y personal Communication
Part of the
Academic Strategies for the Communication Professional
class was to assess whattype of communication style the student possesses.
According to Patterson¶s chart, mycommunication style is that of Assertive. What this means is that I possess the type of communication where I
express my needs, wants and feelings directly and honestly. Don¶t assume you are correct or that everyone will feel the same way. Allow others to hold other viewswithout dismissing or insulting them.
After having reviewed this type of communication style,and the revelation of it, I have been very cognizant of how I communicate effectively andefficiently with other people; both, verbally and nonverbally.
y personal Values
The overall core value is Family. Without Family, all other values are without any pillar of strength. Why I say this is because our core values stem from our family. This carries over in our personal, romantic and professional lives. It is the foundation of all things. However, the more Ithink about it, the more the following come to mind in this exact order:1) Perseverance. This is the strongest value I have.2) Learning/Knowledge is not just something we garner through education, but through lifeexperiences and the many life lessons we find ourselves learning.3) Loyalty. The first thing, in my opinion, is that we have to be loyal to ourselves no matter what obstacles are facing.4) Authentic. Much like being true to ourselves, one value I have learned personally, and as awriter, is being authentic.
