It’s easy to reduce personality types to tropes: extroverts are always ready to entertain and introverts hate socializing, for example. But the truth of personalities, and how they reveal themselves in each individual, is much more textured than that.
On this episode of the Art of Pastoring, Ronnie Martin and Jared Wilson share how their personalities shape their pastoring. As one introvert and one extrovert, Jared and Ronnie discuss what energizes them, what drains them, and what may surprise you about their differences. While they talk about arranging their schedules in ways that consider their preferences and personality types, they speak to the importance of understanding ourselves and each other as unique individuals created by God.
