The Classification of personality types into the 4 major categories A, B, C, and D is one of the most accurate assessments there are.
Chances are, you’re not going to be 100% of one type- you will probably be two, or maybe even three. But knowing where we land when it comes to our personalities can help us to understand ourselves better, and appreciate our strengths as well as our weaknesses.
M.Farouk Radwan, who holds a Masters in Science, describes the 4 personality types as such:
Type A personality traits
Type A personalities are competitive, high achievers and have a high sense of time urgency. As a result of these combined traits Type A’s are always found to be busy working on their own projects. Type A’s felt insecure at one point of their lives and so they decided to fight the insecurity by changing their lives and making achievements as fast as they can.
Type B personality traits
Type B’s are the opposite of type A’s. They are relaxed, laid back and not easily stressed. While type B can be achievers too still they won’t be as competitive as Type A’s. Tybe b can delay work and do it in the last moment, some of them can turn into procrastinators which is something that a type A can never do.
Type C personality traits
Type C personalities love details and can spend a lot of time trying to find out how things work and this makes them very suitable for technical jobs. Type C are not assertive at all and they always suppress their own desires even if there is something that they dislike. The lack of assertiveness results in tremendous stress and sometimes in depression. Type Cs are very vulnerable to depression compared to type A and type B.
Type D personality traits
D stands for distressed, Type D’s have a negative outlook towards life and are pessimistic. A small event that is not even noticed by type B can ruin type D’s day. Type D might become socially withdrawn as a result of fear of rejection even if they like to be around people. Type D’s are famous for suppressing their emotions and this makes them the most vulnerable type to depression.
So which one are you? Let’s find out!
