Sanguine: excitable, friendly, story tellers, public speakers, marketers, they respond to people’s emotions easily, compassionate, optimistic, enthusiastic, they don’t worry, enjoy who they are, they make u feel u are their best friends and also make the next person feel the same. Example is Peter.

Irrespective of our various temperaments, it’s very important we subject our lives under the leading, guidance of the Holy Spirit, letting him work in us, through us and for us. Study Galatians 5:16-26 👌😃
