hi I recently received feedback in my review that I am too blunt/direct and that I should use 5 words when I want to use 2. I also had an internal interview feedback which was excellent with the exception that I asked the interviewer to repeat the question in a blunt way??? Although I understand the need to deliver a message with both honesty and emotional integrity for others I am struggling to accept this feedback. I can’t help thinking you’d never get anything done and spend too much time flowering things up!!! I believe ‘flowering’ (excluding above example) for me comes across as dishonest as people avoid providing honest, clear feedback. I have always seen my direct, honest approach as refreshing and right. I have always believed this is what has enabled fast progress. I now think although it is progressing the task it is not helping my career. I am clearly a strong ENTJ woman so struggling to change such a core trait. Any suggestions that I can employ.
