SUPERSTAR COMMUNICATOR

If you understand your specific communicator type of Empathizer or Instigator communicator, you are already cruising down the two-way communicator highway, admirably avoiding many accidents and misunderstandings that bruise relationships. If you understand the negative perceptions or prejudices about your communicator type and how you are viewed unfavorably by your opposite type when you’re under stress, then you are a Star Communicator. If you use the strengths of both E- and I-type communicators, you are a Superstar Communicator.

YOU CHOOSE THE MOOD OF YOUR TALK

You choose to be positive or negative in your communication mood mode. Positive communicators talk in the language of their fellow talk traveler to hear and understand more deeply and completely, and then act more assertively when problems need to be solved…after the talking is done. Check out what a recent TALK2ME© mood management workshop group ciphered out….

Tend to be passive aggressive

Too apologetic when not at fault

Demonstrate sincere, non-verbal expressions of hearing you out

Listen completely before acting
