The Keirsey Temperament Awards for 2014
Each year an individual is awarded from each of the Four Temperaments: Artisan, Guardian, Idealist, and Rational. And we acknowledge this year’s passing of well known individuals who exhibited their Keirsey Temperament, In Memoriam.
The awards are given to individuals who are usually “famous” and have significantly impacted the world, as to illustrate and highlight the Four Temperaments. Keirsey Temperament Theory maintains all four Temperaments play important roles in society and we need all kinds of people to use their developed natural talents, to do the best at what they do best.
The selection is difficult, for sometimes Temperament is hidden because we are looking at these individuals from a far. Usually I don’t know the individuals personally, and only through the media am I familiar with these people. I am the judge and jury, with the suggestions from those are interested in Keirsey Temperament.
