I am looking to for a word that describes a person who often seeks to relate to others. He looks to include outsiders into groups and is able to adjust speech depending on who he is talking to.

    With what motive? Such a person could be friendly, considerate, manipulative, polite, for example. – FumbleFingers Oct 25 '15 at 21:55
  • Someone who is able to relate to widely different types of people, I would describe as democratic. But that may be a partly of my own coinage. Others may have different ways of saying it. – WS2 Oct 25 '15 at 22:46
  • 'describes a person' could mean that you want a noun or an adjective. Please can you say which you are asking for? Thanks. – chasly from UK Oct 25 '15 at 23:43

Cordial may fit.

Definition: courteous and gracious; friendly; warm; easy to talk to.

Synonym: affable


How about welcoming as the adjective?

  • Welcome to ELU. Can you provide some more details to support your suggestion - perhaps a cited definition, or a reputable example of it being used in a relevant way? – JHCL Oct 25 '15 at 22:41
