Five Temperaments (Affection) Test

Quiz Image

Five Temperaments is a theory in psychology, which expands upon the Four Temperaments proposed in ancient medical theory. This is the only free test online which measures the area of need called Affection.

There are the three areas of interaction in the Five Temperaments, which behavior and personality are divided into: Inclusion (How much you generally include other people in your life and how much attention, contact, and recognition you want from others), Control (How much influence and responsibility you need, and how much you want others to lead and establish procedures and policies), and Affection; (How close and warm you are with others and to what extent you want others to show warmth and support to you). These three areas of need were taken from Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation (FIRO) and used in the Arno Profile System (APS) to measure the temperaments. This test will measure your Affection score.

  2. I'm emotionally well-rounded, and I "roll with the punches".

  9. Since I completely fail to communicate my desires for love, affection, and approval, I shyly wait for others to initiate it, but become very angry and have extreme loneliness and feelings of being unwanted if they do not give it.
  10. I have a tendency to develop deep relationships with people who are weak-willed and then resent their weakness, and I lack emotional development, having a hard time relating to the deep, tender feelings of others, since I view “hurt feelings” and tears as sentimental, entirely unnecessary, and useless trivia that are not called for.
  11. I use charm (behaving warmly and personably) to maintain control and power over deep, personal relationships, but I will harshly reject people and the love they show if they do not meet my terms or provide love according to my standards, and I compulsively place conditions on the love I give and receive.
  12. I...
