Disclaimer: this post is one of my brain pretzels I like to do, but might not accomplish anything...




An interesting point Donner takes from Steiner is the temperament you were when you were a child changes when you become an adolescent. "...the Sanguine turns Phlegmatic, the Phlegmatic turns Melancholic, the Melancholy turns Choleric and the Choleric turns Sanguine."  In other words, the temperament refines.

She also makes comments about how to determine your Secondary.  First, she states that your secondary is often correlated with the type of one or both of your parents.  Secondly, your temperament as a child may become your secondary as an adult.

So by extension,

A Sanguine T1 child, may become a Phlegmatic/Sanguine, T 2/1, retaining their youthful qualities as their secondary.  And one of your parents is likely to be Sanguine T1.  You were more like them as a child than you are now.

A Phlegmatic T2 child, may become a Melancholic/Phlegmatic, T 4/2, retaining their secondary compassionate nature but becoming more analytical.  And one of your parents is likely to be Phlegmatic T2. You were more like them as a child than you are now.

A Melancholic T4 child, may become a Choleric/Melancholic, T 3/4, becoming more dynamic, yet retaining a reserved quality. And one of your parents is likely to be Melancholic T4. You were more like them as a child than you are now.

A Choleric T3 child, may become a Sanguine/Choleric, T 1/3, becoming lighter but still dynamic.  And one of your parents is likely to be Choleric T3. You were more like them as a child than you are now.

Thinking here...

If you are not 1/3 as above:
If you are a 1/2, you have always been a T1, and are not becoming T2 but have the secondary because one of your parents was T2.
If you are a 1/4, you have always been a T1, and are not becoming T2 but have the secondary because one of your parents was T4.

If you are not 2/1 as above:
If you are a 2/3, you have always been T2 and not become more T4, but have the secondary because one of your parents is T3.
If you are 2/4, you have always been T2, and are not becoming T4 but have the secondary because one of your parents was T4.

If you are not 3/4 as above:
If you are a 3/1, you have always been a T3 and are not becoming a T1, but have the secondary because one of your parents is T1.
If you are a 3/2, you have always been a T3 and are not becoming a T1, but have the secondary because one of your parents is T2.

If you are not 4/2 as above:
If you are a 4/1, you have always been a T4, and are not becoming T3 but have the secondary because one of your parents was T1.
If you are a 4/3, you have always been a T4, and are not becoming T3 but have the secondary because one of your parents was T3.
