Hair, Renaud and Ramsay (2007) did a study and came up with three types of emailers:
1. The relaxed emailer. If you fall into this category then chances are you see email as something you will deal with as and when you have time. You don’t try to respond to emails almost instantaneously. You expect others to be relaxed about email as well.
2. The driven emailer. For you email must be replied to immediately. You see it as more like an ongoing conversation. Responding quickly is important for you.
3. The stressed emailer. For you email is just a source of stress and you don’t see it as that useful. You feel the pressure to respond.
