Questioners Question All Expectations

Questioners Question All Expectations

At work, at home, and in life, we all confront both outer and inner expectations. Understanding how you respond to expectations is the foundation of my Four Tendencies framework. (Take the quiz here to find out if you're an Upholder, Obliger, Questioner, or a Rebel.)

Questioners question all expectations. They meet only inner expectations -- and that includes outer expectations that they've turned into inner expectations.

If you’re intrigued by the Four Tendencies, and want to join the lively discussion on the Better app, sign up! It’s free. You can start or join an accountability group (Obligers, I know many of you want to do that), ask questions, have discussions about your own Tendency or dealing with someone else’s Tendency.

If you're a questioner, have you been called stubborn, obstructionist, or "not a team player"?
