The Core Emotional Issues of the Spleen Body Type are Guilt, Abandonment, Wrong
I am social, outgoing, personable and thrive on helping others. Social interaction is fulfilling to me, and I like being the center of attention. I am intense, forceful and passionate in my expressions and tend to overwhelm people. I like introducing people to nontraditional or alternative ways. I am tenacious, sticking with my focus until I get the results I want. I get a sense of security from detail clarification, and from a solid, organized structure.
I am a persistent achiever. I expect myself to succeed at everything I do, and if I don’t succeed at one thing I feel like a total failure. If I’m not positive I can succeed at something I will find ways to avoid it. I love to eat and rarely have digestion issues. I easily put on weight and have a strong frame that can carry it well. I don’t practice moderation with food. I am more people- than task-oriented, and work better with others than independently. Working with others is more motivating for me than working alone, and I’m more likely to complete something when others are involved.
I have a friendly, down to earth personality. I can be intense, tenacious, determined, and strong-willed. I am known to make things happen by disseminating energy. I have a strong ability to organize and delegate, making sure projects get done. These projects often involve food and social or group interaction. I stay on a subject until I get the results I want. I am most comfortable when I can solve a problem in a logical step-by-step fashion. I am known for providing the sustaining energy needed to get a job done right. I am happiest when I feel secure. Security needs to be tangible, such as a big house, money in the bank, a viable project, and/or having someone physically present. My strong mental focus makes me an excellent organizer, and I have the tenacity to see that even huge events come out right.
