Human communication is only made up of 7% actual words. The rest is style, tone, affect and ritual. All of the non-verbal aspects that are heavily influenced by personality, culture and so many other dimensions. Often-times, what presents as interpersonal struggle, is actually communication styles in conflict. 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.
