In many cases, the breeder will select the best fit for you based on your wants and needs, and the pup's personality/temperament. The breeder has spent 8 weeks watching the pups interact with each other and a variety of humans and, if experienced enough, can make a good assessment of what type of adult temperament a pup will have.
Some breeders will also have an outside person conduct a temperament test with the pups to get a better idea of where they will fit best. Still, even with that test is just a snapshot of the pup and should be used in conjunction with the breeder's observations.
My advice is to tell the breeder what type of dog you want (agility prospect, calm companion, obedience competitor, etc) and allow him/her to select the best fit.
