Vipassana and samatha are developed in tandem; should one or another achieve preeminence, the imbalance is to be redressed, but not chosen - the problem will be with personal (i.e. habitual) emphases. I think it's a disservice to suggest that one or another is to be developed first on purpose, even in reference to such differing temperaments.
Satipatthana properly develops both, as two hands wash each other even when you pay attention to only one hand; anapanasati is a sequel which brings the awakening factors to fulfillment by development. Find the proper method in your own case by diligent satisampajanna - do not neglect this daily practice in order to favor formal seated efforts, which are appropriately seen as efforts to compose jhana on the basis of satipatthana - again, with vipassana and samatha in tandem.
Putting vipassana and jhana in contrast seems to be based on a misunderstanding.
