In yesterday Taiwan TV talk show, one of the them talk of personality as divided into four Seeker types
- Political - Power
- Business - Money
- Philosophy - Truth, Justice, Fairness ..
- Pleasure - Fun, Enjoyment
In the Christian circle, we speak about the temptations of 3G - Glory, Gold, Girls/Guys that caused the downfall of many famous preachers. To the list of 4 above, I wish add another, Relationship - family or friendship.
We can use TEMPR to help in memorizing them:
T: Truth, E: Enjoyment M:Money P:Power, R:Relationship
Except for Truth, everything is else Temporary - TEMPR
I wish also to suggest that like the Truth - Jesus be the anchor point of balancing and deciding what you need of the others. This is shown as the picture below:If we really want to rank them, my preference would be TREPM. Truth enables Relationship that provides Joy supported by Power (ability to influence) and then Money. You may other preference.
