Calling all melancholics


My goodness gracious, I cannot believe it has taken me this long to review The Temperament God Gave Your Spouse for The Catholic Company. I finished this book eons ago. It was a quick read and relatively informative. While the first book The Temperament God Gave You isn't required to understand temperaments, I would recommend it. I have not read that book, so I was hoping the Spouse book would give a little more information about the temperaments (it does give overviews). 

I pegged Tug's dominate temperament immediately. I think I would need the other book to figure out his secondary temperament. I also think I would need the other book to pin myself down better. 

Overall I would highly recommend this book, if nothing more than for the laugh of finding out more about who your husband is. There are recommendations within the book of dealing with each temperament which can be helpful. 
I do recommend, however, also reading their first book to get a better understanding of temperaments. 

6 people are laughing with me:

Sounds interesting! Thanks for the review!

Glad you posted this. A friend of mine strongly recommended it and said that they have one about the temperaments of your children. I think it would do me good to read those.

Ever read The 5 Love Languages?

I loved both of these books. I pegged me, my dh, and all my kids pronto. And now we all need therapy. No, kidding. I thought the books were very helpful in understanding why each of us approaches life's challenges in the way we do.

Now I'm trying to figure out what you are, Regina. ;)

This has been on my heart most recently. In fact I was given Spiritual Direction to revisit mine & my husband's God given temperaments. I have not read this specific book but have additional resources. I'll share more soon!

Fascinating stuff. From what you read to me about Tug, it sounds right on. I should look in to it more.
