Which Careers Are Perfect For Cholphleg Temperament Blends:

Today, we want to continue with our series of considering the twelve blend of temperaments after a long while. It is very important that we go back to looking at these temperament blends and try to connect each of them with careers suitable for them, which type of temperament that they will be very much compatible with in marriage, their leadership capabilities, and also their basic strengths and weaknesses. This will no doubt help us to be more detailed and precise in describing the four basic temperaments and also the twelve blends of temperaments. It will also enable you to be more categorical and certain in classifying yourself in any of these blends.

It is basically for this reason that in today’s post we want to continue this conversation with looking at a typical choleric-phlegmatic, also known as a cholphleg temperament blend. Thus, we are mainly going to focus on best or perfect careers for them. Our main interest will be to outline some of the major strengths of a cholphleg blend of temperament and match them with both formal and informal careers that they’re best suited for. First off, let us briefly remind ourselves of who can be described as a cholphleg.

Who’s A Cholphleg Temperament Blend?

A choleric-phlegmatic is one among the twelve blends of temperaments. This persons has got choleric as their main or primary temperament while also having some phlegmatic traits, which basically is their secondary. Therefore we could describe them as ambiverts, since they’re neither pure introverts nor extroverts as proposed by a Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, they are rather intermediate. The choleric aspect of a cholphleg is extroverted, and this will make a typical cholphleg to somewhat be an outgoing person. While also the secondary phlegmatic aspect is usually highly introverted, and which will no doubt also make them less outgoing.

This is basically someone who blends or combines the hot, quick, active and vibrant traits of the choleric plus the calm, cool, quiet, unexcited and also the unmotivated traits of the typical phlegmatic to make a cholphleg work on inertia. The cholphleg could start very slowly at first, and may not really impress you, but their commitment, and very hardworking qualities plus consistency actually yields fruit in the end. They often work on inertia. They rarely move until they’re pushed or forced to, and when they start moving it’s difficult to stop them until they get to where they want to.

Like I stated in my earlier post about the twelve blends of temperaments, that a cholphleg personality is easily one of the most balanced person in terms their lifestyle. They are a little bit outgoing and a little bit reserved. However, since choleric is their basic or predominant temperament, they will thus rather be more outgoing and busy persons than reserved or indoor persons. This blend seems to me to be the most balanced in every aspect of their lives. They know when to go out and when to be in their houses, when to work and also when to relax. When to talk or play, and when to keep quiet or be serious. They seem to know how to control themselves or self-regulate, rarely do they over-do anything.

However, the cholphleg is the most subdued or the weakest of persons of the choleric blend. Invariably, they’re more subdued and weaker than both the cholsan and cholmel. Let’s get this straight. A predominant choleric is a very active personality in extrovert category of the temperament after the sanguine, thus a typical cholsan will be hyperactive personality. Similarly, the melancholic person is more active than a phlegmatic when it comes to the introvert categories therefore, a typical cholmel will be more active than a cholphleg. Hope you got that now? Okay, let’s continue looking at who a typical cholphleg personality is.

When it comes to their strengths and qualities with respect to their job or career, a cholphleg is a very active and hardworking individual. He does what is required or expected of him, rarely does he go beyond his work or job description, but often sticks to the plan or task assigned to him. Just like his phlegchol counterpart, he enjoys and thrives more in field works than administrative duties in the office but he’ll often do a better job in the field, especially in construction and project management jobs than his phlegchol counterpart.

Basically, the choleric aspect of typical cholphlegs commands the industry, hardworking and productiveness that is required to succeed in their career. While their phlegmatic aspect brings organization and meticulous-patience into their job or career. Eventhough typical choleric persons are rarely organized and meticulously-patient persons, nevertheless, because of the phlegmatic in a cholphleg, though less influential compared to the choleric, it will make a typical cholphleg to be a bit more balanced in the way they do things and approach their jobs. For a person who has got these traits and qualities, which careers do you think are the best for them.
