Roadmaps to the TALK2ME© System

Men and Women Communicating

Bookmark and Share

The usefulness of the TALK2ME system in improving relationship communication is unmatched. What one husband and community leader had to say about understanding the different viewpoints of Empathizer and Instigator communicators to promote conflict-free communication with his wife…


I always knew there was something missing in my understanding of personalities. The best explanation that I was able to craft was to an analogy of men in the old West, i.e., that there are two types of men: the ones that rode horses and the ones that rode stagecoaches.

After my initial consultation with you and subsequently reading the information contained in your website, my eyes have been opened, and clarity of thought now prevails.

Dr. O’Grady, you have been able to define and explain the missing elements of what I’ve been trying to figure out. I’ve studied many of the greats, Zig Ziglar, Dale Carnegie, Jackie Cooper, Joe Verde, and others. I’ve bought their tapes, attended their seminars, and developed communication strategies following their outlines, but none of these great motivators and teachers has ever unlocked the basic human psychological traits in such a manner as you and in such a way that is so meaningful.

Learning word tracts and/or altering word tracts to fit my individual personality is OK, but I believe that understanding the personality traits of the person I’m dealing with is far more valuable, which for the first time, I now understand in ways that previously had me mystified.

I’ll be in touch, as I want to see if we can arrange to get you in front of our men’s ministry to do a seminar or two.

    Thanks for helping me better understand relationship communication through the TALK2ME© system. My wife and I were going in different directions, like two ships passing in the night. Tensions were high. Disagreements frequent. We had stopped listening to each other. I can’t remember the last time we had a shouting match, since we started using new talk tools. That tells me she’s happy again. I’ve learned from my mistakes and put the past behind me. There’s not any resentment anymore. There’s more of an understanding relationship. We used to get caught up in arguing. I see my wife as less defensive, but I’ve taken the wall down. As an Instigator communicator, I used to put her in a difficult position as an Empathizer, until she tuned me out. I always knew the answers but I didn’t know how to apply them. It’s been a real positive that problems have seemed to almost solve themselves.
