An inferential listener immediately takes action from what they have heard regardless of whether they were explicitly told to take action or not.
A direct listener must be explicitly told to take action, they will never infer it.
An inferential speaker assumes the implications of what they have said, the hints, are enough for the listener to understand what action must be taken.
A direct speaker says exactly what must be done.
An inferential speaker with a direct listener will go nowhere. Nothing has been communicated, nothing will happen. An inferential listener with an inferential speaker will be off in all directions. Lots of activity. But nothing will happen.
Safe bet - be direct - speak little, well.
