What kind of a communicator are you?
While some people are good at communicating using the power of words, others are not. Humans use words, gestures, symbols and body language to communicate with one another. But how does one find out if they are a good communicator?
Here's a fun test: the first thing that strikes your eye when you look at this illustration will reveal your skills.
Originally created in 1975 by late Japanese artist Shigeo Fukuda, the black-and-white graphic appears to show a row of legs, both male and female. Now, wondering what this says about you?
If you spotted the man's legs first, then you are someone who has no problem with communication. You are someone who prefers to get things out directly, rather than beating around the bush. You know how to express your feelings and share them with others, and that is something that people appreciate about you.
However, not everyone is okay with someone being blunt and to the point, so it's always better to be a bit careful before you say something that could offend people.
If you spotted the heels first, you are someone who believes in thinking before they speak, since it's always better to be safe than sorry. In some cases, you seem to take a while to find the right words to express your feelings, and occasionally, in your own efforts to organize your ideas and feelings, you may say things that are in conflict with one another.
While it is always great to pause before talking, some might mistake your silence for something that you didn't mean.
If you saw both legs at once, then, needless to say, you have a mix of both types of communicators in you. While you are someone that is not afraid to speak your mind, you always tend to exercise some caution because you know not everyone may take it in that sense. However, you are a great conversationalist because some great and witty comments have come from you. You really do have a gift to engage people in your conversation and that is something special!
So, which one did you notice first?
