterns naturally into a more LOGICAL, PRECISE, and DISCIPLINED state.Simply stated, Britons are naturally more logical, precise and disciplined partially as a result of an accent which "habituates" the mind into being more logical, precise and disciplined.
quote:Originally posted by davidjuliowangI happen to know for a fact that since I place a lot of emphasis on my own careful selection of words, that my own thought patterns are more logical, precise and disciplined than many of my more "colloquial" countrypersons.
quote:Originally posted by Santi2cI think you should be a little less cautious when jumping to the conlusion that humans think with words and not pictures. That's far too simplistic.
quote:Originally posted by UltimaEth what do you mean by patterns? I admit that most of the time my thoughts are like an internal dialogue, but quite often if the problem isn't suited to "words" I imagine a scenario...? Especially when programming, its sort of impossible to imagine a 5 dimensional linked list of other data structures in "words" so I think of it is a bunch of cubes or people holding hands (is this what you mean by "patterns")
quote:I think that careful choice of words has more to do with upbringing and/or lexical ability than much else.
