Abstract

According to Kato & Akahori (2005) and Kato, Kato, & Akahori (2006), subjects with whom emotional transmissions did not work well in CMC processes had produced more negative and hostile emotions in their experiments. Based on these results, the hypothesis "emotional transmission will not work well if those emotions are produced more since negative and hostile emotions do not communicate with partners easily" was proposed in this research. This hypothesis was verified by focusing on the subjects' emotional traits about the causal relationship of the emotions experienced in email communication and their emotional transmissions. As a result, this hypothesis is supported, and neither negative emotions nor hostile emotions communicate with partners easily in email communication. That is, the results which suggest that the emotional transmissions of those emotions are difficult were obtained.
