Yesterday I thought "tomorrow I'm going to run" and the vision was good. This morning I woke up and dressed in sport clothes... but I'm still here... you know, I can't go and run just like that, I have to fill time first...

The fact that they only tell you the positive aspects of each personality makes it a difficult choice because I feel like I'm overvaluing my values when I say I am a rebel reactor dreamer

That's what I thought of the rebel meaning here... I'm hardly a rebel in the usual sense

There's a little booklet Immanuel Kant once wrote during one of his rare travels outside of Königsberg in which he characterises humans according to the classic humores-doctrine. I should look up the title.

Which is a bit odd, considering that the ethics he is known for are established on the principe that humans have to be thought off as free agents, independend of such deterministic restrictions.

Kant was a serious physician, a man of science. So it's safe to say that his refering to the humores-doctrine indicates the relevance this doctrine still had in the second half of the 18th century.

Ooh well, he also wrote that the act of marriage basically comes down to obtaining posession of your spouses genitalia - well, their functional role in the process of reproduction, to be accurate.
