You choice of words is precise, which minimizes confusion.PowerPhrase Principle Reflective Strengths & Areas For Development
- You only speak when you have something to say.
- Get succinct. You often include too much detail and find it difficult to be brief. You need to abridge your analysis to a brief, understandable review.
- When you say you'll be there at 3:32, you are there at 3:32. Your facts and details are accurate, dependable and reliable.
- Get simple. Those who do not have the mind for details that you do cannot follow your level of analysis. You need to distill your words to the most significant details.
- You can focus to the depth of precision. When you study or describe something you follow it to the final conclusion without distraction or wavering. Your logic in description is impeccable.
- Get comprehensive. You are the proverbial "Can't see the forest for the trees" personality. Oh, you see every tree, and want to describe every tree in detail, but need to make mention of the outcome and big picture. You also can be inflexible about alternative views. You also can get obsessive, and have trouble letting go when your world is not in perfect order.
- Say What You Mean (Think)
- You consider your thoughts with care before you speak them. When you express your thoughts, they are very carefully formulated.
- Your thoughts need to be better balanced with feeling. You are likely to wait until you are certain of your thoughts, which keeps you from the benefit of others' input.
- Say What You Mean (Feel)
- When you express feelings, you really mean them.
- Get personal. Your conversation can sound impersonal and devoid of emotion. People often have to guess what you are feeling. (Of course, you may not know that yourself.)
- Mean What You Say
- You are so certain of your facts that you can bet your retirement fund on them. (And you are so cautious you probably did not lose your principle when the market tanked.) You do not say anything unless you can speak with absolute precision and certainty. You mean everything you say, and that's a fact.
- You can be rigid about what you say because you thought so carefully about it. You need to allow more room for the fallibility of others.
- Don't Be Mean When You Say It
- Your considered nature keeps you from blurting out hurtful things you regret later.
- Your attention to detail can cause you to be critical, rigid and unkind. You are more focused on tasks than people, and as a result, you can come across as hurtful.
Tactful Truthteller : You value diplomacy, kindness and honesty, which means you are highly skilled at listening to and negotiating with your partner and others. Because you believe so strongly in open but positively worded communication, you prefer to discuss problems rather than ignore them, albeit in an utterly diplomatic manner. You may work well with a partner who values honest and open -- but also kindly phrased -- communication as much as you do.
