Who am I as a Communicator

Standard

This week we were tasked to inventory ourselves using a variety of communication assessments as well as have two others assess us on the same areas in communcation. One insight that surprised me is with the verbal aggressiveness scale. My self- assessment showed that I had a  significant level of aggressiveness. I felt that I must have answered the questions based on how I felt not on what I actually do. This thinking was confirmed when my colleague and sister returned their assessments. I was at a moderate level according to my colleague and at a low level according to my sister. Another insight was how my colleague and sister rated me as having low communication anxiety. I am very nervous when speaking in groups but that nervousness is not picked up by others which is good. This assignment was helpful in making me aware of who I am as a communicator and picking out areas of improvement.
