Personalities in the escape room

Many times we need a life situation different than an ordinary one to really get to know the people we think we know. It can be monitored in really extreme situations who our friend, colleague are. Who can we count on, and also what hidden values ​​we have that we have not guessed about so far.

Many times we need a life situation different than an ordinary one to really get to know the people we think we know. It can be monitored in really extreme situations who our friend, colleague are. Who can we count on, and also what hidden values ​​we have that we have not guessed about so far.

 

"You can learn more about others in an hour of play than in a year of conversation."

Platon

Personality types in the escape rooms

 

There are many varieties of personality types, whatever they may be, each type has its own strengths and weaknesses. It may be interesting to observe which of your acquaintances belongs to which group.

 

That is why we will give you some info on how you can easily identify the four most basic personality types during playing in an the escape game.

 

According to the most basic four categories from Jung, we encounter the following personality types:

• sanguine

• choleric

• melancholic

• phlegmatic

Of these, the first two are extroverted, i.e., outward-turning, and the second two are introverted, i.e., inward-facing.

 

Sanguine

 

Sanguine people are usually cheerful, talkative people who like to be in the center of attention. Their confidence is their strength and that they treat people well. They are usually enthusiastic and resourceful. Their flammable nature, on the other hand, is sometimes harmful: they do not like monotonous, enduring tasks, if they are confronted with such, they will devote all their creativity to avoiding it.

 

Famous sanguine: Bill Clinton, Magic Johnson

During the game, our sanguine acquaintances have a good chance to sparkle their creativity and the exploratory instinct emerges from them. There is a good chance a sanguine will be the one who first persuaded you to play an escape game, since he’s the one who’s happy to try new things. It stimulates him to amaze others with his ideas and will probably bring the team closer to the solution. It is important that he gets the recognition he thinks he deserves in the meantime, because if that doesn’t happen, he could easily just sit around in a corner.

 

Choleric

 

Choleric people, like sanguine, live outward, extroverted. Complementing the weakness of their sanguine counterparts, they are steady and persistent. They are born leaders, but they often lack the charm of sanguineists in their relationships with people. They are accurate, precise and quickly see the connections. They do not allow to be taken away by their emotions, they are able to think with a cold head even in a stressful situation.

 

Famous choleric: Napoleon, Bill Gates, Michael Jordan

Most likely, the team leader will be a choleric player. He has all the abilities to do this and can be put to good use in extreme situations. He will be able to discover the connections and coordinate the tasks of the team members. He will want to break the track record or achieve some similar, spectacular success. As time goes on, he becomes more and more impatient and can easily offend others. The results will probably be brought or squeezed by him, but a good mood is almost certainly not.

 

Melancholic

Melancholic people are perhaps even more characterized by creativity than sanguine people are, but in return, they do not expect to be the center of attention. Their creativity is coupled with consideration and they only speak when they are already sure of something - even then only softly. There are many artists among them because they tend to daydream. Many times, they do not have enough self-confidence, so their thoughts and ideas remain in them forever.

 

Famous melancholic: Albert Einstein, Vincent Van Gogh, Eeyore

 from Winnie the Pooh

Melancholy players are very good team players; they pay attention to the others. Sometimes it just feels good to play with them. They will be the ones who stumble in silence, within themselves, and find out how to solve a part of a task. It is worth asking them sometimes what they think about before they completely surrender to daydreaming. They will not seem so motivated, but meanwhile the gears are working quietly in their brains.

 

Phlegmatists

Phlegmatists are calm, serene, and often seem like they have no emotions at all. They are light, funny, and sympathetic. They do not take anything really seriously, so it’s damn hard to motivate them. It is almost impossible to persuade them to do what they do not want to do. Their motivation is a difficult task, they try to avoid what they do not like at all costs.

 

Famous phlegmatists: Keanu Reeves, Tim Duncan

In a stressful situation, the lightness and humor of phlegmatic players come in handy, with which they are able to relieve tension. They are not overly interested in the game itself, so do not even expect them to take on the lion’s share of the work together. Only inn one case, they will be motivated, which can come in very handy: they will cut through the Gordian knot just so they don’t have to bother with it much.
