No matter how you communicate, you must learn how it’s being perceived by others.
In order to communicate, you must learn how you communicate.
Whether you are soft-spoken or outspoken, you speak a certain “language” of fascination.
When I say “language,” I’m not talking about English or Portuguese. I’m referring to all of your verbal and nonverbal signals that shape how the world sees you.
If you have the Passion Advantage, you speak the language of relationship. You make a lot of eye contact; you choose highly descriptive words and phrases with expressive inflection.
If you have the Mystique Advantage, on the other hand, you speak a different language. You speak the language of listening. Unlike a Passion personality, who can sometimes “over communicate,” you are seen as someone who carefully thinks before speaking so that you can get the facts right the first time.
When you understand which of these languages comes most naturally to you, you can see how your communication is being heard by others.
You are the guardian of your message.
If you believe that you have a message worth listening to, then you have a responsibility to get your message out into the world.
That’s true whether you are delivering a newsletter or a church sermon. It’s true whether you are an account executive or a company president. You are the guardian of your message. Even if you are shy or reluctant, it’s your duty to help your important message be heard.
Knowing in what “language” you communicate, and understanding what “language” those around you are speaking, will get your message out there, and improve your communication in each part of your life.
When you, your friends, family and colleagues take the Fascination Advantage® Assessment you will each learn your Primary Advantage, and unlock your own most valuable way of communicating.

This doesn't make much sense. I am innovation/prestige. I am guessing the language of creativity. However, I've been given the language of passion. My people skills are sometimes challenged being innovation and creative! I am passionate - don't get me wrong!
Authenticity is powerful stuff. Having the 'permission' to speak the language of 'Passion/Innovation' over the last six months (along with developing my personal 'anthem'), has transformed the way I communicate with clients and measurably improved my business. Thanks Sally.
This must be another amazing & revealing test coming from you! I so look forward to completing the next step when I return from Scotland.
I speak with the language of excellence. This system has nailed me so well. I am eager to be more ME!
I moved from a compliance team that was full of TRUST and alert staff....and me, the line MYSTIQUE. Funny how we were all introverts.
Sally, your work has helped me profoundly. I always knew I was more than different, that I wasn't acting contrary just to be difficult; I was wired in a way that stood apart from most of the people around me. Speaking the language of listening is an such an apt description. I credit taking your test and the eye-opening results I received with really helping me to see how to build a business that allowed me to share my strengths. This is not just another personality test!
The description my language - Mystique - was spot on. Whether handling delicate HR issues or irate customers, the language of listening is critical.
I guess I'm in the same boat as Veronika, listening yet overcommunicating sometimes.
I find it funny how passion and mystique are always used as "opposites". This is why I've been feeling so confused about my communication ever since I can remember. Because I'm mystique +passion. I find this archetype quite difficult to navigate sometimes. 😉
This is amazing. Learning this is key to maximizing your potential reach. Can't wait to take the test!
