Format: Paperback
LaHaye does an excellent job of explaining the good AND bad of each of the 4 temperament types. His plain language description and 'life-like' examples make it easy to understand your neighbor, coworker or better...your spouse. I found this book a tremendous help - the temperament analysis test offered in the back was AMAZING in it's accuracy. I would suggest this a must-read for anyone who really needs to understand others (which is all of us...!) As a believer myself - I know that we're doomed to exist in the 'bad' side of our temperaments - it's natural - and LaHaye does a good job of helping the reader understand how he/she can 'choose' to find the good side and lift it up to the top.

I just read a review of this book that made my eyes water. I can see how not everybody would be flattered by this book. It's pretty convicting.
I found it refreshing as it was straight forward and didn't "pad the blows." Not only did it point straight to the truth of human nature, it abolished the idea that we, as humans, can make it in this world without the Lord. I was so very impressed with the truth given quickly, and then the blessings added. Not only did it point out how truly selfish we were, it then lifted us to new heights with the reality that God can change it all.
Amen to Dr. LaHaye! Thank God for his wisdom and his ability to share God's heart. Finally, a book that calls it as it is.

Format: Paperback
I found this to be a very difficult book to read. Not because of the style in which it was written, but because of the very straight forward means by which the author gets his message across. I would recommend this book to anyone who like myself are battling with the WHO AM I and WHY DO I DO questions in life and are ready to hear THE TRUTH! My only complaint would be that the author could not have provided his readers with even a "condensed version" of his Temperament Analysis at the end of this book. I regret that my budget would not allow me to take advantage of his TA.

15 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Nathan M on December 30, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is an interesting subject and LaHaye has some good insights, but overall this book is underwhelming. For starters, his system of classification and division of the temperaments is not even internally coherent. Then his descriptions of the four temperaments are inconsistent and overlapping. For the best book on temperament and personality type read Please Understand Me II by David Keirsey instead. One positive aspect of the book is the combination of psychology and Christianity. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we can overcome many of our weaknesses. However, much of his advice is too general or theoretical. For a more practical book combining Christianity and psychology, read Escaping the Matrix by Greg Boyd and Al Larson.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Have you ever wanted to be able to see inside someone; to understand why they do the things they do (or maybe yourself?)?? Finally, a book free of jargon and psycho-lingo allows you to understand the four basic personality types and their combinations. The basis of the four types comes from Greek philsophy but their "working-out" and reasons for behavior are Christian-based. This book has given me "Oh Wow!" moments as I considered myself, my wife, children and co-workers. I am giving copies this year to loved ones and people I work with! This book is a blessing; mostly enjoyed, I would think, by believers in God.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great learning tool into understanding why people act the way they do. It would be an awesome book for married couples to read. It really helps you to see that some things people do and say are just part of who they are and they can't control them. It also helps you learn how to change your weaknesses by being Spirit-controlled. Your weaknesses can be turned into strengths by the power of the Holy Spirit!

Format: Paperback
Dr. LaHaye's book is an excellent reference guide for understanding people. The principles, if applied in a believer's life work miracles. For the unbeliever, it may sound "preachy". Being a naturopathic doctor it was fascinating to study the Hippocratic temperments in light of personality. And see them put in application with my clients. Interesting corrilation between temperment and health problems, although Dr.LaHaye does NOT go into medical correlations, these were my own observation. Great stuff no matter what.

Format: Paperback
This book, like all of Dr. LaHaye's work -on the topic of Temperaments- will provide the reader with insight, into understanding WHY our actions either make or break us, as we move through the daily events of human interaction.

This book also provides, the all-important HOW's in determining WHERE the changes can be made, WHEN they should be made and by WHOM the changes can and should be made. This is not only material worth reading, it should be required as a 'right of passage' for all members of the human race.

The information contained within WILL provide the reader with the KEYS to success in every aspect of life; beginning with the first one: Understanding the TRUE SELF and its relationship with all others.

This book is NOT about personality. This book describes the very base element of who we are, that combined with environmental variables, form what others see as our ever-changing personality. Temperaments are the foundation upon which everything else builds. Know Temperaments, Know Success. No Temperaments, No Success. It is that simple.
