Secangkir Pengenalan Kepribadian dari Florence Littauer

Baru saja saya mengikuti tes kepribadian yang saya dapat dari sebuah situs menarik, Tes kepribadian ini merupakan tes yang sudah diketahui secara luas diseluruh dunia lewat buku karangan Florence Littauer yang berjudul “Personality Plus”. Dari buku itu, dapat diketahui bahwa secara umum manusia bisa dibagi atas 4 watak yaitu Sanguinis (dilambangkan dengan musim semi) yang ceria, spontan, humoris, tetapi egois; Melankolis (dilambangkan dengan musim gugur) yang rapi, penuh kasih, idealis, tapi pemurung; Koleris (dilambangkan dengan musim panas) yang berkemauan kuat, pemberani, mandiri, tapi pemarah; Plegmatis (dilambangkan dengan musim salju) yang setia, damai, tenang, tetapi malas. Nah, dari tes itu saya mendapatkan hasil yang demikian:


Your personality is Melancholy Phlegmatic

Melancholy Strength:14 Weakness:18 80%

Phlegmatic Strength:4 Weakness:1 13%

Sanguine Strength:1 Weakness:1 5%

Choleric Strength:1 Weakness:0 3%

Wow, ternyata hasil saya adalah 80% melankolis, 13% plegmatis, 5% sanguinis, dan 3% koleris. Cukup mengejutkan karena awalnya saya berpikir saya orang plegmatis. Tapi ketika lebih jauh lagi dipikir, saya kira mungkin ada benarnya juga. Hampir semua sifat – sifat orang melankolis mereprentasikan diri saya seutuhnya. Sementara itu mengenai sifat sanguinis dan koleris, saya rasa saya hampir tidak memiliki semuanya. Berikut ini adalah deskripsi mengenai kelebihan dan kekurangan dari keempat kepribadian yang diambil dari situs yang telah saya sebutkan diatas.

Walaupun watak manusia memang mungkin bisa dibagi atas 4 kelompok seperti diatas, tetapi saya pribadi tetap berpendapat bahwa setiap manusia berbeda dengan cara mereka masing – masing. Ya, karena disamping ini, saya pun sebagai muslim juga melihat manusia dari sisi makhluk milik Allah, dimana semua takdir dan kehendak merupakan keputusan-Nya. Dalam hal ini takdir sangat berpengaruh terhadap lingkungan manusia dan lingkungan berpengaruh terhadap kepribadian masing – masing orang. Apakah sebenarnya ke-4 kepribadian diatas tadi merupakan bawaan sejak lahir atau lingkungan yang berpengaruh besar terhadap kepribadian diatas? Saya masih harus mencari tahu.
