The characteristic of the cycloid type, or otherwise alternating emotional temperament, is cyclical, that is to say, the alternating phases psychological "fast" (hypomania) and depression ("pessimistic").
Most people alternate between good and somewhat bad mood, depression and optimism, happiness and unhappiness. The individual type cycloid differs from others in that it changes from one hand are striking, and also show marked limitations.
The type is similar to the exalted hysteroid. There is in him less than theatrical excess emotional excesses built on impressions. It is said that "happiness is the fact climb to heaven or sorrow leads to hell." There is no middle ground. The exalted individual is incredibly naive. It welcomes all with wide eyes: "But it's extremely interesting! Fantastic! "He believes in aliens and ghosts, takes for granted a compliment, and" swoon "of reality. He remained all his life a "big kid".
The type terrorized
Children have always terrorized type afraid of something: dogs, teachers, older children, the black of the storm. Their classmates notice it quickly and constantly annoy, making them their scapegoat.
In adulthood, this picture changes somewhat. Fear becomes secondary, while indecisiveness, lack of confidence, shyness and submission come first. They are unable to defend in discussion their perspective. They suffer from a strong inferiority complex. They are concerned for others, for themselves, for their health. Among them is found the largest number of hypochondriasis: they believe they are suffering from a hidden disease that nobody can discover.
