But for the purpose of this post, i will only limit myself to the core basics and general knowledge of the human temperaments from which you can determine the one that best describes you,and use it as a basis for choosing your career.Temperament is the character traits you’re born with, that was passed unto you by your parents.It is embedded in your genes and chromosomes,and controls everything you do in life. It is a combination of the biological(from your parents)and environmental factors.You’ll naturally possess the same character your parents possessed, and behave exactly the same way they behaved,except for some societal influences that might likely have a little effect as to altering those traits.There are four classes of temperaments: Sanguine,Choleric,Melancholy and Phlegmatic.The sanguines and cholerics are predominantly extroverts,but the sanguines are superextroverts.The sanguine is a very lively,buoyant,warm, hilarious and pleasure loving person.External impressions easily finds way to his heart.Emotional feelings rather than reflective thoughts predominates his mind,which consequently forms his decisions.He’s major weakness is indiscipline and unserious, and this affects him negatively in life. It can be curtailed if blended with a choleric or melancholy temperament.He detest routines or being confined.He’s an outgoing person,any job that allows him freedom and going to be with people,is perhaps the best for him.The choleric is a strong-willed,self-sufficient, practical,quick,active,independent and hot-tempered person.He’s very decisive and opinionated in nature,makes decision for himself and for others.He’s very sarcastic and does not care how you feel,he has the least developed emotional nature.He’s a natural leader,motivator,hard to please,full of activities,goals and ambition,but hardly completes any task.He hates details and analytical thinking.Any leadership role is good for him,but succeeds more when he works with a melancholy.The melancholy is the richest of all the temperaments. He’s very intelligent,analytical, self-sacrificing,gifted and a perfectionist with a very sensitive emotional nature But one major weakness he has,is low self-esteem,because of their perfectionist nature and hard to satisfy attitude.Any job that requires problem solving is good for him.The phlegmatic is calm, easygoing and never gets upset. But he lacks motivation. READ! temperamentcharacters
