Humours

- the four humours are Sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic. Each is related to one of the four administering virtues of the body - blood, yellow bile, phlegm and black bile respectively - whose relative proportions were used in ancient and medieval physiology to determine a person's natural disposition and general health. They are associated with the elements and seasonal influences - see individual terms: sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic.
