You are a serious, soft spoken introvert who others would label pessimistic, but you correctly understand that you are realistic. When others are in a frenzy, you are calm. You stand back, analyze the situation, find the problem create a solution. You are slow to act, but when you do it is well thought out and steadily implemented. You don't leap into things you won't finish and you do not require a shower of compliments to keep going like Sanguines do.
Here are two adjective barages for the positives of Melancholly's & Phlegmatics:
As a Phlegmatic your are peacefully awesome:
You are easy going, easy to get along with, relaxed, consistent, patient, well-balanced, calm, cool, collected, a good listener, quiet but witty, sympathetic, kind, you keep your emotions hidden, you are happily reconciled to life, and you are an all purpose person. At work you are competent, steady, peaceful, agreeable, you avoid conflict, mediate problems, lead by consensus, and you don't get that pressured. As a friend you are pleasant, enjoyable, compassionate, concerned, inoffensive, a good listener with a dry sense of humor.
As a Melancholly you are thoughtfully kick ass:
You are deep, analytical, insightful, serious, purposeful, genius prone, talented, creative, possibly artistc, musical, poetic or philisophical. You are considerate, conscientious, self-sacrificing, and sensitive to others. In the workplace you set high standards, pick up after others, are schedule oriented, organized, detail concious, persistent, and thorough. You like charts and graphs. You see the problems and find creative solutions. As a friend, you make friend's cautiously, are content to stay in the background, avoid causing attention, are faithful and devoted, deeply concerned for others, will listen to complaints, and you can solve people's problems.
At best your personality works thusly. Your easy going Phlegmatic nature protects you from being too sensitive or getting depressed, and your Melancholly side inspires you towards perfection, motivating you and preventing you from never doing anything.
Now the harsh part. Here are two more adjective barages about your weaknesses. Don't despair, we love you anyways!:
As a melancholly:
You remember negatives, hold on to hurt, sulk, get moody or depressed or guilty, you are too introspective, self-centered, with a low self-image, you feel persecuted and you mind is off in another world. In the workplace you may be too meticulous, or a martyr. You are not people oriented, choose dificult work, are hesitant to start, spending too much time on planning, prefering analysis to work, and you are hard to please with your high high standards. You secretly have a deep need for approval. As a friend you live through others, are critical, withdrawn, hold back affection, don't accept compliments, you are unforgiving, suspicious, and you dislike those in opposition towards whom you are antagonistic and even revengeful.
As a Phlegmatic this is you at your worst:
You are unenthusiastic, fearful, worried, indecisive, selfish, shy, reticent, self-righteous, too compromising and you avoid responsibility. At work you are not goal oriented, lacking in self-motivation, hard to get moving, resentful of being pushed, lazy, careless, discouraging & you have a quiet will of iron. As a friend you dampen enthusiasm, stay uninvolved, are indifferent, unexciting, judgemental, sarcastic, teasing & you resist change.
And yet you are still wonderful. There is no blame here. This is just how the Melancholly and Phlegmatic tend to be. This analysis is just a tool to help you understand yourself better so you can have more power to get what you want. Your negatives are difficult, but your strengths are formidable, you are the most thoughful of the 4 possible temperment combinations. You probably get along well with extroverted care free Sanguine Cholerics because you balance them. You can hear their bossy ideas of what everyone should do and help them see their flaws and make their ideas work. You have excellent follow through, and are a stable friend to those you love.
The author of this test would like to acknowledge that Melancholy Phlegmatics are my personal favorite type of person to be around. They are humble and steadfast. I find I can bring them into nearly any situation and they do fine. Praise be to you from me I say!
