What’s My Communication Style? Theory

What’s My Communication Style?-Third Edition and the other titles in the HRDQ Style Series are based on the well-known research and personality theories of psychologists Carl Jung, William Moulton Marston, and others. Most research has identified two basic dimensions of style, which we refer to as assertiveness and expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others.

Psychological Type Indicator (PTI)

A carefully crafted personality measure designed to give individuals guidance about their psychological (Jungian) type using the sixteen types (INTJ, ENTP, etc.) first presented by Carl Jung. The focus is on providing individuals themselves, their managers and those who train them, with an understanding of personality and its effect on performance both inside and beyond the workplace.

Interpersonal Influence Inventory

Developed to help individuals assess their interpersonal influence style. The model upon which the inventory statements are based is an assertive behaviour model. This model suggests that 2 sets of behaviours create 4 behavioural mixes. One set of behaviour is related to an individual’s degree of openness or candor. Another set of behaviours is related to an individual’s degree of consideration for another or others. ALSO ONLINE*.
