What’s your communication style?

Your communication style is generally aggressive.

 

Aggressive communication shows a high concern for self and low concern for the other. You pursue your own concerns, at the other person’s expenses. The interaction becomes a win/lose situation and your goal is to win over the other person.

Aggressive communication may look like interrupting others, talking past the real issue, speaking loud, using blame or harsh words, and judgmental statements.

Aggressive communication usually succeeds, however, this comes to the expense of the other person. You may end up feeling guilty after your interaction and the other person may have hurt feelings, feel put down, humiliated, or dismissed, or even scared of you. It is usually not good for the relationship.
