Ahhhhh -- here's an article that is music to my ears!

It's all about how GE is working with the principles of storytelling to provide buyers more than just information about product specifications. GE is deliberately working with stories to create the human connection with each other that we all desire.

   As in my case, you may likely feel that you belong in more than one of these categories.
  What matters is your ability to develop greater sensitivity for the differences that make up these profiles and to cull more attentively those that you feel are closer to your character and objectives.

Interesting. 8/10
