God Made the Five Temperaments

God made five temperaments.
Choleric, melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic,
And supine.

He could have made us all choleric,
All eager to lead,
But impatient that no one would follow.

We could be all be melancholic,
Always striving for perfection,
But locked in a perpetual cycle of failure.

The human race could be all sanguine,
Enthusiastic and fun-loving,
But unproductive.

Everyone could be phlegmatic,
Peaceful and placid,
But with little zest for life.

The people of the world, if made all supine,
Would be eager to serve,
But unable to find someone to give our gifts to.

God made five temperaments
And everyone has some of each temperament
In differing quantities.

Everyone has a temperament
That God made in His image.
He made each of them for a purpose.

He made cholerics to lead
And set an example for His people.
Melancholics glorify Him
With their talents.
He made sanguines to love all the world,
Phlegmatics to labor faithfully,
And supines to serve a loving Master.

God made the five temperaments;
He made them in His Image.
Choleric, melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic
And supine He created them.


  1. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27
