How Can I Get Through to You?by D. Glenn Foster, Mary Marshall
These problems, that can trouble any
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" systemRead, Respond, and Reciprocateyou 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.
