#353 The Four Tendencies with Gretchen Rubin

Another week of Jill on Money means another week of great listener questions in hour one. 

First up was Dustin from Minneapolis who needed me to be the judge regarding a financial dilemma he's having with his wife.  Next up was a fascinating health and money related question from Mike in Tennessee.  The final call of the hour was from Kevin in Maryland who is preparing to start medical school and has some financial loose ends he wants to address before hitting the books.

We all fall into at least one of four personality categories: We’re either Upholders, Questioners, Obligers or Rebels, according to our guest Gretchen Rubin. Her latest book, The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better, is already a bestseller.

Rubin says that understanding which category defines you, can transform what you do at home, at work, and in life by helping you make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress, and engage more effectively. [FYI, I’m an Upholder, as is Mark, which may explain why we work so well together!]

The Four Tendencies hold practical answers if you’ve ever thought…

  • People can rely on me, but I can’t rely on myself?
  • How can I help someone to follow good advice?
  • People say I ask too many questions.
  • How do I work with someone who refuses to do what I ask—or who keeps telling me what to do?

Knowing who you are may be able to make you happier, healthier, more productive and even more creative. After all, it’s far easier to succeed, when you know what works for you and those who surround you.
