This one is not a melancholy man, as was Shakespeare's, but rather a bilious one.

How true. Nevertheless, the operative word is "prince." :)

Nice Elizabethan terms for the four character types. Melancholy, bilious, phlegmatic and sanguine. Not bad, actually, How about a listing of tennis players under that standard...

This is probably going to reveal way too much about me, but....those are all words I use!

Love the idea. Here are mine:

Melancholy--Yanina Wickmayer
Bilious--Caroline Wozniacki (apple, falls, tree, etc.)
Phlegmatic--Aga Radwanska
Sangine--Sam Stosur
