Another writing prompt!
Do you think you begin more sentences with "I" or "you?"
Hmm. I think probably I. I feel like it'd be pretty weird to start a lot of sentences with "you". I'm not sure, other than compliments, what sentences should be started with "you". Do I think this because I had so much therapy in the 90's? Is "I-language" a 90's thing?
I like to say "we" most of all. It is a really good trick I learned when freelancing. If you say something like "Yeah we can get you this information for sure", then it sounds like you've got a giant team ready to spring into action. In real life, I was probably wearing raccoon pyjamas and eating Nutella with a spoon.
Anyway, am I way off on this? Does it make me a super self-involved person that I don't start more sentence with "you'?
I think a better question would be "In a conversation, do you ask more questions or answer more questions". One think I have found while going on OkCupid dates is that guys who identify as straight are the least likely to ask me questions about myself. Khela from The Blow tweeted something recently that I just tried to find like "Did you ever notice men never ask any questions in a conversation? Try it, it gives you so much power".
