Temperament is the combination of inborn traits that subconsciously affects all our behavior ~Tim Lahaye


Temperament refers to a set of traits that organize your approach to the world around you. 

It’s an aspect of personality concerned with emotional personalities and reactions.


Temperament is inborn. That is, we were birthed with them. It could be hereditary from both parents or one of the parents.


The interesting part of it is that temperament can be modified from bad to good.

There are four basic temperaments.

1) Sanguine

2) Choleric

3) Melancholy

4) Phlegmatic


 Sanguines are fun, loving,  jovial. Most are extroverts. 


They are loquacious, having a very big heart, very friendly.

They are never lost for words.


 Choleric are hot, strong-willed. They hardly keep a smiling face, unlike the sanguines. 


They always stay focus. Most are introverts. Love minding their business.

Very intelligent.


 Melancholy is affected with great sadness or depression.

Melancholy people don’t talk much.

a melancholic person is typically very calm and peaceful despite his or her powerful innermost emotions. 

These individuals often choose to hide their perceptions, preferring to remain calm and quiet even during events that typically elicit extreme joy or anger in others.


 Phlegmatic individuals tend to be relaxed, peaceful, quiet, and easy-going.


  They are not easily fascinated to action or passion; calm; sluggish.

Phlegmatic individuals tend to be relaxed, peaceful, quiet, and easy-going. 

They are sympathetic and care about others, yet they try to hide their emotions.


 Phlegmatic individuals are also good at generalizing ideas or problems to the world and making compromises.

The above are the four various types of temperament.


But you can prevent your temperament(the weaknesses) from pulling you down by modifying it.

The ball is in your court.
