Hyperthymic temperament is characterized by a personality style or set of personality traits that include
- increased energy and productivity
- short sleep patterns
- vivid, active, extroverted
- self assured/self confident
- strong willed
- extremely conversational
- risk taking/sensation seeking
- breaking social norms
- strong libido
- generous and spendthrift
- cheerful and jovial
- unusual warmth
- robust and tireless

Individuals with hyperthymic temperament are often seen as strong, energetic, productive, well-respected, and are very often the leaders of the social network; the alpha. By definition, hyperthymic temperament does not have significant elements of dysfunction in mental, interpersonal, business, or social situations, and is in fact, often a benefit (p. 12).
