Her nervous temperament results in her psychological headaches.

Does "psychological headaches" make sense? If yes, what does it mean? Thanks.

Do you mean psychosomatic headaches? Or simply headaches? I don't see a need for psychological unless she is studying/teaching/practicing psychology.

Thanks, Mister.

I think your suggestion makes more sense than the original.

Hi,

It sprang to mind that which one of the following is closer in meaning to "temperament" in the above sample, disposition, personality, character. Thanks.
Disposition I think is closest to temperament here.

Thanks, Mister.

But I find it hard to distinguish "temperament" and "personality." Could you explain their basic differences in a few words? Thanks again.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
To me, temperament and disposition refer to a relatively simple, prevailing attitude (she is dour/cheery/nervous/dull) while personality and character are a more complete/complex description of a person's qualities. Therefore, disposition/temperament would be subsumed in character/personality. I can also see that the terms can be used loosely enough that sometimes any one of them would serve.
