Return to choleric


The Choleric-Sanguine combination is driven by two temperament needs. The primary need is to get results. The secondary need is to be accepted socially. Either need may dominate their behavior depending on the requirements of the situation.

The Choleric and Sanguine natural tendencies combine to produce a result-oriented person who needs to be around people socially some of the time. This combination naturally likes being the leader and is often an executive.

The Choleric-Sanguine has a natural drive to quickly get results. They are goal and bottom-line oriented, and can be very persuasive in promoting their ideas and goals. They are easily annoyed when others do not comply with their instructions or direction but it passes quickly; quickly aroused, easily calmed. They are not angry, although others may at times think they are furious. They are impatient and will push others to obtain results and be productive.

They take a win/lose approach to life, so when results are not coming quickly enough they become bored and will move easily to another project. They have boundless energy so they need lots of activity. They require little sleep (4 to 6 hours is common). They dislike details or doing tedious work, however, they see the importance of details, and can easily delegate that to others. The Choleric-Sanguine is not a frequently found combination.
