Tempering the Type A Personality

type-aThere are pros and cons to being a Type A personality, but some of those traits can be detrimental to your health. Here are a few characteristics:

  • Competitive
  • Persistent sense of urgency in everything they do
  • Have difficulty relaxing because it’s not a measurable goal
  • Try to squeeze a task into every possible minute
  • Measure the success of each day by how much they get done
  • Always stressed

Some of those qualities can add up to a recipe for a health problem. In fact, two cardiologists first conceived of categorizing people into Type A and Type B after observing how the edge of the seat cushions in their waiting room wore down — as if patients were waiting on the edge of their seat. They subsequently found that Type A personalities were more likely to develop heart disease.
