Understand Your God-Given Temperament














                [understanding your temperament]


Do you struggle with understanding why you react in certain ways in different situations?

Do you wish you were more like someone else and question God about why He made you this way?

As you understand your temperament strengths and weaknesses, it will help you immensely in every area of your life:


>  how you interact with people
>  how to make better decisions
>  what types of employment are you best suited for
>  how to communicate more effectively
>  learn how to deal with your anger
>  and so much more!

You will be able to use your strengths to bless others and cooperate with the Holy Spirit to transform your weaknesses.

It is especially powerful in couples, family and marriage counseling situations because one better understands-- each other’s needs --they are better able to meet them if they have a willing spirit! Needs must be met in godly ways or sinful behaviors will typically result!  How can you meet someone’s needs (or your own) unless you know what they are?

The methodology we use (the Arno Profile System from the NCCA) identifies three separate human interactions and identifies each one in two different ways. You complete a short questionnaire, we generate the report and then go over it with you.

You’ll get answers to questions like these:

Inclusion
(our need to be around others)

“Am I a loner or a social butterfly.. or somewhere in between?
“Is the need I show, the need that I really have?”
“What are the strengths and weakness of this need?”

Control (need to be in charge or be dependent in relationships and desire to take on responsibilities)

“Am I independent, dependent or somewhere in between?
“Is the need I show, the need that I really have?”
“What are in the strengths and weaknesses of this need?”

Affection (interaction in deep relationships)

“How much affection do I need from my close personal relationships?
“Is the need I show, the need that I really have?”
“What are in the strengths and weaknesses of this need?”

There are five different temperament types and you could be different in each area; you were fearfully and wonderfully made! The five temperament types are:

Melancholy Temperament
Supine Temperament
Sanguine Temperament
Choleric Temperament
Phlegmatic Temperament
