    Questioner.

    I see myself as needing external motivation to form new habits, but maybe that's only if I've already accepted it as reasonable. Obliger seems to be my opposite, so I guess I couldn't be a blend. I do tend to ignore pressure to do stuff I haven't determined is reasonable or right for me.

    According to your answers, your dominant Tendency is Obliger.


    Obligers respond readily to outer expectations, but struggle to meet inner expectations. In other words, they work hard not to let other people down, but they often let themselves down.

    Obligers may find it difficult to form a habit, because often we undertake habits for our own benefit, and Obligers do things more easily for others than for themselves.

    For Obligers, the key to forming habits is to create external accountability.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    According to your answers, your dominant Tendency is Upholder.

    Though I see myself as a hybrid between Upholder and Obliger, partially because the second someone else depends on me, I become WAY more anal about making it to the end.

    How can any of those be considered arguments is beyond me. You hear something like that and that's the moment you switch from questioner to rebel tendency.

    [*]Rebel doesn't give a flying flip about any expectations at all.

    Rebel.

    I thought I would get Obliger. I guess the reason is because I generally don't feel inconvenienced enough by expectations to challenge them, but if I really didn't feel like doing something and I thought it was unnecessary or petty, I agree that I would probably make a bit of a fuss, but I've learned to suck it up if it would make my life easier. However, if I felt indebted to the person or held him/her in high regard, then I'd follow through willingly. This assumes I am not being taken advantage of and that there is no additional incentive for me. If I am personally entrusted by someone for my capabilities rather than my availability, I feel more motivated to oblige.

    According to your answers, your dominant Tendency is Questioner.

    Questioners question all expectations, and will meet an expectation only if they believe it’s justified, so in effect, they meet only inner expectations.

    Once Questioners believe that a particular habit is worthwhile, they’ll stick to it—but only if they’re satisfied about the habit’s soundness and usefulness. They resist anything arbitrary or ineffective; they accept direction only from people they respect.

    Questioners may exhaust themselves (and other people) with their relentless questioning, and they sometimes find it hard to act without perfect information.

    If you’re thinking, “Well, right now I question the validity of the Four Tendencies framework,” yep, you’re probably a Questioner!

    - Touche, I was doing just that.
