Temperament Separate to Type:
An Additional Tool for Enhancing Type Applications

8:30am • Check-in & refreshments
9:00am until 12:00 noon • Formal presentation
Current SANDAPT members free • Non-members $30 • Students with ID $20

Temperament is a complementary theory to Psychological type which can supplement the insights provided by the MBTI® assessment. Temperament is defined as a pattern of needs, values, talents and behaviors that underlies your way of acting and being in the world. Originally integrated with psychological type by David Keirsey, and brought into the 21st century by Linda Berens, Temperament provides additional understanding of core drivers and innate stress responses.

This has many applications including:

  • Providing additional resources to those who say, "I have done type!"
  • An alternative for those situations when minimum time is allowed for exploring type differences.
  • Supplying an additional "lens" to help triangulate information in order to gain a more accurate perspective on best-fit type pattern.

In this interactive, hands-on session, you will:

  • Identify how to differentiate between Temperament and Psychological Type
  • Learn about the four Temperaments and clues for different Temperaments.
  • Experience how to introduce Temperament as part of a self-assessment process.

This workshop has been approved for 3 MBTI® Master Practitioner CE hours.

WORKSHOP #2 (Optional)

Applying Temperament in the "Real World"

1:15pm until 3:15pm • Formal presentation; no refreshments
Current SANDAPT members $15 • Non-members $20 • Students with ID $10

One of the many advantages of using Temperament theory is that this framework tends to be easier to recognize and quicker to apply using a range of activities geared to different learning objectives.

This has many applications including:

  • Broader self-understanding - we call this Self-Leadership from the Inside Out
  • Enhanced interaction effectiveness
  • Long-term performance coaching
  • Raised resilience by catering to core needs and building Spiritual Energy

 In this interactive, hands-on session, you will:

  • Experience a range of activities that can be used in delivering Temperament workshops.
  • Explore how each activity can be customized to differing applications.
  • Walk away with new ideas for "bringing to life" Type and Temperament to make learning more relevant and immediate.
