English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. temperament

    Character is what one is; reputation, what he is thought to be; his record is the total of his known action or inaction. As a rule, a man's record will substantially express his character; his reputation may be higher or lower than his character or record will justify. Repute is a somewhat formal word, with the same general sense as reputation. One's nature includes all his original endowments or propensities; character includes both natural and acquired traits. We speak of one's physical constitution as strong or weak, etc., and figuratively, always with the adjective, of his mental or moral constitution. Compare CHARACTERISTIC.

    Synonyms:
    character, constitution, disposition, genius, nature, personality, record, reputation, spirit, temper

    Preposition:
    The witness has a character for veracity; his character is above suspicion; the character of the applicant.

  2. Tom Hanks:

    I am calling you' chosen ones' because you have been chosen in many ways, first, by the temperament and discipline you've lived by, by the creative fires that are inside of you and the instinctive lunges of your desires... You succeeded because of the aid and the love of others that are in your lives, without a doubt. But you have succeeded mostly because you, and you alone, chose to do so.
