Default The Four Temperaments Personality Scale (test)

Just for fun. Based on the ancient Greek theory of the Four Humours. Scroll to bottom of page to "Begin assessment".

https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/O4TS/

Wiki excerpt:
Quote:
Most individuals tend to have aspects of their personality which identify with each of the four temperaments. However, there are usually one or two primary temperaments that are displayed at a significantly higher level. An individual could be any combination of the following four types.

Sanguine personality type is described primarily as being highly talkative, enthusiastic, active, and social. Sanguines tend to be more extroverted and enjoy being part of a crowd; they find that being social, outgoing, and charismatic is easy to accomplish. Individuals with this personality have a hard time doing nothing and engage in more risk seeking behavior.

Choleric individuals tend to be more extroverted. They are described as independent, decisive, goal-oriented, and ambitious. These combined with their dominant, result-oriented outlook make them natural leaders. In Greek, Medieval, and Renaissance thought, they were also violent, vengeful, and short-tempered.

Melancholic individuals tend to be analytical and detail-oriented, and they are deep thinkers and feelers. They are introverted and try to avoid being singled out in a crowd. A melancholic personality leads to self-reliant individuals who are thoughtful, reserved, and often anxious. They often strive for perfection within themselves and their surroundings, which leads to tidy and detail-oriented behavior.

Phlegmatic individuals tend to be relaxed, peaceful, quiet, and easy-going. They are sympathetic and care about others, yet they try to hide their emotions. Phlegmatic individuals are also good at generalising ideas or problems to the world and making compromises.

Mine seems fairly accurate too - except I expected much higher on Melancholic and definitely lower on Sanguine.

(I think my answer that I like "excitement" accounted for the higher Sanguine. I do have an adventurous streak and do like excitement -- but only in my imagination, lol.) <------ Edit/Correction: Wrong! Actually, I just looked at the test again and noticed there is no question about "excitement". I think there was such a question on another test I took recently. Sorry about that.

There are definitley always some questions in test like these to which the honest answer doesn't feel representative at all. People are contradictory creatures

I definitely relate to being preoccupied with the tragedy and cruelty of the world. I often view things through a lense of karma, not because I think the world exists in karmic balance, but because when I think a theoretical karmic balance is out of whack I feel stressed and want to lash out. I'm sure a psychologist could explain why this means I'm a prospective serial killer.

Your temperament is melancholic. The melancholic temperament is fundamentally introverted and thoughtful. Melancholic people often were perceived as very (or overly) pondering and considerate, getting rather worried when they could not be on time for events. Melancholics can be highly creative in activities such as poetry and art - and can become preoccupied with the tragedy and cruelty in the world. Often they are perfectionists. They are self-reliant and independent; one negative part of being a melancholic is that they can get so involved in what they are doing they forget to think of others.
knew it

edit: shut up charles lmao those are my exact stats

Luckily for you only men become serial killers. Well, we're the cool serial killers.
