The Relationship Between Personality Traits and Attitudes Toward Text Message Responses
Midwestern Psychological Association
The type of response (text based, emoticon based, or none at all) to a negative text message was assessed. Participants preferred text based, over emoticon based, over no response. Personality factors related to these preferences were also assessed. Thoughtful written responses appear to be the preferred way to communicate support.
