Knowing The Personality of Your Love One

Understanding the personality of our loved ones can help us deal with them better. Knowing your loved one's dominant predisposition can help you relate and communicate with them more effectively. There are many different ways to determine an individual personality. Hippocrates identified 4 major personality types: Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic and Melancholy.

Cholerics are dynamic and active people who are born leaders. They have a compulsive need for change and feel they must correct wrongs. They are strong willed and decisive and are not easily discouraged. They are also independent and self sufficient.

Sanguine people are messy but energetic, optimistic and cheerful. They're enthusiastic when starting something but usually quit before they're done. They live in the present and have a good sense of humor.

Phlegmatic have low key personalities and are laid back. They are detailed oriented people who are calm, cool and collected. They can be precise to a fault(nit picky perfectionist) and somewhat boring.

Melancholy people are the genius prone. They are analytical, artistic or musical, philosophical and poetic. Because they live to the extreme, some would call them moody.

It'll take a little effort to see life from the standpoint of your loved one, but being able to relate better is worth it.
