Communication is critical for most living organisms. Even animals have their own way of letting their fellows know when they are in heat or when there is danger nearby.

Humans have one up on the calendar kingdom where communication is concerned. For one thing, we have the power of speech, which is far from a common thing outside of mankind. You'd think being able to use words means that we would never have any misunderstandings, but that's far from the case.

Just because you know a bunch of words, that doesn't mean you know how to string them up into a sentence that accurately conveys what you want it to convey. And there are plenty of personality tests or personality quizzes that will show you how some people are just better communicators than others are, whether they know it or not.

If you're curious about just how well you communicate with the people in your life, you've definitely come to the right place. All you have to do is take this free personality test. 

This quick quiz is a visual personality test. In order to take it all you need is one minute of free time. To find out what kind of communicator you are, just look at the optical illusion below paying close attention to what you happen to see first.

Man's leg

If you saw the man's leg first, you're the kind of person who communicates directly. You have no trouble formulating your thoughts and feelings and sharing them with other people. That's awesome! It takes a lot to be able to get your point made clear, and you should be proud of who you are. 

But you should also understand that not everyone is you. Sometimes your direct and firm way doesn't leave quite enough room for the feelings of others, so be aware! 

Woman's leg 

If you saw the woman's leg first, you are the kind of person who thinks before they speak. Sometimes it takes you some time to find the right words to go with your feelings, and sometimes you might say things that contradict one another in your own efforts to sort out your thoughts and feelings. 

It's good to take time to work out your feelings but remember that sometimes silence can speak volumes and you have even less control over how that is interpreted. 

Both legs

If you saw both legs at once when you looked at this image, you're a person who doesn't usually think before you speak. You have strong opinions and you like to share them almost as quickly as they pop into your head.

This makes you fun and a great conversationalist! You're so smart and witty it's hard to keep up with you at times. But it doesn't hurt to take even one minute to think before speaking. Doing so can save you a lot of headaches later on down the road.
