Welcome to the four-temperaments personality profile. The test is easy to take, it is broken into two parts; strengths, and weaknesses. For each question you will be presented with four words. Simply select the one word you feel describes you best. You may only choose one of the four. Sometimes you will feel that more than one of the four choices fits you, and other times you might find that none of them seem like you. In these cases you should try to select the one that fits you the most, or the one you feel most drawn to instinctively.

It may help to think of what you were like as a child and what you would have answered then. If you still have trouble, ask people who know you very well - preferably a family member or best friend - or try to think of how someone else might describe you. Ready? Let's begin!
