How can it impact your life?

You will find that at the end of the quiz, you will know whether you are an upholder, a questioner, an obliger or a rebel. For upholders, the result means that these people struggle when they don’t have clear expectations. They like to have a good idea of what is expected of them. Knowing this information can help you in life as you should try to set clear goals which you can follow to keep your habits. As for people with a questioner result, this means they like to find out why something has occurred. They are problem solvers and are inquisitive in their daily life. Having this knowledge can help you with your habits as you might struggle to make decisions. As for obligers, they tend to follow instructions well but struggle when it comes to their own personal goals. Working with someone else can help when it comes to obligers. As for rebels, as the name suggests, they don’t tend to work well with expectations. They have their own way of thinking and struggle to stick to rules. Therefore, you have to work harder when it comes to habits.

With this new knowledge, Gretchen believes we can complete daily tasks a lot more efficiently and keep those important deadlines in future so we can do more. If you fancy giving the test a go to see what you are, here is the link. Let us know what result you get (I’m an obliger apparently).
