I personally am a huge personality/inter-person workings buff (INFJ here!) so this book was right up my ally. I love Gretchen Rubins take on expectation management. The Four Tendencies gives the introduction, break down and management of all 4 tendencies and variations of them. It is an eye opening read into why people do what they do, or don’t. Like many people I have often wondered by can’t I form this habit?! But this book really has given me some tools to combat my non personal habit forming self.
She starts the book off with how she discovered the tendencies, I love this inside look at her back story because I often wonder how people come up with these ideas. Then she walks you through her quiz, which you can take here.
After you discover which tendency you fall into it’s hard not to flip to the right chapters to learn all about yourself! (Unless your an Upholder, then you’ll have no problem reading from cover to cover like books are meant to be read :P) But she does a wonderfully thorough job of breaking down each tendency with real life stories and experiences.
I would recommend this book to anyone that is having trouble motivating themselves to accomplish expecations, internal or external and people that just wonder why they are so weird. You’re not weird I promise, you just need to discover more about yourself.
After reading this book, I feel less frustrated with the rebel in my life. I also have a few tricks up my sleeve to get some work out of him! *Kidding, maybe.
I would love to know your Tendency if you chose to take this quiz, and how you feel it fits your life in the comments below!
I received a free copy of this novel, from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
