Awakening the Leader In You

That is the title of the seminar I went to this weekend. It's part of the 5-session thing organized by NST & sponsored by Sime Darby.

Yesterday, the activities were a tad bit boring because the activities were just the group carrying it out and then pasting it up on the wall. No presenting. It was fun, don't get me wrong. It just wasn't the most involving or challenging, that's all.

Today, the activities were less group-based and much more individual participation. We did some personality profiling on ourselves. There were 4 categories; Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholy and Phlegmatic. I know some of the names are not so pleasant but that aside, the activity was quite fun. Everyone will get a combination of two personality groups except the following combinations; Sanguine-Melancholy or Melancholy-Sanguine and Choleric-Phlegmatic or Phlegmatic-Choleric

My combination was Sanguine-Choleric.

Sanguines are very talkative, cannot sit still, hyper-active and very fun to be around but sometimes don't know when to stop. While those who are Choleric like to take the lead, very objective in decision-making -- don't let emotion get in the way -- and have a competitive streak. However, they can be bossy and they are often labelled as laser-mouthed or short-tempered. But they cool down real quick. Phlegmatic tend to be rather indecisive and can't say 'no'. But, they are an easy-going bunch who are able to mingle in virtually all types of groups. Those in Melancholy are very much introverts or almost anti-social. And they don't express what they feel. They also tend to be moody. But they are very observant and most great thinkers are of the Melancholy group.

It was an awesome day. Next weekend should be the next session -- unless it gets postponed.

That's all for now. Au revoir.
