    Default Having said that vs That being said

    Could anyone tell me what the difference is between the english phrases 'having said that' and 'that being said'? Thanks!

    They mean the same.

    I am not a teacher.

    To me there is a slight, although not important, difference.

    "Having said that" means to me that the person who is speaking is referring to his/her own words.

    "That being said" to me would indicate that the person speaking is possibly referring to someone else's previously spoken words.
