Gretchen Rubin's Quiz: The Four Tendencies - Updated Feb 7, 2018 - copy

Start Here!

From Gretchen Rubin:

Hello! I’ve identified a personality framework that divides all of humanity into four types—really.  
If you’d like to find out if you’re an Upholder, a Questioner, an Obliger, or a Rebel, take this quiz.

The Quiz poses questions meant to identify your Tendency and to cover some standard demographic information; it takes about ten minutes to complete. Answers are confidential and coordinated by a third-party research firm. To learn more about the Four Tendencies, check out my book.


Consider the following scenarios. Obviously, you might not find yourself in these situations, and you might not react exactly as suggested; choose the answer that sounds like the kind of thing you'd most likely say, do, or think. Choose the answer that seems most generally true for you; try not to search for exceptions to the rule or focus on one specific area of your life.

1. Have you kept a New Year’s resolution where you weren’t accountable to anyone—a resolution like drinking more water or keeping a journal?
