As I was writing the “meet the boys” page of my blog, I thought of an example I’ve heard tell, of the four personality traits: Phlegmatic, Choleric, Melancholy and Sanguine.
It goes something like this:
There is a barn on fire.
The Phlegmatic says in a monotone voice – “bummer. It’s too bad. That was a cool barn.”
The Choleric says in a commanding voice – “Alright… bucket brigade… everyone, line up and lets start putting this thing out! Come on… lets MOVE!”
The Melancholy says in an emotional and sincere voice – “Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness… I hope they got the horses out. Did anybody check to see if they got out? Oh, my. What a tragedy.”
The Sanguine… who can find joy in almost anything – “Whooo-hooo! Weenie roast!! Anybody got marshmallows? Let’s have a bonfire party!“
I just want you to know that I have one of each… and they are told in order of birth!
