Temperaments are given to us by God and are the part of our personality that does not change. There are 4 temperaments and we all have a blend of two of them. It is good to know about temperaments as it gives insight into how and why those you love think and act the way they do. Understanding your own temperament helps you manage your weaknesses and enhance your strengths. Gaining understanding into the temperaments of your children will help you train them to do the same.
It is said opposites attract when it comes to choosing who you will marry. Over the long haul of a marriage however, these same “opposites” that attracted you to each other in the first place soon wear thin. Understanding each other temperaments gives perspective on building on each other’s strengths and accepting each other’s weaknesses.
