The Primary Temperaments IQ Matrix explores the four primary temperaments based on the work of John T. Cocoris. Temperaments are inborn traits that direct how we relate to others, how we respond to events, and how we react to the world and situations in general. A temperament is in other words our animal nature of how we are at the core of our being. These temperaments are built upon a specific set of traits, and these traits form the basis of four primary temperaments that are known as the Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic, and Melancholy temperaments. Each temperament comes with its own unique set of strengths and weaknesses that affect how people respond to the world around them. However, any one temperament isn’t necessarily better than others; it all depends on how a person chooses to live their life.
The first branch of the Primary Temperaments IQ Matrix defines what a temperament is all about. In addition to this the branch also highlights the value and importance of learning to accept and embrace the temperament we are naturally born with. Despite the strengths and weaknesses of each temperament we are naturally at our best when we embrace who we are fully without resistance.
The remaining four branches of the map explore the four primary temperaments including The Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic, and Melancholy temperaments. Within each of these four branches you will discover what makes each of these temperaments unique through an exploration of their natural tendencies and inclinations when relating with people and while interacting with the world.
Reading through this map and familiarizing yourself with these four primary temperaments will help you to identify which one of these four temperaments best describes how you are as a person at your core. Identifying your temperament type will reveal your natural strengths and weaknesses. You can then work on developing your strengths while addressing any weaknesses that might be hindering you in some way. In addition to this, you will be better able to recognize these temperaments within the people you interact with, and as such you will more effectively understand how to influence these people to your way of thinking.
