  • Psychology -

    I didn't know emails had sex characteristics. Oh, you mean the sender.

    Archival method as in searching through old emails?

    Well, whose files are you searching? Will that make a difference? That is going to take a long time, isn't it? Who is going to count something as a question. Often, in emails, people don't use punctuation, right.
    Do men have more to declare? and Women have to ask what they meant?

  • Psychology -

    I definitely agree with bobpursley about defining your method of sampling e-mails.

    In the terminology of psychology, sex is biological, while gender implies both biology and cultural/environmental factors.

    I searched Google under the key words "archival method advantages" to get these possible sources:

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
