The Danger of Using Exclamation Marks:  Why every unnecessary use of the enthusiastic punctuation says, “please like me.” Here’s how to cut back.

Hi! Hope you’re well! Great to hear from you!

I’m well-known for my cheerfulness. Even on my worst days, I put on a happy face to communicate with people outside my immediate friends and colleagues. In my emails, this behaviour manifests itself as exclamation marks.

Preoccupied with appearing nice, I used to  catch myself using exclamations at the end of every other sentence. And I’m not ashamed to admit it because, chances are, you’ve sent those emails too.

Take a look at the last few messages you sent. If you’re like me, you’ll see exclamations and other niceties peppered throughout: “Looking forward to seeing the end result!” and “I’m excited to hear from you!” and “I’m happy to help out!”

But are you?
