We must learn the art of placing individuals into six main popular categories; two more broadly and four less broadly.
The art of knowing others, always achieves credible results when the steps for including others is properly defined.
Where do we place individuals who are highly complex and difficult to understand?
We cannot be able to reach far, describing them; except we take years to make final evaluations.
This is due to the vision, aim and goals that each specific individual has. There is considerable amount of energy in that direction. So is profitable if we are properly guided in our decision.
Generally, you would always realize that the predominant behavior is reigning supreme in the day-to-day activities. So let’s consider where a person currently is, before we assume he or she is behaving according to his one core attitude.
Attitudes change with respect to time, so the dominant traits must be careful tracked before preference for the categorization of those behavioral patterns ensues.
Let’s talk about the popular mannerism that take place within a society. Consider: A music star performing at a musical concert.
There are definitely applauds, shouts, and a few dance here and there. However, these are transpired by purely introverts.
So there is a battle here.
Are external influence weighing so much influence against the general character of the individual; or perhaps the character in concern is displaying inborn manners without care.
Such differential issues are matters we must consider before rightly placing individuals in their groupings so that personal decision making can take place successfully.
We can highlight the six main categorization of personalities. But we would start by briefing ourselves with two.
Introverts and Extroverts.
Introverts are individuals who are predominantly interested in their own mental self. They care more with reason, intellect and mindset. They are quick observers who are good for planning strategies.
Generally reserved, we must know that we are able to group them rightly in their personality segment.
Is the person under the evaluation process, generally indoors. Let’s ask ourselves.
After a long timespan, is he generally quiet and silent. These group of people are planners, so if you would like to get to know deeper concerning who they truly are, then they are introverts.
You can get to know more about them by their day-to-day options they go for. Rightly said, they do not like going outdoors or leading a group. You would know that targeted individual when he himself likes to listen, even during the listening process where you are trying to know them more.
They listen as they may be indeed quiet. They are not prone to joke always. More likely to have a serious countenance, they refrain from hosting public shows and performance events.
Great thinkers who involve themselves in matters which engage getting to know people like these; reach a higher understanding of knowing people compared to fellow colleagues, or candidates who are close by.
We are not to go for silence to mean introversion. No, rather, it is the natural ability of which an individual uses the mind in their day-to-day activities.
Some are more inclined to use muscular energy compared to mental energy. For those individuals, we can talk of the fact that they are not introverts.
Introverts are clever individuals, who respond to mental functions more appropriately than general muscular functions.
A sense of reflection and memory are their home. A colleague who likes academia matters is clearly an introvert.
Though career is a tough matter to discuss, matters that involve mental reasoning play a dominant role in relation to their performance and advancement.
The art of knowing others is centered on knowing the vision of an individual, as well as, applying the strategies involved to figure out if an external influence caused the response; or perhaps, an internal influence caused a reaction.
Introverts are slow to react, since there are likely to be rethinking matters that have to be discussed due to a cause that have taken place. You would know them over a wide timespan so do not assume they are easy to recognize or know.
Nonetheless, the gradual process of communication can unveil their influence to us, more appropriately.
Second, we have pure extroverts.
Predominantly, these are individuals who enjoy the state of primarily obtaining gratification from outside oneself. These are popular individuals who do not stand the chance to be easily forgotten.
They prepare themselves well to flow along with where the world is heading. They know the current trends and their communication is known to include a lot of fun.
There are highly enthusiastic and they are known to help lead role at times. To explain further, they are devoted people who are committed with whatever comes in their hands to do.
They do not waste opportunities easily, just like introverts; they see opportunity. Nonetheless, whiles an introvert would see an opportunity and stay indoors, planning and analyzing to show up perfectly with the opportunity, an extrovert sees an opportunity and fully works out a way to achieve it.
They are confident in whatever they do. You know them by the general fans who support them in whatever cause they do.
There are lovable people and so seekers who do evaluation to place them there, would find themselves contributing immensely in the evaluation assessment.
They contribute and are easy to pick from a crowd. Not every individual would like them, of course, this is due to the risk level they are known to show.
They openly ridicule or praise, and they move ahead. The evaluation for grouping a targeted individual under this category is also tedious.
It requires a considerable amount of timespan to secure a placement here. As they would also not lay bare their personality as extroverts, consciously.
Nonetheless, if a seeker, finds a candidate to predominantly demonstrate muscular energy over mental energy, then we can conclude he or she is likely to fall in this category.
They take much pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings; such as partying, community activities, public demonstrations, and business groups.
