KNOWING HUMAN TEMPERAMENTS
Temperament is one of the basic template with which you are created. You are created by God with certain tendencies, natural strengths, and weakness. There are different between temperament and character.
Temperament is God’s method of creating variety, some people are born with natural tendencies for leadership or joviality. Others are born with natural tendencies to flow along and to be easy going . this is the basic structure of human emotional make up.
Character is the personality which is affected by the influence of this life. The character of a person is therefore the product of his personality plus all external influences.
Character = personally + External influence.
External influence = parental training + school and education + influence of friendship + place of worship + clergy + Religious material + the community + life’s experience + maleness or femaleness + Christian commitment + background .
This means that everyone can have a good character because the character is a product is a product of many controlled variables. When someone is been influenced by the word of God, the natural weakness of his or her personality will be stemmed. Also , the strength if his or her personality will be augmented you to improve your leadership skills or to help other people even though you may not be a natural born leader.
The most powerful single human influence on any person’s behavior is his or her temperament, which is usually a combination of at least temperament : primary and secondary. People are subconsciously attracted to another person’s strength that correspond to their weakness.
In proverbs 30:11-14 recognize four specific kinds of people: Melancholic, phlegmatic, sanguine and choleric. Unfortunately, “Agur” viewed temperament from the expression of negativity because some people are easily diagnosed through their weakness than their strengths. There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes and yet not washed are their eyes. And their eyelids are lifted up. A generation whose teeth are as swords and their teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth and the needy from among men.
