Now let’s look into Sanguine-Phlegmatic personality compatibility. This is an interesting couple indeed! They are not similar in nature at all, but their differences compensate for each other and, funnily enough, opposites attract as the famous saying goes!
Sanguine and Phlegmatic people are generally attracted to each other, but Phlegmatic females approach Sanguine males with caution because of their fear to get their feelings hurt by some of these happy-go-lucky adventure seekers. Still, these two temperaments often fall in love with each other and when they do, they make a very interesting couple due to the creativeness of the Sanguine personality and imagination of Phlegmatic partner.
Both of these temperaments are verbally skilled – the Sanguine partner will express himself or herself spontaneously, while the phlegmatic partner finds the right words to describe his or her feelings. They are both optimists, and they are also flexible and open-minded.
Unpredictable Sanguines will be thrilled by the trust and patience of their Phlegmatic partner. Secretive and mysterious, the Sanguine person will be captivated by emotional openness of their Phlegmatic sweetheart.
Phlegmatic partners will also surprise by their romanticism:
- special goodbye kisses,
- greeting cards and love notes,
- romantic weekends together,
- cute little gifts for no reason.
This couple may have differences because of the Sanguine’s desperate need for independence. The Phlegmatic partner will want genuine closeness and a connection that sometimes, will not be completely understood by their Sanguine partner. As a result, the Phlegmatic will feel lonely and abandoned, and the Sanguine will feel smothered by the constant throw of emotions.
Similarly, the desire to completely analyze every moment, discussion and action from the side of the Phlegmatic will drive the Sanguine completely bonkers. On the other hand, the Phlegmatic partner may want to discuss feelings and emotions, but the Sanguine person is an extrovert and has no desire for such intimate discussions. As a result, the Phlegmatic may decide that his or her Sanguine partner is shallow.
When talking about the personality compatibility of Phlegmatic and Sanguine partnerships, there is another interesting point that it is important to mention: Phlegmatic people may go to great lengths to please and nurture their partners but sadly, Sanguine people sometimes do not appreciate this, and in some cases may even find their Phlegmatic partners weak, needy and spineless.
However, both of them have traits that help them survive the troubled times – the Phlegmatic’s need for harmony and tolerance of the Sanguine. Because of these qualities and because of their flexibility, they may stay positive about each other and remain together for years.
