When Describing Intoxication, Women Use Softer Terms Like ‘Tipsy’

 This isn’t because inebriation has left you without your faculties, however. According to a new study from the University at Buffalo, SUNY, people use different words like “hammered” or “tipsy” to describe their level of intoxication.

More specifically, however, men and women tend to use these words differently to describe how they feel. Not surprisingly, men are more likely to use harder-hitting words like “hammered” or “wasted” while women were found to more often use words like “buzzed” or “tipsy.” Researchers say it’s important to understand how people use these words to make people aware of problem drinking as well as to help them understand when they truly have had too many and shouldn’t drive.
