Persons of any race, personality, background or gender utilize an assortment of speech and conversational skills in an attempt to communicate appropriately in a specific situation. However, as communication is studied, it is shown that the means people use to communicate not only differ with the language that they use and the cultural meanings assigned to specific movements but is also divided between genders. The communication gap continues to close as the gap in true equality for women closes, yet there remains a significant difference between the fundamental communication styles employed by women as compared to men on both a verbal and nonverbal plane. A talkative person is perceived as controlling and domineering. In the workplace, these personality types are viewed as leaders but only if other qualities are present such as intellect and problem-solving skills. They are most likely a well-liked and respected individual if they are a man. The reason may lie in the fact that anyone that uses ‘powerful language’ is thought to be competent, trustworthy and intelligent. A person’s gender does influence their speech patterns whether by forces of nurture or nature. Because strong personality types are commonly associated with males, people expect them to fill an authoritative role such as judge, CEO of a corporation or police officer. It is possible that most males are born with a more aggressive personality but this is significantly augmented by the socialization process, even down to the types and forms of the language used. Parents and others respond favorably toward aggressive behavior demonstrated in boys. The combination of inherited and learned behavioral and personality traits become deeply embedded parts of a communication blueprint that endures throughout a lifetime.Men who behave as expected within the Western culture will be somewhat aggressive and interested in at least one of three specific subjects: sports, business or politics.
