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
  • emotion-sensing
  • cheerful and jovial
  • unusual warmth
  • expansive
  • robust and tireless
  • irrepressible, infectious quality

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).

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) for the hyperthymic tempered personality is often ENTJ.
