As stated in Part 1 there are four fundamental personality varieties; sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholy. Hippocrates identified and labeled these four basic personality sorts over 2000 years ago. Since then many other theories have been developed. Psychologists, behavior scientists, organization firms and marketing businesses among other people have used an understanding of the personality styles to inform their work.
The traits of choleric personality will be discussed in this write-up. Yet another descriptive name for the choleric could be the achiever. Folks with this sort of style are extroverts and optimists. They are born leaders and can be accused of being bossy. They like to have control.
Individuals with this strong personality feel quickly, move quickly and can obtain several things at the same time. Typically people with these dominant traits are said to be a man /ladies on a mission. They are extremely task orientated and can appear unfeeling. Studies estimate about 3 percent of the popular are choleric.
Please Note: There is no proper or wrong personality style
Most folks have a mixture of personality traits. Normally there is one dominant set of traits and then a number of secondary traits. The choleric individual can usually have sanguine or melancholy traits. It is unlikely they will have phlegmatic traits as they are opposite.

Just to recap from article one there are quite a few distinct interior design styles. But to make it less complicated to work out which style is most suitable for which personality I have narrowed the styles into four broad categories. I have given every style a name; Ethnic Cultural, Mini Modern, Enviro/Natural and Standard/Classic.
The interior design style most suitable to the person with a dominance of choleric traits is the mini modern style. This is a non fuss style, comfy with a minimum of furniture and accessories. The objects selected are generally easy to maintain.
This style would suit the choleric person since items can be swiftly selected. If the choleric individual was a colour it could well be red. Red is the fastest moving colour in terms of catching the eye. It is thought to be the very first colour babies see. Red is exciting, aggressive bold but can be overpowering and irritate. The choleric individual could be seen the same way. Green is the opposite of red just as choleric and phlegmatic are opposite.
This quote from the book Colour by Marshall Editions Limited “When the film director Antonioni had a factory restaurant painted red although shooting the Red Desert the film workers became argumentative but settled down again when it was repainted green” highlights the power of red and the impact of colour selection.
Neutral or colourless colours can be used with any colour. Black is the negation of colour and has maximum darkness. It implies weight and solidity. It is typically regarded as a sophisticated smart colour. Grey spans between the two extremes of white and black. Pure grey is rare in nature but concrete, cement and metallic colours speak of human endeavor machinery and business. White has maximum lightness can be heavenly, pure or clinical and can trigger glare.
The minimalist style of interior design has been in vogue for a number of years. Neutrals used with maybe one or two bold colours has been a well-known choice with this style of décor. A criticism of this style; it can appear bare and uninteresting. Maybe the phlegmatic and sanguine person feels this way as they tend to be men and women orientated and like to select items to make individuals really feel comfortable; at home.
If you have a strong bold outgoing non fuss choleric style of personality the mini modern interior design style could well be the style for you. Warm colours for example red utilized the neutrals could make you really feel comfortable. But as the factory restaurant story above illustrates red need to be utilized with caution.
