The Communication Styles Inventory (CSI) – A Six-Dimensional Behavioral Model of Communication Styles and Its Relation With Personality

In this study, the authors reported a six-dimensional model of communication styles using the Communication Styles Inventory (CSI). The CSI distinguishes between six domain-level communicative behavior scales, Expressiveness, Preciseness, Verbal Aggressiveness, Questioningness, Emotionality, and Impression Manipulativeness. The authors reported the CSI scales showed medium to high levels of convergent validity with lexical communication marker scales and behavior-oriented communication scales.
