Berens' theory is the best way to look at it through, because she recombines Keirsey with the functions, and also highlights the Interaction Styles, which were basically a recent afterthought for Keirsey. (He started with D/inf and the eight intelligence variants, but didn't divide them by I/E to get the "roles of interaction" until four years ago!)
Basically, each type is a blend of two temperaments; one social, and the other one about leadership. When we think of the classic temperaments, we usually think the social ones ("affective"), but Keirsey's were about leadership and action ("conative").
So to translate:
SJ's - The Guardians
The Melancholy in Control Temperament Melancholy In Control
Cooperative and structure-focused because of his need for familiarity, based on his introverted Sensing preference (goes well with logistics)
ESTJ - Logistical Initiator - Choleric Melancholy (Si + "directive" Te as dominant)
ISTJ - Logistical Contender - Melancholy in both areas (Si dominant + Te)
ESFJ - Logistical Co-Worker -Sanguine Melancholy (Si + "Freindly" Fe as dominant)
ISFJ - Logistical Responder - Supine Melancholy (Si dominant + Fe)
SP's - The Artisans
Sanguine in Control Temperament: Sanguine In Control
Pragmatic and motive focused (leads to the so-called "independent/dependent 'swing'" emphasized in the link) because the "go-with-the-flow perspective of preferred extraverted Sensing leads him to both extremes. Goes along with "Tactic", which is defined as "A manoeuvre, or action calculated to achieve some end."
ESTP - Tactical Initiator - Choleric Sanguine (Se dominant + "tough minded" T[i]))
ISTP - Tactical Contender - Melancholy Sanguine (Se aux. + Ti)
ESFP - Tactical Co-Worker - Sanguine in both areas (Se + "friendly" Fi)
ISFP - Tactical Responder - Supine Sanguine (Fi dominant + Se)
NF's - The Idealists
Keirsey said it was Choleric, based on "emotionality", but more accurately fits these (from more emotional and also dependent, to less of both):
Temperament:Supine in Control
Temperament:Supine Phlegmatic in Control
Temperament: Phlegmatic in Control
Cooperative and Motive focused makes him conceptually "dependent" on others in a way (diplomatic, etc) with a humane (people-related) focus (F).
ENFJ - Diplomatic Initiator - Choleric Supine (dom. Fe "toughened" by "directive" Ni)
INFJ - Diplomatic Contender - Melancholy Supine (dom Ni + Fe).
ENFP - Diplomatic Co-Worker - Sanguine Supine ("informative" Ne as dom + "friendly" Fi)
INFP - Diplomatic Responder (Fi dom. + Ne).
NT's - The Rationals
Keirsey said it was Phlegmatic (based on "calmness"), but even in his books, you can see it really fits:
Temperament: Choleric in Control
Pragmaticism and structure-focus makes him conceptually independent and needing to "master" the world, (in one way or another) based on logical (impersonal, technical) principles. "Strategy" sounds similar to "tactic", but it's more about command; particularly the "science" of it!
ENTJ - Strategic Initiator - Choleric in both areas (Te dom. + Ni - both "directive")
INTJ - Strategic Contender -Melancholy Choleric (Ni dom. + Te)
ENTP - Strategic Co-Worker - Sanguine Choleric ("informative" Ne [dom] tempers directive T[i]).
INTP - Strategic Responder - Phlegmatic or Supine Choleric (Ti dom. + Ne)
