Got to deal with a lot of Sanguines!!!

We just had our first-ever Pylon IPR last weekend. It was so F-U-N!!! Though it was exhausting,still all our efforts are paid off. One of the activities we had there was knowing our personality profile through taking a test. The test revealed that I am a Perfect Melancholic type. Here is the result of the test:

Your personality is Melancholy Phlegmatic.
Melancholy Strength:9 Weakness:14
57%
Phlegmatic Strength:7 Weakness:4
28%
Sanguine Strength:4 Weakness:1
13%
Choleric Strength:0 Weakness:1
3%

So, now, I'm expecting worse things to come... Oh, and by the way, I'm like the third one in this picture. I am the indecisive, confused person...
