On this page, we are going to look at, and celebrate all of the unique personalities that God has created us with. The hope is that this will be a bit of a journey in self discovery. Who we are as people greatly influences our spirituality and how we live our faith. These videos will help explain the four temperaments and what they have to do with...well every part of our lives!
The following ate two different quizzes that will help you identify and understand your temperament. Take both to really see where you land and read the descriptions to better see how it fits you! This will only take about 5 minutes.
Now that you have hopefully learned a little bit about yourself, my challenge to you will be to use this information to help you live your faith more fully. Look at how you pray. Does it fit your personality and temperament? Phlegmatic or Melancholic persons may better connect to meditative personal prayer where as the Choleric or Sanguine may gravitate toward communal or shared prayers. We can also use what we have learned about our temperaments to foster strong relationships and communication. Knowing your comforts and being able to express your needs will help you to be better able to thrive with those around you. This is great to look at with a significant other, or with coworkers to help see how you can work best together!
