Four Temperaments Test

This test should help you find your most likely temperament blend! The result won't say what your temperaments definitely are, though the more times you take it, the more likely you are to end up with an accurate result.

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 most of the time. Don't base your answers on your current mood! It really is important to think generally in order to get a meaningful result. It helps to think "which of these words would other people most use to describe me?"
