How do you feel right now?
Have you ever noticed that you are at times impulsive or are you aware that sometimes you are “unpredictable”?
Well if not, and if you really don’t mind about it, let me tell you now that it’s not something you just have to shrug your shoulders about!
Ancient Greek medicine believed that the above-mentioned “inclinations” could be considered as possible “illness” due to an imbalance in the four types of body fluids: blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm.
It should be A CHALLENGE FOR US to SELF-REGULATE those body fluids and find the “right blending”.
A person’s PERSONALITY can be characterized by ONE HUMOR – thus the so called TEMPERAMENT which is medically defined as our HABITUAL INCLINATIONS or our mode of EMOTIONAL RESPONSES.
We didn’t understand this when we were still young – that’s why, many of us are not aware that OUR FAILURE OR WEAKNESS TO MODIFY our TEMPERAMENTS are actually the RISKS that we are continually creating to hinder building HARMONIOUS RELATIONSHIPS. – why? – because “that very moment when we THROW an IMPULSE, could cause A DOMINO EFFECT”!
“That SHOUTING that you did to a CHILD could create an IMPACT which could be a dangerous part that would make up her Personality!” — at least one of the COMMON DANGERS which we are not so aware of.
http://centerforparentingeducation.org/ states: “Temperament is the part of the Unique Child that refers to the fact that all children are born into this world with their own individualized blueprints for reacting to the world around them. Based on a thirty-year study begun in 1956, temperament explains why some children are very easy-going while others tend to be more challenging for parents. Sometimes you hear these challenging children being called “difficult” or spirited; this is often because they have temperamental traits that make them more demanding to parent.
We may be that one “demanding child” back then or maybe until now; BUT HEY, we are no longer kids at this point!
PONDER on the “triggering concepts” in the following slides and BEGIN MAKING THE DIFFERENCE!
Note to my “bright & gorgeous students”: you may just choose a minimum of three  questions/concepts to PONDER-ON — those which you can relate the most 🙂
