So I'm new here, it's my first thread... so don't hate me if this topic has been exhausted. Anybody interested in Hippocrates Temperament system? (It seems to have gone outta style). It's the oldest form of psychology apparently, and I personally find it to be the most accurate, probably because it's very basic.
For those who don't know, Hippocrates is based on 5 personalities: Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic, Supine (new addition) and the Melencholy. Once you've determined which fits you best, you choose a secondary temperament and then you've got your type. According to mom (who knows me inside & out) I'm a PhlegMel, which I had thought myself.
The annoying thing is, I've taken many (unnofficial) MBTI tests and have come out with results that don't always agree with my results from Hippocrates :steam: Maybe I don't know myself very well (although I'm very self aware) but I've heard other people express frusteration over the inconsistency of MBTI as well, so maybe the system is flawed? No offense to you MBTI lovers. When self diagnosing, I think I'm an INFJ. For those of you who care to diagnose me, feel free to pick my brain.
Anyone relate to how I'm having difficulty determining my MBTI type? Any insights into how the MBTI and Hippocrates correspond? Know of good MBTI test's that are free or do ya gotta pay to get the goods?
