This quiz is designed to help you measure your level of workplace stress derived from “digital static,” the gap between what the writer writes and what the reader understands.


When we communicate in the digital space, we’re not able to rely on the social cues we typically do in person, like body language, voice inflection, and facial expression. We’re forced to rely on text alone to discern meaning and inference.

Not having complete clarity in understanding leads to our fight-or-flight instinct, which causes anxiousness and increases stress. 

After the quiz you’ll receive a percentage score. The higher your score, the greater your digital static. You’ll also receive a “desktop detox,” a short series of exercises designed to help you clear digital static from your brain.


Thank you for participating.

Be well, 

Dr. Mary
