TEMPERAMENTS (PART ONE)

This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Today, we shall discuss TEMPERAMENTS (behavior).

Most times in relationship we find it so difficult to endure with our partners because of their behaviors.  After going through this lesson, you shall learn how to select your partner and also how to accept people for who they are.

Let us first understand what temperament is.

Temperament is the characteristic way an individual behaves towards other people. Also, it is an individual difference in the quality and intensity of emotional reaction, activity level, attention and emotional self- regulation.

There are four types of temperament; and each of these temperaments has their strength and weaknesses, each of which is being discussed here. The strength is an advantage but the weaknesses are what we ought to know to be able to tolerate one another.
