Who Is A Sanmel?
A sanmel is one of the twelve blends of temperament. He’s basically an ambivert, since he’s got the extrovert traits of the sanguine, and also the introvert traits of a melancholy. A sanmel is intermediate, in between extrovert and introvert. He’s a little bit an outgoing person, and somewhat an indoor person also. But if the blend ratio difference between the sanguine and melancholy is large, say 70:30, he will be more an outgoing person than being an indoor personality.
A sanmel is a lively/Intelligent person. The sanguine aspect brings liveliness while the melancholy also makes him a very intelligent person. Therefore, sanmels are both lively and Intelligent personalities. They love having very cerebral conversations with people. A sanmel will hardly pass by or ignore any intelligent discussion. He must join in such conversations to express his or her own thoughts.
Because of the sanguine aspect in a sanmel, they tend to also be people- oriented personalities. But they also know when to keep their distance from you, since they’ve also got a secondary melancholic blend, which moderates everything they do. It’s for this reason that you could get really confused about their lifestyle, and what they really pander to.
When it comes to their job or career, a sanmel is an enthusiastic, happy and also a perfectionist personality. He’s very passionate about his job, and does it with excitement. Eventhough he could be a talker, fond of talking while working. But be rest assured that he’s going to deliver a good job, since he’s also a perfectionist. Let’s consider some of the careers they’re best suited for.

They can work alone and just do their job without having to meet anyone, and also in such careers that requires talking to people.
