This course includes a personal temperament analyses for each participant. It covers these topics:
- What is Temperament?
- Why are there Five Temperaments?
- Temperament Needs & Creating a Cooperative Environment
Our temperament is inborn. Our temperament will remain with us throughout our lives. How we do or don’t express our temperament can be affected by the following:
- Our upbringing (how we were raised as children)
- Our environment
- Our education and training
Our upbringing, environment or education may have attempted to mask who we really are. This causes stress if either we or the people around us expect us to fit into a mold that was not made for us. Temperament determines how we interact with our environment and the people around us. Temperament also determines our perception and understanding of ourselves and of the people around us.
Every person is unique and has different temperament needs. When we attempt to get these needs met in a way that is harmful to ourselves or others, we create conflicts. These conflicts are caused by:
- Trying to get our needs met – no matter what
- Not getting certain needs met because we are spending all of our energy meeting some while ignoring others
- Reacting in anger and frustration to unmet needs
- Being vulnerable to addictions as a result of unmet needs
Strengths and Weaknesses
Every temperament has strengths and weaknesses. Strengths are enforced when your temperament needs are met. Weaknesses show that temperament needs have been neglected.
