Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm so glad to see a Christian book on temperaments/personalities. It was a joy to read and very insightful. I've read personality books in the past and found them oh so interesting. I love that God is tied into this book.

Best for the money July 4 2005
By JOY - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've read just about every book on the subject of temperaments and this one is "hands down" the best. It's an easy read, and it covers all the nuances of the four basic temperaments to my delight - and the frustration of my phlegmatic husband [read the book!]. I read paragraphs to the kids at the dinner table and it started a funny and fruitful discussion about what makes each of us tick. Other books define and give examples but this is the only one I've seen that includes what really matters --how our temperaments help us love other and come closer to God.

Fantastic guide to getting to know yourself! Aug. 30 2005
By Mutien Marie - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed how this book brought in the important aspects of one's life into the temperament profile: especially the spiritual strengths and weaknesses specific to each temperament. It also came with an extensive test at the end where you can determine which of the four temperaments you are, as well as your secondary temperament. It really opened my eyes to my own natural inclinations, and the habits of family members! (written 2005)

Update 2013- Still one of my favorite books!! I've lent this to family members, my co-workers, even my boss (he passed it on to his wife, and she passed it on to her friend). One of my friends kept my original copy, and I had to get another one! The info from the book continues to be a great way for me to understand myself and others... and to appreciate our differences.

Can't Stop Talking About It! Oct. 4 2005
By S. Lloyd - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'd like to go with 6 stars for this book which I can't stop talking about. The words choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic and - woe is me - melancholic have carved a permanent place in our vocab. A fun read and very user friendly for the layman who wants a better understanding of human relationships.

This book is a MUST read! Feb. 18 2006
By Diana Pascoe - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a GREAT BOOK! I'm a homeschooler and this is really helping me to understand my 4 boys' temperaments, especially how to approach them the right way regarding their schoolwork. You think you know your children and then you read this and realize just how much you need to learn. I highly recommend it.

AWESOME! Jan. 4 2007
By N. Hellerstedt - Published on
Format: Paperback
Do you ever wonder why two people could be in the exact same situation but react totally differently? This helps explain it. This book was so dead-on to my temperament that I felt like they had done an interview with my subconscious. It's quick and interesting read. You'll end-up using it as a reference book.

This book also explains how to relate to differing temperaments and has truly opened my eyes to the way my loved ones "tick". It also has great tips for the work environment. Most importantly it has helped me pin-point the style in which I should approach my relationship with God.

If you know anyone who is engaged...A MUST READ!
