On the 2nd Day of Christmas:

I have written a personality quiz for you!  Yes, me, my own self, I tirelessly studied the intricacies of human interaction in order to present you with this quiz about you.  You're welcome.  I actually wrote it as an excuse to make use of an observation I found terribly funny, and I meant to post it directly on the blog, but the site is being terribly wenchy so I have been unable to embed it properly, but here is the link to it in the meantime: 4 Temperaments Quiz.

The 4 Temperaments is very limited, however, and honestly the Myers-Briggs is so much more satisfyingly in depth, so I recommend checking that one out too.          

Anyway, if you do take the test, leave a comment and tell me if it seemed accurate.

Merry Christmas, all!

Sanguine: Life of the Party. You are social, outgoing, and usually sunny.

At you worst, you are irresponsible and do not follow through your obligations. At your best, you are a compassionate and generous friend, known for your kindness.
“OMG, that is so me! My nickname in school was The Butterfly, and at first I thought it was because I dress really colorfully, but then my best friend told me it was because I can’t sit still!” The sanguine then immediately begin chatting about their latest life developments

While I love this description of me, I really hope there are more layers to my personality! Lol....probably not. Ah well, ce la vie! Happy 3rd day of Christmas, darling!

The limitations of a little online quiz is the need to squish only the most obvious of chacteristics.

My temperaments does not come out like a superhero either, trust me. :-) There is always plenty of room for layers though.

Melancholic: Philosopher. You are analytical, idealistic, and naturally intellectual.

At your worst, you are pessimistic and reclusive. At your best, you are motivated by integrity, you are perceptive, and sensitive to others’ suffering.
“How depressing. The name has the word melancholy in it. I’m going to take the test again, because I was really uncertain of my answers the first time.” They then agitatedly began dissecting the meaning of the test, and wondering What This All Means regarding THEIR FUTURE.

That's so me, it's ridiculous. "How do I improve so that I'm always at my best and not pessimistic and reclusive?" Actually, I think I'm pretty optimistic, but I definitely have the tendency to become a recluse. I can take the "work before play" thing too far. I do have a very artistic side, though. I think that stems from the perceptiveness and sensitivity. Things move me deeply. Ok, I'm stopping here, before I analyze this to smithereens! ;-)

Merry Christmas!

Lol! Exactly, Angele! Melancholics can drive themselves nuts, but humor is the best diffusion for all that.

Newspaper Cut Outs said...

Phlegmatic: Peacemaker. You are mellow, even-tempered, and unflappable where others lose their temper.
At your worst, you avoid conflict to a fault, becoming listless and indecisive. At your best, you are the perfect peace-maker, able to diffuse volatile situations with calm logic and dry wit.
“Cool.” The phlegmatics remained serenely unruffled and chat about the mechanics of the test itself.

-----------------------------------Its kinda like me I suppose. I guess i'm really mellow and peaceful usually and I"m not really bothered by much. but i do know that when i'm truly upset i get really explosive and completely out of my element. thank goodness i'm not usually upset.

what did you end up with?

NCO, the 4 temperaments gets really limited when your combination of two start to conflict, so I feel you. I'm Melancholic/Choleric, or more accurately, INTP.

Kristy! You're alive! I checked out the Sunglasses Hut contest, and it looks like you are doing spectacularly!
