Description: The main step in planning self-development is discovering our own self: first, you have to know your character and temperament type in order to recognise your strengths and weaknesses depending on the type of your personality. There are four basic personality types: sanguine, phlegmatic, choleric and melancholic. However, every person has a unique combination of all of them. Around 50% of the variations in human personality are defined by genetic factors, whereas the other 50% are influenced by external factors and are a result of upbringing. People may also be characterised by their behaviour as introverts and extraverts. Understanding the differences between these types of temperament can help in building relationships, making career, communicating with others, problem solving, etc.
