About The Book
A note to the reader
To clarify the differences between each personality, God made man balanced in spirit, soul, and body, then imbued mankind with supernatural abilities to carry out His dominion on Earth (Genesis 1:26–27).
My hope and prayer for this book is to reinforce the restoration process of man through Christ and to facilitate the revelation of God in bringing mankind back to his original purpose. It will take a strong combination of both leader and follower personalities to bring mankind to the place of total authority and deliverance to emerge as the ideal human.
From the kingdom perspective, social scientists and the evolutionists, all will find the various concepts in this book vital for judging how best to determine the growth of learning. In addition,
the strategies conveyed in this book, will further encourage the applicability to the improvement of structural learning at levels in different disciplines across societies at large. The scriptures paint the original picture, illustrating these unique personalities in clear terms.
In secular study structures, people are directed to see themselves as possessing just one of these personalities, whereas from the kingdom standpoint, everyone possesses all these personalities. The process of restoration, however, will reveal to the individual which personality is primary, and the ones which are secondary, thus bringing balance to the person’s heart.
On a massive scale, when a society is armed with such understanding, they can readily accept and make provisions to mine the vast wealth of gifts and talent buried within the general population.
Diversity in the larger communities is a treasure to any society. If that strength can be harnessed through strategic planning, teaching, and the creation of opportunities in the education system, students grow to know their personality and the importance of exploring and using their “power,” as it were. This structure will provide a platform formidable enough to facilitate the discovery and introduction of new, meaningful, and impactful transformational leadership.
As you read further, you will discover the rich reserve that God has placed in you and how you can tap into it. My hope is that you will appreciate yourself, your peers, and possibly find your
calling and assignment in God. After your discovery, you will also be able to weaponize these discoveries to create positive impact among your families, your communities, and your nation.
What I hope and pray is that this book will fulfill its purpose, which is to bring you to a true place of healing and empowerment through self-discovery, gift-recovery, and God-discovery. A place where we realize that all these qualities are buried deep inside us by God as potential to be explored, recovered, and enjoyed (Psalm 23:3).

Overview of How to Restore Personality
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” (Psalm 139:14). This verse firmly speaks about the mystery of God’s wisdom, as to the marvellous combination of such powerful personalities to create one integral being called mankind. Intricately interwoven, these personality types are a worthy study.
In retrospect, we must develop a great working relationship with God and ourselves before any other relationships such as people, money, career, and even having children, so as not to become so engrossed in others that we neglect the riches and the glory of God.

What others say
The model of discipleship in the 21st Century church is receiving an upgrade from some of the religious patterns of the past. Several years ago at a state prophetic summit, I prophesied that the Lord was going to shift the discipleship model of the church from a shepherd sheep to the embracing of the fourfaced feature that we find in Ezekiel. As I read Ps Alexander Emoghenes book draft I felt like I was reading the operation manual for how this discipleship is to be outworked. I highly endorse not only the apostolic revelation write in this book to you but also the minister who has written it. Ps Alexander is a dynamic minister in the body of Christ and a great equipped of the saints. I encourage you to work through the chapters slowly and prayerfully asking the Holy Spirit to transform your thinking and perceptions about who you are and what you are capable of.

“Know Yourself” is a prerequisite for maximizing your Godgiven potential and minimizing liabilities in one’s life. Selfdiscovering is an art and a skill to be developed at all costs if destiny must be fulfilled. In his newest book, “Know Yourself” Pastor Alexander has captured the essence and importance of knowing oneself as it plays a pivotal role in man’s ultimate fulfillment of his God-ordained destiny. The book “Know Yourself” is a compendium of time-tested concepts, a concise book that illuminates and helps us to understand, clarifying the differences of mankind’s personalities. In the end, that man will discover, develop and deploy their innate capacities as they seek to fulfill their God-ordained destinies on the earth. In straightforward terms, Pastor Emoghene catalogs the benefits and critical factors that must be engaged in knowing yourself that engenders the corporate man to live out his/her full potential. We have seen destinies truncated and destroyed whether in families, ministries, or any enterprise because of the ignorance of self. Consequently, man is unfulfilled in life and frustrated at unprecedented levels with the dream of living a fulfilled life a figment of their imagination. The book “Know Yourself” surfaced for such a time as this and to help empower the Church and re-establish God’s principles on a self-discovering as articulated in His Word. In this book, Pastor Alexander Emoghene is used by God as a prophetic voice and a catalyst to give the Church a mentality makeover and enable the average believer to understand what I xv call human authenticity thus adequately maximizing potential to becoming all that God has ordained. I prayerfully recommend this book to you, your family, and your ministries. It will enhance your understanding of and confidence in knowing who you are.

“Know Yourself” has awakened in me a new form of curiosity; I was not aware of the 4 personalities we have as human beings. To me this book is a guide to the exploration of my true self and the 4 personalities in me. Besides that, it’s a very enjoyable read. Alexander has written this book in a way that creates interest and builds up one’s curiosity such that you would want to read it in one go; continuously wanting to know what is coming next, what will I be learning next? This book should be considered a textbook for Christians. like Jews have the Talmud, we should have more teachings like this to dig into the infinite wisdom of the Holy Bible, and to acquire more wisdom and understanding. This is a must read for every Christian in search of his of her purpose in life. This book will help you in your expedition to knowing your true self.

Knowing yourself is, like the author himself - an honest book! It has a logical build up from a biblical foundation, personal reflections and practical implications. The core message of the book (in my words) is: ‘It’s there already, God planted it inside you’. It’s about being who you are through awareness and choosing to develop yourself by cultivating what is already in you. . If anything, in this time we realise that we cannot design the world as we want it. We can however, in this brokenness come to our potency and ‘give space’ to who we are deep down, according to Gods purpose with mankind. I recommend this book for anybody who needs reconfirmation about his or her being based on how God meant us to be; balanced in spirit, soul and body. In a unique fashion, this book reflects the author’s desire to encourage people to be purpose driven. In the same way he is committed in his role as a board member of SKIN-Rotterdam where he strives to build bridges between churches, government and society, promoting communities to live in unity in diversity of John 17, as well as encouraging international churches to become a powerful voice in society.
