Like trees in a forest we are all unique and yet interconnected. We are self-organizing systems within larger self-organizing systems. For survival, each system must remain separate and at the same time be connected with other systems. We must know our own identity, maintain our uniqueness and yet be an integral part of the larger community. Four Patterns of Personality...
The four temperaments are patterns of organization. They have been recognized for over twenty-five centuries and their existence is supported by research. Knowing these patterns allows you to know yourself and understand others at a very deep level. A Concise and Easy-to-Read Introduction...
These patterns of organization are natural organizing principles that show up in all levels of living systems. Understanding Yourself and Others: An Introduction to Temperament relates these patterns to human interaction.

from "Why?"... Many of us live out the "should'ves" and "ought tos" of our past and our current environments. Finding out who you are can free you to shed those "shoulds" and "oughts" that don't fit you. On the other hand, it can also free you to behave in ways that are not naturally like you. When you know who you are, you are freer to be who you are not! Sometimes to get along better with others and to do your work, you have to behave in ways that don't match who you are. An understanding of your natural temperament pattern can give you the firm foundation to consciously change your behaviors without changing your true self. It will give you the energy and confidence to expand beyond your natural self.
