She discovered that based on their answer, people fit into Four Tendencies: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels. Our Tendency shapes every aspect of our behavior, so using this framework allows us to make better decisions, meet deadlines, suffer less stress, and engage more effectively.

A helpful book in not only showing you the strengths and weaknesses of your own tendency, but, even better, helping you to see how to relate to people who have different tendencies. I came away with useful information on understanding and getting along with friends and family and coworkers who are wired differently.

Oh. My. Gosh. I was reading this book and I saw myself and then my children. The absolute best part about this book is it suggests small ways to adjust your interactions with others (if you know their tendency) to help life and/or work flow more smoothly. And the neat thing is that all the suggestions you can also apply to yourself as well. Highly recommended!
