Actually, not to be precocious, but Keirsey-Bates, Meyer-Briggs, and even
Jung developed extensions of Hippocrates works on personality theory.  He
did it first and discussed four personality types he assigned to the
characteristics of four of the gods.  He grouped people in to groups known
as the Appolonians, Prometheans, Dionysians, and the largest group - the
Epimetheans.  Keirsey-Bates are the only ones that gave him credit for his
ground work, though.
