INTP Communication Highlights

INTP Communication Highlights

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningIn 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 personal 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 an individual with INTP preferences.

This person prefers conversations to flow in an open, flexible way. When talking to INTPs, be playful, exploratory, and stimulate their thinking.

As this individual suggests, don’t try to direct them or ask them the, “How are you feeling?” question.
