I was reading an issue of my mum's Natural Health magazine to get some healthy living ideas to help me along with BatFit when I came across something that really amused me. It was a personality test based on the theory of the 'four humours' and advised each personality type of which colours they should wear; "Are you being true to yourself, wearing the colours you were born to be seen in? Or have you unknowingly moved away from your true characteristics?"
The 'melancholic' humour is described thusly: "In company you may be quite self-conscious, feeling that people are looking at you, and on a bad day that they are being critical. You very much want people to think well of you and this may be why you are usually impeccably presented. You are inwardly aware that you are a special person but you still tend towards low self-esteem. Works of art can often trigger your deepest feelings: music, paintings, theatre and poetry. You may be intensely artistic."
The four temperaments are listed as patient Phleghmatic, sunny Sanguine, dynamic Choleric and introverted Melancholic.
I'm not sure how accurate this sort of test is, but I couldn't help wonder how many Goths would also score as Melancholic and be advised that wearing black 'enhances their personality'. Sadly I couldn't find the same article online so you guys could post your test results, but I found a very similar test over yonder. Let's put this theory to the test!
