Discussion 1: Week 1
Collaborative meaning making focuses on how communication is translated between two people. According to the book, “Bridges Not Walls” by John Stewart, collaborative meaning making “begins when a sender gets a idea that he or she wants to communicate” (Stewart 2012). From there, the message is translated into words and depending on how the message is received, the words can be a successful conversation or miscommunicated. “When an idea is the same as another idea, the communication is successful. When the two ideas don’t match, there’s a miscommunication thats somebody’s fault”. (Stewart 2012).
People’s personalities and and behavior blends might influence collaborative meaning making, as well as how other effectively communicate. According to the DISC personality test, there are 4 personality traits; active/outgoing, task-oriented, people oriented, and passive/reserved. According to the author Mels Carbonell, “We usually struggle with people because of the way they say or do things. Our personalities often influence our actions and words. By understanding not only our own but others’ personality patterns, we should be able to improve our people- problems. (Carbonell 2008).
My personality/behavioral blend is between active task oriented and people task oriented. Being a active task oriented person sometimes causes me to be known as a very direct and blunt person. With this type of communication skills, it is important for me to really listen to others while I am engaging in conversation, as well as making sure I am not interrupting. On the other end, I can also be very social and friendly, which usually causes me to be very optimistic about a lot of things. Personally, I feel as though I can relate to different groups of people, but might have a huge challenge of communicating with others.

People are comprised of a certain one of a kind attributes and qualities that make all of us unique and outstanding. There are four distinct classes of conduct, as sketched out in the Disk Model of Human Behavior (Carbonell, 2008). All individuals fall into an assortment of types, making up a conduct mix of characteristics that are exceptions to that individual. After addressing the inquiries of the Uniquely You character profile, I discovered that my character type falls under the I type in the “expected of me” and the S/I in “this is me” segments (Uniquely You, 2017). As an “I,” I am more influenced, inspiring, entertaining, interested in people, inducing, and impressing. I like to stand out and be famous. This personality is often described as the best type, but can also be the most prideful and egotistical. “I” people love to talk and affect people with their multitude of words and stories. As a high “I / S” or “S / I” personality type, I am very people-oriented. I am more comfortable with people than working on tasks by myself. People find I am very friendly. I am both outgoing and reserved. I can either stand out in a crowd or blend well in a small group. I tend to be active and passive. I can be energetic and expressive, as well as quiet and shy. I can be very inspiring, influencing, and impulsive in a crowd of people. Alternatively, I can be submissive, soft, and sensitive, either one-on-one or with a small group. I am consistently more relational than tactical or technical (Uniquely You, 2017).
When looking at the self-assessment of my communication skills, results, one thing stands out the most. My ability to understand people. I had an insightful score of 100 and 86 in listing skills, which helped boost my overall rating to a 69 classifying me a “good communicator.” My lowest score was dealing with emotion. This is my weakest section do to my lack of ability to express my feelings to others about how sure thing makes me feel. I honestly feel like my results are very reflective of how I am as a person. I enjoyed the assignment and getting to understand myself further. It allows me to know areas to improve in as well as my strengths.
