You and difficulties
Your main problem is slowness, but at the same time it makes you incredibly strong. If there are any unforeseen circumstances, problems or force majeure, you are able to analyze the situation absolutely calmly and make an informed decision that will be the only right one at the moment.

And it is true that you are tense for a long time, but you do it in a charming and qualitative way.

However, if you have done something before or have experience, then you will quickly perform this kind of task exactly as the situation requires.

Besides slowness, there can be another disadvantage for many: When a phlegmatic is asked to do something, he will do exactly what is required of him, and beyond or beyond that he will not exert himself. Therefore, it is necessary to overestimate the demands on themselves.
You and others
You are very stable and balanced in communication. Stress is foreign to you and you are not familiar with it, but of course you are human and give way to emotions, although not as pronounced as others. In communication you are not verbose and are very reasonable.

In fact, you do not need a large number of people around you and therefore create a small circle of communication. Do not be offended by those around you, but many people may be annoyed by your leisurely speech and slowness in business.
You and your performance
Sometimes it is very difficult to make a decision, although if you have made a decision, then you automatically have a plan and you act clearly and move towards the intended goal.

You love order and therefore try not to leave your comfort zone and familiar surroundings. Higher power and hyperactive people are difficult and tiring for you.

Employers love you for finishing what you started and achieving your goal no matter what.
You and your studies
But you are not so steady with your studies. You find it very difficult to engage in the learning process, if you remember your slowness, you will "sneak past" diploma and project work for a long time.

Therefore, when planning your calendar, immediately set the time for momentum.

Remember, once you focus and get in the right frame of mind, there's no stopping you. You'll make up for lost time quickly if you approach the task carefully and master the material.
Professions for your type
You are the most efficient person (we are talking about the type of temperament, do not relax). You can really do even the most monotonous work efficiently for a very long time.

In fact, you can work in any field and be quite successful there, because analytical skills, a cold mind and prudence are required periodically in any position and in any field.
