I don't want to take this cause at times of my life I have probably been happier, in the moment, high energy, other times more introspective and sad, sometimes downright depressed. I don't know if this is a static thing.

Apparently I'm primarily (although it may change?) a Melancholy Plegmatic. With a couple of the questions I could have answered two ways, so I just had to pick one.
Overall, I agree with a majority of the assessment, but I have to wonder about the accuracy of the test based on a few questions. If this were a scientific study, I think it would fail due to the lack of a pool of questions. If 4 questions are erratic, then it can throw off the results given it is 1/3 of the test.

Sanguine

57 Sanguine, 36 Melancholy, 21 Choleric, 21 Phlegmatic
Hail to you who is SANGUINE!!!

Oh how the world needs the Fun Sanguine. The lift of joy in troubled times. The touch of innocence in a jaded era. The gift of humor when we're heavy hearted. The enthusiasm and energy to start over and over again. The creativity and charm to color a drab day. The simplicity of a child in complex situations.

Here is why you totally rock:
You are enthusiastic, excitable, the life of the party, talkative, a story teller, cheerful, sincere, wide eyed & innocent, curious, emotional, demonstrative, and fun. You are adaptable, you live in the present, and you have a good sense of humor. In your workplace, you think up new activities,volunteer for jobs, start in a flashy way, inspire others to join, charm others to work, look great on the surface, have boundless energy, and you are creative and colorful. As a friend you make friends easily, love people, turn disaster into humor, thrive on compliments, seem exciting, are envied by others, don't hold grudges, apologize quickly, prevent dull moments & like spontaneous activities.

Here is how you suck (sorry it is true, but trust me, it'll be okay):
You are a compulsive talker who exaggerates, elaborates, dwells on trivia, gets lost in tangents, and can't remember names. You scare others off, has too much energy for some, you have a loud voice, a loud laugh, and you seem phony to some. You are egotistical, naive, easily angered, immature, frenetic, restless, and disorganized. At work you are forgetful, don't follow through, undisciplined, your priorities are out of order, you would rather talk than work, you decide by feelings, easily distracted, and your confidence fades fast. As a friend you hate to be alone, need to be center stage, want credit, want to be liked and wants to be popular. You dominate conversations, interrupts and don't listen, you answer for others, repeat stories, make excuses and your are fickle.

And yet still, you are everyone's favorite, deservedly so, because you are so wonderful! I mean, everyone has weaknesses, but at least you are interesting! You make life into an adventure. You rock.


-----------------------------
I think I'm at least Sanguine-Melancholy, I've just been happier lately

I got Melancholly Phlegmatic. The short description isn't completely wrong, but I feel like I relate more to just plain Phlegmatic. The melancholly traits don't really fit me. No one who knows me can claim I rely on schedules or am detail-oriented. :tongue:

Melancholy Choleric
7 Sanguine, 57 Melancholy, 50 Choleric, 21 Phlegmatic

Hail to you who is a Choleric Melancholy.

The depth to see into the heart and soul of life.
The grip of leadership to head us to the good.
The firm control when others ar losing theirs.
The ability to analyze and arrive at the proper solution.
The willingness to take a chance in a doubtful situation.
The talent to create a masterpiece where nothing existed before.
The pledge "if it is worth doing, it's worth doing right."
The confidence to hold true in the face of ridicule.
The urge to "take arms against a sea of troubles by opposing them."
The aim to finish what you start.

Yours is the most successful combination of the personality types. The pairing of your decisive Choleric leadership, drive and goals, with your Melancholy's analytical, detail conscious, organized schedule-oriented mind is unbeatable. Your melancholy side is inclined toward perfection, and your choleric side is predisposed towards success. So you will get what you want no matter how long it takes.
This is what is awesome about you as a Meloncholy:
You are deep, thoughtful, 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.

And here is what is awesome about you as a Choleric
You are a born leader, strong willed, active, dynamic, decisive, not easily discouraged, unemotional, independent, self-sufficent, confident, with a compulsive need for change & to correct wrongs, and you can run anything. At work you are goal oriented, you see the whole picture, seek practical solutions, quickly move into action, delegate, organize well, insist on production, stimulate activity and thrive on opposition. As a friend, you have less need for friends than other temperments. You'll work for group activity, lead, organize, and you excell in emergencies. You are usually right.


Can you see how cool this makes you? You can do anything! Others are hesitant, indecisive, impulsive but not you. However, it is not all roses. There are some hefty weaknesses here too.

Here are your weaknesses as a Choleric:
First of all you don't think there is anything wrong with you. You think you are always right, so you can't be wrong. You'll probably think the following aren't even weaknesses. They are. Cholerics are impatient, impetuous, inflexible, unsympathetic, bossy, quick tempered, dominating, and too busy. You can't relax, you won't let others relax, you like to argue, you won't give up when you are losing, you won't admit you are wrong, and basically you come on too strong. In the workplace, you have little tolerance for mistakes, you don't compliment others instead you are rude and tactless, you make rash decisions by glossing over details (unless you have a melancholly edge to you), you are manipulative & demanding. As a friend you tend to use people, dominate, decide for others, know everything, think you can do everything better than everyone else, be unapologetic, and be too independent.

