Dear Fred

How do you feel about Temperment Typing?

Fred's Response

Although temperament typing is susceptible to charlatanism there is also the authentic and helpful use of this tool. You have to be careful in selecting someone who is qualified in administration and interpretation. I would want to contact some who feel they have been correctly and helpfully profiled. I personally have had some excellent results with competent professionals. Christians who work with personality assessments usually agree that these are not boxes that people are put into; they are a way to identify the way that God designed each person. They should be used as a means of helping you maximize your giftedness and your usefulness to the Lord.
