Your Result: Melancholy 88%
You're Melancholy! You are very much a grim, sorrowful introvert who needs to learn to communicate your feelings; emotionally you are very protective and guarded. The way you demonstrate or say you love someone is by being dependable and responsible, not in physical or verbal terms necessarily. Because of your intellectual and analytical energies you can see the end results of a project before moving forward. You have a very sensitive emotional nature; feelings dominate your being. Sometimes moods will lift you to extreme highs; at other times you will be gloomy and depressed. The secondary temperament will often help balance this out. You aren't very social by nature, meeting new people is extremely difficult and social activities can be draining to you. You are the most sad out of the temperaments, and you will often have a woeful expression. You have a critical or "directive" bent, like the Choleric. At your best, you are capable of great and wonderful things. When you sink to your weaknesses you become destructive to yourself and those close to you. You can be a loner, who's more task oriented as opposed to relationship-oriented. You tend to be a perfectionist and may set unreasonable standards and goals for yourself and the people around you. You are very loyal person to both your family and friends. If you make a promise, you will keep it. You are very creative, but are prone to deep depression. You are a very private person, as well as very serious, and self-motivated.
You're Sanguine! You are a very mischievous, happy, bubbly, gregarious, sociable extrovert who likes to be with people. Of all the temperaments, you are the easiest to be around socially. You are an outgoing, handshaking, touching person. You bring life and energy into a room by your very presence. Your cheerfulness and humor brighten everyone's life. You are an optimistic type of person who believes life is an exciting and fun-filled experience that should be lived to the fullest. Inactivity causes you stress because the pace at which you like to live your life is fast and furious. You are the most impulsive of all the temperaments. You excel in communication-oriented things, but you do not relate well to tasks. You are the least disciplined and organized of all the temperaments. While you are outgoing, enthusiastic, warm, compassionate, and seem to relate well to other peoples feelings, you can be rude and uncaring. The reason for this is because you tend not to be a faithful nor loyal friend, since you do not want to be burdened down with commitments; you just want to have fun. You live as though you have no past or future, you rarely learn from your past mistakes. You are prone to exaggerate. You never recognize your failures, but exaggerate to make yourself appear to be more successful than you truly are. Your major weakness is that you adopt severe and destructive behavior. You'll volunteer for difficult tasks, completing a project so long as your ego is being fed.
"You're Supine! Otherwise known as the Leukine or Eclectic temperament, you are a shy, servile, dependent enforcer who probably has many interests and cares, but little ability or need to express your needs. You often feel like you a have a tape over your mouth. You often have a wish or desire, but are unable or unwilling to express it. You often wish that others could "read your mind." You are very sensitive and easily offended, much like the Melancholy. Slow-paced and diligent, you are not indifferent, unlike the Phlegmatic, or uncaring about life. Quite the opposite, you may have the strong feeling of the Sanguine but simply be unwilling to express yourself. You have a view of the world that makes you consider others to be superior to yourself. You frequently employ yourself in positions that permit yourself to be a servant to others. You will dutifully work to please others, who you see as better than yourself. Your expression is often a shy smile. Other temperament types may view you as a dominating individual. By all outward appearances you are. But the real truth is that you are manipulating others into taking care of you, and you do not want the responsibility of actual decision making. You will generally be nice, but if others cross you too much, then like Melancholies, you will react, and even possibly violently. You tend to bottle up your anger which you describe as "hurt feelings" and will explode if you are being abused, even if you do not feel appreciated."
