How My Predominant Temperaments Interact
Choleric is red.
Melancholic is blue.
Supine is pink.

In Control:
I desperately want to be in a leadership position in order to lead others to my quixotic visions, but others must approach me as the leader.

In Inclusion:
I will wait for someone to approach me or I will tell others about how amazing I am and listen to others in order to gain a better understanding of them.

In Affection
I will show my affection by performing tasks and overall reliability in the hopes that I will be recognized for it so that I can take control later on.

In Blogging (I know this isn't a technical category. Deal with it.)
I voice my opinions and innovative ideas rather bluntly, sometimes "aggressively" and assert them with detail as needed with my analytical approach so that others will approach me.



  1. You seem to like knowing where all of your traits come from. I do not hold a very strong interest in temperaments but you make it understandable and intriguing. I recognize several of those traits in my self. My primary temperament is melancholic and my secondary temperament is choleric.

    1. No wonder we think alike (for the most part). In you, melancholic seems to be more predominant than it is in me (I am more choleric). Specifically, I am melancholic-compulsive, choleric-compulsive, and supine-compulsive. "Compulsive" means that I fulfill my driving needs at all costs, even to my detriment. Since all of my temperaments are compulsive, the driving needs associated with all of them combine and conflict. The combination of these temperaments at least in my case, leads to something along the lines of "I want you to do what I want and do it exactly how I want it to be done, but you must read my mind and know what that is." In other words, I am very temperamental (pun intended) person.


Comment! I won't know what you have to say unless you say it.
