Lesson  Nine
What Personality and God
Given Talents do I Have
?

Which one describes you best?  First decide, are you a people
person or more of a behind the scenes person? Extroverts are
people persons; introverts are behind the scenes non-people
persons. That will help you.   Then look over the strengths and
weakness.  You may find that you might be a combo as well.  After you
know how God has created you and placed His gifting inside you.  
You can say this is me!  Then you can be the authentic you without
feeling bad about yourself anymore.  If God created me like this, I
guess He likes me just the way I am. Keep in mind that one’s passion
God gives you can override the personality test. God has ways to
stretch us and equips us to do far more than we can think or imagine.
The animals that are beside each personality will help you
understand how they function in the animal world.  Of course the
Lion roars and is the  take charge type, while  the otter is playful and
fun, when the beaver is detailed and continually  busy building his
projects; the golden retriever is a loyal companion and very laid back
and relaxed.    

After you figure out what personality you have, go to the next section
and find out what gifting's God has placed in you: you may have more
than one of these.  Find the  two or three that describe you and email
me your results.  I can tell you more about yourself once you decide.
As you see, you have many giftings and callings in your life; your
personality  is how God has wired you to be, so relax you are who you
are supposed to be.
