Yeah. Though I think that verbs are more descriptive in this sense, especially for men...

Yes, I agree. Actually, the language we use reflects our personalities.

The adejctives used by anyone in conversations are the strata of his/her culture environment. In other words, the way we use language shows how much educated is our view of this world.
I totally agree with Mr Twain.

A man's character may be learned from how many other Parts of Speech (than a Noun) he can habitually convert the F word into, and still maintain clarity in an elliptical conversation. Sick

But as he wrote: "As to the Adjective: When in doubt, strike it out.- Pudd'nhead Wilson"
