Communication is only 7% words. The rest is style, tone, affect and ritual. These are heavily influenced by personality, culture and many other dimensions. Often-times, it is a stylistic conflict that becomes interpersonal struggle. Carl Jung, pioneer in the social sciences, defined four styles that help us understand one another still today. This work became the foundation for full personality assessments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. By knowing your own style, you can better understand what your own triggers are and how to adjust your own style to better work with another one.
