    Default The Four Tendancies

    I recently came across kind of a cool quiz about habit formation that I wanted to share with you guys.

    What are your results? Were you surprised?

    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!

    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.

    Thought I'd get questioner. I'm hardly a rebel and not at all like this description. Maybe I misunderstood the questions.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    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.

    ------------------------------------------------

    The funny thing is, this is accurate (though sometimes I still won't get things done even with others' expectations), but in terms of actual sense of identity/individuality I'm more rebellious than this suggests. :p

    Rebel

    I thought I'd get obliger because I do feel guilty about letting other people down once I've made a commitment, but then again, I resist making commitments and I hate being told what to do unless I've sought it out first.

    Basically I have no self-control.

    Yeah, I expected this. I disagree with the last line, though. I think the more lasting solution is to develop assertiveness and a better sense of self-worth, leading to a prioritisation of one's own goals and needs.

    I usually stick to my goals if I am externally accountable, but not always.
