Would you say you are a better verbal or written communicator?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I prefer verbal communication because I feel that with written communication, wires can be crossed, due to lack of tone, fluctuation, expression and body language. I will always choose a face to face conversation whenever possible."
Example #2
"I do not lean one way or the other when it comes to verbal or written communication. Both are equally important to me. If I have to choose just one, I will choose written communication as one can always look back on written communication for reference."
Example #3
"I like to leverage both methods of communication when dealing with business. Sometimes, situations call for verbal communications and other times, written. As a rule of thumb, I tend to practice verbal communications, with written follow up or vice versa. Utilizing multiple methods creates repetition and therefore, change."
Example #4
"I am comfortable with both so it would depend on the message, I suppose. Big news needs to be communicated verbally and followed up in written form, but quick messages or simple changes can be communicated effectively through email without the hassle of breaking away from work for a call or meeting."
Example #5
"I am a better verbal communicator. I spend the bulk of my day speaking with customers and training my staff on new sales, policies, or products. I can certainly communicate well in written form, also."
Example #6
"As a salesperson, I am skilled in both written and verbal forms of communication, but I prefer verbal. I am a great conversationalist and close most of my sales in person or over the phone."
Example #7
"I would say that I am a better verbal communicator simply because I spend most of my day communicating in that method. I can certainly communicate well in written form; however, I do have more experience communicating verbally."
Example #8
"I prefer verbal communication because I feel that with written communication, a lot can be misread due to lack of tone, fluctuation, expression and body language. I will always choose a face to face conversation whenever possible."
Example #9
"I prefer verbal communication because I feel that with written communication, a lot can be misread due to lack of tone, fluctuation, expression and body language. I will always choose a face to face or phone conversation whenever possible."
Example #10
"I am comfortable with both so it would depend on the message, I suppose. Big news needs to be communicated verbally and followed up in the written form. However, quick messages or simple changes can be communicated effectively through email without the hassle of breaking away from work for a call or meeting."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
