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.
In September a few 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 them for me.”
Not a high Blue. After the first 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 her how many of the letters had a little personal note added? “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, or even a personal e-mail – it’s a high Blue connecting with you!
