PMP Part 2: Understanding Your Temperament

The temperament evaluation is designed to assist you in identifying your temperament or personality strengths and weaknesses as they specifically relate to ministry and service in the local church. It is not designed to put you into a box or a mold, but rather to enable you to understand why you are motivated the way you are and what some of the accompanying weaknesses might naturally be. In turn, you can use this information to assist in finding a ministry or service area that best utilizes your unique strengths.

Also be aware that other people in the Body have a different personality than you, and therefore will often react differently than you in particular situations. While this can become a problem if not understood, we hope that this portion of Find Your Place will enable the members of the church to operate peacefully within their differences.

"Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other, as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."
Colossians 3:12-14

Due to copyright laws, the temperament sorter is not available online. I suggest using David Keirsey’s Temperament Sorter in his book, Please Understand Me.

An online version is available online: http://www.advisorteam.com/user/ktsintro.asp

Keep in mind that the church will not be looking at your answers, but rather using the overall information to highlight areas in which you are especially gifted and motivated. Once your primary areas of ministry strength are identified, you can then use this information to identify specific service opportunities which may be of interest to you.

"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh . . . But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law."
Galatians 5:16, 22-23
