Persona 4 Golden: Eri Minami (Temperance) social link choices & unlock guide

Persona 4 Golden lets you get to know all sorts of characters, though many of them are school kids. One of the more unique relationships is the Eri Minami social link, which represents the Temperance Arcana in P4G’s gameplay systems.

If you want help with this s-link, this is the page for you. In it, we detail every s-link rank with Minami and all dialogue options so you can say the right things to earn bonus points to level up your social link more quickly.

This isn’t just limited to Eri - if you want the same sort of information on every other character, hit up our very detailed Persona 4 Golden s-link choices guide.

Eri Minami S-Link Guide - Temperance 

As noted just above, this guide details the full Eri Minami Social Link in Persona 4 Golden, going over every conversation option to detail the quickest way to rank up your s-link relationship. This carries bonuses for Persona Fusion, and a final unlock if you hit rank 10.

In Persona 4, your relationships rank up through hidden stats that grow when you spend time with s-links - but this stat can grow more quickly if you speak to your friends in the right way. That’s what this guide is for; it helps you to level up that s-link quick.

The points listed next to each dialogue choice are how many bonus points each answer is worth. If an answer isn’t listed, it rewards no extra points. The values listed include the Persona affinity bonus, which you get for having a Persona of the matching arcana with you. When hanging out with Minami, always have a Temperance Persona with you. 

  • Eri Minami is available to spend time with on Monday, Friday and Saturday, and this s-link is started via the Shopping District South bus stop.

Rank 1:

  • To get this social link started, you’ll want to take on the Assistant Daycare Worker job as detailed in our Persona 4 Golden part-time job guide. You can do this from May 2nd.
  • Once you have the Assistant Daycare Caretaker job, go to it twice - this s-link will start through your work there, just like the hospital job and the Devil arcana s-link.
