Here are historical religious figures that are archetypes of the four temperaments.

St. Ignatius=Choleric, St Philip Neri=Sanguine,

“Go forth and set the world on fire.” ― St. Ignatius of Loyola (Choleric)

"Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life. Therefore the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits." St. Philip Neri (Sanguine)


St Thomas Aquinas=Phlegmatic, St John of Cross=Melancholic

"Because philosophy arises from awe, a philosopher is bound in his way to be a lover of myths and poetic fables. Poets and philosophers are alike in being big with wonder." Thomas Aquinas (Phlegmatic)

“Beloved, all that is harsh and difficult I want for myself, and all that is gentle and sweet for thee”  St. John of the Cross  (Melancholic)
