  • No. not at all.

    My DH stutters all the time. When he is relaxed, he will not do it as much. If he is excited, mad or talking really fast, he will stutter. He says he tries to spit it out, but it just doesn't work out in his favor. He says it's like his mind wants to spew eveything out all at once, but his mouth wont let him. He's had speach thereapy when he was younger, but it didn't help at all.

  • No...I have a friend that stutters on a normal basis but when she gets pissed, there is no stuttering.

  • No, it's just a processing issue - it's just how it "comes out", has nothing to do with their ability to think.

  • I doubt it. I'm pretty sure they can hear the words clearly in their head, but getting them out is the problem. My brother stutters, I will have to ask him.
