What's your communication personality?

Monday Q of the Wk. Here’s how it works: Each Monday I ask a thought provoking question about life.  Pose the same question to your blog readers on your own blog along with your answer to the question.  Then come back here and post a comment with a link to your blog post so we can all read everyone’s answers!  It’s been a lot of fun getting to know my readers and their readers and so on and so on… This week’s question: What's your communication personality? JoJo’s Answer:
I wrote an article several years ago called What's Your Communication Personality?  In it I outline nine different types of communicators: Gabby Gloria, Shy Sheila, Bold Betty, Careful Carla, Amiable Annie, Analytical Andrea, Dynamic Darla, Negative Nelly and Positive Polly.  Understanding your communication personality can help you relate better with others.  Understanding how other communication personalities function can allow you to communicate more effectively with them.
Most people are some combination but primarily one distinct communication personality.  I am a combination of Gabby Gloria and Dynamic Darla with a little Bold Betty tempered by Careful Carla.  I love to chat and tell a good story and sometimes I am quite direct, but I try very hard to temper my exuberance carefully so that I don't intimidate or offend.
What is your communication personality? Post your answers on your blog and come back here and put your link in so we can read it!  If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers here. Learning Communication skills can also be fun with Art of Eloquence.com!

    Wow – good question. I think I"d have to say I’m a combination of Careful Carla and Amiable Annie.
