The ultimate self-help book to kick off 2020! Gretchen Rubin happens to be one of my favorite authors & podcast hostesses, but you might also be familiar with her works, the Happiness Project & Better than Before.
This new book, the Four Tendencies, will work most effectively for you as you identify which personality type or mesh of personalities you identify with best.
The question you need to ask yourself while you’re reading is: how I respond to expectations? Both self-imposed (inner expectations) & expectations put in place by others (outer expectations.)
Listed below for your convenience; happy reading!!!
Also, I would highly recommend taking the 4 Tendencies quiz so you know what you are. ;) This wasn't a huge eye-opener for me personally, since I know I'm an obliging person in general, (an Obliger) but when I discovered that my husband fits the mold of Questioner more than Upholder, I was a little surprised. However, reading about being married to a Questioner & how to respond to them has actually been quite insightful; I am hopeful that I can make him feel valued & not belittled by senseless questions while we are communicating in the future.
Rubin's descriptions of each personality type are spot-on AND she gives practical advice with how to deal with people of that tendency or how to handle ourselves differently.
