The article maintains that the knowledge of characterology allows the educator to utilise a young person’s natural tendencies so as to orientate a full development as persons. This knowledge furthermore widens educational margins, and supports the personalization of teaching because it allows for differentiation between interventions depending on pupils’ individual characteristics. The contribution of characterology by Heymans and Le Senne are here re-proposed in an educational-methodological key. The different meanings of words such as temperament, character and personality are here clarified and the basic principles for the observation of pupils’ temperaments are presented. The education of character is, on the whole, presented as education in virtue.
