The Arno Profile System (APS) assists Christian counselors in identifying a person’s temperament. It reflects God’s imprint on each of us — our unique, inborn “spiritual genetics.” This tool is administered by a trained and certified Christian counselor.

Temperament is the inborn part of a person the determines how he or she reacts to people, places, and things — the environment and world around them. Temperament pinpoints our perception of ourselves and the people who love us. It is also the determining factor in how we handle the stresses and pressures of life.
