(quote) Carol-737878 said: Wow! I was just thinking about this quality in the man I am seeing. His temperament is choleric/sanguine & I kind of expected him to present a slightly different demeanor--maybe kind of excitable. But he has shown a very calm way of being. When I gave him wrong directions one time & took him way out of his way, he just kind of sloughed it off & didn't show even annoyance much less anger.

I am melancholic/phlegmatic so I am normally low-key as well as being an introvert. Having someone who is always wanting to be active or who is reacting excitably to situations would put my nerves on edge.

So, my response is: yes! I do appreciate someone who presents a calm demeanor.
That's a man who has fought to gain control of his personality in my opinion. I have the same personality and the ability to quietly accept aggravating things does not come easily. Many kudos to him for gaining that mastery of self.

Well put, Marge and Stephanie! I can't stand guys who are never part of the group and look down at me for talking and enjoying a group atmosphere. That kind of man is either an egomaniac at his core or is simply too lazy for anything. Have some backbone and get on with life !

And I have no idea why the hyperlinks appeared. If a moderator would/could fix that I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

I like calm if it represents a peaceful heart and a confidence in navigating the chaos of the world. If it represents a lack of engagement with the world and people, it is not so endearing. But, in the latter case, calm might not be the best adjective for the demeanor.

Yes, there is calm and there is dead to everything going on. I would like calm in that every little thing doesn't set him off. There is also dead to emotion that nothing affects him at all, I don't need that kind of calm.

Calm, the "right kind" of calm is very nice so that when I get us lost for the (insert medium number here) he will take a deep breath and smile yet he is still capable of being appropriately upset without going overboard. We all get upset but if a guy is so calm that he feels he needs to suppress every time he is upset that would be scary for me.
