Test - Competency for effective communication

Are you communicative ?

Of course it would be so nice if we always could come to terms with those about us and our surroundings, but it does not happen that way. Sometimes we are doing better on this account, on other occasions it is not so good, and sometimes it is a complete failure. That is life. Your results do not represent a scientific finding; however they should help you get to know yourself better, and perhaps even make you think about what you could do to improve things. One of the ways, no doubt, would be to get trained by us.

Please read each of the following statements carefully, and select the valuation that describes you best. Be as frank to yourself as you can so that you can really learn from the results.
