Communication and Relationships
The one thing I’ve learned about marriage is the importance of knowing my husbands communication style. My husband is direct and to the point. I explain things in detail. My husband can also talk a lot given the right subject. The above TEDxQueenstown (Ted Talk) video describes different communication styles and how they can influence our relationships. While watching the video, which communication style did you assign yourself: purple, red, yellow, or blue? Think about your family and friends. Are there any individuals you find yourself in conflict with often? What’s their communication style? Why do you think our communication styles can deteriorate a relationship? How can understanding communication styles help build our relationships? This discussion should be fun to read once everyone submits their response.
Note: Turn on the captions for the video.

This Ted Talk is one that should be watched by everyone. How we communicate with each other truly makes or breaks our relationships. I am a mixture of the red and blue dots because I am very direct and to the point, but I am also emotional and like to process things on an intuitive level. I conflict with my mother almost every day because she is the epitome of a purple dot. She is very loud and talkative all the time and does not take the time to listen to anyone. Our communication styles are completely different and due to me being an emotional person and her being overbearing, it has ruined our relationship. Understanding that our styles are different and trying to accommodate each person’s individuality would make relationships around the world better.

I believe that I am a blue dot. As Amy Scott said, I am more of a hands on person and I like to just get things done. I usually take the information in I may ask a few questions but the job will be done. My dad is more like me. He is a very quiet man but works hard and do what he has to do to get everything done. My mom, sister, and my grandma are red dots. They want to get everything done but they are very controlling wile doing the task. The want it done their way or no way. I don’t really conflict with anyone in my family because, we all are use to one another and how we work.
