The sense of touch allows us to recognize three types of different, broadly temperatures: the cold, the warm and hot. The problem with hot and cold temperatures is that many times can be extreme to our feelings and what is always warm is much easier to accept or assimilate in terms of sensorial. Then, there are other guidelines that have to do mostly with cultural issues such as those already mentioned: when a soup or a coffee or other food normally consumed hot is lukewarm, as much as it is better tolerated by the body, is negative. The same happens with those normally consumed cold elements. Remember that the quality of warm is not scientific, since we are not talking about specific but rather numbers of sensations.
Another meaning of the term warm, which is related to what is mentioned above, is the lack of passion or momentum. This adjective can also be applied to people who act moderately, without decision or passion. Although it might seem something more rational by not resorting to extreme or exaggerated actions, the idea that a person is warm relates more than anything with the inability to resolve things or situations, with the lack of decision, fear and insecurity.
