Why We Use Jargon

Why We Use Jargon

Jargon is used by people to convey certain information in a shortened way and is irritating to hear for some. It conveys a tone of pride and is exclusionary by default.

Studies about using jargons reveal that people with this behavioural trait are insecure or are usually from lower-status institutions.

Unnecessary Jargon: A Major Turn-Off

Research shows that the business world, especially venture capitalists, investors and knowledgeable insiders, are unimpressed by unnecessary jargon, and can even form a negative perception towards new technologies. Doctors using medical jargon are often uncommunicative to the patient.

Even experts agree that certain key terms in jargon can mean different things to different people, making the whole exercise useless.

The Good Side Of Jargon

Jargon is sometimes useful as it makes information concise and clear, at least to the experts. It also helps objectify the problem and create a certain distance, helping in situations (like in the medical field) where emotions may be detrimental to the situation.

Jargons help in forming ‘code words’ which are understood by the inner circle, and create bonds between fellow workers in the same domain.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
