We all have a dominant thinking style
How we send and receive information is very much based on how we think. When you consider how complex we are, it doesn’t take much to realize why even the simplest communication can be misunderstood. How you think affects how you do things. Understanding your communication style helps you send and receive the messages effectively.
Think like a RED
70 percent of people think in terms of chapters - a beginning, a middle, and end. They possess a balance between conceptual and logical thought processes with a dominant element of instinct. If a situation does not feel appropriate, a Red thinker will not make a decision or move from their position. A Red thinker is likely to freeze when confronted with conflict. Their senses become overloaded with stimuli and almost completely shut down their rational thought process.
Think like a YELLOW
10 percent of people are constantly collecting and connecting bits of information. Their thought process is similar to mind mapping as they are storing data in 'pods' for future use. Yellows are very comfortable with conceptual ideas and tend to be the ideas people in a group. Yellows have difficulty when too many detailed facts and figures are presented to them for immediate response. The best way to both speak and write to a Yellow is to keep it visual, animated and conversational.
Think like a GREEN
20 percent of people have extremely organized thought processes and are quite sequential in their thinking. They process information visually, picturing it in their mind. Greens have difficulty processing information when emotionally charged words are directed toward them. their natural ability to visualize words graphically becomes over stimulated. The best way to both speak and write to Green is to keep it brief, us e few words and be as specific as possible.
