My sister and I are having a great time doing our podcast, Happier with Gretchen Rubin.
With the Four Tendencies, I divide all of humanity into four categories: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels.
For four weeks on the podcast, we're going to focus on the Tendencies. Strengths, weakness, striking patterns...and you'll get to hear me talk about being an Upholder and Elizabeth talk about being an Obliger. And you'll get to hear me talk about Elizabeth's Obligerness and hear her talking about my Upholderness!
Plus we'll have guests to speak for Questioner and Rebel.
Send us your insights and questions
For those episodes, we'd love to hear from you. Questions, comments, insights. How do you manage yourself, given your Tendency? How do you deal with a spouse, child, co-worker, boss, patient? How do you hire and construct teams thinking about the Four Tendencies? How do you shape your habits -- or help other people to shape their habits -- using the Four Tendencies?
We asked for comments in our last episode, and we've already received many thought-provoking responses. Keep them coming.
There’s lots of ways to share your responses or questions:
- Call: 774-277-9336 (77 HAPPY 336)
- Comment below
- Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Connect on Twitter: @gretchenrubin and @elizabethcraft
- Comment on my Facebook Page
All things being equal, it's great to hear your voice, so if possible, leave us a voice message. But I know that I resist making calls whenever possible, so would always choose to write a response instead of using the phone. That's great too!
We're really looking forward to this mini-series on the Four Tendencies. What are you comments and questions? Send them in.
(For the record, if you're thinking, "I question the validity of a framework that divides everyone into four categories," you're probably a Questioner.)

The Four Tendencies explain why we act and why we don’t act. Our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior, so understanding your Tendency lets us make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress and burnout, and engage more effectively.
