Came up with this simple step by step approach to mapping Keirsey to the classic temperaments, from remembering awhile back, a leading theorist who was on a list, and I was explaining the correlation, and the person felt Keirsey doesn’t correspond to the temperaments (the way the Interaction Styles do).
But the matchup is very simple, from looking at the original temperament factors.
Galen’s system was based on hot/cold and moist/dry.
Hot/cold became I/E, which is apart of the Interaction Styles. So moist/dry would correspond to informing/directing. “Directive” communication can be described pretty well as “dry”; even moreso than [necessarily] literal “directing”.
The problem is the Keirsey groups. He linked them based on characteristics rather than Galen’s factors.
The artistic SP was “Sanguine”, the more serious SJ was “Melancholic”, the more “emotional” NF was “Choleric” and the “calm” NT was “Phlegmatic”.

It didn’t go well when you were a little tyke.
You assumed that the other 5 year olds loved reading the dictionary as much as you did.
You assumed that all 7 year olds preferred a vacation to NASA over a trip to Disneyworld.
You assumed that the other kids would want to play your intricate games and learn your secret codes rather than play yet another round of Candyland.
You didn’t know that you had a rainforest mind. Maybe you still don’t.
That’s why I’m here.
Relationships can be tricky when you have a rainforest mind.
Have you noticed?
You think you’re explaining your ideas quite thoroughly and clearly. But your listeners aren’t listening. They’re lost in your creative leaps and poetic language. Or they don’t really care about the future of the electric car. Or they think your enthusiasm for mycelium is weird.

A fun way to encourage our kids to hide God’s Word in their hearts is to give them a Scripture Doodle to colour. There are many Bible verse doodle colouring pages, but I wanted to concentrate on finding those where you colour in the actual words and letters of the Bible verse. Here is part 4 of our Scripture doodle series. Once again, there are plenty here to choose from and also an easy how-to if you would like to have a go at making your own… enjoy! 🙂

Aspergers is not a disorder. It is not an ailment. It is not a malfunction. Aspergers is not equivalent to an eating disorder or to substance abuse, which imply a treatment plan, such as therapy or 12-step, to support and correct the behavior.
Aspergers is not a state of confusion or disarray.
Aspergers is a neurological difference. A difference that is not better or worse, but simply not ordinary and exists outside the familiarity of mainstream’s indoctrinated interpretation of ‘normal.’ Aspergers is a form of high-intelligence…

After several weeks of juggling various projects and generally bumbling the whole executive functioning thing, I’m finally getting around to transforming my presentation on neurologically mixed relationships into a series of blog posts. And I say posts, plural, for a few reasons.
For one thing, my presentation was just over an hour long. No one wants to wade through that wall of text. Plus, the actual content that I wanted to cover in the presentation would have taken an entire day or more to go through. Now that I can include everything, I will—it’s my blog, goshdarnit!
This post is an intro to the metaphor of neurotype as culture. In the following posts, we’ll begin the more in-depth dissection of autistic and neurotypical culture, and how these “cultural” differences affect relationships.
As a child, I assumed relationships were something that just happened.
I knew that if a…
