The style of communication an individual uses depends on a number of factors including their personality, the person they are communicating with, their mood, the circumstances and the location.
An example is the best way to describe what communication style means. Take a mother and daughter who have each written an article. The information and sentence structure is similar, but one will notice differences. The differences come from the education, their background, and their inherent behaviors. Style can also be affected by the person one is communicating with.
Foreign language is another good example. Many foreign languages have both formal and informal ways of communicating using different forms of words. When a person talks with an elder they do not know formal speech is required.

With family and friends, communication tends to be informal, yet there are still differences in how we communicate with family and friends. With friends we tend to be open and less formal, using jargon. With family there are times to be formal and informal. During the informal periods the relationship between family members will dictate how much is shared.
In academia, there is a distinct need for a formal communication style whether it is in writing or verbal. Academia requires one to be formal, clear, and concise in the communication to prevent any misunderstandings.
The personality of a person is still going to be the most dominant factor in their communication in both personal and formal communication, but it will be harder to see in the formal communication. The style most people conform to will attempt to mimic professional standards, yet the way the information is presented will speak to the person's own style thus being discernible as their work.
