The CommunicationWheel® is a practical system for using psychological type to improve communication. A key feature of this system is an easy to understand model that visually represents the 16 MBTI® types and their relationship to each other. You can actually see why communication problems exist and what to do about them.
As a training aid, The CommunicationWheel® is used to explain and reinforce basic type theory. Names of group or team members can be displayed on the “wheel” to indicate type relationships and potential communication problems. Counselors, educators, families and business leaders alike can benefit from this simple and direct approach. For the advanced type practitioner, it serves as a model for developing the less preferred functions.
In the early eighties, Henry L. (Dick) Thompson, Ph.D., used psychological type theory to improve teamwork. An in-depth study of type research combined with experience revealed the need for a simpler way to explain how type affects communication. As a result, Dr. Thompson developed The CommunicationWheel® system as a more effective method for dealing with communication issues. His work has helped to bring together differing perspectives on type and communication by refocusing on application. Since then, The CommunicationWheel® has proven to be a powerful tool in both private and business settings.
