How Well Do You Communicate?

Would you like to see what kind of communicator you are? And how effective you are likely to be? Will the results match what you think?

Our 3-Minute Communication Skills Test, like all our tests, has been thoroughly researched and carefully designed to assess aspects of how you communicate. Complete it and you can download an immediate and detailed report on the sort of mistakes you make – and how to fix them! It's free, it's anonymous, and it's fun and easy to do.

Here's a great way to test your skills:

  • Anonymous - if that's how you want it!
  • Takes just 3 minutes with 15 research-backed questions
  • AMAZINGLY accurate results
  • FREE personalised online report
  • Action Plan showing you how to IMPROVE!

We hope you find it as useful as thousands of others have done.

But this is important: you must answer these questions with what REALLY applies to you, not what you'd LIKE to be the case. Your report will be based solely on the answers you give, and no-one else needs to see it, so be completely truthful!

Instructions

Scroll down the page: there are 15 questions that will appear as you mouse over them: just click to select the answer for each.

Don't worry if any scenario doesn't apply directly to you, just imagine yourself in an equivalent situation.

And remember:

  • Don't over-think it
  • If none apply, pick the closest match
  • Be honest
Have fun and we hope you find it useful!
