I have noticed that if I am emotionally involved with either a discussion or a response I make typos. The way I found this out was rereading my discussions and my responses when I rate them. I guess body language tells all.

This happens to me, too, whether typing or talking. Proof of how connected our mind and body really are.

It happens when I go too quickly, but it could be that I go too quickly sometimes when I am caught up in an emotion. Had never thought of it that way!

It happens to me sometimes you just simply have to say what you wanna say without minding any mistakes. It could be an impulse reaction to a sensitive topic that you are engaged to.

Your emotion touched me. It makes your discussion or response interesting.I like those.

I'm bilingual (English mother tongue, French second language). I find that, when I get angry, especially, my spoken French gets REALLY good LOL! I think it's because I just speak without hesitation... I don't stop to consider other ways to say the same thing... I don't think about holding back or correcting myself... and out it comes. I imagine that typed speech would also be equally impacted by emotion.
