Going through TIM LAHAYE's book for the third time i find it interesting on how it can help one analyze his weaknesses and strengths.
I know some people still have no idea why they act the way they do or why they have a kind of behavior or character but this book explains it all.

Temperament :
is a persons natural combination of trait inherited from their parents which affects their behaviors either positively or negatively.
It influences everything we do from sleeping,eating,studying,talking to how one relates to others.

Character :
is your civilized temperament,the real you, it is the result of your temperament which is either modified by your education,your childhood training, basic attitudes,beliefs, Principles and motivations. It is made up of the mind , emotions and will of a man.

personality :
is a Man's outward expression which depending on how genuine he is may not be same as his character. It is the face we show to other's either acting what we think we should be, how we want people to see us than our real self.

The four temperaments

He is perhaps most dependable of all temperaments,he is a very faithful friend but does not make friends easily, hardly pushed himself towards people rather expecting people to come to him.
He is analytical,self sacrificing,gifted and a perfectionist.
He has varieties of moods,sometimes they will cause him to act more extrovert and sometimes he may be gloomy and depressed which would make him withdraw.
He has strong desires and also finds it difficult to express his feelings to people, he usually find great meanings to life through selfs sacrifices and he is very though and persistent in pursuing what he chose or whatever he tends to do.


He is ac calm, easygoing person,he hardly gets upsets or angry.