They are very responsive to leadership roles, and create a lively atmosphere around them wherever they go. They would not allow projects that an individual desire to do, downplay the efforts they can put off today to cause a show to take place.
Whiles an introvert would postpone an agenda for the next year, an extrovert would cause a matter to be finalized by taking action today and now.
We all cannot act like extroverts, nonetheless, they are prideful people who believe in themselves and know that whatever they find their hands to do success can transpire.
Seekers who hope their evaluations would be positive regarding extroversion, are not to hurry in conclusion. This is because a lively spirit never means a person is extrovert.
Rather, the day-to-day activity generally opted in for is where the answer lies.
Next; we would talk briefly on the remaining four, and consider if we can credibly place people in this categorization during our research findings on a targeted individual; whether done officially or non-officially.
Phlegm: These are free individuals who most of the time want to appear peaceful. An individual who would like to conclude on his findings whether the targeted candidate is a phlegmatic or not, would encounter the issue with relaxation and apathy more pronouncedly in his social activities.
Their vision is their inspiration therefore they are able to plan well though they may demonstrate relaxation and less anxiety. They know themselves not to be carrying leadership roles so the task involved in demonstrating their personality is not boredom.
A criticism of boredom is a blind interpretation.
Rather, they are known to sustain peace among any group they find themselves. Their presence is pivotal for most leaders as they would therefore not compromise their presence in the societal group.
Shortly, you can refer to them as the water element since they are known to penetrate groups and society more freely. Phlegmatics are good for the settling of disputes, as they would not leave their core roles which is the settlement of disputes.
Aggression is unlikely of them to demonstrate, since they like to dwell where peace resides. Seekers trying to acquire much knowledge regarding the fact that candidates are truly phlegms must take careful time before they declare such evaluations, since likely mistakes can be done regarding the placement of an individual here.
Sanguine: When targeting an individual to place them in a category, the placement for sanguine becomes a tough decision to do. When we talk of introvert and extrovert there is a 50% likelihood of failure.
Nonetheless, when we talk of the groups of temperaments, there remains a 75% chance of failure. Therefore, the more specific we get, the more difficult it becomes.
Sanguines can be known by their natural lively and active behaviors. They would respond to busy programs and take leading roles without caring about the risk involved.
Greater caution, as much as a longer duration of time must transpire from a seeker who is trying to know someone in this light. Sanguines are hard to know as well, they may have a sense of positivism.
They are known to be hopeful, and prefer to try again when an agenda fails. They are risk-lovers unfortunately, and so can lose the last money they have on them without much error.
Since they believe the future would be better, classifying a target individual who demonstrates such attitude is not far from impossible.
We may admire their bold personality, but they can have a shortfall of overconfidence. Just appreciate them to be alternatively called the air element.
Choleric: Many research findings are embarked upon to group and individuals to classify them here, nonetheless targeted persons who demonstrate themselves as irritable are not necessarily choleric.
A Choleric individual may show off a ruling spirit. That said, they in that scenario face so much challenges ruling. They are naturally born as leaders, and have a high sense of passion.
We can target an entrepreneur, and research properly, to discuss if he falls in this group.
It is more likely to know a targeted individual would fall in the group and demonstrate good leadership and enterprise.
Fire is the element they call themselves. It is not uncommon for an individual who is in the categorization to lead a quarrel. The passion and drive are usually known.
Also, they may be highly ambitious naturally, and would call on matters to be deliberated by them. Without them we are not likely to have serious projects launched.
There is a 75 percent likelihood of failing to identify an individual under this kind of categorization. All the same, if care is taken we can be able to achieve proper results in our normal classification of target individuals we seek to know; whether plainly or shrewdly.
Melancholic: Here they are popularly known as analytical and thoughtful people. Melancholics are very important in the human society. Their presence is known by the planning stages of businesses.
They are known to handle long-term personal projects more adequately than, perhaps, a sanguine would do. There are good thinkers and prefer to be prudent with resources.
It is a very difficult thing for researching individuals to identify a normal individual as a melancholic. The process for final evaluation is a daunting one, and so a choleric or sanguine can be mistaken to be a melancholic.
Targeted candidates who are slow to build their vision from ground up to the top, can be declared melancholic. They take years to plan their future careers and personal achievements.
They are strategic thinkers and it would do a team a lot of good should the person figure out a true melancholic from the rest.
To be precise, they are simply intelligent. Usually, they are slow to speak and it may be the more reason why many would not detect their flaws.
Though they are leaders naturally, they desire to concentrate on the personal projects they have.
Many can involve themselves in finding individuals and trying to know them, but one caution is that, the timespan for the investigation should remain lengthy to prevent issues on evaluation.
