Gretchen Rubin’s Four Tendencies

What Kind of Person Are You? The Four Rubin Tendencies.

New to me, from 2013 — I love Gretchen Rubin’s framework for sorting everyone into categories which describe how people tend to respond to both outer and inner expectations. (I’m an Upholder.)

  1. My sister-in-law introduced me to this framework a while back, and I’ve been puzzling over it ever since! I don’t think I fit neatly into one tendency — I’m somewhere between an Obliger and an Upholder.

  2. I am an Upholder too!

    I read this book in 2015 and two other things I learned from this book are:

    1. Foundation Habits: Food, Sleep, Exercise, Declutter (I agree with first three, but I have a different opinion on fourth. I think Focus is more foundational for me, than Declutter.)
    2. Habit Loopholes. (I learned about habit loopholes from this book and it was helpful to be aware of them.)

    I have a physical copy of the book (Tony of Coach.me sent this to book to me and others as a gift for the reason I forgot now) which I will read again at some point.
