Four Tendencies

Post by ONTARIO on Tue Nov 28, 2017 7:49 pm

I like to listen to podcasts in the car. Last night I had one of Robb Wolfe's playing and his Guest was Gretchen Rubin. She is the author of The Four Tendencies. And as she went through them I was laughing because I had to wonder if Paleo/Primal people who frequent (ahem....need) forums all fall into the same category. Our need for information and affirmation that furthers our knowledge seems rampant.

I'm a QUESTIONER. Not surprised. But I wonder if many MDA forum users are, too.

So, go take the quiz.

I appear to be an obliger (which doesn't actually surprise me). I do love research though! Smile

I'm also an obliger who loves to research. I'm not that surprised by the results. I don't really have trouble doing things for myself, but I can't seem to keep commitments to myself very well, especially as they relate to weight/health.

I am an Obliger. I change what I am doing based on other's expectations but manage to do what I want eventually. I have responsibilities for an elderly parent and those expectations are difficult being an only child now.

I like research and read/listen to alternative viewpoints. Pretty solid in my viewpoints though. Smile

Thanks for this site.

Questioner. And I need to know why everyone wouldn't be one.

Obliger. Not happy about that, but it explains a lot :-(
BTW, I love Gretchen Rubin! Her podcast is great!

Even before taking the quiz,  I know I am a Questioner.  In fact, I settled on my handle to reflect that.  Wink

Experiences with Doctors evaluations and prescriptions helped push me there and  cemented that trait pretty solidly.  

I listened to Gretchen Rubin's books on audio Happier at Home and The Happiness Project and I recall she had an uplifting view of life. Probably should listen to it again.

According to your answers, your dominant Tendency is Rebel.

Quelle surprise!
