Becky and Diana discuss Gretchen Rubin’s 4 Tendencies and how understanding them helps you develop successful habits.

A habit is something you do without thinking about it.

  • Most systems for developing habits tell you to employ either an “all or nothing” or “moderation” mindset.
  • When working with others it is helpful to respect their tendencies.
  • The 4 Tendencies focus on how you meet inner and outer expectations.

The 4 Tendencies:

  • Upholder - Meets both inner and outer expectations. Motto: “Discipline is my freedom.”
  • Questioner - Questions both inner and outer expectations, but makes decisions based on their inner expectations. Motto: “Convince me why, and I’ll comply.”
  • Obligers - Meets outer expectations and resists inner ones. Motto: “You can count on me and I am counting on you to count on me.”
  • Rebel - Resists both inner and outer expectations.  Motto: “You can’t make me and neither can I.”
