A new study shows that using emojis in work emails makes you seem incompetent. Th Israeli survey polled 550 people in 29 different countries and found that the use of emoji’s at work goes hand-in-hand with the perception that you are incompetent. People were asked to read an anonymous e-mail where the body of the message was always the same but sometimes it included smiley faces, which apparently gives the perception of a low vocabulary and the in-ability to use words. Often people use emoji’s to appear more friendly but the use of a smiley face apparently has no effect on the perception of warmth.
