    I found the Quiz on what type of person I am interesting, and felt as though the result defined me thoroughly as being a ANALYTICAL Communicator. When making decisions emotions and using your gut feeling is important, but more important is information that’s accurate and on point. A person who’s an ANALYTICAL Communicator don’t make decisions based off emotions and their gut feelings in fact emotions can’t come into play. Having information that’s right on point leaves you with a gut feeling that everything will be okay and in result positive emotions will be displayed not a negative one.

    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

  • Rachel Stones - June 08, 2017

    Loved the quiz! I think it nailed the type of communicator I am. I appreciated the potential downside heads up as well.

  • Neha - January 30, 2017

    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.

  • Elaine Goodhart - July 21, 2016

    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.

  • Tony Waltos - April 13, 2016

    Fairly accurate assessment.

  • John Clark - March 17, 2016

    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!
