The Temperament Approach
Is the tool used to identify a person's temperament.
Temperament, in simple terms, is the inborn (not genetic, i.e. brown hair, blue eyes, etc.) part of man that determines how he reacts to people, places and things.
In short, it is how people interact with their environments and the world around them. Temperament pinpoints our perception of ourselves and the people who love us.
It is also the determining factor in how well we handle the stresses and pressures of life.
Temperament can best be defined as Spiritual genetics or God's imprint upon each one of us.
Temperament refers to personality traits that determine how someone reacts to the world. Are they quiet or a person that has to be the center of attention? Easygoing or apprehensive?
