Four Dimension Personality Instruments*
|William Moulton Marston||D||I||S||C|
|DISC Personality System -||Dominant||Influencing||Steady||Compliant|
|The Color Code,|
|David W. Keirsey||Rationals|
David Keirsey believed that those who are "Sensing" and "Judging" (SJ) fit the classic description of the Phlegmatic. Those who are "Sensing" and "Perceiving" (SP) are Sanguines. Those who are "Intuitive" and "Feeling" (NF) are Melancholics, and those who are "Intuitive" and "Thinking" (NT) are Cholerics. He gave descriptions of and new names to the classic types -- the new names being: Artisans (Sanguine), Rationals (Cholerics), Idealists (Melancholics), and Guardians (Phlegmatic) -- and further broke down those groups into four sub-groups:
- The Sanguine Artisans SP: The Performers (ESFP); The Promoters (ESTP); The Composers (ISFP); The Crafters (ISTP).
- The Choleric Rationals NT: The Field Marshalls (ENTJ); The Inventors (ENTP); The Masterminds (INTJ); The Architects (INTP).
- The Melancholic Idealists NF: The Teachers (ENFJ); The Champions (ENFP); The Counselors (INFJ); The Healers (INFP).
- The Phlegmatic Guardians SJ: The Supervisors (ESTJ); The Providers (ESFJ); The Inspectors (ISTJ); The Protectors (ISFJ).
