Carolyn Tann-Starr on Type E Social Networking and Tiffany & Co.

Josef Katz Trump U Interview of Margaret Rome     Tiffany.com     ClubChaosAgents.com     TannStarr.com

The Tiffany Blue Box is a very distinct, vibrant, custom shade selected from a wide spectrum of hues available for reproduction in the early 1800's. This signature blue was introduced to patrons in 1837 shortly after the company was formed on September 18th of the same year. The founders, Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young, had a vision for their future and part of that vision was (a) non-negotiable prices, (b) quality, (c) excellence, (d) reputation management and (e) creating a distinctive product whose creative design, craftsmanship and elegance would speak for itself.

Their personalities shaped their work and their work ethic stamped their signatures on the quality of their lives. When one thinks Tiffany & Co one has an expectation that they are going to be in for an extraordinary and well deserved treat. Their collection is awesome. I have yet to meet a single soul who has ever opened one of those blue boxes and not been delighted with the contents presented inside.

When the little minions were born their Godfather, Joe A. Galarza, presented each with a stunning collectible in a little blue box. We were all delighted. It became a new tradition in our home that for very special occasions and important milestones, the wee people would receive a gift in the spirit of those founders who marked their careers by starting at excellence rather than aspiring to it. All children have challenges ahead of them but how you inspire them when they are young will carry with them and color how they accept, deal with and challenge life one day at a time. If they are comfortable with themselves, they will always do their very best and be comfortable with the results. We don't always get what we want, but we can be happy where we are if we choose to be happy and pleased.

Being the best that you can be should be your measuring stick, not the accomplishments of others. Do not compare yourself with what is going on around you, for you are not that other person, you are you. Only you can decide how much effort your life is worth. Only you can pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again. Only you can reinvent yourself. Only you.

Here's my favorite Tiffany quote: "Since 1837, Tiffany & Co. has been the world's premier jeweler and America's house of design." I don't know what they will say about me and my artwork when I pass on, but my creativity is my passion. I create distinctive works of design and I bet several years from now people wont remember that I was a real estate agent, or a law enforcement officer, or a writer, or a paralegal. I bet they will remember I was an artist because art is my life. It's my personality. It's who I am and what I do. It spills into everything. Even my social networking habits. Turns out I do "Type E Social Networking." How cool is that? Very! (LOL)

I can't speak for anyone else, because I don't know the results of your test, but I can speak about me. I'm a Type E personality. Of course, it is a spectrum, just like any other psychological measurement, but it got me wondering what else I didn't know about myself, failed to realize, or just plain ignored. I am in the middle of my own personal bit of reinvention. That's why I migrated from law enforcement to real estate (LOL). Regardless of the employment title, fact is, you are what you do, not where you work and what your title is. You can change jobs in a blink of an eye. Changing you is a bit more difficult.

If you have time, click the link for the Margaret Rome podcast interview, go check out her site and take the Type E test. The results may or may not surprise you. If you're an Active Rain member, feel free to post the results in Josef's comment section if you'd like to share them. We're curious to see how many Club Chaos members are Type E personalities. Inquiring minds really would like to know more about my Type E peeps (LOL).

Carolyn, I love self-discovery with personality types. I know on Myers-Briggs I was an ESTP and it was amazingly accurate. I love the concept behind the Type E personality.
