The Auditory Personality Style

If you “speak” their language…
they are more likely “hear” what you are “saying” and become a customer or join you as a business partner.

Whether you are building a network marketing, MLM, direct sales or a conventional business it’s vital to understand who you are talking with and how they process information and make their decisions. When training my marketing team I strongly recommend that they learn and apply this powerful information if they are serious about building their business.

Post 1 of 4, in this series, covered the “Visual” style. In Post 2 of 4 we discussed the “Auditory-digital” style. I am sure you noticed how different they process information and how diverse they are in many ways. In this post we will talk about the “Auditory Style.”

What motivates them? They want to have a business that is FUN. They enjoy attending events with a lot of “fun” activities.

When talking with an auditory personality allow them to talk yet gently guide the direction of the conversation because they tend to veer off the subject. Pay attention to them. Speed up the conversation pace because they talk and move faster than the visual and auditory-digital styles. Keep an upbeat and fun pace. Support their dreams. Ask them for their opinions. BEWARE: Don’t overwhelm them with too much detail. They don’t want too many specifics… just the overall picture.

Each of us has a mix of all four personality styles although have one that we prefer and operate in most of the time. When we learn to recognize other styles we can relate better to them by adapting our style. In other words, if you love facts, figures and details realize that everyone does not want to know them. Others may just want to hear about the overall picture and not the details. Details will turn them off. On the other hand, if you are of the auditory style and you are talking with some who loves details (auditory-digital style) you will want to have some details you can refer them to, such as reports, studies, etc.

So, when we learn to exercise all four of our styles we will be able to adapt and relate better to others of different styles.
