    Default Communication Style Tests

    Meryl Runion's SpeakStrong Inc. Communication Style Inventory Page

    I got reflective then redid the test and got achiever which isn't me at all so I'll stick with reflective for now but that doesn't sound like me either. The questions are limiting. Will post for interest.

    REFLECTIVE: Task-Oriented with a Careful Pace

    You take your time and focus on the task at hand, information and procedures. You think things through before you take action and you create systems and procedures for everything you do. Your thinking is logical and your words are logical as well. You go from A to B to C to D and it is easy to follow your message. You choice of words is precise, which minimizes confusion.

    So then I went looking and found this Communication Style Test

    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.

    Achiever: Task-Oriented with a Swift Pace

    You are very focused and results-oriented. You want what you want and you want it NOW, with little patience for excuses or social nicety. You are Task-Oriented and move at a fast pace. "Just make it happen" is one of your mantras.


    Honestly Expressive : You place the highest value on total, unadorned honesty, which means that you speak your mind at all times. Because you feel so passionately about your beliefs, you sometimes get all fired up during disagreements with your partner and others. You tend to be most comfortable with a partner who is just as fond of uncensored self-expression as you are. But bear in mind that not every minor disagreement needs to turn into a huge debate.

    LIKEABLE: People-Oriented with a Careful Pace
    You are social and you take your time in life. As a result, you speak in a very personal manner. It’s not about things for you, it’s about people. You make your associates your friends and you care about the details in their lives. You measure your success by the relationships you develop.

    VISIONARY: People-Oriented with a Swift Pace

    You are highly social and like to be on the go. It’s about fun and adventure for you. You tend to be the center of attention in any group and that’s the way you like it. You look toward the future and are full of ideas of possibilities. You thrive on change and innovation. You appeal to the imagination of your listener. People find your words inspiring and find themselves persuaded by you. You are idealistic and visionary, and you can inspire vision in others and motivate them. You also are very fun!

    Agreed with the first test, but with the second I actually relate a lot more to the "Honestly Expressive" description.

    sure..but the second and third seem contradictory. not that they are inaccurate..

    : 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.

    Peacekeeper : Regarding communication, you place a high value on emotional harmony and smooth, even dynamics in relationships, and you work hard to create a positive, pleasant home environment. You therefore may work well with a partner who can gently remind you that not all difficulties can simply be "smoothed over" or "wished away." Indeed, the healthiest relationships involve two partners who are willing to open up and discuss difficult issues rather than ignore them.

    Your survey answers indicate you are a Tactful Truthteller

    Yeah pretty much

    But there are only three types and they have some overlap

    I prefer personality tests that don't have "right" and "wrong" answers.

    When communicating with your significant other which is your preferred method?
    a) torture them at length and murder them when you have all the information you need.
    b) Calm and thoughtful discourse in which everyone comes away a wiser and more enlightened soul. You have never argued in your life. You are practically god-like in character and everyone is touched by your humility and depth. Even people in front of you at the checkout line.
    I don't wanna!

    ACHIEVER: Task-Oriented with a Swift Pace
    You are very focused and results-oriented. You want what you want and you want it NOW, with little patience for excuses or social nicety. You are Task-Oriented and move at a fast pace. “Just make it happen” is one of your mantras.

    Say What You Mean (Think/Wantl)
    Strengths: People do not have to guess what your opinion is. They know when you are upset or frustrated and they know what you want. That gives them the comfort of knowing there will not be unforeseen time bombs.

    Areas for Development: Be collaborative. While you are excellent at informing others of what you think and feel, you are likely to be less open to the thoughts and feelings of others.

    Say What You Mean (Feel)
    Strengths: People know when they have upset you, so there is no worry of stepping on a landmine with you.

    Areas for Development: Get vulnerable. You often avoid expressing appreciation, sorrow, grief and regret. There are times where getting vulnerable gets results.

    Mean What You Say - Strengths
    Strengths:
    a.) You have tremendous power of will behind your words.
    b.) People have the comfort of knowing where they stand with you.

    Areas for Development:
    a.) Avoid being rigid and overly demanding.
    b.) Get compassionate. You underestimate the needs of others for personal reinforcement. While you are rarely deliberately unkind, you can come across as rude because you are so focused on results that you can seem abrupt. You also tend to order others around and overlook the need to listen.
    They're absolutely correct. These come so unnaturally to me, I have considerable improvement to do before they transform into habits.

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.

    I attempt to listen, but it doesn't imply that I'm any good at it.
