Etymology : Late 14th century, “ordering, management,” also “tendency of mind,” from Old French disposicion (12th century) “arrangement, order; mood, state of mind,” from Latin dispositionem (nominative dispositio) “arrangement, management,” noun of action from past participle stem of disponere “to put in order, arrange”. References to “temperament” (late 14th century in English) are from astrological use of the word for “position of a planet as a determining influence.”
