(Arno Profile System / Temperament Analysis Profile)
The A. P. S. (Temperament Analysis
Profile) is a computerized report created by Drs. Richard
and Phyllis Arno of the Sarasota Academy of Christian
Counseling in Sarasota, Florida and is provided for
Professional Christian Counselors.
The A. P. S. deals with the inner person rather than outer
manifestations or problems. In 1983 Drs. Arno began research
and developing a scriptural based therapeutic procedure that
would produce effective, positive and more immediate results
with those needing guidance / counsel.
A Temperament Analysis Profile is similar to personality
testing, but actually is not. Personality is the mask we
wear and is formed as a result of how we were parented, the
environment in which we grew up and circumstances that have
occurred throughout our lives. Our temperament is who we
really are underneath. Who we are determines the choices we
make in life (friends, spouse, career) and how we interact
with our significant others.
The Arno Profile System does not measure a person’s
behavior; it identifies a person’s in-born God-given
temperament. Who God created us to be (temperament) and who
we have become (through learned behavior) can be entirely
different. We need to find out who we really are and find
ways to become the person God wants us to be (the true self)
instead of the person we have learned to be (the masked
By filling out an A. P. S. Response form which is a 10
minute questionnaire containing 54 questions you will learn
your unique temperament in 3 areas: Inclusion (Mind),
Control (Will), and Affection (Emotions) and will stop
asking, “Why am I the way I am?” or “Why do I keep making
the same mistakes?” and you will start asking, “How can I
use, my temperament for the glory of God and the advancement
of His kingdom?” The A. P. S. report details your unique
strengths and weaknesses and gives suggestions for how to
get your basic needs met and find balance in your life.
Presently over 3,000 Christian leaders and professional
Christian counselors rely on the Arno Profile System to aid
them in their counseling efforts. These Christians report an
accuracy rate of over 90%.
