Exploring the many fascinating facets of human personalities

Four Temperaments Test

The Four Temperaments divide personalities into four basic attitudes in a broad-strokes way. They are paired together to give a temperament 'blend'. There are twelve of these blends!
For each of the following pairs of words, please choose a value on the five-point scale based on how much each word fits or appeals to you. For example, if the left one fits but the right one doesn't at all, select the leftmost value. If both or neither fit, select the middle. And so on!
