    Default Temperaments and (symbolic) colours

    If you were to assign colours to the temperaments, what would they be? And why?

    my suggestion (in order of "certainty")

    SP: red
    NT: blue
    NF: yellow
    SJ: green

    mark that "grey" is not considered to be a colour

    what do you mean by "assign colors". do they have symbolistic meaning or...my point is just this: what are you getting at what. what is the point?

    im just curious...not trying to be cynical or anything

    Yes, exactly that, the colour would have to have a symbolic value.
    RED: action: SP
    Blue: cool, rational: NT

    how did you come to the conclusion that NF would be yellow and SJ would be green

    I just use the original humour colors, but with a twist:

    SP - Sanguine - blood - red
    SJ - Melancholic - black bile
    NT - Choleric - yellow bile
    NF - Phlegmatic - green

    This reverses Keirsey's NF/NT assignments to the humours. But the NT's need for mastery and competence is more traditionally Choleric, while the NF's diplomacy and even its people-focus is traditionally Phlegmatic. (Keirsey judged it only by "enthusiasm" as opposed to "coolness", but the familiar "loud, hot-headed" aspect of choleric is best matched by the In Charge interaction style, rather than an action temperament. So Interaction + Conation are actually two four temperament systems mapped to the 16 types).
    APS Profile: Inclusion: e/w=1/6 (Supine) |Control: e/w=7/3 (Choleric) |Affection: e/w=1/9 (Supine)
    Ti 54.3 | Ne 47.3 | Si 37.8 | Fe 17.7 | Te 22.5 | Ni 13.4 | Se 18.9 | Fi 27.9

    is there any application to all of this?

    @Eric: very nice. I forgot about that. I like the adjustment you suggest.

    @mlittrell: explaining the temperaments to people new in MBTI might be easier through the use of colours. The letters are confusing at first.
