Psychology Today!

I think this article is very amusing!


Want to predice the outcome of a spousal spat? Tally up pronous. The person who says, "we" the most during and argument puts forward the best solutions, according to a study in Psychology Science. "We" - users may have a sense of shared interest that sparks compromises and other ideas pleasing to both partners. "You" - sayers, to the contrary, tend to criticize, disagree, justify and otherwise teem with negativity.
But sometimes criticism comes in handy. When one partner complains that he or she feels under attack, the other can ease the tension by rephrasing scentences to use the winning "we."
