You know that favorite word you like to say 16 times in conversation?
A humorous post from Liz Gannes at All Things D, found the Google CEO’s favorite word.
Larry Page is so excited. And he just can’t hide it…Page does like to talk about how excited he is.
Having noticed the Google CEO’s fondness for using variations of “exciting” and “excited” when discussing his company’s products and businesses, we at AllThingsD had a bit of fun with the transcripts from his recent earnings calls.
Since Page reassumed the CEO role last year, he hit an all-time high of 16 mentions of “excited” on last year’s third-quarter call. His company’s performance made him both “incredibly excited” and “amazingly excited.”
This quarter, Page was a bit more muted: only eight mentions.
Not that we’re claiming to be scientific — at all — but Page does seem to be more effusive when Google beats analysts’ estimates for Google’s earnings per share.
