Understanding Your Baby’s Personality

You will have an easier time handling your baby if you understand his personality. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to understand a baby’s personality. Babies are complex beings. They don’t express themselves in the same manner as fully grown persons, and that makes it very hard to understand their personalities. Their communication is mainly of the non verbal variety. And even then it is not always easy to decipher the non verbal clues they give, much less to create a personality profile based on those clues. Furthermore, here you are dealing with a personality that is still developing. It is not like you are dealing with a fully developed and well defined personality. Yet in spite of all these challenges, it is still possible to understand your baby’s personality, if you really pay attention to him.

Some of the ways in which you can understand your baby’s personality include:

  1. By watching how the baby reacts to other individuals
  2. By watching how the baby reacts to new experiences
  3. By studying how the baby expresses his needs

In the end, you may come to discover that your baby is of the sanguine or choleric personality. Or you may discover that your baby is of the phlegmatic or melancholic personality. This would help you in figuring out how to handle the baby now, and in the future as he grows.

As we have mentioned though, it will only be possible for you to understand your baby’s personality if you spend quality time with the baby, and watch him closely. In other words, it won’t be possible for you to understand your baby’s personality if you can’t find quality time to spend with him. Like if, for instance, on a typically day, you spend 3 hours watching movies, 3 hours browsing around the internet, 2 hours shopping, 3 hours chatting with friends… you will end up with very little time to spend with the baby. You will end up being unable to even find enough time to complete something as simple as the dgcustomerfirst survey. And in as much as you can’t understand your baby’s personality, it will be very hard for you to handle him in the right manner.
