      @Blitz, perhaps it's the oldest personality classification available. Lol you can't mix & match the categories, and probably that's why it's considered to be not-so-flexible.

      Interesting. Never seen this old classification system before.
      I'd put myself as a mix of phlegmatic and melancholy
