A few years ago I read Gretchen Rubin’s book The Happiness Project.
I enjoyed it immensely and still go back and re-read sections when I need a reminder on how to handle certain situations in life. It is truly the only “self help” book I have ever finished.
Today I found myself back on her web page and taking her quiz to determine what type of person I am when it comes to handling inner and external expectations. Things like work deadlines, New Years resolutions, life altering decisions.
The four categories, or types, are Upholder, Questioner, Rebel and Obliger. She has developed a quick quiz to help you determine which category you fall into. It was quite interesting. The questions seemed a bit random but the results were bang on for me.
I am a questioner. I have a tendency to question everything before I will move ahead with a project or decision.
The fact that I even took the quiz proves that I needed to know what type I was before I could move on with my day.
