The Choleric personality type is associated with testosterone, and although every temperamental makeup is represented by members of both genders, most choleric people are men.
Generally, Cholerics are money- and success-oriented people. They are fascinated by stocks, investments, money markets, and all kinds of revenue generation methods, just like others are fascinated by art and poetry.
These people are very practical, and they make for naturally gifted businesspeople.
Continually looking for opportunities and always working on themselves, they build successful businesses that thrive and benefit others.
That doesn’t mean that these people are greedy for money by any means!
From their perspective, work is fun.
However, they never do well in a subordinate position – they are all about independence, financially and otherwise.
It’s About Exact Sciences!
Another unique quality of choleric people is their ability to systematize everything.
That is why they usually enjoy math and other exact sciences.
They have a hard time trying to understand why the approaches they use for solving a mathematical problem cannot be used when addressing relationship issues.
Testosterone also contributes to their spatial skills.
Their spatial skills can be reflected in musical and athletic ability, particularly sports that require spatial skills, such as soccer.
Don’t Bug Me; I’m busy!
People with a choleric personality are good at math, geometry, and engineering, which often affects their professional choices.
They are goal-oriented and have a sharp focus as they work.
Their concentration is deep and narrow. When they are busy with something, Cholerics are simply not capable of noticing other things that are going on around them.

This type of people is very analytical and logical.
These people are kings and queens of figuring out things.
High testosterone activity in these men and women makes them very straightforward.
Generally, Choleric people don’t strive to be polite, respectful, or friendly. They do stuff according to what is convenient to them and, most importantly, is in line with their goals.
Wasting words and repeating the obvious seem pointless to them.
Forcing them to do so is a surefire way to annoy them!
