Do you know what your personality type is? Did you even realise that the Bible clearly teaches us that God has given us a unique personality type? Well it does and He has – and once we understand who we are, our natural strengths and weaknesses, we’re on the path to a much better, a much more effective life. Especially, if we can discover how to overcome our natural areas of weakness. Well, that’s what this series is all about. So why don’t you join Berni Dymet, as he discovers that, according to God at least, old dogs really can learn new tricks!

Episode 1. The Generous Giver

Each one of us is different, that’s obvious but so is the fact that we each have a dominant personality type. For instance some people are givers, you can just see it in the generosity …

Hi Daniel, I’m not suggesting that we should work against our natural gifting. Quite the opposite. But each natural gifting has it’s natural strengths and weaknesses. Maturity, I think, is when we learn to have mastery over our weaknesses. Blessings. Berni



Daniel Eliet

Thanks Bernie, this is a good series, just about everybody can find himself somewhere in there I would think. I found a good description of the prophet personality for myself. However, the proposed solution I find may not be entirely sure. If given that personality by God, it must surely have a specific purpose. To compromise it by working against it may defeat the purpose of having it. As we be given a burden by God to go through such.., wouldn’t it be disrespectful and tentatively rebellious to deviate from it due to the fact that it may be somewhat feeling challenging or discomforting to live it? On the other hand I guess, anything can be led to extremes.

Mark,

Sure. In practice, we generally have a dominant personality type, and a secondary one. Perhaps even a tertiary one.

I for instance am predominantly leader, and second an achiever. That’s how it works for most of us. We can identify characteristics generally in 2 or 3 of the personality types.

My book “Personality GPS” will soon be republished as an eBook.

Bless ya,
Berni
