What's Your Tendency?

Recommended Posts

For this month's issue of SerpenTimes, I wrote about The Four Tendencies (Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, Rebel). Which one are you? 

I'll admit that I have taken the quiz multiple times. I've gotten everything except Obliger, but my main Tendency is definitely Questioner. Obviously logic is important to me and I like it when things make sense to me.

I really enjoyed your article, so I took the quiz almost immediately after I finished it. I was thinking I'd probably get Questioner, but I actually got Obliger which I thought was interesting, and of course later decided did make sense.

I got Questioner the first time,which surprised me but then, after a moment, I wasn't all that surprised. It works for me.  I've been called a curious Mongoose before ...

EDIT: Well, I played it again to see if I got Questioner and didn't. Odly, got Rebel. So I tried again .. and got Rebel.  Again ... Rebel.    Fred and George forever! \o/

To the surprise of no one, I am a Rebel.

While doing research for her article, Scarlet read some excerpts about Rebels from Better Than Before. Just having that part of me understood, after being called "lazy," "apathetic," "troublemaker," my entire life by people who didn't know how to motivate me, brought me to tears.

EDIT: Every so often, when Scarlet tells me to do something I don't want to do, I get to play the Rebel card. So I got that going for me, which is nice. :lol:

I got Questioner based on that quiz... which kind of makes sense based on that description (though, of course, I wonder if these types of boxes make sense!)

This was very interesting. I took the quiz and got obliger, and I think this is very accurate for me. I've always been fine when it comes to doing things for other people, but it's hard for me to ever do anything for myself. I think a lot of that has to do with thinking that I myself am not worthy of doing anything for, but I want the world to be happy, so I'll do whatever I can for everyone else. My experiences that I've gone through the past 2-3 years are a perfect example of this as this time was a time that I was forced to do something for myself. It took so long because it was for myself, and I couldn't keep to it. However, I noticed when I did have that external accountability, things were much easier because I didn't want to let that person down by screwing up.

Thank you for writing about this! This is something I can definitely take with me for further discussion.

Of course even before I did the test I knew what I was. I'm a rebel. In fact, when I was younger I had a saying. 

Person 1: What you rebelling against?

Me: What you got?

 

Test said: I'm a obilger.

I'm an obliger too. Wasn't all together shocked by this as taking on tasks for other people without any regard for how much I already have to do seems to run in my family but I always thought I was more selfish than the quiz might indicate.

So I just took the quiz and I got obliger.  I am not really surprised by the results because my mother always put everyone else and their needs above her own.  Having lived my whole life learning and following in her footsteps, I am happy to say that is one of the things that I am proud of.  I love being able to help others because it makes me happy.

Thanks for the interesting article; really informative and a most enjoyable read.  I got questioner, which was a little  bit surprising for me (honestly I was expecting rebel). But after reading more about the questioner, it made more sense.  So I guess that makes me a rebel who questions everything?!

I love personality quizzes!

I got questioner, which fits me really well. I love to analyze everything. I try to make decisions based on my own internal guide, and not so much my expectations or that of others.  I'm fine following leaders, and setting goals for myself, but I will walk away if my internal values are violated (after I've asked questions and made my concerns clear, and listened to the responses.)

@Magnus Ward you are my only Tendency buddy here. :)

 

I am an Upholder. Doing what others expect you to do in a smart way can make you get what you want or manipulate situation to your advantage. I guess I could say that my statement has a "dash of Rebel" in it.

I got Questioner, which I think makes a lot of sense. I honestly can't relate to people who say that they need to work on not being a people pleaser. I have to actively work on being generous to others, especially when it goes against something I normally do. I remember my mom was able to circumvent a ton of arguments by just explaining why I had to do something.
