Personality Types & Communication Breakdown

We always hear that people have significant problems in their relationships because of a break down and/or lack of communication.

The biggest challenge is between the Blue Brainers and the Green Brainers.

Blue Brainer prefer to speak to someone in person, over the phone or possibly on Skype. They often become frustrated with Green Brainers who prefer not to talk on the phone, but are more comfortable typing an email, letting the voicemail answer a phone call or texting a message.

Green Brainers are the least communicative of all four Brain Colors and are the most misunderstood because they are the least talkative and not always comfortable sharing emotions.

Remember, as Kermit the frog says, “It is not easy being a Green.”

    I think my son is a GREEN brainer — he’s a “text only” kind of guy.

      So is our eldest son! Our yongest is the Blue Brainer who always calls! Knowing this helps us communicate and understand each other, instead of getting upset.
