Blues Don’t Hear So Good

Everyone is familiar with the saying that actions speak louder than words. For Blues that is especially true since they live life through feelings and intuition. Sure, everyone loves a little thank you note or small gift. But words aren’t one-tenth as powerful as the feeling of being appreciated, cared about, included, appreciated, and so much more.

In relationships, you can never tell your Blue partner often enough that you love them or give them a hug. When should you tell your partner that you love them? Before someone else does! Many high Greens share that they’re just not made that way, and it’s just not something they do very frequently. The great news is that we can all grow and learn – quickly!

But whether it’s at work or at home, the feelings of being cared about and appreciated are much more important than the words. What makes it more powerful and meaningful for Blues is the soft touch on the shoulder, the hug, and the eye contact when someone talks to them. Feeling valued, appreciated, loved, or included are way more valuable, powerful, and believable than words alone.

Beyond that, whether it’s at work or at home, a recent study found that 75% of women and even 73% of men wish their partner would share more of their feelings. I would bet that applies at work the same way: Whether you’re a leader, or with others on your team, your relationships will grow significantly if you just let others see more of the ‘real’ you.

    I just went through that emotional process this weekend. I did something special for my special someone and he didn’t acknowledge it. I was feeling pretty used. It wasn’t until I was upset that he took notice. Of course, today I sent him this page so he could read it and understand. Thank You.
