The Four Temperaments

  1. 1. The Four Temperaments The Four Temperaments’ personality system attempts to describe a person's overall attitude towards problems, other people, and life in general in a very broad way. They aren't meant to describe every detail of a person, such as their favorite flavor of ice cream or their mother's maiden name; rather, they just describe a person's overall attitude. Each person has one of these blends that fits how they are most of the time; it is constant throughout life, not a shifting mood.
  2. 2. The temperaments are a way of classifying peoples' emotional attitudes, the foundations of their personality. They apply in a very broad strokes way - that is, they are vague rather than specific and detailed - and make no attempt to identify every detail of a person's personality.
  3. 3. In a nutshell... people are boisterous, bubbly, chatty, openly emotional, social extroverts. The more people they're surrounded by, the better they feel, and they're not picky about who they get to know. They enjoy having many, many friends. While enjoy being around other people, it's largely because they enjoy the attention of others and feel good about the fact that they are not lonely. In modern society, you might see them as entertainers, singers, dancers, or perhaps simply as the energetic people at parties. In fantasy, they might be Bards.

  6. 6. In a nutshell... people are emotionally sensitive, perfectionistic introverts. The defining feature of a melancholic attitude is perfectionism. They are idealists who wish for things to be a certain way, and they get distressed when they are not. They hold themselves and others to unrealistically high standards, and get distressed when these standards are not met. The melancholic members of a pack may have been the analysts, the information gatherers. They scouted for potential danger, or for food, and reported back to the pack leader In current society, they often tend towards analytical roles such as scientists, analysts, programmers, logicians, and so on. In fantasy settings, they may be wizards or sages.

  9. 9. In a nutshell... Choleric people are the proud, extroverted 'alphas' of our species. people are leaders and directors. They seek to be in control of situations, to be on top, to be the best. This doesn't necessarily mean that they are all driven to reach the top of the corporate ladder or anything, or that they all want to have leadership roles, but in day-to-day interactions with other people, they have a tendency towards one-upsmanship. In current society, they often tend towards leadership roles, such as managers, politicians, captains, team leaders, and so on, though not necessarily. In fantasy, they might be the proud warriors, the esteemed Kings. http://temperaments.fighunter.com/?page=choleric

  12. 12. In a nutshell... people are meek, submissive introverts who live to please others. do not act as if they are better than others. They are eager to please, and quick to give in to others rather than asserting their own desires as if they're the most important. They take the path of least resistance whenever possible. They so desperately wish for peace, for everyone to get along, and to avoid conflict at all costs. They may not stand out, but without them, nothing would work. They are the cooks, the cleaners, the quiet office drones, the redshirts, the white mages. http://temperaments.fighunter.com/?page=phlegmatic
