The Meaning Behind One-Word Answers
Whether it's through an email or text, people have mixed thoughts about receiving one-word answers. They aren't tricky to figure out; they are more annoying than anything.
Recently on the show, Mark talked about how 34% of the population thinks that sending one-worded answers through texting is rude. I agree with him to an extent because it all depends on the content of the message. For example, you could be confirming a time to meet with a friend or asking someone what they want for dinner.
Bolde released a story about different meanings behind one-word answers. The Top 10 meanings of one-word answers include:
1. It Makes Me Think You Hate Me- This may seem true if someone is sending a paragraph in a message the only response is, "Cool" or "Great." It just looks like you are mad at the other person sending the message.
2. It's Rude- You wouldn't say a one-word answer in-person so why say it over an email or text?
3. I'll Want To Assume You Want To End The Conversation- Some people who send one-word answers might be done talking to you. If you can take a hint, then just stop the conversation.
