Many people have asked why is Keirsey Temperament Theory not known broadly as “it should be.”
For a long time, I couldn’t give a good answer.
The answer is: “It’s a Slow Idea.”
My father outlines “The History of Madness” in his lectures. And the Wholistic Theory of Madness is a slow idea, its roots going back to over a century with my father adding the idea of Temperament in the last half century. Fast Ideas about “madness” have been around since Homo Sapens possessed language.
They had to be discrete. Tongues will wag. For their idea is a slowidea, not well accepted in the world even today. Their slowidea on the human element, Hu, analogously called latentheat in physics and chemistry, generated a lot of heat by others, full of sound and fury at the time, for these other people vigorously opposed the idea:On Liberty – moral|economic. It wasn’t the fastidea at the time: the conventional wisdom of Victorian, Anglican, England: the idea of nationalised merchantilism — tariffed moral, economic, political, and social trade: locally culture restricted and centralized regulated trade of ideas and things: Oh Britannia.
