What’s your communication style?

Your communication style is generally avoiding.

 

Avoiding communication shows low concern for the self and low concern for the other. You pursue neither our own concern nor those of the other person. The interaction becomes a lose-lose situation where neither person gets what they want.

Avoiding communication may look like sidestepping an issue, withdrawing from a difficult situation, or agreeing to meet the other person’s request knowing you will not fulfill the request. You hesitate to speak, or speak softly, and try to avoid discussion at all costs.

You may never achieve your goals in any interaction and may end up feeling resented, frustrated or even angry.
