The phlegmatic is one who feels emotion but does not easily display what they feel. Perhaps, the phlegmatic simply evaluates how much energy it would take to openly express those emotions or it may be that this personality type would just rather remain uninvolved. The fact remains however, that phlegmatic tends to keep emotional responses well hidden. 

“A good Bible illustration of the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a phlegmatic is easy-going, good-natured Abraham. This great patriarch was dominated most of his life by fear. In fact, twice in his life he was so selfishly fearful that he denied his wife and tried to palm her off as his sister. She was such a beautiful woman that he thought Pharoah and later Abimelech would kill him to marry her. This cowardly man was later transformed so much by the gift of faith it was said of him: ‘Abraham believed by God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness’”. "Spirit-Controlled Temperament" by Tim LaHaye
