    Default Three Buddhist Temperaments

    Interesting take on different personality traits, supposedly created by a Buddhist scholar. Also gives some helpful advice at the end, but probably not very meaningful for most. : The Three Buddhist Personality Types: Which One Are You?

    Anyways, according to the assessment my temperament is Delusion: This frame of mind gives rise to creativity, spontaneity, and equanimity. The task for this type is to learn how to reel in their minds and pay attention to find a place of balanced steadiness. This type will miss their alarm and wake up late, will eat messily, will feel scattered at work and will feel unsure of how to interact in groups, often copying what others are doing. This way of being can give rise to doubt, negligence, ignorance, inaction and anxiety.

    Delusion

    The deluded type has a natural ability to approach situations with a “beginner’s mind” – without assumption. This frame of mind gives rise to creativity, spontaneity, and equanimity. The task for this type is to learn how to reel in their minds and pay attention to find a place of balanced steadiness.

    Delusion > Greed = Aversion. I actually have huge problems with all three of these.
    The third, the deluded temperament, becomes easily lost in uncertainty and confusion. This type will miss their alarm and wake up late, will eat messily, will feel scattered at work and will feel unsure of how to interact in groups, often copying what others are doing. This way of being can give rise to doubt, negligence, ignorance, inaction and anxiety.

    I find it really hard to decide on most of these. I'm not sure why.

    aversion... because I'm special

    The test says delusion > greed > aversion. Though after reading the descriptions, I relate to all of them and conclude that my answers are BS.

    Strange test. I got the Greed type:

    The first, the greed temperament, is compelled by desire and seeks comfort and pleasure. This type will wake up slowly, will enjoy their meals unhurriedly and savor rich and delicious foods, will drive through traffic with ease, will sleep well, and will seek harmony and avoid conflict in interactions with others, even if that means being dishonest. In the process of grasping for more and more can come problems like over-indulgence, pride, self-centeredness, jealousy, deceitfulness and addiction.
    I definitely relate most to this one.
