The Four Tendencies


Hi there. I was curious to know if you have an opinion about Gretchen Ruben’s work around the Four Tendencies. In her work she talks about four types of people in respect to how we show up for expectations. Upholders want to know what should be done. Questioners want justifications. Obligers need accountability. Rebels want freedom to do something their own way. In her work she talks about knowing which one you are so that you can create success for yourself… kind of like making decisions in advance. An obliger might need a gym buddy to keep her accountable for example. Do you believe in this work or do you think that we can decide to be which ever way we want and we are not necessarily hard wired a particular way?
