My favorite word is solipsism.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about the strict philosophical position. If I were one of those I would not be writing this post as I already know what MY favorite word is. Come to think of it, I wonder if any hardcore solipsists would ever blog. After all, who needs to when you are a solitary community of one?
I simply think that all individuals tend to lean in the direction of overindulgence in their own sense of importance and their own feelings all too often. Plus, I really like the way it sounds.
Now onto the neat bonus round:
A word I dislike because of the possible implications said word? Ambiguious.
If used correctly it can make you sound semi-knowledgeable in subjects you have barely even skimmed. It can also keep those you are debating unable to get a clear understanding of your stance as you haven’t really said anything of substance to go on, at all. (Even after five painful pages worth of jargon.) Grrrrrr…. Ambiguous thou art thy mortal enemy!
