Hey Elites,
Recently I have been hearing "I personally believe" from lots of people and I think it is an inappropriate phrase to use. When people are using "I personally believe" I think they should use "I believe" which should be same.
English is not my native language and I don't understand the usage of "I believe" and "I personally believe".
Please clear my doubt Elites?

I too came across people who said a couple of times "I personally believe". I think there believing is based on their past experience with what they are speaking about.

In my language we just say "I believe" but I think that "I personally believe" is fine as well as it's what they believe in and not what others do

Instead of "i personally belive" they should be saying, "in my opinion" or "i belive" or "i think".
But it's ok i think.

BTW not a native english speaker here too :)

Because " I personally believe " sounds much better and it is more profesional and you also emphasize that its your own opinion because people are dumb.

THIS IS HOW I RANK

if you need help PM me :)

It's just to make themselves sound more intelligent as they can use a word longer than say six characters ;)

Work hard, Play Hard!

Maybe you are right. They are emphasizing on their personal experience when saying it.
