Read the book and took the Temperament test May 5, 2005
I was on my way traveling somewhere and picked this book up off of the book rack in the local Post Exchange (PX). I began to read it and began to laugh because so much of how i am jumped off of the pages. It was fun to find my husband and see why we act the way that we do. I knew that it was a Christian book and I am a Christian so it fell in line with my beliefs. I love it and decided to send away for the test. The book i had gave a coupon for a discount or something like that. They sent the test and i gave my answers - basically saying whether or not i was outgoing, or analytical, procrastinator, organized and the list goes on and on. I sent it back and received a detailed Temperament Analysis for me. It was pretty neat. I am a Sanguine/Melancholy. It said i loved sports which is not true. A lot of it was true though. What i liked the most about it is that it provides a base from the fruits of the spirit and provided those fruits that fall natually within my temperament, and those that needed work. I studied the analysis and really learned a lot from it. It allowed me to understand my husband A LOT!! I would recommend this book for the Christian who is at a point in their life where they cant seem to know who they are or where they are going. Although the Holy Bible is really the book for that - this can allow for you to see a description of yourself and offer direction in understanding it. my 2 cents.
"easy-reading" and practical book about temperament types Jan 17, 2005
This is a Christian book. It is written by a well-known Christian author and the table of contents clearly indicates Christian content. And it is also not meant to be a psychology/scholarly book - It is an "easy reading" book for your everyday person to read, and apply to their life. With those expectations, read this book...
The author presents the 4 basic temperament types that were first identified by the ancient Greeks. Others have written about these temperament types as well. But as a Christian, I appreciate the Christian perspective this book gives...Each temperament has its strengths and weaknesses. The author gives practical advice on how we, as Christians, can overcome our weaknesses through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I like the "practicalness" of the book about how our temperament can affect our relationships, employment, marriage, sex life, etc. This book helped me understand myself - I have a very melancholy temperament type. I was laughing at times because the descriptions in the book sounded so much like me it was uncanny. Sometimes people with these traits feel ostracized from society in different ways. It was encouraging for me to learn that I am not alone...
Approach this book with the right expectations, and I really think you will enjoy it.
Look Inside This Book Jun 15, 2004
This book isn't my personal cup of tea, but judge for yourself: read the book pages in the "Look Inside This Book" link above.
If you like that, and enjoy the author's particular "Christian advice" view of life, you'll likely enjoy the book more than I.
Worse than a PC psychology major from Marin Co. Apr 27, 2004
Leave it to Tim Lahaye, GOD's rep to America's Protestant right. Who else would have resurrected the unscientific gibberish of the ancient Greeks, NON-Christians by the way, to provide a fundament for their self-righteous accusation against the Infidel? Even Bin Laden relies on offers of celestial girlies to spur the faithful, real stuff that'll make the most pious parson drop his Book on the floor, rather than reaching for pagan superstition that would persuade only a TV-addled New Ager. Good Grief, read Augustine or Pascal or even Freud. This character is nothing more than a modern-day version of the mountebanks who milked revival meetings in 19th century America.
Why You Act the Way You Do Aug 24, 2001
There is a lot of interesting information about temperaments in this book. However, in many cases it is written in a judgemental and black and white way. It doesn't seem to be carefully written, as there are some inconsistencies and things the author doesn't seem to have thought through. It also tends to be repetitive. Unfortunately, Tim La Haye's temperament test is not included in the book and has to be bought separately.
