    Temperament is the general mood people are prone to. Some theorists believve you are born witha particular temperament, such as a happy person, a sad person, a moody person, introverted, extroverted, etc.

    Character are the traits you develop as you mature, such as honesty, integrity, thoughtfulnes, kindness, etc. A person can develop these traits no matter what the temperament they have because it depends how you respond to things and the choices you make.

    Temperament defines your emotionalism and character defines what you value. For example, according to Keirsey Bates personality science, there are 4 major types of personality.

    SJ - Guardians - Character - they value feeling needed and useful, they long to feel like they belong to a group. They are the type of people who join sororities and fraternities. Temperament - they tend to be very even keel, with a tendency towards pessimism.

    SP - Artisans - Character - they value freedom and a lack of rules. They like bucking the system and getting away with things. Temperament - SPs tend to be happy go lucky types, very optimistic.

    NTs - rationals - value information and skills, they tend to be realists, neither pessimistic nor optimistic.

    NF - idealists - value genuineness and self realization - they tend to be moody - either highs or lows.

    Character is one of the components of personality. The two major components of personality are character and temperament (i.e., that part of the personality which is genetically based). Character refers to the behavioral manifestations of ego identity, as well as the behavioral aspects of ego functions and ego structure. Personality is the broader term, defined as a dynamic and organized set of characteristics possessed by a person that uniquely influences cognitions, motivations, and behaviors in various situations. In addition to character and temperament, personality includes superego value systems (moral and ethical dimensions of personality) and cognitive capabilities (which are both genetically and culturally determined). Personality Psychology is an important discipline within psychology.

    Our temperament is largely inherited while our character is made up mostly of our choices for example: we can choose to be honest, reliable, decent and courteous.

    Temerament is your usual mood and character is the inherent complex of attributes that determine a persons moral and ethical actions and reactions.
