Why do people say "You know" so much ?
Makes having certain friendships almost impossible. How do you tell someone they say 'You know " so much and is this a insecurity thing? Do people need reassurance you are listening to them and giving them attention? it's almost insane many people end every few sentences with "You know" or "You know what I mean". Some people are social outcasts because of this practice and have no idea why people run away from them. Record yourself talking and listen to how many times you say it.STOP SAYING YOU KNOW!! Ok rant over

Well, it's hard to say, you know. You know how it is.
Funny how 'social security' has a shortfall...but never WELFARE!
Gimme a break.
Somehow, we can always afford ALL types of welfare (even for millions of illegal immigrants!), plus billions in foreign aid to nations that hate us...BUT...social security is a "problem".

Re: Why do people say "You know" so much ?
I find "you know" to be one of the interesting nuances of languages.

English speakers say it all the time. But then when I lived in Romania, I heard them say "shti" all the time which is their equivalent.

Try talking to a snowflake nowadays. If they don't say "like" in every other word you have yourself something special.

Try watching an episode of The Bachelor and listen to the one-on-one dialog. It would be hysterical to type out a transcript of it given the amount of "likes" that are spoken.

"You know" is condescending, like "You should know my field of expertise; but since you don't, I'm going to educate you."

"Um" usually means someone is fishing around in their brain for the right word or phrase.

Both are annoying and rude. I'm sure they don't type using those fillers.

Reassurance, kinda. If I'm having difficult time expressing myself and speaking functionally, I say it to confirm that my thoughts are understood... Maybe I'm just awkward, you know?

Re: Why do people say "You know" so much ?
I would think that each language would have their own individual type of "you know." Maybe like the equivalent of "you hear" or "you see."

But for some reason the literal "to know" seems to be pervasive across most languages.

Re: Why do people say "You know" so much ?
I notice the really needy people do this . When you are on the phone with these types they have to constantly be validating that you are in fact still there on the line. They say "you know " "right?" over and over. The other trigger word seems to be " Anyways" why do these people use "anyways" so much? They seem to discount what they just told you and say anyways as if it is not important or they say anyways after you say something. These learned behaviors are ectremely annoying because they constantly have to bring your attention by asking you to maintenance therm on the phone by asking you if you know what they mean. I tell people does a newspaper article say "you know " in it? Does it ask you if you are still reading every few sentences? This is a serious problem the speaking habits of many. I say " Dude you are you knowing the shit out of me." Wow it's everywhere. Thanks for all the good input and I think yes it is because they do not know.
