UNDERSTANDING YOUR SCORE
Part 2 - Miscommunication Insights
This graph shows the areas that you need to become more flexible in. For example, if the graph shows a higher concentration in the purple section, then you may have a difficult time in relating to people with a purple orientation. You may be misinterpreting their communication based on the color of your own glasses. The following general explanations give an outline of how some colors may be misunderstood. Further insights and direct color relationships are discovered through Directive Communication seminars. See www.carmazzi.net orwww.directivecommunication.com for more details.
THE RED BRAIN
Because of their strong sense of structure, communicating with Red brain people can sometimes be challenging because others may perceive them as inflexible. They may also appear to be insensitive because of their emotional non-expressiveness and their ability to remain detached. If they see no value or any real risk in change, they will resist it strongly, but not before taking time to analyze it thoroughly. Learning is also reflected by these selective traits, but in relation to their own beliefs and principles. Their analytical and objective nature determines their acceptance of new concepts or ideas.
THE GREEN BRAIN
Communicating with Green brain people can be challenging to some because they don’t pay much attention to detail, and while they are good communicators, they are often too general in their explanations. Also, because they tend to try to solve problems quickly and move on, others may perceive them as impatient. Since ideas are always in movement, the green brain process of shaping and reshaping ideas, as new information is received, may give others the perception of them being erratic or even fickle. Because they are always expressing their ideas with passion, some may feel that green brains are “pushing” their views as the “only” way, when in fact they are usually just putting them out to stir up feedback because of their inclination for interaction.
THE PURPLE BRAIN
Purple brain are commonly misunderstood because they usually take much longer to act or make decisions. Since they require so much information, processing time is considerably longer (they may appear to be doing nothing when in reality they are gathering necessary information to be thorough). Their meticulous attention to detail may be perceived as Too Much in some instances. Some may consider purple brain as insensitive because they will often not speak unless they feel it is necessary, and seldom express their feelings. They will often show their caring by creating smooth operational systems in life and work.
THE BLUE BRAIN
Blue brain are sometimes misunderstood because they will often take things personally. This comes from the difficulty in separating their own feelings from others and their sensitivity to the feelings of others. They are also more prone to talk about things that bother them, but NOT to get solutions as much as to just get someone to listen to them. Others may also have a difficult time relating to their nature of openly sharing feelings, and may interpret it as complaining or nagging. Misinterpretations can also occur because of the blue brain nature of “being nice”; this can be seen by some as insincere or sometimes as weakness.
