Temperament can be defined as a person’s nature, and its permanent effect on their behavior. The misunderstandings that take place between individuals, especially between introverts and extroverts, are mostly due to a lack of communication that stems from not fully understanding that individual’s nature. Understanding one’s own introverted nature and the nature of others not like them, makes things so much easier when it comes to the interactions in ministry and beyond. During this interactive session, we will look at the 5 Temperaments and work through scenarios that will assist Introverts with handling various situations to reduce conflict in ministry, enhance ministerial engagement, and edify the Body of Christ.
