    Sanguine probably fits better..followed closely by the other one. They describe me better than the MBTI...I don't know.
    There's a total of 40 points. You're a blend, not one or the other.

    Your latest is:

    That means Mel-San makes up 70% of your total.

    You wouldn't leave out 35% of your overall temperament would you? Nope.

    My own scores are:

    16 Chol = 40%
    12 Mel = 30%
    12 Sang = 30%
    00 Phleg

    I'm a triple.
    If I only chose Choleric, I'd be missing a whopping 60% of my total.

    The way these humors correspond with MBTI, elements and medieval physiology is so arbitrary I might as well come up with my own right here, right now.

    I found this part really cool.

    The word "temperament" comes from the Latin word temperamentum and means "right blending." The Greeks thought that a person’s "temperament" was therefore made up of a blending of these four fluids.

    An excess of yellow bile resulted in a temperament believed to be warm/hot and dry, and associated with the element of fire [Choleric].

    An excess of red bile resulted in a temperament believed to be warm/hot and wet, and associated with the element of air [Sanguine].

    An excess of white bile resulted in a temperament believed to be cool/cold and wet, and associated with the element of water [Phlegmatic].

    An excess of black bile resulted in a temperament believed to be cool/cold and dry, and associated with the element of earth [Melancholy].
    http://fourtemperaments.com/History.htm

    Without knowing anything about the temperaments, I've always self-styled myself as fire and ice. My score from the test was Choleric (warm/hot and dry-fire) by almost double, then Melancholy (cool/cold and dry-earth), albeit earth isn't ice but neither is water. And ice is dry until warmed.

    This description for the Temperament blends while being overly flattering, does fit me. It also aligns with the results from the DISC test taken off Tony Robbins site.

    4. Strategist Pattern

    Choleric-Melancholy

    "D-C"

    The Strategist is more detail oriented than the other Cholerics. They initiate change. They usually operate from a well-thought through plan. They have creative ideas. They will often use very direct, forceful and persistent methods to get results or promote their ideas. They want to be in charge because of confidence in their ability to make things happen the "right" way. They like to solve problems and make decision and are actually quite able to do so. They usually have well thought-out goals and are very independent in an attempt to carry them out. They need to know exactly what is expected before they can function efficiently. They can be very forceful and very sensitive. They speak with authority and are usually very productive. When working on a project they exhibit sensitivity and strategy that reveals penetrating insight. To be highly motivated they need freedom, the opportunity for advancement, information that will help them get results and the chance to make something better. They dislike weakness.

    I did the test again, most of the time I score 1 or 2 points higher on mel, compared to the san. And there's 4 choleric, and 4 phlegmatic.

    Melancholy: 17
    Sanguine: 15
    Choleric: 4
    Phlegmatic: 4
