Examining myself with the Four Tendencies has made such a difference in how I view myself as well as how others might see me. I am a Questioner/ Upholder. Putting that knowledge about me to work in situations with people makes me stop and think that most people do not see things the exact same way I do and I need to be considerate of them. Your show also makes so many helpful points about every day situations and concerns. But most of all you, Gretchen and Elizabeth, make me smile with your kind and loving conversation about your foibles. You are so normal (really, this is a very sincere compliment!). Onward and upward!

Keep up the good work

I implement ideas from this podcast most every day... I’ve crossed off the bulk of my 18 goals for 2018, and I’m happier for it. I have “practice” birthday cupcakes with my multiples, easing the stress around their big day. Seasonally themed photo groupings make my heart sing. Abstainer vs. moderator distinctions have helped me shed those pesky five pounds. Gretchen’s strategies for handling rebel types with appeals to their identity are most effective and have helped me in my marriage. I disagree on one point: Whether or not the kids make the bed does indeed matter because the homemaker can move along more quickly to address other things when this is done. It’s important that the entire family work to keep the household going, and the kids are a part of the household and have to help as they are able. The podcasters only have one or two kids each and lack large family management skills, which perhaps goes hand in hand with their lack of confidence in the kitchen/entertaining realm.
