The Choleric / Melancholic
The choleric-melancholic mixture combines two
passionate and persevering temperaments to create a strong leader with the
ability to envision a great plan of action — someone who is both meticulous and
strategic. The tendency of the choleric to make hasty, often sweeping judgments
will be tempered by the melancholic’s careful analysis and reflection. The
tendency of the melancholic to be moody, hyper-critical, and slow to act will be
counter-balanced by the optimism and practicality of the choleric. Thus, the
choleric-melancholic will be capable of decisive -- yet well-thought-out— action
and will be thoroughly productive.

If you are a choleric-melancholic, you will have a quick, analytical
mind, possibly with a great attention to detail, with a strong sense of order
and discipline. You will be more extraverted than a pure melancholic or a
melancholic-choleric, and you are able to take on more projects and accomplish
more things than a pure melancholic would be capable of. Furthermore, your
pragmatism will receive the additional value of noble and high ideals, so you
will likely be a very conscientious employee. You will likely have a
strong analytical mind, holding other people and institutions to high standards.
Both the melancholic and choleric temperaments retain their impressions for a
long time—so you will have the capacity to persevere in achieving your goals—as
well as holding onto to a grudge and being unforgiving!

Driven, yet self-sacrificing and a lover of truth, the
choleric-melancholic can accomplish great things. Without human and spiritual
formation, however, this mixture can result in an individual who is proud and
obstinate, with deep anger and resentment. They can be opinionated, critical,
and judgmental. The quick intelligence of the choleric combined with the
tendency to think they are always right, might make those with this temperament
mixture autocratic, moody, arrogant, and anti-social.

We imagine that St. Paul was choleric-melancholic: He was intense,
focused, driven. He was not one to value relationships above rules. He disagreed
with St. Peter on several occasions (as he wrote to the Galatians (2:11): “And
when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face because he clearly was
wrong”) and even parted ways from his fellow missionary Barnabus, because
Barnabus wanted to bring along John Mark, whom Paul said had deserted them at
Pamphylia (Acts 15: 37-39).
If your temperament is choleric-melancholic, for
a better understanding of your temperament it is recommended that you read the
full descriptions of the choleric and melancholic.

The Melancholic / Choleric

The melancholic-choleric is also a leader with the potential to
accomplish great works. However, where the choleric-melancholic is driven by the
challenge and the opportunity, the melancholic-choleric is inspired more by the
nobility of the task. The introverted nature of the melancholic, combined with
the focused and unempathic nature of the choleric, can result in an individual
who is highly motivated by noble ideals (even humanitarian ones), but who
prefers to work alone, rather than with people. The melancholic side of both
temperament mixtures results in the project being organized, ethical, and
high-minded, while the choleric aspect is the driving and demanding force.

If you are melancholic-choleric, you are somewhat less pragmatic (or
utilitarian) than a pure choleric, just as persevering and determined, and with
a greater emphasis on the ideal. Likely to be motivated by the most noble and
demanding of causes, you are capable of founding a humanitarian society,
composing a symphony, founding a school, or discovering a cure. You are
organized, perfectionist, introspective, driven, and moody (though less so than
a pure melancholic). You will be less active than a choleric-melancholic and
less extraverted, more internally focused.

But your weaknesses include a tendency to excessive self-criticism and
criticism of others, being dismissive or overly judgmental, exhibiting a
tendency to self-absorption, and possessing an untrustful and controlling
nature. You tend to be inflexible, can bear grudges for a long time and may be
prone to discouragement. A melancholic-choleric who is not attentive to his
spiritual life, and does not keep his eye assiduously on the truly important
things of life can become a cross to those around him, through his nit-picking,
perfectionism, disdain, bitterness, resentfulness, spitefulness when crossed,
and even haughtiness.
