The Graceful Giraffe meets the Type E Personality

While reading Margaret Rome's Blog about Surviving Your Serengeti, I came another Quiz to take,  the Type E Quiz.
I love taking Quizzes so without further ado off I went. I found myself with a score of 26 which was in the range for a Type E. Is that good or bad, I wondered. With further investigation, I found I was a Type E Translator as far as scoring went.

It was nice to find out I one of the "traits" was the "ability to take lofty visions and bring them down to earth" ~ which makes me "invaluable and scarce resource". I am also "essential for creating a balanced and successful work environment"

Now a very important trait that I will point out to my Business Partner and Husband for almost 35 years (March 7,1976)

"Type E Translators appear to be quite RARE". "If you have one in your group, do whatever it takes to keep them happy, content and well fed" 

EUREKA 

I knew I had the perfect match, Frank strives to keep me happy, content and well fed. Well, not well fed lately, we have changed our eating habits and exercise habits but I'm not starving.

I love to find things out about myself and truly look forward to reading Margaret Rome's book.

You'll love Margaret's book!  I was lucky enough to get a signed copy as a gift and have read it twice.  Her WIN philosophy especially resonates for me.

 Karen, I love this post! Well of course, I would...it's about me! Could you move to Baltimore? I really need a good translator. ..so rare and so hard to find!

Just found out from your last post that you and I are both Registered Nurses..my first career. 

Glad you liked the photo of the giraffe taken yesterday at the ACC craft show in Baltimore. Take a look at my latest post...  Serengeti at the Baltimore ACC Show This Weekend

I’m also a giraffe! I also thought it was “graceful giraffe” but someone else pointed out that it is “gracious giraffe.” I haven’t gone back to double check.
