 Personality Characteristics 

The following are the unique personality characteristics identified in the Discipleship Inventory Personality Profile.  There are approximately 6,227,020,800 different ways of arranging or combining the twelve disciple character types along with the mood identifier.  In other words, since that is about how many people are living at this time on the earth you would find it difficult to find someone else exactly like you.  However, for purposes of simplification and explanation we find it helpful to focus on the top three character types in an individual's profile. Each personaility trait, labeled as A - M, can be characterized in the follow way:
