The Type of Person You Are Indicates How You Should Try To Change Your Habits

Author Gretchen Rubin has written a book that speak about the different ways we interact in the world will dictate different methods we should use to change habits.   Want to develop better habits? Figure out your habit tendency, she says. 
  • Are you an “Upholder,” who can meet internal and external expectations? 
  • Or are you a  “Questioner,” like Jane Eyre, who’ll only do something if they think it’s justified? 
  • An “Obliger,” like Andre Agassi, who is motivated to meet the expectations of others? 
  • Or a “Rebel,” who resists both internal and external expectations? 
Different tendencies require different strategies for change. Obligers respond well to accountability partners. Rebels don’t.
