Communicating with the Ideas Changemaker

Information and ideas are the playground of the Ideas Changemakers. For this personality, thinking is an activity, understanding is the goal and analysis is fun. The favorite communication scenario of the Ideas Changemakers would be the opportunity to explain a thought process she originated to an audience that is genuinely interested.

Any suggestion that your Ideas Changemaker friend, relative or co-worker may be wrong feels to him like a major affront. Reacting with a defensive posture, he may accuse you of not listening or understanding. And he may imply that you are disagreeing with him for the heck of it.

Entering into a debate with an Ideas Changemaker is not likely to help communication. Asking questions that encourage dialogue offers a much greater chance of facilitating thoughtful conversation and setting the stage for a relationship based on mutual consideration and respect.
