What is Temperament?
Temperament is the inborn part of a person that determines how he/she reacts to people, places and things. How we perceive ourselves and others effects communication and relationships at every level. We believe that our temperament was uniquely created by God and placed in us when we were conceived.
Genesis: 1:1 “In the beginning God created…”
Psalm 139:13-14 says, “For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Our Temperament or “inner being”, our Character “learned behavior”, and our Self-Selected Personality or the “mask” we wear to the world are important elements for understanding human behavior.
Why the APS and Creation Therapy?
The Arno Profile System identifies five different Temperaments: Melancholy, Choleric, Phlegmatic, Sanguine, and Supine. The A.P.S. (Arno Profile System) provides very practical and helpful information regarding strengths and weaknesses in three areas: Inclusion (social orientation), Control (power and decision - making), and Affection (deep relationship).
Creation Therapy is utilized to help a person live within their God-given strengths, in order to bring healing and the freedom to become their true, authentic self as intended by God.
When a person understands the wonderful person that God has created them to be, it frees them to be able to love, value, accept, and forgive their self, God, and others on a deeper level.
