Enjoy instant access to our free four temperament test to discover your basic personality type. Which one of the four temperaments are you? Lion? Otter? Golden Retriever? Beaver? Or if you prefer the Greek names, are you Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic, or Melancholy?
Since all these different names refer to the same four basic personality types, we use the animal names because they are so much easier for people to remember (and more fun). You'll find out for yourself soon enough by taking the four temperament test and watching the Video Teaching (with extensive notes) that explains each of the four temperament types in detail..
Our four temperament test is easy to take and score. You'll quickly get an answer, Are you detailed and analytical, joyful and fun-loving, steady and reliable, or strong and purpose-driven? And, you are not just one of the four temperaments, you are a blend of two or more, making you quite unique.
Learn to Laugh at Yourself
As I've administered the four temperament test and taught this course at our church, we've all laughed at ourselves, finding that a lot of our personal quirkiness is just the way God made us. This teaching has helped spouses live together in greater understanding and harmony, and parents improve their parenting skills by not demanding their children squeeze into a mold that doesn't fit them. (You can't force a square peg into a round hole. In other words, playful otter children don't generally turn into brain surgeons.)
By taking the four temperament test, you will discover a lot of puzzling things about yourself suddenly make sense as you see a larger picture emerge. The more you realize how God made you, the more at peace you will be with yourself. As the Holy Spirit helps you identify your areas of strength and weakness, He will help you modify your behavior, so you can relate more easily to others.
The Spirit-Controlled Temperament
Tim LaHaye called this a "Spirit-controlled temperament" as the Holy Spirit helps us mellow out our temperament extremes. (For example, I tend to share too many details, but now when I see a person's eyes glaze over, I realize I'm telling more than they want to know and lighten up.)
We observe all four of these temperaments in descriptions of God and Jesus, so we know we are made in the image of God!
- Is the Creator of the universe detailed, analytical, and an artistic craftsman? Without a doubt!
- Was Jesus a frequently-invited dinner guest, an entertaining storyteller and engaging public speaker, holding audience's attention for hours? Absolutely!
- Was Jesus the steady, gentle, calm, loving Master who served the sick and the poor in His ministry, in whose presence suffering and hurting people felt safe. Certainly!
- Did Jesus have a strong vision, goal, and ultimate purpose for His life that He pursued with relentless determination and courage? Definitely!
