I have been familiar with the 4 Temperaments since about age 14, so when it came up during our marriage prep, Sean and I flew through the section, and were all, "Tell us something we don't know, marriage prep group leaders!" They didn't and in fact said a few things that were either wrong or have been widely debunked, which was a nice source of distraction for me and my special man friend. I'm sure that wasn't annoying at all for the instructors, as we were right in the front row, and Sean doesn't know how to whisper. Anyway, after the test, they ordered the four types to separate and stand in the four corners of the rooms and point to their affianced (perhaps a ploy to shut up Sean and I). The group of roughly 100 couples was divided very equally among the 4 types and almost everyone was with someone of a different temperament. So one thing we did learn was that the reactions of each of the temperaments in determining their types and then grouping together was absurdly consistent. Even people who had never heard of the 4 Temperaments were acting as though they'd studied all the cliches and behaved accordingly. See quiz for elaboration.
The best and most complex quiz for the 4 Temperaments I have ever found is on Catholic Match, which calculates in percentages which two temperaments you are, so that’s fun (it's hard to get around the website without signing up, so good luck on that). For a couple, it is really helpful to know and understand each other’s temperament because it softens the frustrations that arise and make you go, “What is wrong with you? Why are you the way you are?!?!?!?!/Why are you like this?!?!” Knowing and understanding your honey’s temperament can help answer that question a lot of time, and sooth the urge to imagine that your baby is just doing that to annoy you. The 4 Temperaments is very limited, however, and honestly the Myers-Briggs is so much more satisfyingly in depth, so I recommend checking that one out too.
Anyway, if you do take the test, leave a comment and tell me if it seemed accurate.
Merry Christmas, all!
