You can call it the email gender gap,but a new book has claimed that men really like it short while women like it long.
According to the book ‘Code Switching: How to Talk So Men Will Listen’,women tend to write long e-messages,which express support,and are more personal and emotive,while men are to the point with precise orders.
Interestingly,this is not the only area where men and women find themselves at odds.
Women play the role of “office mother” offering to lend a sympathetic ear,while men play devil’s advocate and act in a challenging way. Likewise,while females make the effort to laugh at jokes and make colleagues feel good about themselves,males are more likely to be the joke teller.
Women act in a passive manner,letting colleagues talk over them and interrupt,while men are more likely to do the interrupting,the book says.
