Abstract [en]

The reliance on IT-mediated communication involvesinterpersonal exchanges without face-to-facecontact. However, this does not preclude emotionalexchange. Have we not all at some point engaged in e-mail exchange where facts, fantasies and contagion caused us to get caught in spiralingexchanges of increasingly emotional and decreasingly rational e-mail? The purpose here is to explore e-mail conversations perceived as going awry, in terms of negative emotional escalation. Backtracking e-mail conversations using discourse analysis and interviews, factors leading to an ‘‘emotional tipping point’’ and beyond were identified. Concludingly, psychological and managerial aspects on how then to avoid emotional escalation are derived.
