What are the types of temperaments

Temperament - the four personality types for the job test

A person's temperament describes their behavior. Every person is different. Each of us has our own personal strengths and weaknesses in behavior. But there are people who are similar to us, while others are not at all similar to us. Some are very open, while others are more reserved. Many often listen to your feelings, while others tend to trust your mind. In short: we have behaviors that are more or less important in one profession or another. For centuries, philosophy and psychology have tried to define the characteristics of people and to justify their behavior. These two sciences developed the theory of temperament for this purpose.

The theory of temperament comes from the work of psychologists such as Jung, Myers Briggs and Dr. Keirsey. Myers Briggs published the MBTI Temperament Test, which Dr. Keirsey further developed and published. This test, with which you can determine your own temperament, serves as the basis for the professional aptitude test of career counseling 24. Many qualities that can be determined by the test indicate your professional abilities.



History of temperament types
Anyone who speaks of the four temperaments of sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic is mostly unaware that they are using ancient type designations that were used by Greek doctors and philosophers as early as the 5th century BC. Even then, thinkers and researchers felt the need to trace the differences in human nature back to biological and cosmological causes.
