    Default The Four Tendencies

    Another test yay!

    http://https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1950137/Four-Tendencies-January-2015

    This one is apparently about how you respond to expectations, yours and those of other people.

    According to your answers, your dominant Tendency is Rebel.

    Rebels resist all expectations, outer and inner alike. They act from a sense of choice, from freedom. Rebels wake up and think, “What do I want to do today?”

    They resist control, even self-control, and enjoy flouting rules and expectations. They sometimes frustrate others—and even themselves—because they resist any expectation, even one that’s self-imposed.

    Rebels resist habits, but they can embrace habit-like behaviors by tying their actions to their choices and their identity.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    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.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    The Obliger: keeps external commitments, but is less apt at motivating oneself. No, not so happy with this result.

    I did not relate to the few Obliger answers that mentioned over-committing oneself for others. I am very selective about what I say yes to because I know I will not go back on a commitment once it is made. So, I have exactly enough time for my own interests. My management of that time is just another story.

    My dominant Tendency is Questioner.

    Not surprising, considering my childhood. My least favorite thing to hear was "Because I said so" or "Because I'm the mother". Even at a young age, I was like, "That's not a reason at all!"

    Wholly expected this. Not surprised, but also not disappointed. Questioner would also do.

    Interesting system. There are two facets, "outer expectations" and "inner expectations," which one holds or not. This binary system leads to four possibilities:

    • Upholder holds all expectations, inner and outer. He's the duty man.
    • Questioner upholds his own inner expectations, but questions outer expectations and tries to determine whether he thinks they make sense before he goes off and upholds them.
    • Obliger sacrifices his own inner expectations for those of others.
    • Rebel doesn't give a flying flip about any expectations at all.


    Looks like there's a chapter on it: Better than Before, chapter "The Four Tendencies."

    Default tendency

    According to your answers, your dominant Tendency is
    Upholder.

    Upholders respond readily to both outer and inner expectations: they meet deadlines and keep New Year’s resolutions without much struggle or supervision.

    Upholders take great satisfaction from moving smoothly through their daily schedule and their to-do lists. They meet others’ expectations—and their expectations for themselves.

    However, Upholders may feel uneasy when expectations aren’t clear, when they’re worried that they’re breaking the rules, or when they feel overwhelmed by expectations they seek to meet.

    They enjoy habits, and form habits fairly easily.

    NOTE: If the Upholder description doesn’t ring quite true to you, you may be an Obliger. Obligers often believe they’re Upholders, because both categories readily meet outer expectations. However, there’s a key difference. Upholders also meet inner expectations, while Obligers struggle to meet them. The key is: how easily do you meet an expectation to yourself? If that’s tough, you’re an Obliger.

    Very, VERY strongly this. I think I picked the answer for this result on almost every question.
