Qualities associated with the temperamental combination
Identification of an individual’s dominant and sub-dominant temperament provides information of the qualities associated with an individual’s temperamental combination.
Adjacent is an example of an individual with a dominant sanguinous sub-dominant phlegmatic temperament as indicated with the line marked X. In this example this person has an overall dominant quality of moistness less heat, followed by coldness and the least amount of dryness. Similarly, an individual with dominant phlegmatic, sub-dominant sanguinous temperament (marked with a Y) will also have an overall quality of moistness but followed with coldness than heat and also the least amount of dryness. However, both temperamental combinations have a dominant quality of moistness and the least amount of the dryness quality.
Changes to this ideal qualitative state of an individual especially an increase in the dominant quality will have a negative effect on the individual’s health whereas an increase in the opposite least quality will be beneficial for this person.
