ď śAncient Greeks observed that people are different from one another, another but you could find common features in speech and behavior that might g be worth sorting g out. ď śThis need gave rise to a very famous and widely used partition into 4 types of temperaments.

He angrily reacts and sometimes even overreacts to ap powerful stimulus. ď śThe only consolation is that, in time, he becomes calm and resolves the situation with the composure and calmness that is so typical for him.


Does the phlegmatic get bothered by anything? Another type of temperament is a phlegmatic, who doesn doesn´tt get easily bothered by anything and sails through g life with a certain apathy. p y Is there someone in your vicinity who doesn´t worry about much and doesn´t really ll care about b t anything? thi ?
