Banyen's Description: 

In this groundbreaking analysis of personality type, bestselling author of Better Than Before and The Happiness Project Gretchen Rubin reveals the one simple question that will transform what you do at home, at work, and in life.

During her multibook investigation into understand human nature, Gretchen Rubin 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. Our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior, so using this framework allows us to make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress or burnout, and engage more effectively.

Almost a million people have taken her online quiz, and managers, doctors, teachers, spouses, and parents already use the framework to help others make lasting change.

The Four Tendencies holds practical answers if you've ever wondered...

  • People can rely on me, so why can't I rely on myself?
  • How can I help someone to follow good advice?
  • Why do people tell me that I ask too many questions?
  • How do I work with someone who refuses to do what I ask or who keeps telling me what to do? Etc. !

With surprising insights, compelling research, and hilarious examples, The Four Tendencies just might help you get happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative. It's far easier to succeed when you know what works for you.

One of the big daily challenges of life is: “How do I get people—including myself—to do what I want?” The Four Tendencies makes this task much, much easier.

“Gretchen Rubin has discovered a new framework for understanding ourselves and other people. When we know our Tendency, we can manage ourselves more effectively and reach our goals faster—and we can help others to do that, as well. As a researcher who has studied habits, addition, and change for twenty years, I’m excited by the simplicity and power of The Four Tendencies as a tool for anyone seeking to make his or her life better.” —Judson Brewer, author, The Craving Mind
