Introduction to The 4 Temperaments System

The 4 Temperaments System is possibly the oldest personality typing system known to man, being created by Ancient Greek philosophers and with each type coinciding with one of The 4 Humors. The system has evolved and changed since than to have many different versions that people may know of, and while this version is the one I'm writing about, there are many other adaptations of this system that are just as official.

You may be wondering at this point, "why do we still care about such an old system when we have much more recent systems to use?" Well, there are two main reasons. 1, it is VERY easy to type with, and 2, it is fun to carry on the tradition that is this system. So with that in mind, let us dive into this system, and what makes it tick.
