So at work the other day I was sharing with another nurse how I literally grew a fever blister overnight just from one stressful shift. Her response was, “Oh that’s your type A, to which I said, “I’m not type A!!! Leading me on a furious internet search of quizzes to take and definitions to read confirming my personality/temperament type!!!
In the temperment world I am an extroverted, feeling driven, fly by the seat of my pants, sensory loving fool! But I do admit my type A tendencies arise at work, Im always rushing, and can never relax! But please don’t misread I have nothing against type A’s, in fact, Im pretty sure the world is driven by them, it’s just I want to be more type B!!
Here’s the definitions according to wikipedia:
Type A:Type A individuals can be described as impatient, time-conscious, controlling, concerned about their status, highly competitive, ambitious, business-like, aggressive, having difficulty relaxing; and are sometimes disliked by individuals with Type B personalities for the way that they’re always rushing. They are often high-achieving workaholics who multi-task, drive themselves with deadlines, and are unhappy about delays. Because of these characteristics, Type A individuals are often described as “stress junkies.”
Type B:Type B individuals, in contrast, are described as patient, relaxed, and easy-going, generally lacking an overriding sense of urgency. Because of these characteristics, Type B individuals are often described by Type A’s as apathetic and disengaged. There is also a Type AB mixed profile for people who cannot be clearly categorized.
I’m curious which one are you or a little bit of both?!
