The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better

by:  Gretchen Rubin

This book was a gift from my kids , Justin & Mindy. Boy do those two know me well. It was a perfect read. As I read it I couldn’t help laughing at my “tendencies” and of other family members. When you read it you’ll be saying to yourself “wow, that makes sense!”

The author realized that by asking the seemingly dry question "How do I respond to expectations?" we gain explosive self-knowledge. She discovered that based on their answer, people fit into Four Tendencies: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels.

I learned that our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior. But it didn’t stop at self-discovery, she gave a framework for making better decisions, meeting deadlines, suffering less stress, and engaging more effectively.  I think you’ll like it.
