    Smile Number One

    The shrink tests you.
    She does not bother to ask your estimation.
    Of yourself.

    Maybe she is in the wrong


    Are you

    sanguine
    choleric
    melancholic
    or phlegmatic

    intensive
    expansive
    stable
    or
    sensitive

    in your own estimation.

    State the following:

    Enneagram only if you have it.
    Function order only if you bother.

    Here is a book that is the story of a world or country divided up into those four ancient temperaments.Divided Kingdom by Rupert Thomson

    I always wondered what the term "phlegmatic" referred to, and so I took the opportunity just now to look it up. I wondered if it's origins might be traced back to at some point having the term "phlogiston" as part of the weave. My initial research shows that "phlogiston" was derived from ancient Greek ( "burning up" ) but whose original development as a "scientific concept" was more related to Germany. "Phlegmatic" seems to refer to a temperament possessed by those who remained "calm during a storm", which describes the way I see "NT's" viewing themselves. In my brief dallying on the subject, though, I saw no connection between "burning up" and "storm" ( such as the concept "firestorm" might have suggested. )

    That's an interesting book kuranes. According to it I'm the chosen type Sanguine. But wikipedia says saguine was once treated with leeches!

    Wildcat I'm 9w8 and ISFP, function order? I don't know.But I know this I'm easy going with another more determined side.

    All this typology stuff is very useful wouldn't you agree? A mirror to look into.

    Maybe you could switch it to Lychee instead. No tickee, no leechee. No suckaz, peer-i-udd. Yeah, I'm thinking of reading the book. have to remember to put it on a list or something...

    I'm a blend of sanguine and melancholic; expansive-stable. I'm a kind of intellectual sanguine. I think one of the descriptions in the website given by kuranes is matching:
    As I say somewhere in Divided Kingdom, most writers are sanguine/melancholics sanguine because they are naive or optimistic enough to think that the world needs yet another book, or that their book might do something no book has done before, and melancholic because of the morbid, solitary and inward-looking nature of writing fiction.

    look at my signature and function order should be the same for all ENFPs (Ne, Fi, Te, Si).
