Correlation of the Four Temperaments and Depression

Every type gets depressed, just for different reasons.  I think I mainly have Melancholic oversensitivity.... with some Phlegmatic lethargy.

(Schizothymia is a temperament related to schizophrenia in a way analogous to Cyclothymia's relationship with bipolar disorder, both being the very minimal forms.)

Type 4? Melancholic & Idealist: The Hyperesthetic Personality (overly sensitive) results from desiring, needing, and delighting in superiority; and from fearing, and being distressed by, inferiority. Melancholics are prone to nervousness, depression, anxiety, mood swings  

Type 3?  Choleric & Rational: The Anesthetic Personality (insensitive) results from desiring, needing, and delighting in power; and from fearing, and being distressed by, weakness.  Cholerics can fall into deep depression or moodiness when failures or setback befall them.

Type 2? Phlegmatic & Guardian: The Depressive Personality (prone to depression) results from desiring, needing, and delighting in belonging; and from fearing, and being distressed by, not belonging. Because Phlegmatics are prone to excessive sluggishness, torpor can lead to depression.

Type 1? Sanguine & Artisan: The Hypomanic Personality (anxious or mildly manic) results from desiring, needing, and delighting in pleasure; and from fearing, and being distressed by, pain. Sanguine are prone to seasonal depression and mood swings because they are highly influenced by such outside stimuli as weather, other people’s moods, even food etc.
