Clients receive a detailed Personal Temperament Profile, a report identifying their temperament in Inclusion, Control and Affection with a listing of individual strengths, weaknesses and temperament needs. Temperament theory states that people will live in their temperament strengths when their temperament needs are met. The report includes suggestions for clients and their loved ones on how to best meet these needs in a godly way.
Three Areas of Temperament
The three areas of temperament are as follows:
Inclusion – the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory relationship with people in the area of surface relationships, associations and socialization (parties, social gatherings, and people who come in and out of our lives every day).
- How many people do I approach for socializing?
- How many people do I want to approach me for socializing?
Control – the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory relationship with people in respect to issues of control and power.
- How many people do I want to control?
- How many people will I allow to control me?
Affection – the need to establish and maintain a satisfactory relationship with others in regard to love and affection (deep one-on-one relationships such as spouses, girlfriends or boyfriends, parents, children, and trusted friends).
- How much love and affection do I express to others?
- How much love and affection do I want expressed to me?
As you read or discuss your profile, it is critical to remember that this is a general diagnosis and not a specific interpretation of your life or behavior. It is valuable because it will help you discover the strengths you may develop as well as the weaknesses you may resist. It will also reveal unmet needs that can cause stress and conflict in your life and your relationships with others. It is difficult to consider possible weaknesses in our lives, but if we are open to change, understanding our weaknesses can help us resolve conflicts and improve our relationships with loved ones.
