Paul Kiplangat Chepkwony; Ruth W. Thinguri

Sanguine personality is one of the four fundamental personalities that we have. This group of people is believed to be optimistic and social. The other personalities are choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic. The objective of the study was to critically analyze the effects of sanguine personality on student’s interpersonal relationships in secondary schools in Kenya. To understand the personality, there is need to understand who a person is. A person is defined as a living creature like an animal but he or she is different from an animal because an animal acts on instinct whereas a person by nature is intelligent and free. A person learns many things like reading, walking or eating. Personality is defined as the totality of one’s behavior and character. Having understood what a person and personality is, further study was then done to critically analyze the effects of sanguine personality traits on student’s interpersonal relationship in schools. The study therefore would help the teachers to understand sanguine traits properly and if this trait plays any role as far as interpersonal relationship is concerned amongst students in secondary schools. From the solutions got from this study, it was recommended that teachers be trained as psychologist so that they would be in a position of guiding their students in the right direction. The government would then take the initiative to make sure that this course is made available in all the teacher training colleges and in the universities for those contemplating to be teachers in our country.
