Everyone communicates differently, but do you know your basic style of communication? When you want to get your point across, how do you do it? Psychology has broken the way we interact down into four groups: verbal communicators, nonverbal communicators, written communicators, and visual communicators. As you go through the quiz, we will ask you questions designed to decipher the way you communicate best!

When you get angry at a friend, do you have a face-to-face argument, or do you prefer to write your thoughts out in a long email or message? The way you respond to our various scenarios during this quiz will reveal which of the four communication styles you utilize most naturally.
