^Me:Popular Sanguine with a bit of Perfect Melancholy^

Months ago, my friend bought a book entitled 'Personality Plus : How to Understand Others by Understanding Yourself' by Florence Littauer. I wanted to read that book (actually not read it, but more like answering the personal traits quiz in it..) before, but my friend cleverly said 'tak payah la...ko tak jawab quiz die pun kitorg tau apa ko nyer traits'..huhuh...bold statement kan?hihihi...The thing is, this book basically explain why we are different..we are not the same person..we might be similar, but not exactly the same..Ni mcm personality quiz yang kita jawab masa kat sekolah, universiti dulu2, tapi tak se'detail' this book...So, I wanted to try it out again..
So, when i got the book from him(and setelah lama dibiarkan berhabuk), I tried the quiz out..Betul ke apa yg kwn2 aku nampak aku?Do they see me as I see myself?Or were they totally wrong about me...huhuh...So, after I answered the quiz, wallah~~ thus the title of this post...hihih...Suprisingly (ye ke?hahaha) my friends were d**n right all the way...I am what I am rupanya...huhuh....Actually based on the score of the quiz....I'm more on the Popular Sanguine(highest score) with a small part of Perfect Melancholy(2nd highest)...So what are Popular Sanguine traits actually?meh kita summarize kn..huhuhu(extract from the same book by Florence Littauer)

The lift of joy in times of trouble
The touch of innocence in a jaded area
The word of wit when we're weighted down
The lift of humor when we're heavyhearted
The ray of hope to blow away our black clouds
The enthusiasm and energy to start over and over again
The creativity and charm to color a drab day
The simplicity of a child in complex situations

Popular Sanguine Personality : The Extovert + The Talker + The Optimist

Appealing personality
Talkative, storyteller
Life of the party
Good sense of humor
Memory of color
Physically holds on to listener
Emotional and demonstrative
Enthusiastic and expressive
Cheerful and bubbling over
Good on stage
Wide-eyed and innocent
Lives in the present
Changeable disposition
Sincere at heart
Always a child

p/s: I did not post the other personality because it would mean a longer post, a boring reading, and a yawn from you the readers...hihihi..Plus, the 2nd trait is just a small portion of who I am

So basically, that was what the book explained bout me..The details?You have to read the book by yourself...My opinion, the traits really suit me I guess. I would want to say no, but my friends (who know me for a while now) said the same thing too..So maybe the book was right..So how do these traits developed?Mind you, when I was a child (5-12 years old), I am totally the OPPOSITE side of this personality. I don't really know how I became one now..hahah..I 'blame' it on the environment, friends and maybe the traits were already there, just waiting for the right time to unleash themselves..Your traits make who you are, and not everyone would like all of it...Who care?The fact that each and everyone is unique, so we have to accept that. Some people might not like us but don't worry, we might not like them either...hahah..so there! Fair and square...
So guys, if you have time, go to the bookstore, get a copy of this book and try it out..Maybe you will understand more about yourself and others...See, when you learn about others, you know how to handle them differently..Be comfortable with your own traits...I know I am...hihi...
signing off for now~~ ciao~~
