The Mary Marantz Show

May 4, 2021

Have you ever felt stuck in your relationships, career, or self-confidence? Perhaps you’ve wondered why you feel and act the way that you do when others around you, may feel and act differently.

If you can relate, then this episode is for you!

Today, Mary is joined by best-selling author, fellow Yale Law alum, and of one of today’s most influential and thought-provoking observers of happiness and human nature- Gretchen Rubin.

Known for her ability to distill and convey complex ideas with humor and clarity, in a way that’s accessible to a wide audience, Gretchen does not disappoint in her conversation with Mary today about her book, “The Four Tendencies: Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better (and Other People's Lives Better Too).”

On today’s episode, Mary and Gretchen

  • Dive into Gretchen’s explosive, yet simple, question “How do I respond to expectations?”;
  • Discuss Gretchen’s Four Tendency Framework and the accompanying categories that people fit into- upholders, questioners, obligers, and rebels;
  • Talk about how and why our tendencies shape every aspect of our behaviors; and,
  • Dig into how these personality profiles can enhance our lives and the lives of those around us!


After listening,

  • You'll know how to make better decisions based on what works best for your specific personality profile—not what anyone else expects or demands;
  • Understand how we can all have more constructive relationships with the people in our lives; and,
  • Be equipped with the powerful tool to help us better recognize our own nature, while harnessing its strengths and counteracting its weaknesses.

If you are ready to overcome the biggest impediments to your happiness and success, then you will not want to miss today’s practical and powerful episode!
