From there is this diagram.
In the meantime, take the Quiz! I’d love to hear what you think.
If you need a quick overview of the Four Tendencies:
In a nutshell, it distinguishes how people tend to respond to expectations: outer expectations (a deadline, a “request” from a sweetheart) and inner expectations (write a novel in your free time, keep a New Year’s resolution).
Your response to expectations may sound slightly obscure, but it turns out to be very, very important.
- Upholders respond readily to outer and inner expectations
- Questioners question all expectations; they’ll meet an expectation if they think it makes sense–essentially, they make all expectations into inner expectations(I’m a Questioner)
- Because Questioners want to make well-considered decisions and come to their own conclusions, they’re veryintellectually engaged, and they’re often willing to do exhaustive research.
- Obligers meet outer expectations, but struggle to meet expectations they impose on themselves
- Rebels resist all expectations, outer and inner alike
Your doctor and psychologist should know all this to get you motivated to meet your 100% recovery goal. Since you are going to have to do all the recovery yourself with no help from your doctor.
