Background of the investigation
In recent years, a new type of harassment called “maruhara” has been attracting attention, in which people feel intimidated by using period marks (.), mainly in texts such as chats.
Therefore, we conducted a survey among 500 men and women across the country to find out how most people actually feel.

When we conducted a survey, it became clear that there were many different ways of looking at it. The breakdown was 24.6% for “politeness,” 9.0% for “feeling intimidated,” 6.0% for “feeling of distance,” 3.6% for “angry,” and 18.6% for those who perceived it negatively. There seem to be several. On the other hand, the most common response was “I’m not really concerned about it” at 64.8%.
By gender

differences between men and women in most items, but women were slightly more likely to answer “feeling intimidated.” In the case of women, there are a wide variety of situations in which women are more susceptible to harassment than men, including not only power harassment but also sexual harassment and harassment related to maternity and childcare leave, so they are more sensitive to how they receive messages from their seniors and superiors. There may be. By age

I found that there is a tendency to Also, when looking at the breakdown of how people feel about it, “politeness” receives a certain number of responses from all age groups. On the other hand, there were significant differences between people in their 20s and 30s and those in their 50s and 60s in terms of “feeling intimidated,” “feeling distant,” and “angry.” Among the younger generation, many people have a negative sense of intimidation and distance from the previously common usage of adding a period at the end of a sentence, and it can be seen that the so-called “maruhara” has become a big gap between generations. Masu.
By occupation

On the other hand, students and part-time workers were the most likely to feel negatively, such as feeling “intimidated” or “feeling distant.” In the case of students and part-time workers, it is thought that there are more young people than in other occupations, and as with the data by age group, it seems that the new values ​​held by the younger generation in recent years are having an influence. It is inferred. Nowadays, companies are working to ensure thorough compliance, and an increasing number of companies are focusing on preventing harassment. However, in the case of “maruhara”, unlike power harassment or sexual harassment, the problem is not in the behavior itself, so it may be difficult to take countermeasures at present.
However, there is no doubt that it is essential to understand that there are people with different backgrounds and values, and to respect each other.
