2 Style Matching My language style matching is a 0.75 which is average. According to the LSM the more that the two people are paying attention to each other in their interactions, the higher the LSM is. LSM is higher in ongoing conversations such as IMs, telephone calls, or face-to-face conversations. LSM is lower in emails, letters, or other less direct interactions. The more similar the topic and the mindset of the two authors, the more the LSM score should be similar. If I would of have better emails to go off of I would have a better LSM, but I really don’t email many people and if I do it is a small conversation. I also abbreviate words, like because instead of saying that I say cuz, before would be b4, so on and so on. Do you think the results provide by the Language Style Matching website are accurate?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
