    Does "social temperature" mean "social atmosphere"?

    ex)We are fortunate that in such a large office we all get along so well. You are one of the colleagues who keep the social temperature at such a comfortable setting....

    I think so, at least that's what I gather from the context. However, I have never heard of "social temperature" before and I don't think that it's a common term.

    I've not heard the phrase before either, but I agree with how you and CS have interpreted it. You might call such an atmosphere (social temperature at a comfortable setting) "congenial".
