The Ancient Greeks believed that there were four main personality traits: sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic. These four temperaments greatly influence who we are, what we do and why we do it. The Greek physician Hippocrates believed that these four traits came about from an excess or deficiency of four different types of body fluids (humors): yellow bile, black bile, phlegm and blood. Each humor corresponds to a different temperament. So go ahead, take our specially made test and find out what Ancient Greek temperament describes you best.
