Describing the Sanguine Temperament

Say hello to the socialite! They’re the life of the party! Anything for attention, really… anything. They love people and being around them all the time. Their presence brings life to the party. They’re mostly happy and act as if they don’t have a care in the world, because they don’t. They’re very optimistic and can find the silver lining in just about any situation. “Live life to the fullest” is a Sanguine’s motto. They tend to live a fast paced life and slowing down or loneliness will stress them out. Ever seen someone with a thousand friends on facebook? That is very Sanguine as they know many people, but truly have very few close friends. Why? They’re so busy meeting or wanting to meet new people. They have a gift for striking up a conversation with anybody.

Have you ever started talking to a person and they lost interest. They began to scope out the room as if they were looking for someone. The Sanguine will do this as the conversation is not exciting or filled with too much “boring details”. They want light and exciting conversations and they scope out the room to find a person who will give this to them as they tend to be self listeners.

They tend to be the best in sales as they love people and communicating. Quite opposite from the melancholy, they tend not to be the thinkers and usually aren’t the neatest people, because they’re busy socializing and crave attention. They are the skin hungry temperament. They love to touch, hug, or cuddle. They love to smell chocolate, flowers, or anything else nice with pretty bows.

As for leadership? The Sanguine will want to be the boss, as usually the boss is the center of attention, but once the load becomes too big or they run into a crisis, they tend to find other people to take on the responsibility or in extreme situations, “jump ship”.

Sanguine’s are great at being fun, but tend to be flaky. They tend to be very selfish and tend to have narcissistic tendencies. They’re not very good at keeping promises or showing up on time. After all, they do have to make an entrance when everyone is watching!
