Temperament Evolution

Berens Organizations have become increasingly desperate to find new ways to improve their adaptability to change. And the rate of change will only accelerate. The world has been flattened, we are a global, interconnected network and must interact with diverse sets of individuals, groups and communities. The models we use to try to assist organizations in this complex global environment therefore need to have built-in flexibility so they can grow and change-as everything does. Two major themes have emerged in the development and application of temperament theory. True Colors Personality Research and History.

True Colors Personality Research and History

Keirsey, author of the best-selling self-help book Please Understand Me, studied the work of psychologists Carl Jung, Katherine Briggs and Isabel Myers who theorized that all people fit into one of four broad categories of personality. Lowry recognized their potential to improve people’s lives, careers and relationships. So he set about developing a fundamental and universal way to package the information into practical guidelines that could be understood and easily applied by both children and adults alike. True Colors expands upon Keirsey’s four temperament types and simplifies personality and learning theory into “one of the easiest, most convenient ways of understanding and appreciating human behavior.”

A chart with descriptions of each Myers–Briggs personality type and the four dichotomies central to the theory The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions.[1][2][3] The MBTI was constructed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers.

History[edit] Katharine Cook Briggs began her research into personality in 1917. Upon meeting her future son-in-law, she observed marked differences between his personality and that of other family members. After the English translation of Jung's book Psychological Types was published in 1923 (first published in German in 1921), she recognized that Jung's theory was similar to, but went far beyond, her own.[1]:22 Briggs's four types were later identified as corresponding to the IXXXs, EXXPs, EXTJs and EXFJs.

Personality type

For the book by Jung, see Psychological Types. Four temperaments. Choleric, melancholic, sanguine, and phlegmatic temperaments Four temperaments is a proto-psychological theory that suggests that there are four fundamental personality types, sanguine (optimistic and social), choleric (short-tempered or irritable), melancholic (analytical and quiet), and phlegmatic (relaxed and peaceful).

Four temperaments

Most formulations include the possibility of mixtures of the types. The Greek physician Hippocrates (c. 460 – c. 370 BC) incorporated the four temperaments into his medical theories as part of the ancient medical concept of humorism, that four bodily fluids affect human personality traits and behaviors. Later discoveries in biochemistry have led modern medicine science to reject the theory of the four temperaments, although some personality type systems of varying scientific acceptance continue to use four or more categories of a similar nature.
