During my yesterday’s training, we were discussing about styles of communication. From the style of communication, we will be able to deduce the likeness of a person. There are at least four styles of communications:

  1. Expresser
  2. Driver
  3. Relater
  4. Analytical

Below table will show the traits of each style, how to deal with them, etc:

A person usually has one dominant style, and one sub-dominant style (E.g. John guessed that I myself is a driver and analytical). Hopefully, by knowing the style of the person we are communicating with, it will increase the success of the communication.

It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be perilled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be perilled in every single battle.

– Sun Tzu

The first that come to my mind when reading above table was “what is my wife’s communication styles?” 😀

So, can you identify what’s your own style of communication?
