CHOLERIC: Referring to the yellow bile of the liver, and considered to be fire (hot and dry). Best exemplified by most teenagers before 11:00 a.m., and, generally, if you have read my other blog, the person I used to be married to (when he was not being phlegmatic).
Words that can be used to describe a choleric temperment include:
CHOLERIC: IS THIS YOU?
Well cut it out!
People like you are such a grand pain.
You're never happy with anything anybody does for you, and you make everybody walk around on eggshells trying not to accidentally set you off.
The next time you feel that you want to give someone a piece of your mind, take one of the books on the SOUR booklist and hit yourself over the head with it until you actually have something to complain about.
(To support the PHLEGMATIC, or to correct a CHOLERIC temperment)
Transcendent Books, which tend to give one perspective on how difficult it is to live around a sour person and/or the emptiness of that kind of life, including:
Being and Nothingness
Green Eggs and Ham
Lazy Tommy Punkinhead
The Great Gatsby
The Man without Qualities
The Old Man and the Sea
