You have a passion for connecting with people and reaching new levels of understanding. You are an influencer; you engage others and build alliances easily. People are drawn to your friendly nature and find it easy to open up to you. You bring visions and big themes to life through your gift of language, and you have the ability to reframe difficult situations. You can craft a metaphor for any situation, putting abstract concepts into words in a way that makes others feel deeply understood. 

Your ability to listen closely and your desire to ensure that everyone is heard make you an excellent leader, as you create unity and a harmonious flow of ideas within your team. You are a natural networker and facilitate healthy, productive discussions with your talent for finding the common ground. You touch and inspire people; you know how to appeal to others and get the best out of them, and this is especially powerful in the space of change. 

Your superpower is not actually mind reading, but for those who experience your ability to understand what they are trying to say even when they cannot find the words, it can sometimes feel that way. You are a great listener who hears not only what is being said, but what is not being said. You empower those around you to speak up.

Your Core Beliefs:

As a communicator, you know that your words carry a great deal of power and you can use them to uplift those around you. You know that communication is the foundation upon which the human experience is built, and that good communication and the ability to listen closely are two of the most important skills to have. Communication for you is a chance to establish a deeper connection and reach greater understanding, so you feel responsible for getting everyone involved and speaking up.

You fear being misunderstood, dishonesty, and conflict. Fear is a healthy emotion that alerts us when it is time to get prepared. Fear alerts us to the fact that something needs assessing. When you live in the space of fear it can become paralyzing and confusing. The feelings of anxiety and overwhelm can present themselves as guarded and tense. The opportunity is to embrace the fear as your friend. Shift the shallow breath to a deep breath and ask yourself, “Is this fear justified?” If so, “What do you need to prepare for?” It is also an opportunity to shift your story. Are you telling the story of understanding vs mindreading, quality vs quantity, or honesty vs bluntness?


So, before you read the shadow side, I invite you to see this as an opportunity for growth. As a communicator, you are naturally inclined to search for subtext, so your inner critic can sometimes unfairly manipulate feedback into unwarranted criticism. Your intentions are pure, yet they can create discord in your collaboration.

When the communicator is not serving you to be your best, you may find yourself overwhelmed by too much information. Others are able to open up to you easily and you genuinely want to help them, so you feel responsible for fixing things and understanding what is going on. When you are receiving too much information all at once, your thoughts can become disorganized. This can make it nearly impossible to think through any of the issues clearly. 

You are a naturally intuitive person who tends to hear and understand thoughts and feelings that have not been voiced. This is a powerful asset to your team as you make people feel seen and heard, and it can be difficult to turn this off. It is important to remember that not everyone wants to be read like a book. Though your gifts enrich the lives of those around you, it is important to recognize when someone is not ready to share what is on their mind. It is sometimes best to give others space to come to you when they are ready to do so rather than always going to them.

Your words are your strength; while they can do a lot of good, they can also unintentionally cause harm. You value open communication and speak your thoughts freely, so when the communicator is not serving to its highest potential, you may be too open in your criticism. Words come easily to you and if you are being too blunt, your words can become instruments of harm rather than the tools of encouragement that you mean them to be. 

Life is not always easy for the communicator. You can get buried in the information that people give to you so willingly, and it can be exhausting to use up so much of your energy on others. It can be frustrating for someone who speaks their mind so easily to interact with others who do not, and it can be difficult or even hurtful when your efforts to understand are not met with enthusiasm. You feel responsible for elevating others and making the world a better place, and that is a heavy burden.

Communicators make good public speakers, networkers, writers, and ministers.
