Different Duo.

There are four types of temperaments which many people use to understand themselves and each other better. It's a very interesting "thing" because as you do the test and when you got the answer, you find yourself very amused as you read the characteristics that best decribes you. I did it when I was away for a Leadership Retreat. So when I came back, of course I asked Koay to do it. Curious of his personality ma. He did it and boy, he was so amused. Everything he reads, he goes, "Yala, yala it's so me!"
So, in the end, we found out that he's a MELANCHOLY SANGUINE and I'm a SANGUINE CHOLERIC. I don't know if this is the "perfect" or "ideal" match. But one thing for sure, relationship is more than just having two ideal personality. It's so much more of commitment and taking the effort to understand each other. Giving and taking for sure play a big role. Anyways, here are the list of characteristics of those 4 personalities.
