Phlegmatic / Sanguine

The PhlegSan

          The easiest of the twelve combinations to get along with over an extended period of time is the PhlegSan.  He is friendly, happy, cooperative, caring, people-oriented, diplomatic, trustworthy, fun-loving, and humorous.  A favorite among children and adults, he never displays an abrasive personality.  He is generally a good family man who enjoys a quiet life and loves his wife and children.  Usually, he attends a church where the pastor is a good motivator where he is more likely to take an active role.

          A PhlegSan's weaknesses are as mild as his personality unless you have to live with him.  Since he manifests the lack of motivation from phlegmatic and lacks discipline from the sanguine, PhlegSans often fall far short of their true capabilities.  He usually drops out of school, misses excellent opportunities, and avoids anything that involves "too much effort."  Fear is the main problem that accentuates an unrealistic feeling of insecurity.  As his faith in God grows, he will grow beyond his shyness, and self-destructive anxiety.  This is a great blessing to your partner and children.  You will prefer to build a self-protective shell around you and selfishly avoid the kind of participation or commitment to the activity you need.  The potential of these joyous and content people encourages great respect.  Still, they must cooperate by letting God motivate them to selfless activities.

          Timothy, a gentle, faithful, and kind-hearted man, relates most to a PhlegSan.  He was the Apostle Paul's favorite spiritual son.  He was reliable and stable but fearful and shy.  More than once, Paul had to push him to be more assertive and "do the work of an evangelist" (2 Tim. 4: 5).
