From the Heart

November 6th, 2017

High Blues live life in their heart and through feelings. Blues also reach out to connect with people in ways that many not always seem obvious to others:

A couple of years ago, a high Blue friend needed to sign 7,000 fundraising letters as chairperson of a very large Christmas charity. Any Green would have found a software program that can pre-sign these letters, while Golds would want to add the personal signature, but get it done in one night and quickly off their to-do list. There’s a good chance an Orange would get a stamp, or ask the office staff to “just sign it for me.”

Not a high Blue. After a week, she proudly announced that a couple hundred letters were already signed. Another week later, 400 more were done and it seemed to be a never-ending project. But then I received my letter. The “Dear Mr. Boelcke” was crossed out and replaced by my first name, along with a personal note written on the bottom. Well of course it was – we’re friends. But then I asked this high Blue how many letters had a little personal note written on them? “All of them,” she replied. After all, it wasn’t just about signing the letters; it was about putting a little piece of her heart into every letter, with her personal touch.

Was this a waste of time, or an awesome Blue trait? No matter what you may thing, this is a real life example of a Blue. The next time a high Blue sends a card or special note you can be sure there is almost always a little something extra with it. It might be a sticker, something drawn on the envelope, an extra note, or something inserted. It is never just a card – it’s a high Blue connecting with you!
