Your communication style is: The storyteller
Just like all the great storytellers of the past, you can ignite the imagination of the people who listen to you, sweep them up and inspire them. This is probably the most flexible communication style there is, and it is also reflected in your character - you’re someone who isn’t afraid of changes and even looks forward to them. You're a sociable, optimistic person who tends to get excited about things like a child, and it's a great quality that makes people love you. At the same time, you have to remember that not everyone has time for long conversations or exciting speeches, and sometimes it is best to talk briefly and to the point in order to achieve the best results.
Your communication style is: The socialite
You are a person whose heart has a great love for the world and that is evident and appreciated by anyone who talks to you, even if it is only for a few moments. You have a special ability to create strong relationships in a short time, and the main reason for this is the fact that other people feel they can trust you. You’re usually the focus of attention at every social gathering and even if you don’t speak the most, your contribution to the conversation is great. Unlike people with other communication styles, you excel in speech and listening, but it is important to know that this is a blessing that can become a curse. If you spend all your time listening to others and dealing with their problems, one day you may find that you have neglected to take care of yourself. The good news is that if such a situation happens, there will always be people around you who will be happy to help you as you have helped them.
Your communication style is: The director
Like a Hollywood director known on the set of their new film, you also aim for a definite final outcome and don’t shy away from decisions and harsh words that can lead you there. You belong to the kind of people that friends and family always come to to hear the truth, even when it‘s difficult to say. You don’t necessarily want or need the responsibility and the role of leader that you’re given, but we have no doubt that you can deal with it very successfully. However, you should keep in mind that some people don’t always want your advice when speaking to you, sometimes all they want is your attention.
Your communication style is: The surgeon
Just like a surgeon, you also function best under clear order and logic, where the facts are what you really care about, not emotions. You’re a person who is distressed by situations of disorder and always feels the need for control, which also expresses itself in the way you communicate with the environment. A conversation with you can be a fascinating intellectual experience or tedious boredom, depending on the people you talk to. You should remember this when you talk to different people and remember that not everyone shares your strict worldview. There are people who repeat themselves, some are influenced by extreme emotions and some will just talk and talk for a long time without actually saying anything. You should just keep away from such people if they don’t suit you, and develop your strengths in front of people of a similar nature to yours.
