Steps to the Keirsey classic temperament mapping
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”.
