Tim and Amy didn’t realize how differently they saw and approached the world until they discovered the four Greek Temperaments. They’re back to discuss what temperament they each are, and how knowing and understanding these temperaments changed their marriage.
Welcome! In the second episode of Lost But Holding Hands, we discuss the four Greek temperaments. These temperaments are the basis for most modern personality tests, and were discussed by philosophers like Socrates. In our intro show, we mentioned our results from a few personality tests, and that we are opposites. We particularly like the temperaments and the color code (see show notes), because their results discuss relationship pairings – the power of each pairing, but also the pitfalls to watch out for.
Because of the book, The Temperament God Gave You, we realized how vastly different we see and approach the world, which was the cause for many of our reoccurring disagreements. We just kept tripping over ourselves. This book started us down the path of understanding ourselves, understanding each other, and now years later, learning how to blend our differences into a power for good.
