    Are you asking questions he person cares about? Sometimes I can't be bOthered to answer an inane question when I'm busy. Other times superfluous use of caps and pinctuation annoys me and I go into fuck you mode. Mostly I just forget.

    Be short, to the point, and follow up.

    If it is a P thing, then these dudes are already used to the nagging and follow up emails by the time they get to where they are, right? So if I send reminders, it shouldn't feel like nagging to them.
    k, im gonna try it
    I think it might be a bit of both I and P, in addition to a preference for verbal exchanges over written, especially if he is a slow reader or a slow typer.

    You might be able to get an immediate answer out of him by just picking up the phone -> problem solved.

    If you hate calling, then maybe that can help you understand the converse; some people hate emailing the same way you hate calling. In that case, the problem will remain until one of you is willing to get over it. Are you willing to wait for it to be him?

    OK, I've been observing and yes, its definitely a P thing. I is event-dependent in the sense that they are getting nervous for presentations (while I'm getting pumped for the same thing)

    I hate pulling guilt trips on people.

    So here is my conclusion. Emails should be:
    -professional. Friendly chatter should be in a separate thread or offline.
    -less frequent. Set the precedent that email should be used ONLY when necessary. If you have multiple things to confer upon through the course of the day, bunch them as one in the morning and one after lunch.
    -what else?

    That was solved by smartphones