Those blend powerfully with the weaknesses of the Meloncholy:
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. 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.


Okay that is a crap load of negativity there. You are for the most part, freaking awesome. You are the cornerstone of any good plan. Without you everyone would just be running around like a chicken with their head cut off, or sitting around relaxing doing nothing. The other personality types would like you to understand how overbearing you can be, and they'd be grateful for more acceptance from you, but for the most part they appreciate your making things happen.

Melancholly 36 Sanguine, 43 Melancholy, 21 Choleric, 36 Phlegmatic

pretty evenly distributed, I could probably get other results some other day, there were many questions where the answer didn't feel obvious. Like the first, I can both be the one who just starts things without thinking and don't finish, and the one that plan until there is no time left to execute the plans, it all depends.

I got Sanguine Phlegmatic. Even though I'm like a shining beacon of negativity, LOL. And I am not extroverted, like, at all, except around people who I know really well or if I'm in certain moods. I don't think this was accurate.

Sanguine Melancholy
50 Sanguine, 43 Melancholy, 14 Choleric, 29 Phlegmatic

Dear test taker, I must immediately point out to you before I explain this personality type that Sanguines & Melancholy's are opposites. In the logic of the test, you are not supposed to be able to be both. I have watched the results of this test for years, and it is generally unlikely that anyone gets this answer. I mean that. Mathematically, it is so unlikely. This explanation is the test's fluke result. It means that most likely, I botched the test, so I advise you to maybe retake the test and see if you get a different (better) answer. If you truly are the exceptionally rare Sanguine Melancholy, then Congratulations!!!! You are an awesomely unique individual! Cue trombone, trumpets, marching band! Bram Bum Bump Buh Bum, boo BUM BUMP! Explaining to you what it is like to be Sanguine Melancholy is almost impossible. For years before I took this test, I was the only one I knew, and so had no idea how to explain it. You are an extroverted introvert who is pessimistic and optimisitc. You think too much or not enough. It is akin to being bipolar, but it is different, and I imagine/hope you understand. In the other personality types this section is about how your two types combine to make you super awesome, but Sanguine and Melancholy don't really combine. It is my experience that you are either one or the other. Best that can be said is you probably can get along with a wide swath of people, by being variously introverted or extroverted depending on the situation. So here is what you get: below are the strengths of a melancholy, then the strengths of a sanguine, then the weaknesses of a melancholy, and then the weaknesses of a sanguine. Enjoy! Here is why you totally rock as a Sanguine: You are enthusiastic, excitable, the life of the party, talkative, a story teller, cheerful, sincere, wide eyed & innocent, curious, emotional, demonstrative, and fun. You are adaptable, you live in the present, and you have a good sense of humor. In your workplace, you think up new activities,volunteer for jobs, start in a flashy way, inspire others to join, charm others to work, look great on the surface, have boundless energy, and you are creative and colorful. As a friend you make friends easily, love people, turn disaster into humor, thrive on compliments, seem exciting, are envied by others, don't hold grudges, apologize quickly, prevent dull moments & like spontaneous activities. And here is what is so perfect about being Melancholy: You are deep, thoughtful, 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. Conversely, Sanguines tend to have these weaknesses: You are a compulsive talker who exaggerates, elaborates, dwells on trivia, gets lost in tangents, and can't remember names. You scare others off, has too much energy for some, you have a loud voice, a loud laugh, and you seem phony to some. You are egotistical, naive, easily angered, immature, frenetic, restless, and disorganized. At work you are forgetful, don't follow through, undisciplined, your priorities are out of order, you would rather talk than work, you decide by feelings, easily distracted, and your confidence fades fast. As a friend you hate to be alone, need to be center stage, want credit, want to be liked and wants to be popular. You dominate conversations, interrupts and don't listen, you answer for others, repeat stories, make excuses and your are fickle. And this is a realistic analysis melancholy weaknesses: 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. So right, if you don't see that you oddly have both of those sets of weaknesses and strengths, then retake the test.

Lol, yeah.
Well...I always knew I was weird.

I got Sanguine Phlegmatic.

It would be even more interesting, I think, to see the correlation with Enneagram type, since it seems to reflect my combination of type 9 and type 7. Not sure if this applies for any of the others.

Hail you who are Phlegmatic!

The stability to stay straight on the course. The patience to put up with provokers. The ability to listen, while others have their say. The gift of mediation, uniting opposing forces. The purpose of peace at almost any price. The compassion to comfort those hurting. The will to live in such a way that even your enemies can't find anything bad to say about you.

Here is what's great about you:
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.

And here is how you suck 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.

But you are still totally awesome, and everyone has their flaws. At least you are not bossy and tell everybody what to do all the time, right? Right.
