I came across this quiz from Gretchen Rubin and thought it was an interesting way of thinking about personality types.
Although she mentions that most people can connect to aspects of each type, I knew immediately that I am a Questioner. None of the others even came close (although I do like checking things off a to-do list). I am self-motivated (though I crave positive reinforcement) and I like to gather a lot of information before I make a decision (sometimes too much). Perhaps the most illustrative: "It really bothers me when things are unfair or arbitrary."
YES. NOW YOU CAN SEE WHY LIFE IS HARD FOR ME.
I haven't asked David to take this quiz, because I don't need to. I can tell you with great confidence that he is an Upholder. Such a rule-follower, that one. I can pretty easily put most of my friends in one category or another, too... (Jamie is an Upholder, Beth is an Obliger, Monica is an Obliger. I think my brother is probably a Questioner also, maybe even a Rebel...)
Where do you fall in these categories? And is your life partner the same as you?
