Gender Differences in Perceived Gratifications Obtained through Electronic Mail
Harper, Vernon B., Jr.; Harper, Erika J.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v11 n1 p47-51 2010
Electronic mail provides users with unique positive psychological consequences that differentiate it from other media. These consequences or gratifications have been mentioned separately across the electronic mail literature, yet there is no specific measure for these gratifications. The study found that females (M = 7.7; SD = 1.8) achieve higher levels (SD = 1.9 F = 28.02; p less than 0.01; [eta] = 0.31) of interpersonal gratification than do males (M = 6.5; SD = 1.9). (Contains 2 tables.)
