My latest piece on MercatorNet is part of a first foray into the four temperaments theory:
If you want to know what an extreme choleric looks like, start with Donald Trump.
If an ancient Greek physician met Donald Trump, they would be deeply concerned. Not for any of the usual reasons, but because Trump’s behaviour and appearance would be viewed as indicating a severe excess of yellow bile – a terrible imbalance of humour with associated medical complaints.
On the psychological level Trump is an excellent specimen of an extreme choleric. He is proud, ambitious, audacious, thin-skinned, aggressive, bullying, self-absorbed, energetic, and individualistic.
There’s a little bit of Trump in all of us, but more so (much more so) in others of the choleric temperament.
