TOP 10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PERSONALITIES (in no particular order) – Part 2

5. Each of the four personalities has emotional needs. People and personalities are like cars . . . when a car’s gas tank is empty it doesn’t work, when a person’s emotional gas tank is empty, they don’t work. This means they start gravitating toward their weaknesses. Read More.

6. Many personalities can be identified by visual clues. I used to work at a dry cleaner, and my ability to use personalities to identify customers often helped me understand them before they walked up to the counter. Knowing a customer’s personality helped me approach them in a way that made his/her visit to our establishment a pleasant experience. Read More.

7. Not all people can be identified upon visual inspection. For as accurate as a visual assessment can be sometimes it takes observing behavior to be more accurate. Although the visual clues can quickly identify someone’s personality, sometimes it is necessary to invest a little more time observing because appearances sometimes don’t always tell the whole story.

    Hi Shona!
    #5 is so very true. I was just discussing wtih my best friend that my Sang/Phleg blend has been way more Sang in my marriage because I was dying to be recognized – noticed – hear those words that made me feel special etc I heard a lot of words but my phleg was dying to be “shown” those things. It caused me to be a full blast of a lot to deal with for friends and other family members. The only Choleric trait I have noticed time after time in me was the bossy trait – getting my way. I discovered that if I could not have the peace my phleg craved then I tried to get the recognition my Sang craved. If left still dissatisfied in my emotional desert I would allow my mel to over analyze then of course you do not tell a mel they are wrong because they have dug deep and they know the answer then I would follow with the boss in me. If and when I reached that point, I like to call it being “Z”ed out, then I would really be a hand full. In the end as I approach the 2 year mark with out my ex I see a lot more of the phleg making her appearance. I just want peace and for everyone to get along. It is really cool that whily my finances are tumbling out of control in my present condition I feel so much better than I did when I was married to a bipolar with a personality disorder who had awfully strong manipulative talents. Anyway, as you can see I had to bring Mel out to play in order to understand this fully. :)
    Happy New Year!!!! I look forward to reading more!

    Thanks for stopping by, Rachele…yes, unmet emotional needs can make us crazy, but just finding what we need will give any personality peace and help them get through trying times while operating in their strengths instead of their weaknesses.
