Communication styles table - morfizm


Jan. 8th, 2012 10:55 am Communication styles table

Not sure if I posted it before. The classification somewhat makes sense. I think I mostly behave as "analytical" and "driver" from this table. Recognized a lot of people in these descriptions, especially "expressers" and "relaters" :)
