Overview

Does your husband always seem to miss the point of what you're saying? Do you feel that your wife never listens when you're trying to say something important? Does your boyfriend have irritating habits he refuses to change, despite your constant requests? Do the two of you have the same arguments over and over again?

These problems, that can trouble any relationship, are not just the result of gender difference. More important than gender are the different styles of communication that tend to take over in stressful situations. These styles correspond with four major roles: Feeler, Analyzer, Driver, and Elitist. How Can I Get Through to You? offers practical and effective methods to diagnose your own style and your partner's, and then work to solve communication problems, making you both feel better and feel heard.

How Can I Get Through to You? is based on a system designed by professional communication experts D. Glenn Foster and Mary Marshall. This system was developed out of Foster's overwhelmingly successful interview technique, which is professionally regarded as one of the best methods of communicating and interacting with people, and getting them to reveal their essential nature.

By using Foster and Marshall's "3R" system—Read, Respond, and Reciprocate—you will learn to determine if a person is a Feeler, a Driver, an Analyzer, or an Elitist. You will then learn to use your understanding of these four types to reach the truth of a person's reality, enabling an intense rapport. In short, you will learn how to get through to anyone.

How Can I Get Through to You? will teach you how to identify your type and that of the person you love, and how to pinpoint the areas of stress between the two types. Learn how to read what people really mean. Learn how specific moods affect each personality type. Learn how the "triggers" to our personality types determine how we act. Learn how to satisfy another person's deepest desires, enabling you to achieve mutual understanding.

How Can I Get Through to You? teaches us how to understand, celebrate, and use the differences between ourselves and our loved ones to sustain and deepen mutually nurturing relationships.

About the Authors:

D. Glenn Foster is a well-known interview consultant who instructs the FBI, the U.S. State Department, and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms in professional interview techniques. He has also lectured to professional bodies of judges, trial attorneys, psychiatrists, and psychologists. As the originator of the Foster Method—which is in constant use professionally and is now adapted for mainstream use—he is in demand by federal, state, and local agencies to conduct interviews in major criminal and civil cases throughout the U.S. He lives in Atlanta.

Mary Marshall is an attorney with an extensive background in family and matrimonial law. She has been instrumental in broadening the Foster method into the field of interpersonal relations and is currently working on its application in situations of domestic violence and how people deceive each other. She lives in Barto, Pennsylvania.
