Communication throughout our lives plays a major role. Although the idea of communicating seems very simple we are often times communicating ineffectively with others. Communication basically comes down to the process of creating a shared meaning. If you have met someone who attends Globe University or works for Globe University you may have heard those individuals mention something about colors. Those colors being talked about involve the communication process.
As part of the Globe Education Network, individuals take a communication evaluation called Insights. The Insights evaluation is a 25 question test that breaks individual’s communication styles into four basic colors, Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue.
Each color has different characteristics and each individual has the ability to use these characteristics every day. However we have a tendency to use our “lead” color more often than not. To help those friends and family members better understand what these “colors” mean, I thought it would be a helpful idea to share some of these characteristics.
On a good day…
Individuals that lead with Yellow can be perceived as: sociable, dynamic, demonstrative, enthusiastic, and persuasive.
Individuals that lead with Red can be perceived as: competitive, demanding, determined, strong-willed, and purposeful.
Individuals that lead with Green can be perceived as: caring, encouraging, sharing, patient, and relaxed.
Individuals that lead with Blue can be perceived as: cautious, precise, deliberate, questioning, and formal.
Now you have a little bit of an idea of what the Insights colors are, do you have an idea what color you lead with?
