There are several different theories of personality.

One recognized by psychologists is that of the four basic personality groups: Sanguine, Melancholy, Choleric, and Phlegmatic.

Knowing and understanding these personality groups, (or temperament types), may assist with interactions between yourself, coworkers and supervisors. Identification of the strengths and weaknesses within these groups also assists you in comprehending what you, and others, are capable of performing in the office.
