Observing similar temperaments, psychologist David Keirsey grouped the 16 types into 4 categories: Guardian (SJ), Rational (NT), Artisan (SP), Idealist (NF).

Temperament is the set of natural "first choice" inclinations we are born with (literally "a mixture or complexion"); wheras character is the set of habits we acquire and (literally "engrave or distinguish") as we grow and mature over a lifetime.

Temperament is predisposition, character is disposition.

Note:
The 16 types are divided by Myers-Briggs into 4 temperaments (shown above).
The 16 types are divided by Jung into 4 functions.

Myers Briggs studies a type's being (what one likes doing);
vs. Jung who studies a type's doing (what one is good at doing).

Myers Briggs studies the why  (motivation and goal); input/output
vs. Jung who studies thw how (function); processing.

Jung's version is more complicated, but if inclined, see Jungian Functions
