Star Wars or Star Trek? This site does some correlating of the Types and the Seasons (which is controversial).
Melancholic and Sanguine are opposites, opposite within you!
Melancholic/Sanguine (CI T4/1 Bright Winter?) the detailed and organized melancholy is tempered by the outgoing and warm sanguine. She makes an excellent teacher as her organized side is well versed in the facts and her sanguine side makes him enjoyable to attend to. If she goes into sales it will be sales that calls for exacting detail and the presentation of many facts. She is an emotional person - from being moved to tears to being critical and hard on others. Both temperaments can be fearful which may make this an insecure person with a poor self image. (Melancholic square face, Sanguine oval face) (Simone Signoret, Louisa May Alcott, Jane Fonda, Ursula LeGuin)
Bright Winter: a truly fascination combination; Winter's simple, serious stillness is pierced with Spring's fun-loving, carefree, happy warmth; the person searches for balance, but Winter's influence is usually stronger; the veneer strives for Spring's optimism, but the worried intense Winter interior swerves the person back towards their introspective side (Scaman) *if the four types translate into the 12 seasons

Melancholic/Phlegmatic see also (CS T4/2 Cool Winter?) are often teachers and scholars. They are not as prone to hostility as other melancholy blends and combine analysis with organization. They make excellent accountants and bookkeepers. Unfortunately she can become easily discouraged and may be susceptible to fear and anxiety. They may become uncooperative because of stubborn, rigid tendencies. (Melancholic square face, Phlegmatic round face) (Sigourney Weaver, Olivia Newton-John)
True Winter: the interior and exterior of this Season can seem thoroughly opposite; apparently assertive and unemotional, may feel uncertain or conflicted; reactions and opinions are all-or-nothing as their colors; fierce and floaty, heartless and vulnerable; oval and linear, at once; competitive, fair, disciplined to self-sacrified, seldom play victim role; carries themselves with distance, majesty, regal bearing; uncontained, expansive, tough and proud.

Melancholic/Choleric see also (CD T4/3 Deep Winter?) is both a perfectionist and a driver which may lead him into the law or medicine. They mix decisiveness and determination. Because of the critical nature of the melancholy they may be very difficult to please. If they become negative about someone or something it will have a tendency to stay with them for a long time. Their combination can lead them to "nit-pick" others and be revengeful to those they have a grudge against. (Melancholic square face, Choleric triangular face) (Queen Elizabeth II, Meg Ryan, Lucille Ball, Vanessa Redgrave)
Dark Winter: neutral season combining Winter's cool opulence with Autumn's strength and rugged determination; tenacious people, driven to be honest more than sensitive or kind; winter demands to be noticed; scale tips easily from emotion and empathy to favour logic, authority, and purpose; a storm can be brewing from Autumn's heat beneath the surface; controlling nobility.
