To determine the types of temperament, H.J. Eysenck developed a two-factor model, which includes extroversion and neuroticism scales. Extroversion is a characteristic of individual psychological differences between people. There are two directions, so person either intends to the external world (extroversion) or inner world (introversion).
Neuroticism is a mental state characterized by emotional instability, anxiety, excitement, poor health, and vegetative disorders. This factor is also bipolar. There are two poles: one with positive meaning is marked with emotional stability and the opposite pole - with emotional instability. Emotional stability is typical for sanguine and phlegmatic people, in contrast, emotional instability is a feature of choleric and melancholic ones.

Introverts (phlegmatic and melancholic) are observant, distant, socially uncooperative with sufficient persistence. They tend to self-examination, find it difficult to adapt in the society, and concentrate on their feelings.
