The four Negotiation Types are brought to you by the minds behind CQ: Communication Quotient(™). Based on psychology, neuroscience and communication research, our test assesses your habits and tendencies - how you think, your internal monologue and how you act - to help you better understand who you are and how you communicate with the world around you.

Remember, the five Negotiator Types aren’t black and white. While there is probably one type that best describes your style, you may change at different points in your life, or even throughout your day! Ultimately, negotiation is a central part of communication and plays a vital role in fostering effective exchanges leading to long term relationships. So think of these as useful frameworks that can help point you in the right direction towards achieving agile, focused and smarter interactions, powering your unique potential.
