Whatever it is that you want to achieve in life, there is only one thing you need, Curiosity!

Throughout my life, I have been curious about the world around me and the people I meet. This has caused me to ask questions. Lots of questions! As a psychologist and verbal communication specialist, I estimate that I have conducted over 18,000 interviews with clients who were looking for clarity.  I have learned the art of listening  in order to understand them. And what their needs are. What I have also learned is that what people say may not be what they meant!

I wrote this book to help people become more aware of the words they use and to improve their outcomes, by increasing their vocabulary!  This book shows you how!

Because speech comes so naturally to us, we hardly ever think about it. Most of the time we respond automatically by saying the first thing that comes into our head.  No wonder we find ourselves in trouble from time to time.

Jos has become a sought-after public speaker and has built a reputation for helping both individuals and companies change outcomes by communicating better. He encourages people to look in the mirror, and ask questions of themselves. Such as where do you want to go? What do you really want to achieve today? These questions, and many more, are the starting point of every personal conversation or group training.

Psychologist and Verbal communications specialist Jos Frederiks has come to one conclusion. What we say is very often not what we meant!   In his new book, “Imprisoned by Words” he demonstrates how we speak without thinking and listen without hearing!

“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”

Robert McCloskey

“I am Curious”

The Oxford English Dictionary estimates that there are over 600,000 words in current use.

Compared to other languages, English has a vast vocabulary, with only a few languages having more words.


Most adult native speakers of the English language, have a range of only 15,000 to 35,000 words.

Why do we restrict our potential by having so few words at our disposal?

Is the key to success to have a larger vocabulary?

Are those with the fewest words at a disadvantage in life?

Use better words

Get better outcomes!
