    I've noticed that, as a whole, INFJ's are Mel-Phlegs. At the INTP forum, they're mostly Phleg-Mel, and at the INTJ forum, they're mostly Mel-Chlors or Chlor-Mels.

    Lol! Ok, I will drink your milkshake...
    When I took this test years ago I was almost dead center between Mel & Phleg. Guess I'm getting more relaxed in my old age...

    Mel - 33%
    Phleg - 53%
    Sang - 13%
    Cho - 3%

    This site here proposes the relationships differently: http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/Warfield2.html
    Chloeric - NT
    Melancholy - SJ
    Sanguine - SP
    Phlegmatic - NF

    This site here proposes the relationships are different again: http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Keirsey-Temperament-Sorter
    Chloeric - NF
    Melancholy - SJ
    Sanguine - SP
    Phlegmatic - NT

    This site here has a table at the bottom that identifies which MBTI types relate to the four temperaments as per the test in this thread. The site is no longer available, so you need to see it in google cache mode - http://72.14.235.132/search?q=cache...gChlor+MelChlor+INTJ&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=5&gl=au

    I'm sure he's right off base with those correlations, NT is choleric. This is the system of typing I grew up with and one of the reasons I thought I was INTJ (Ch/Me) for so long, the conclusion I've come to is it's best not to mix different typing systems, it's just not that straight forward.

    What I'm sure of is ENTJ is pretty much straight Ch, ENTP is Ch/Sa, INTJ is Ch/Me, INTP is Ch/Ph and INFJ is Me/Ph.


    Thought this was funny, also should describe Choleric & Phlegmatic enough to see ain't no way NTs are Ph and SJs are Ch;

    I agree with what I've bolded. It's like trying to correlate MBTI and enenagram - it's just not that straight forward.

    Having said that, I agree with your assessment of the ENTJ, ENTP, INTJ and INTP. I tend to see SJ as melancholy and as such the INFJ as Me/Ph.

    May have read me before I edited :D

    The emotional aspect of Melancholies confused me for a while but they are the rule makers, ISFJ are some of the most emotional people around so I guess it fits leaving NFs are Phlegmatics.

    Surprised people weren't arguing over the NT REALIST part.

    Phlegmatic

    Erich Adickes, Eduard Spränger, Ernst Kretschmer, and Erich Fromm all theorized on the four temperaments (with different names) and greatly shaped our modern theories of temperament. Hans Eysenck was one of the first psychologists to analyze personality differences using a psycho-statistical method (factor analysis), and his research led him to believe that temperament is biologically based. The factors he proposed in his book Dimensions of Personality were Neuroticism (N) which was the tendency to experience negative emotions, and the second was Extraversion (E) which was the tendency to enjoy positive events, especially social ones. By pairing the two dimensions, Eysenck noted how the results were similar to the four ancient temperaments.

    A phlegmatic person is calm and unemotional. Phlegmatic means "pertaining to phlegm", corresponds to the season of winter (wet and cold), and connotes the element of water. While phlegmatics are generally self-content and kind, their shy personality can often inhibit enthusiasm in others and make themselves lazy and resistant to change. They are very consistent, relaxed, rational, curious, and observant, making them good administrators and diplomats. Like the sanguine personality, the phlegmatic has many friends. However the phlegmatic is more reliable and compassionate; these characteristics typically make the phlegmatic a more dependable friend.


    This temperament type was created and is the intellectual property of these fellows. Therefore the definition belongs to these fellows. It doesn't matter that others come along later and completely misunderstand things, because they've already defined it.

    Calm, Rational, Relaxed, Curious, Observant, Lazy.
    NT Realist.
