Your emails have a 50-50 chance of missing the mark">Your emails have a 50-50 chance of missing the mark

We probably get more than our fair share of emails, and chat back and forth with hundreds of people each month, due to coordinating BAVeg stuff. I’m know we’ve gotten our wires crossed or upset people over the years and often we couldn’t understand why people just could not understand what we were saying. Now I know why –

According to recent research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people have only a 50-50 chance of ascertaining the tone of any e-mail message. The study also shows that people think they’ve correctly interpreted the tone of e-mails they receive 90 percent of the time.
