The Temperament Consortium is a network of professionals who are interested in the study of individual differences in
temperament. These individuals are engaged in teaching, research, practice, and education of students and/or the
public about the impact of temperament. Students working in the area of temperament are also welcomed.
Currently almoat 400 professionals from 25 countries comprise the TC group.
Members believe that they can learn more about temperament through mutual interaction with one another.
Membership: Any person with a bona fide professional interest in temperament differences may join the TC. Started as
a listserv email group in 2009, the TC has no formal structure or dues associated with membership. Members can leave at any time by unsubscribing to the listserv.
