Abstract:   (4531 Views)
Background and Purpose: Traditional medicine in Iran is based on Temperamentology. Temperament is a significant factor in the individual characteristics of humans. The purpose of this study was to compare warm and cold temperaments with aerobic power.
Methods and Materials: A descriptive study was conducted on 90 healthy volunteer men aged 18 to 22 years old using a temperament standardized questionnaire. They were divided into 6 groups: sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, choleric, warm and cold. The aerobic power level of these subjects was judged by the Queen Stair test.
Results: The maximum oxygen consumed in the test was significantly different when contrasting sanguine group with melancholic group, and phlegmatic with choleric group (p=0.01). This significant difference was also observed in warm and cold tempered people (p=0.01). The aerobic power of the groups was statistically significantly different with each other (p<0.01).
Conclusion: It seems that the aerobic power of melancholic people is more than those of sanguine people and phlegmatic people more than choleric people and ultimately cold-tempered people more than warm-tempered people.
Keywords: Warm Temperament, Cold Temperament, Aerobic Power, Maximum Oxygen Consumption.
