Characters: Exploring Communicative Style

A Dadaist-style image representing a character's communicative style with soft colors. The background features an abstract, whimsical scene with elements symbolizing various communicative styles such as assertive, passive, and expressive. Icons like speech bubbles, abstract faces, and symbolic gestures are creatively integrated into the composition. The central figure is depicted in a dynamic, surreal manner, interacting with these symbols in a way that captures the diversity of communication. The overall aesthetic is unconventional and thought-provoking, with soft, pastel tones adding a gentle touch to the Dadaist elements.


A character's communicative style is essential in defining how they express their ideas, emotions, and intentions. This characteristic profoundly affects the character's interactions with others and can vary widely, from the direct communicator to the indirect communicator. Communicative style can reveal much about the character's personality and intentions.

This characteristic can be combined with others such as personality and emotional intelligence to create authentic and believable characters. In addition, different forms of communication can generate misunderstandings and conflicts, enriching the plot.
