For example, Childs says that Sanguines aren't easy to recognize by their body types. Maybe so, but just look for their constantly open mouths (usually always talking) and expressive gesturing with their hands and arms. Another example is in the section on "Growing older with your temperament," Childs says that "Choleric people keep their figures as a rule, for they tend to remain active and burn up those excess calories. Sanguines too generally retain their regular build, but with the standard concession to that 'spare tyre' and facial lines.

Melancholic people are emotionally sensitive, perfectionistic introverts. Many melancholics wish to learn and to understand, to know the details of every little thing, because to be ignorant is to stray from perfection. This leads many of them to be overanalytical, neurotic worriers.

This book is a refreshing treatment of the ancient doctrine of the four temperaments: choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic, and melancholic.

book by Gilbert Childs.

The classical concept of the four temperaments—the four personality types characterized as the fiery choleric, the airy sanguine, the watery phlegmatic and the earthy melancholic—has been revered by many significant thinkers over the ages. In a refreshing treatment, Dr. Childs demonstrates that this ancient doctrine remains relevant to our modern lives. He shows how we can recognize the temperaments in others, as well as in ourselves, and how to understand the ways in which they function. Understanding their influences can boost personal development and help improve interpersonal relationships. Conversational in tone and easily digestible, this book features fascinating discussions of the relationships between adults of various temperaments. Childs reviews matters of compatibility in partnership, family and workplace situations, liberally spicing his commentary with amusing examples of likely scenarios. He investigates the origins and manifestations of the temperaments in both their psychological and physiological aspects. Also included is a section on the temperaments of children, along with helpful and practical advice on dealing with individual issues.

Great book yet somewhat advanced. Without 20+ years of studying the 4 temperaments, I would have struggled with Childs' book were I a beginner. If you're new to studying the 4 temperaments, check out "Personality Plus" by Florence Littauer and her many other wonderful books. Also books by Tim LaHaye on the temperaments, although his emphasis on Christianity can be a little heavy going at times. However, LaHaye's material is well worth the read, especially on temperament blends. Also look into "The Four Temperaments" by Randy Rolfe, J.D., M.A.

Experience and observation show me I don't agree with everything Childs writes in his book about the body type for the temperaments, but there's enough solid information here to warrant prominently placing his book on my temperament shelf.

For example, Childs says that Sanguines aren't easy to recognize by their body types. Maybe so, but just look for their constantly open mouths (usually always talking) and expressive gesturing with their hands and arms. You can usually hear them before you see them!

What's refreshing in Childs' book is he presents information here I have not seen mentioned in any other book on the 4 temperaments yet my experience and observation have proved the material true.

For example, "All children up to the age of ten or eleven can be expected to show typical characteristics associated with the sanguine temperament. Whatever their main temperament is, or their secondary one, they will be ... overlaid by a pattern of sanguine traits." Another example is in the section on "Growing older with your temperament," Childs says that "Choleric people keep their figures as a rule, for they tend to remain active and burn up those excess calories. Sanguines too generally retain their regular build, but with the standard concession to that 'spare tyre' [tire] and facial lines. Phlegmatics will almost certainly put on weight, very often in spite of a few half-hearted efforts to retain their rounded charms. Melancholics tend to become even more wiry and spare, and their already lean features more lined and wrinkled." As mentioned,"All children, right up to the stage of adolescence ... show unmistakable signs of it being overlaid ... by sanguine characteristics ... It is clear that the adolescent stage carries choleric overtones ... Middle age is characterized by traits that are melancholic in nature ... As we get older still, it is the phlegmatic nature in all of us that takes over."

The chapters on the workplace and compatibility amongst the temperaments are excellent.

If you're seriously interested about learning more about the 4 temperaments, then Childs' book is a definite must-have!

Interesting book , just remember this came from the Greeks, the same ones that believed in spontaneous generation. Still an interesting read
Bloodray
Great resource! I used it as a text.
Hugighma
Very good book. Interesting and easy to read and understand. Very well written and answers a lot of questions one might have about the different temperments.
Cyregaehus
Easy to understand, straight to the point without a whole lot of irrelevant information .

great book by rudolf steiner and is the best one of its kind

mommy like it
What's different about this book are the temperaments themselves (choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic - instead of the standard Myers-Briggs type) and learning how to "guess" temperaments by observing body-types and favorite colors. What's missing are "quizzes" to help figure out what temperament you are and helpful hints on working with others of different temperaments. The information is presented in an easy-to-read conversational style. I recommend it as a supplement to other books on temperaments (my favorites being "Kids, Parents and Power Struggles" and "Raising your Spirited Child") and not as your only source for information on this subject.
