EN_P: To communicate with me

EN_P: To communicate with me

By Donna Dunning

In my personality type based communication workshops I sometimes have participants complete this thought –“To communicate most effectively with me, please…” This exercise helps participants express their communication style and preferences.

I can’t take credit for this exercise. It is modified from one created by Jean Kummerow.

Here is a photo of a response from a group. Some people in the group have ENFP preferences and some have ENTP preferences.

They highlight their need to have face-to-face communications in which they can hear about the big picture and have a chance to share their opinions. As well, they seek and value transparency and honesty.

If you have a preference for Sensing, remember to overview your thoughts before jumping into the details. This helps the people who prefer Intuition to grasp the big picture so they can arrange and understand the facts in context.

For more tips on effective communication, see my newly revised booklet, Introduction to Myers-Briggs® Type and Communication – Second Edition.
