It is important to underscore the fact that understanding the concept of temperament will certainly improve your interpersonal relationships. It will help you to answer the following critical questions:

▪️Why am I so different?

Temperament is the combination of inborn traits that subconsciously affect all our behaviours. There are four basic types of temperament and these are:
