Roy Wilkinson lays out an approach to the four essential personality tendencies of children during the early elementary grades. What we call “temperaments” today were known in Greek times as the “four humors,” which medical science at the time considered very important. Knowledge of the temperaments has fallen into the background, but Rudolf Steiner pointed to their importance for educators.
