Sanguine / Phegmatic

The SanPhleg

          The SanPhleg is the easiest person to enjoy and be around. The overwhelming and unpleasant tendencies of an optimist are compensated by the graceful and calm phlegmatic. The SanPhlegs are extremely happy people whose carefree spirit and good humor make them joyful and sought-after artists. Helping people is his usual activity, along with sales of various kinds.

          They are the least outgoing of any optimist and are often regulated by their environment and circumstances rather than motivated. SanPhlegs are naturally pro-family and preserve the love of their children and everyone else. They wouldn't hurt anyone on purpose.

          SanPhleg's biggest weaknesses are lack of motivation and discipline. He prefers to socialize than work and tends to take life very informally. As one executive commented, "He is the kindest guy I ever fired." He rarely bothers about something and tends to find the positive side of everything. Usually, he has an endless repertoire of jokes and delights to make others laugh, often when the occasion demands seriousness. When Jesus Christ becomes the main object of his love, he becomes a more determined, and productive person.

          The first-century evangelist Apollos is as close as we can get to a New Testament illustration of a SanPhleg. Loved by all, followed devoutly by some, this pleasant and dedicated man apparently traveled a lot. Apollos succeeded Paul and others who had founded many churches, however never founding a church himself. As an expert speaker he did the job of stirring up the churches with his Spirit-filled preaching and teaching.
