Personality [part 2]

Gary Smalley has a good tool on personalities as well.

I am:

Beaver- Organized. Beavers think that there is a right way to do everything and they want to do it exact that way. They like to build things and tear things down that don't work right [see Jeremiah 1 for my life purpose] Beaver personalities are very creative. Border on obessesive-compulsive. They desire to solve everything. Desire to take their time and do it right. Beavers do not like sudden changes. [but I do] They need reassurance. Biblical Example: Moses Case Study: Exodus 3-4 Strength: High standards, order, respect Weakness: Unrealistic expectations of self & others, too perfect, workaholics, perfectionists. Limitation: Seeing the optimistic side of things, expressing flexibility

Amy is [and we think Chip is]

Golden Retriever- Good at making friends. Very loyal. Retriever personalities do not like big changes. They look for security. Can be very sensitive. Very caring. Has deep relationships, but usually only a couple of close friends. Wants to be loved by everyone. Looks for appreciation. Works best in a limited situation with a steady work pattern.Biblical Example: AbrahamCase Study: Genesis 12-22Strength: Accommodating, calm, affirmingWeakness: Indecisive, indifferent, unable to express emotional, too soft on other peopleLimitation: Seeing the need to be more assertive, holding others accountable

Madison DEFINATELY is:

Otter- Otters are very social creature. Otter personalities love people. They enjoys being popular and influencing and motivating others. Otter can sometimes be hurt when people do not like them. Otter personalities usually have lots of friends, but not deep relationships. They love to goof-off. (They are notorious for messy rooms.) Otters like to hurry and finish jobs. (Jobs are not often done well.) The otter personality is like Tigger in Winnie The Pooh.Biblical Example: PeterCase Study: John 21:1-22Strength: People person, open, positiveWeakness: Talks too much, too permissiveLimitation: Remembering past commitments, follow through with discipline

Mikey may be:

Lion- This personality likes to lead. The lion is good at making decisions and is very goal-oriented. They enjoy challenges, difficult assignments, and opportunity for advancement. Because lions are thinking of the goal, they can step on people to reach it. Lions can be very aggressive and competitive. Lions must learn not to be too bossy or to take charge in other's affairs.Biblical Example: PaulCase Study: Acts 9:3-19Strength: Goal-oriented, strong, directWeakness: Argumentative, too dictatorialLimitation: Doesn't understand that directness can hurt others, hard time expressing grace
