My Personality/Temperament

So, the gals came over tonight and we quilted. I got my borders sewn on, so all that's left is my backing and batting. YAY, almost done. During the course of the evening, Kristin told me that I had a phlegmatic personality. After she left, I looked it up and was flattered, but deep down I knew that wasn't me. It was more of who I try to be, but it wasn't me. I took a personality test...and here's what I got..I completely agree.

I am Sanguine/melancholy..but more sanguine
