While there are tons of tests about personalities, most people fall under one or two of four personality types. The most popular personality types are phlegmatic, choleric, melancholy, and sanguine. If you haven’t already figured out which personality type you fall under, be sure to take one of the many tests online. This gives you more insight into who you are, your quirks, and your habits. It’s also great to know because you’ll be able to figure out ways to set yourself up for success. When you’re dealing with your love life, your personality type can actually say more than you realize. Consider the ways your personality type plays into your love life.
Sanguines tend to be really upbeat, personable, and social. They love being in love. If your personality type leans toward being a Sanguine, it might not be too hard for you to meet new people since you’re incredibly social. Many Sanguines are naturally talkative. This can play out in a relationship when you love to dominate the conversation with either thoughts about yourself, your experiences, or your opinions. You’ll want to be careful that your banter doesn’t come across as narcissistic or self-centered.
It’s also important to note your natural desire to remain active or busy. This might manifest in the way you desire to always be in a relationship. There’s nothing wrong with being single or spending time getting to know yourself. When you’re able to invest in yourself, you’ll end up being a better partner to someone else. Though it might be really difficult to learn how to sit still and get centered, find ways to do that. You never want to be in a position where you attracted a relationship because you were either desperate or afraid of being alone.
If you have a melancholic personality type, you tend to be a really deep, thoughtful person. You analyze everything. Sometimes, you overthink things. You’ll also be extremely detail-oriented. In a relationship, this can be an amazing experience because you’ll go to great lengths to show your partner how much you’re paying attention and how much you value them. Because you’re so committed to being perfect, you’ll beat yourself up or others for not rising to the occasion as well. You have to learn to give grace to your partner. No one is perfect. Even though you might be detail-oriented, incredibly thoughtful, and kind, know that you have your own flaws as well. When you’re able to let down your introverted guard to let people in, you have the capacity to experience an amazing, reciprocal love that lasts.
If you’re a choleric personality, you are a natural leader. You tend to stand out as an independent, successful individual. Because you’re a natural leader, you tend to attract people who want to follow in your footsteps. If you’re an alpha male, it’s pretty common to be choleric as well. When individuals are choleric, they tend to be naturally extroverted and ambitious. When a lot of people are looking for a romantic partner, ambition tends to be one of the most desired traits.
This means that when you see something you want, you’re going to remain determined to go after it. As a Choleric, you’ll want to remember that you’re a part of a team when you’re in a relationship. Though your partner might love your ambition and leadership qualities, it’s very important to include them in the decision-making process. This is especially true when you two are committed to building a life together. While a great love horoscope can give you some insight, you can depend on the fact that no one wants to feel insignificant or unnecessary in their relationship.
Phlegmatic people are some of the most quiet, easy-going people you can ever love. If you’re a phlegmatic personality, you probably have a deep capacity to love and care for others. You have a huge heart that knows how to sit with people in the midst of hard times and more. Because of that, it’s very easy for people to look to you for comfort when they’re feeling down. You have the gift of empathy. Not everyone knows how to be empathetic. When it pertains to your love life, you have to be mindful of how you compromise in order to appease your partner. You also have to be mindful of your emotions because it’s a lot easier for you to bend towards feelings of sadness. Don’t try to hide your emotions with your partner either. In the desire to keep the peace, you’ll bottle your feelings up. Instead, talk about what’s bothering you, and work through it. Your relationship has a chance when there’s transparency between both people.
If you’re currently in a relationship, knowing your personality type can really help you improve and gain clarity to help your love life. If you’re currently single, consider the ways you can attract the best person with your personality type in mind. As you find ways to merge the two, you’ll be able to attract the love life of your dreams.
