TEST: Personality Temperament Test - Questionnaire

Personality Temperament Test
 - Questionnaire -
This is a Personality Temperament Test taken from Tim LaHaye's book, "Why You Act The Way You Do". It helps assess your Temperament Profile of potential strengths & weaknesses. It's very simple and takes about 45 minutes to complete. There are 4 Sections below. In each section you will find a series of descriptive words. Your job is to read each word and put a number next to it according to how well it describes the REAL you. To get a more accurate assessment of your temperament have 3-4 close friends &/or family members also complete a test about your temperament.
After you have completed all 4 Sections scroll down to the bottom of this page for further instructions.
SCORING CRITERIA: Score How Each Word Best Describes You:
1 = "That is definitely NOT me!"
2 = "That is usually NOT me."
3 = "That is usually me."
4 = "That is mostly me."
5 = "That is definitely me!"
It's important that you be honest and objective. Don't mark a box according to how you want to be seen, rather mark it according to how you really are.

<><   If the word describes exactly who you NATURALLY ARE NOT then put a "1" next to it. "That is definitely NOT me!"
<><   If the word describes pretty INACCURATELY who you NATURALLY are then put a "2" next to it. "That is usually not me."
<><   If the word describes somewhat accurately who you NATURALLY are then put a "3" next to it. "That is usually me."
<><   If the word describes pretty accurately who you NATURALLY are then put a "4" next to it. "That is mostly me."
<><   If the word describes exactly who you NATURALLY are then put a "5" next to it. "That is definitely me!"
If it is NATURALLY who you are then it isn't something that you are "working on" nor is it something that requires a lot of effort in order for you to be that way. It just comes natural. Some of the descriptive words below are very flattering words and some are unflattering words. Don't answer according to how you want to be or don't want to be. BE COMPLETELY 100% HONEST WITH YOURSELF.... BE RAW ABOUT WHO YOU ARE RIGHT NOW AT THIS POINT IN YOUR LIFE.

After you have finished all of the above 4 Sections go back and cancel out each description that you scored either a 1 or 2 by drawing a line through that number. Since that score is so low it doesn't really apply to your overall scoring in each Section. Now add up all of the 3's, 4's, & 5's in each Section and write your total somewhere within each appropriate Section. The Section with the highest score is your Primary Temperament and the Section with the second highest score is your Secondary Temperament. No one is one pure temperament, but instead we are a blend of all the temperaments.

Each Section represents one of four Temperaments:
Sanguine Temperament (fun-loving extrovert; outgoing; very social; "the life of the party") - EXTROVERT
Choleric Temperament (focused; extrovert; goal oriented; "the achiever") - EXTROVERT
Melancholy Temperament (detailed; introspective; artistic; "the naturally gifted") - INTROVERT
Phlegmatic Temperament (easy going; stable; consistent; "the loyal friend") - INTROVERT

Since everyone is a combination of the four Temperaments you need to find out what your Temperament "Blend" is by assessing what your Primary & Secondary Temperaments are. The Section with the highest score is your Primary Temperament and the section with the second highest score is your Secondary Temperament. Now morph your Primary & Secondary together. In other words, if you scored highest in Section 2 (Choleric) and second highest in Section 4 (Phlegmatic) then your Temperament Blend would be "ChlorPhleg". Or if you scored highest in Section 1 (Sanguine) and second highest in Section 3 (Melancholy) then your Temperament Blend would be "SanMel". If you tied in any Section then see which Section had the most 5's to determine which Section more accurately represents you. It is also possible to be a Tri-Blend Temperament who has 3 dominant Temperaments.

Once you have figured out your Temperament Blend it's time to read about your Temperament Profile to see what some of your potential strengths and some of your potential weaknesses are, as well as to find out what Bible character might have displayed a similar Temperament Profile.
