If you have a pet name for your computer like "snuckems" or "magic machine" you may not be alone. According to a recent study conducted by Sega and iShare, more than two out of five Japanese women regularly have conversations with their computers. Even more staggering? Apparently, 10.2 percent of women gave their computer a nickname, such as "Mac-kun," "Pasoko," "Pudding" or my personal favorite, "Princess."
Young women are also likely to talk to themselves during times of high stress, or when they do something wrong, says the Mainichi Daily News. Other tech-related habits include decorating their computers or work areas with stuffed toys, and in a few cases giving their computers names.
