    This are interesting short quiz with apt accuracy. I enjoyed it. Good work Mark!

    I read this article when I was doing research defining my own communication style. Mark Murphy’s article provides a more advanced look into communication style opposed to the generic lists (friendly, confident, open-minded, etc) found during my research. However, when I took the quiz, surprisingly I scored as an Analytical thinking, but after much thought, I found my communication style is a mix of all. Great article. Thanks!

    This was mostly very true. Especially the part about wanting and needing data. I also resonate with the logic. Great quiz, unexpected outcome.

    Did not know I was so untouchable, I have a lot to learn.
    A Life Plan for effective Human Relations should be my goal since I do work with the public.

    Fairly accurate assessment.

    All I can say is WOW! That communicator definition was almost exactly on point with how I am when it comes to conversations and the way I handle business. Great quiz.

    Nice, short test

  • Christopher Perez - August 06, 2015

    Mark, I always enjoy the insights gained from quizzes like this. This one pegged me as a Personal Communicator which seems pretty accurate. My only issue is that as an “ambivert” (See recent WSJ article here: https://www.evernote.com/l/AFfe4PIHxqNJcLzcJlU4K2V_fjjN5ui5a9g) I usually find myself struggling with which response to choose in different contexts. Please keep these coming!
