This refers to the common 4 classifications of people,  Analytical, Driver, Leader and Amiable. These categories can be sub-divided further (ie Driver-Driver, Driver-Analytical, Analytical-Amiable) into 16 sub-types, and bears a strong resemblance to the Myers-Briggs categories.

It is useful to understand these personality types as it can assist with interacting with other people (the higher brain qualities of empathy and inhibition).

These four states are also described in Hindu teachings, relating to the four states of consciousness – thinking (analytical), sleeping (amiable), dreaming (driver) and sensing (expressive).
