Is Your Baby or Toddler Easy-Going, Spunky, or Spirited? What about you?

Baby Temperament Quiz

When it comes to your baby’s personality, there are 9 temperament traits that are factors. The 9 temperament traits are: Intensity, Persistence, Sensitivity, Perceptiveness, Adaptability, Regularity, Energy, First Reaction, and Mood. These aren’t the only things that affect personality nor is your personality set in stone and it doesn’t mean that you can’t give your baby or toddler direction to accentuate the positive and minimize the negative. There are good and bad things about all temperament traits, so while some things are challenging, it helps both you and your baby to find the positive in the things they do.

Explore all the traits by reading the Baby Temperament & Sleep Series and by taking the quiz below to find out if your baby or toddler is easy-going, spunky or spirited. Take the quiz again from your perspective to find out if you and your child are more similar or more different for an added insight into how you might interact with your baby or toddler. Most of all, have fun!
