I wanted to add stuff about my mother and others. This theory is fascinating so I want to contribute from some people I know.
It's hard to tell be she seems like a possible
candidate for supine in all three.
Either Supine In Inclusion or Supine-Phlegmatic In Inclusion *?*
I think for MBTI she's for sure SFJ. Not entirely sure about e or i just
cause she's been through alot so it's burned her out and might have went to her Si if she's extroverted.
She definitely has alot of extroverted traits but seems introverted too?
Supine-Phleg Inclusion seems to fit her for the most part especially here "Introvert/extrovert -- expresses (behaves like) an introvert, but will respond like an extrovert when others initiate social interaction" and " Dry sense of humor which can be biting and sarcastic.
Strong-minded and very resistant to change."
Might even be Supine in Control as alot of the points made there too fit well in her behaviors I've seen her act out of and what she has even expressed.
Supine in Affection is another potential. She seems to exhibit alot of supine traits in all areas.
My father was very phlegmatic, so much so it drove my mother rather crazy. It seemed like nothing would ever bother him. I've only seen him seriously yell with real anger once. He had to be prodded quite abit to do some things.
A friend of my fathers told me how he was back in school days and mentioned how if he'd be picked on or something he'd let it roll right off his back and would appear to be unaffected.
He read a very emotion filled letter I wrote him and didn't shed one tear or show any expression :O.
He was just not a man of many expressions, very simple/consistent in what he liked and would always just sit outside just relaxing or taking a walk.
Definitely liked to take it easy, maybe too easy when it came to some critical matters.
I have a best friend that seems to be a complete melancholy *ISTJ*.
Very cautious regarding change, definitely does not let people in easy at all.
Cause of this I used to perceive *elementary* I was being rejected from being a potential friend and it bothered me abit.
Also has this very low energy vibe about her too and sometimes will get quiet all of a sudden cause of this low energy.
Funny thing is when I was baby my mother told me how content/peaceful I was. Someone told me I'd probably have the most content, peaceful, and well behaved children some day from observing my temperament.
Also back in HS someone who was interested in personality theory of the four temperaments was apparantly observing me talking with a friend so with excitement said how I seem "phlegmatic".
Just thought i'd add alittle variety on my end of other styles and what's been told to me by others as you may find that interesting Eric in relation to the Temperament Theory.
It's very fascinating how the differences illustrate themselves over general themes .
