A descriptive message of the Four Temperaments from Grimms Wooden Toys -
The predominant temperament determines the specific mood in which someone usually finds themselves. It influences how we feel and experience life, how we think, act or react.
- The Melancholic temperament has a compassionate and rather sad nature. It is BLUE, turning inward into the depths, with edges, curves and endurance – like its element, the Earth.
- The Choleric temperament has an active and fiery nature. It is RED, jagged and sometimes sharp-edged. Its impulsiveness belongs to the element of Fire.
- The Phlegmatic temperament is steady and content. It is GREEN and still like the surface of a pond. Its curves and soft shapes correspond to its element, Water.
- The Sanguine temperament radiates cheerfulness and optimism. It is YELLOW and shines from within, losing itself in the periphery or in the sky. Air is its element.
