Which Quora users have the most distinct, recognizable writing styles (for both questions and answers)?

And, of course, what are those distinctive features?
tynamite's avatar I have my own way of answering questions that I find to be unique from everyone else on this website. My friends say I talk like a politician, as they say I talk in convincing way, that when I talk, everybody understands what I'm talking about. I wonder why other people cannot do that.

  • Points being made in a structured and ordered manner. Instructions are explained methodically.
  • The constant need to clarify everything so that you agree with me
  • Opinions that sound like facts
  • Strong use of passive language. [1]
  • Written in the third person.
  • People are treat as if they are objects, unless I want to highlight to you their emotional plight.
  • Common use of exclamation marks.
  • Fun comments when talking about other people's experiences, where smilies could be used.

[1] Passive voice The reason why X happens is because of Y. People find this to be Z, and have a hissy fit about it. Active voice X happens because of Y, and people find this Z. They have a hissy fit about it.)

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
