Stressed Or Self-Importance? Intentions Vs Perceptions When Communicating Busyness

When we express busyness, what are we saying versus what are others hearing? Four preregistered studies identify a miscalibration, such that others over-perceive statements of busyness as expressing self-importance (vs. stress) and an intention to impress (vs. connect). This has interpersonal costs.
