Weaknesses of Each Communication Style

Empathizers

Empathizers back down from conflict to avoid appearing pushy or insensitive. You'll say whatever it takes for conflict to be over. You won't share hurt or angry feelings with those who cause them. Instead, vent frustration to others. They can give the impression of being all talk and no action. They may opt to tell "white lies" to avoid tense situations. They can be viewed as overly-dramatic. They can also be perceived as gossipy.

Energizers

Energizers are passionate and will show emotion and conviction for what they believe is fair and just. They must be happy in order to make others happy. They speak up loudly and quickly to let others know how they feel in situations of disagreement. They may say things out of haste and emotion that are mean or hurtful. They can be seen as self-centered and pushy when voicing personal dissatisfaction.

Contemplators

Contemplators choose to remove themselves from situations to alleviate conflict. They become unresponsive and unavailable in stressful situations to avoid unrest or disappointment. They're known to frustrate others with their lack of urgency to resolve conflict. They use time as a way to let difficult situations pass over. They're sometimes viewed as too conservative. They can be interpreted as snobby and indifferent.

Commanders

Commanders are determined and forceful in order to get their way. They feel justified in "pushing" for their cause. They look for ways to take control to ensure the outcome they desire. They're turned off by emotion in difficult situations and can seem as insensitive in their pursuit for a quick and efficient resolution to the conflict. They can be viewed as cold-hearted and selfish, as they stop at nothing to get their way.
