Sanguine - let's do it the fun way!
One of the many helpful talks from the recent Growing Families National Conference was called "What in the World Are They Thinking?: Understanding Temperaments".
Temperament refers to your God-given, inborn, emotional and behavioural pre-dispositions or inclinations.
It doesn't change.
Personality and character however can be altered by life experiences, environment etc.
Sanguines are extroverted, people oriented types, who love to have fun.
They are characterised by talking and a bubbling personality. They inspire and charm and recharge by having social time.
Sanguines can be disorganised, late and prone to exaggeration. They are worried about being unpopular or bored.
They are recognised by their loud volume and bright eyes.
To parent a sanguine child, provide lots of social interaction, time for talking and music for background when they are focusing and concentrating on a task.
Enjoy this God-given personality!
