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

    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!

    If you’re having trouble finding time for your big goals, you’re not alone. We recently asked over 1,500 leaders: “Did you successfully complete your goals for today?” and provided three responses to choose from: “Yes,” “No,” and “I have no idea.” The most common response was “I have no idea.” The problem is that too many leaders aren’t sure what their goals really are.
