TEMPERAMENT INFLUENCES EVERYTHING YOU DO.

A temperament is a person’s nature which automatically affects his manner of thinking and behavior. It can also be analyzed as traits we inherited from our parents that affects the mind and emotions. This helps you know how unique you are from your sibling, a colleague or friend. A more distinct trace of one’s temperament can be seen amongst identical twins. Where one may be more active than the other in different activities. Your temperament affects your eating, driving, dressing, studying, communication and even your discipline habits. Which makes our temperaments very vital in our daily lives.

Almost everyone is interested in human behavior, from the way we think, feel, respond, explode and act the way we do. And the best solutions to these needs have been characterize into four basic temperaments which are; the Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholy and Phlegmatic. However, these temperaments work hand in hand. This is because, research shows that no one can be only one temperament, since everyone has a different home, educational and relation background. You also do not get affected by every positive or negative aspect of the temperament you are. This means, you can be a Sanguine and Choleric person ”SanChlor” or a Melancholy and phlegmatic person “MelPhleg”. And as such, every temperament has strengths and weaknesses.
