I’m a double extrovert . . . and we are high energy and hard workers. It is not blood but adrenaline that courses through our veins! We can spin circles around people, get ten times the work done, plan light years ahead, and solve fifteen problems at once. But the problem is (as with all[...]
Well, there really are more than just ONE curse for introverts.

Being ONE myself, I know when they are not . . . but I can’t seem to convince them otherwise. They WANT to be Sanguine. I[...]
You KNOW that Sanguines and Melancholies are natural OPPOSITES . . . right? Sorry, you can’t be both. SANGUINES are light, optimistic, silly, carefree, and usually prefer not to be bothered with anything too negative or serious. MELANCHOLIES are deep, see the problems coming, take things seriously, and really care about the details! And Cholerics[...]
