IHS 21 – The story tellers

There are some people that love to tell stories. Actually what they love to do is communicate and this mostly happens through story telling though sometimes it happens through other means. The real talent of these people is their ability to communicate messages. I only wish I had more talent in this area!

This means that they are often aware of messages being communicated, whether it is in appearance, what people are wearing, how a stage looks, how a web page looks, or even what people are saying.

They often communicate their thinking processes. Thus they are often external processors – this means they need to talk through things in order to think through them. This is often relevant when they have had a new experience – they want to talk through the experience with someone. Sometimes this aspect can be misunderstood, particularly if the processing is interrupted and the story teller doesn’t get to finalise their thinking. Other people can assume what the teller has said is what they have decided, when in fact; they are still thinking through the issue.

Finally they are often extroverts. This means that they are energized by being around people, particularly when they capture their attention. Therefore they are often energized by getting up in front of groups of people and are often natural public speakers.

  1. Well said, Nate. Now, if I could just figure out how to make my knees stop knocking when I stand up in front of large crowds…

    Some of these are the church historians who bridge one generation to the next – without them next generation Christians would not appreciate the difficulties and struggles of the earlier generation Christians. The ladies in my church are completing our study of the book of Esther. I would identify Mordecai as a storyteller in his day, sitting at the gates of the city and taking necessary action to save his people through Queen Esther.
