How high can it go — more than 2K, most definitely!
“… anybody who knows your story knows this was basically the bottom for you. this was where — “
“you know what this tells us, man. I had the chance — how did you get this?”
“These guys, your colleagues found it, wheeled it out here and kept it as a surprise for you. You know what this tells you. I had a chance to give the commencement speech at my almamater this year and the theme of my speech was Why Not. If you dream big enough, sometimes when it looks like it’s the worst, you can come back from everything. And look at you can come back from it.”

Performers are the people for whom it can truly be said “all the world’s a stage.” Born entertainers, they love the excitement of playing to an audience, and will quickly become the center of attention wherever they are.

Pleasure seems to be an end in itself for them, and variety is the spice of life. And so Performers are open to trying almost anything that promises them a good time, not always giving enough thought to the consequences.
Like the other Artisans, Performers are incurably optimistic – “Always look on the bright side,” is their motto — and they will avoid worries and troubles by ignoring them as long as possible. [Please Understand Me II]
