e-Talk Radio: Winward, Heather, 19 September 2000



Heather: That's what I want people to know about it, is that very thing.

Carol: And would you see this benefiting your organization? Or any department of defense organization? Or information technology, tech department?

Mike: I think it really keys on the individual and just opens up some lines of communication within any organization. I think it's applicable anywhere.

Carol: Great. Well, thank you for calling in to us. And wish you all the best in your transition, and where you emerge and find out that you're going to be doing.

Mike: Thank you. Goodbye.

Carol: We have another caller who's on the line, and I believe her name is Doris. Do you have a handwriting example, Heather?

Heather: Yes, I do. Doris, are you here?

Doris: Yes, I'm right here.

Heather: Well, this is very interesting writing. First of all, it looks like you're very self-reliant. And in this conversation, what that means for graphology is you see what needs to be done, and because of your education or experience, it's much easier for you just to do it than to delegate it. You also have… Your goals are above average. Here again, someone that… I think it must be an American thing, but you have to listen to or use sarcasm a really lot. You also like to read, or you have to read. In your life.

Doris: Definitely.

Heather: You also have something… You're analytical, you can analyze data in front of you very, very quickly. In the type of work that you do, you probably have to make decisions very quickly and be the one that's level. Because while all can be breaking down around you, you're someone that has to analyze it very quickly and decide if we can get emotional or not about something. You also are someone that has tenacity, something that belongs to you, whether it's an opinion, a person, or a thing, you hang onto it very, very tightly. It's not that you're not able to get rid of things, which you really try to make sure that you have things for as long as they will serve you. Some people tend to toss off things before they even know if they're valuable. You also have desire for responsibility, and for this conversation, what that means to me is that you either want more to do, or you want to respond better to what you currently have, which would be response-ability. You also have the ability to see relationships as they are, not as they should be. So what that would mean is that, if we're friends and you see me the way I am, not the way I ought to be, which gives me a lot of latitude to be who I am and make changes when I'm ready. That's a really nice trait. Most people don't have that. Most people have expectations that they then hold people to. You're also someone that is very, very direct. If I don't want to know how you feel about something, I shouldn't ask you. Even though you possess dignity, if I ask you, you're going to tell me just what you think. And you also have idiosyncracies. And what that tells me is, well, is that you are someone that does not like to be the same as everybody else. You don't want to necessarily blend in all the time. Even if you're the only one that knows what makes you different, that's what you're going to do. So how's that? There's so much more, I could go on. She gave
