There might be an element of truth there, but I would not say that Hippocrates is responsible for the four temperaments from a socionics perspective.
I was referring to Hippocrates' 4, not the Socionics 4. Hippocrates' temperaments work, though they are very simplistic. Certainly, it has changed since his time. I think each temperament corresponds to a Socionic temperament, but I have no way to prove it, and when the types are involved, it wouldn't translate cleanly.
