Children's pesonalities aren't stuck in some rigid medieval pattern, they're quite fluid.
Well , as I mentioned before, I think it's quite a clumsy tool.
I feel charater traits are influenced by many factors, such as confidence and esteem, as well as external events. They are a fluid and changing phenonomen, and when put in a box, particularly by someone who may not be as aware as one would want, these "temperaments" could become a self fulfilling prophecy which a child is stuck with, and which the teachers use in so many ways
There are more subtle ways of definition, and imo the temperaments, or humours, are primitive and clumsy and I felt uncomfortable when this was the way my kids had choices made about them, like where they sat, what parts they had in plays, what instruments they were encouraged to play etc.
Dashmama you say
"Why do you think it is more cruel to phlegmatics than any other temperment?"
Sanguine: Spring, Yellow, Superficial, Nerves, Air, Socially Aware, Caring.
Choleric: Summer, Red, Destructive, Dictator, Blood, Fire, Selfless Leader.
Melancholic: Fall, Mauve, Self-pitying, Bones, Earth, Considerate, Understanding.
Phlegmatic: Winter, Blue, Lazy, Glands, Water, Reliable, Faithful.
It is always recogmnised, for obvious reasons, that the desirable temperament to be is sanguine....even the kids instinctually or not,knew this.
Are you a trained Steiner teacher?
