The Popular Sanguine Temperament
Influencing of others, SP – Artisan, The Sanguine – we call this POPULAR PERSONALITY is receptive by nature and outgoing. They are usually called a ‘super-extrovert’. This temperament is usually thought of as a “natural salesman” but they also tend to enter professions that are outgoing such as acting. They “lead into a room with their mouth” and are never at a loss for words. There outgoing nature makes them the envy of more timid temperament types. They are most comfortable around people and does not like being alone. They are often known as a “toucher”; reaching out and touching the arm or shoulder of the person they are talking with. This can make more introverted temperament nervous and uncomfortable.
Their energy can make them seem more confident than they actually are and their cheery disposition often causes others to excuse their weaknesses by saying, “That’s just how he/she is”. The Popular is mostly a happy person whom others are glad to have around.
The weakness of The Popular includes a lack of discipline which can be expressed in many ways – including a generally “messy” lifestyle or overeating. The Popular is the most emotional of the temperaments and can burst into tears or a rage without warning. These “bursts” are usually over as fast as they occur but this lack of emotional consistency can affect other areas of thier lives. They may be “morally flexible” and may take advantage of others via their good nature. A Popular’s tremendous personal talents can be made or broken by his lack of self-discipline.

No Temperament is good or bad. This is who we are. And we need not change to become effective, we need only to prove and finetune.
Every Temperament has its strong areas and those areas which are limiting that Temperament to become its best. Here we need to understand this that the weak areas of any temperament are not anything else but the extreme of their strong areas.
So understanding temperament is the start point of knowing the true strengths and becoming aware of the weak areas in order to become the best version of ourselves.
We are not ‘One’ temperament. We are Blended. We all are Blended.
