Who Can Read Minds???

Anyone who is around 50 years old...(ouch!!!!) may possibly remember the "Tammy" movie...with Doris Day and Rock Hudson. In this movie Tammy is soooooo in love and at one point she sings this song that says, "I wish that I knew if he knew what I'm dreaming of"....and then it goes on to say...."Tammy's in LOVE." Well, that part of the line is not relevant to this post. lol Anyway, the point is, we really can't read another person's mind....but, we can be given "tools" that help us to "read" their personality. If we can figure out another's "personality", or "Behavioural Pattern", then we can almost begin to know what another person is thinking...and how he/she will react in various situations.

We call this technique: Using "Visible" Clues to help us identify what a person's dominate personality style is. Simply by observing how a person dresses: are they stylish, traditional, tailored, or casual. How do they interact with others? Are they the "Tell it all" type, or are they quiet and reserved, or maybe, they are the kind who "know it all" in every conversation, or maybe, they simply just observe and say nothing, but smile inwardly at all that is going on around them.

Whatever the personality one is, there is a "perferred" way of communicating. If you learn to communicate with a person on their "elevator" floor, you'll be amazed at how much more harmonious your relationships, whether personal or professional . So take the time to do a little research. Learn about your own Personality Communication Style and then learn to communicate with others according to their Communication Styles.
