I'm still struggling to see what this can tell me about myself that I don't already know (by selecting the word from the word lists). Also it seems to be telling me stuff that is blatantly wrong.
    Well, "quick to act" in this case would be "pragmatic", and if you're an NT, then by Keisey's definition, you are pragmatic, and this is what I had linked with a sort of "quickness to act". Pragmatics do what works, while cooperatives do what's right. Hence, the NT and SP will be a bit quicker to act on things. (Some quickness to act would be from extroversion, as well).

    "Staying angry" was one of the original definitions of Choleric, but once again, there's traits, and there's root definitions. The traits are only possible results of the root factor. So what it translates into now is task-focus. For the NT (and SJ), task focus is what Berens calls Structure focus. It doesn't necessarily make you more angry, but it is less people-focused than the Motive focus of SP and NF.

    Eric, if you would like to discuss this further, which I would like to do, we'll have to do it in my blog because I don't want to derail this thread. Is that okay?

    Choleric-Melancholy for me. Off to the descriptions:

    The Extrovert | The Doer | The Optimist
    The Introvert | The Thinker | The Pessimist

    But, wait.

    Best of both worlds? Or this can just be an explanation of why about 90% of the people I know perceive me as a freak?

    You think you might be an E? ESTJ would fit that perfectly. Instead of "introverted", the SJ (as the Melancholy part of it) is "cooperative", which will be slower to take action.

    To be honest, I never thought of it. I can feel my soul being drained in social activities. Still, I can fake it pretty well. And I´m quick to take action most of the time. Now I understand why some users here have an "x" in their type.

    What I found confusing, is that my temperament combination is made of two exact opposites, and with even scores, same for their strenghts and weaknesses.

    They're not totally opposite. They share in common "directiveness" or task-focus (as opposed to people-focus, which would explain why you would be drained in social situations just as much as a pure Melancholy. You might express yourself a lot to people, but not respond as much to them (In the system I like the most, we call it "responding as an introvert")

    I guess it's the whole "pessimist vs optimist" dichotomy that makes them look opposite; but the Choleric is described as optimistic because of the expressiveness. That's only one dimension in which they are opposite.
