The Sanguine is the life of the party. Truth be told, they would love life to be one big party, complete with decorations and games! They are fun people. They can come up with something fun to do at the drop of a hat.
If you are going to have a dinner gathering you want to make sure that there is a Sanguine on your guest list. They will keep conversation moving and work hard to engage everyone in the room at some time during the evening. Sanguines are motivated by people. Which is great! Sanguines make people feel special because they are always so happy to see you and so interested in what is going on in your life. Sanguines are great in retail jobs for this reason. Customers connect with Sanguines fast. Sanguines will have a hard time in a work environment that does not allow them to focus on other people. They will hate to work alone and they will have a tendency to put non-people oriented tasks lower on their priority list. A Sanguine in the church is an awesome usher, greeter, nursery or Sunday school teacher. They are awesome in drama and will jump at the chance to serve others by organizing events. They will need some accountability to hold them on task in between meetings though because “out of sight, out of mind” is often the case. Someone who is leading Sanguines will want to make regular phone calls to keep them focused.
Sanguines may have a hard time being firm with their kids or with others they have been put in authority over. They want to be liked and may view discipline as something that will make people not like them!
Sanguines don’t care for rules and will often try to charm their way out of having to submit to them. So they need a good understanding of God’s authority to keep them from taking it too far.
