Quiz: 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.
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.
Your communication style is generally accommodating

Accommodating communication shows low concern for self and high concern for the other (opposite of the aggressive style). You neglect your own concerns in order to satisfy the other person. The interaction ends up being a lose/win situation where you sacrifice your own interests, wants, and feelings for those of the other person. Accommodating communication may look like yielding too much to the other person’s point of view even when you disagree, allowing others to make choices and decisions for you. You hesitate to speak, or speak softly, and try to avoid discussion about the real issue. You may never achieve your goals in any interaction and may end up feeling resented, frustrated or even angry.
Your communication style is generally collaborative

Collaborative communication shows high concern for self and high concern for the other (opposite of the avoiding style). You pursue your own interests and concerns while at the same time interested in the other person’s interests and concerns. The interaction is usually viewed as a win/win situation because everybody gets what they want. In collaborative communication, you openly express personal feelings, wants, concerns and needs while seeking those of the other person. You look for mutual understanding. You respond spontaneously rather than interrupting or hesitating, you speak in a conversational tone rather than loud or soft; you address and stay focused on the real issues rather than talking past or avoiding them. You also ask for the other person’s input and collaboration to the communication. You are most likely to achieve your goals; will feel good about yourself and about the exchange; may feel in control and confident of your abilities to handle any situation while making the other person feel self-affirmed, free to express opinions, wants, and needs, and are likely to develop a good relationship.
