Does written word have more of an impact than spoken word? Why or why not?


My feeling is that is does indeed carry more weight. My initial feelings as to why are that when something is written, it has the element of sustainability. It's more permanent. Also, when someone reads an article, or book, or a hub, they're "hearing" it in their own voice, as though it's something they are telling themselves. I'm interested in hearing what you think.
