phlegmatic (adjective) fleg-MAT-ik

Unemotional, difficult to arouse.

Mr Richardson, NSW Hansard, 30 April 2003. NSW Hansard

As the phlegmatic Fred Thompson plummeted in the polls and made a lackluster appearance at the forum, a juiced Mr. Giuliani preened in front of an audience that loved him.

Maureen Dowd, The New York Times, 17 October 2007. New York Times

The critics said: 'The English, normally phlegmatic about art, greeted the event with ecstasies of Tutankhamunophilia.' (Time Magazine)
