Scottish researchers say how people use emails can be matched with bird behavior. They have put email users into 12 categories.  The night owl is a midnight emailer who forgets that people want to have time off.  The peacock tends to put everybody in copy, even if they don’t need to know. The woodpecker  is constantly checking for new mail. The team concluded that the perfect emailer is the robin, who tries,if possible,  to speak to people in person.
