Are descriptive words "pale" when making new acquaintances?

Words have a implied academic meaning to them ,but words are used to express yourself. Their are several words with similar academic meanings. We chose to use the words that we naturally choose to remember, learn, apply.

May words reflect one's personality on a deeper level, on a "historical" level in their own lives?
Like a echo, vibration, may words reflect simply, yet complexly, how you've learned to express yourself as you're ego, psyche, personality has developed, grown? As you develop more and more inter personal relationships with others does your own personal dynamic of word usage grow, mold, evolve, to have deeper waves of meaning, significance to you and others? As you're exposed to emotions?

As your personality naturally unfolds, and you have similar brain wave patterns, give way to similar behaviors, tendencies, as you become comfortable with your individuality and mature as a presence, from your interpersonal relationships do you now use words to express yourself as a role in your relationships, life?


May word use have a extended use of memory beyond simply remembering the word itself and it's meaning? May descriptive words have a deeper connection, one that helps express individualism and preserve that individualism?

With a conscious , do words perserve within memory, a history unfolded of the maturing process of your personality, that you've understood and related to through ideas/ words and emotions?

As your personality grows , and develops do words and ideas mature along with you, as a intellectual property of how you've learned and come to express yourself as a indivudal, who houses that personality?

Is there a far greater actual MEANING to descriptive words than just the academic definition?

When meeting some one for the first time are actual descriptive words irrelvant even though they have a supposed academic meaning? Do descriptive words have little weight, conscious when first meeting some one?

Once you consider emotional/ intellectual maturity do the words you choose to use reflect your own personality and your own experiences and feelings and intellectual / "historical" properiies of mind?

Emotions are part of the experience of life, when you consider emotions, may emotions also help to create some sort of "extended memory" beyond the academic meaning of words between yourself and others? A easy example is the word "love" . Take I "love" you for example.

    Probably.

    @post said: I tell people all the time - if you're trying to tell someone about yourself, leave the adjectives out of it. Use actions, instead. One action is a lot of adjectives. It speaks for itself. Tell people what you've accomplished and what you do. Let them assign the adjectives they believe fit. This works for almost any writing. Nouns and verbs should be the meat and potatoes, and there should be more of them than the salt and pepper that represents your adjectives and adverbs. For example, if you say, "I'm a badass," people will probably think you're something less flattering - probably just arrogant. If you say, "I'm a Navy Seal with a tenth degree black belt in jujitsu," then badass will be the least of the appropriate adjectives that people will be associating with you. It's best to let people draw their own adjectives because adjectives are so subjective. I tell people I'm opening my own café, I got a BA in history, and I went skydiving - that I write short stories and play the keyboard. It sums me up with all the adjectives you can imagine, but doesn't make me seem arrogant for describing myself with said adjectives. I'm not a fan of adjectives at all. Let the ungarnished description speak for itself. It will, if it's worthy.
