Which Of The Four Major Temperaments Are You?

You got: Choleric

Ambitious and strong-willed, you function best when you’re the one in charge of any given situation. You struggle to work with people you do not respect, and it’s difficult for you to hide your true feelings about other people. You thrive on completing tasks, and you tend to prioritize efficiency above all else. Though your confidence and domineering nature can sometimes come across as intimidating, people are always willing to please you and win you over.

You got: Sanguine

People always find your company to be immensely pleasurable, and you always bring cheer through a seemingly endless reserve of optimism. You have a vast imagination, and though you are constantly full of ideas you do at times struggle to follow through with all of them. You are a risk-taker in many ways, and you are always willing to embrace those who need it most. You thrive on the energy of people, and you are able to make friends with relative ease.

You got: Melancholic

Though you’re intensely private, your emotions are most strongly triggered by empathy for the people around you — others’ joys become your joys, and others’ sorrows become your sorrows. You dedicate a lot of time and thought to the subjects you are passionate about, and you are very careful about every decision you make. People might see you as a perfectionist, but you simply crave excellence in all that you do.

You got: Phlegmatic

You’re quiet, introspective, and grounded in reality. You exude a peaceful radiance, and patience is an ultimate virtue to you. You lead a life rich in the arts, and you put a firm emphasis on holistic health through a strong mind, body, and spirit. You tend to value few strong friendships over many, and though you lead a private life, people find you faithful and reliable. At times you appear overly cautious, but when you make a commitment you always follow through.
