This study utilizes neuro-technology to measure the clients’ psychophysiological status by comparing two types of communication methods, written communication and verbal communication. Specifically, the electroencephalography (EEG) measures clients’ responses to each communication method. In other words, this study will investigate how clients react to two types of communications by employing quantitative EEG signal analysis. The results of this study will have implications for the methods used to obtain sensitive information from clients. The results of this study have important implications for financial planners and advisors, suggesting that professionals should be more careful when asking clients sensitive questions. The written communication contained more questions, and the questions were more sensitive and complicated than those given in the oral communication. Further analysis with brain waves (alpha, beta, theta, and gamma) will come if the study is accepted to AFS conference.
