Happy, at rest,
may all beings be happy at heart.
Whatever beings there may be,
weak or strong, without exception,
long, large,
middling, short,
subtle, blatant,
seen & unseen,
near & far, born & seeking birth: May all beings be happy at heart.

Let no one deceive another
or despise anyone anywhere,
or through anger or irritation
wish for another to suffer.
— Sn 1.8

So I would consider myself to be introverted who is quick minded (at least when judging) so it looks like I should focus on the fourth satipatthana, dhammas. When I was practicing this evening (30 minutes) I only had a handful of mindful risings and fallings of the abdomen. Most of my experience bounced between itching, itching, itching, hearing, hearing, hearing, pain, tingling, pressure, itching, itching, and only a little bit of thinking, thinking... But no dhammas. Certainly I shouldn't NOT note bodily sensations should I? How do I transition to primarily working onthe fourth satipatthana when Mara is throwing me itching and a choir across the hall and a ticking clock? :anjali:

Just take a best guess, or ask people that know you well.
Does not seem to be too much information about this temperament stuff.

Also there is writing about temperament in relation to 40meidation objects:

typologies, IMO, are contrarty to trying to gain releas from the first fetter (sakkāya-diṭṭhi) and inhibit the usefulness of anatta insight
