(I’ve got) Personality.

November 11, 2011
My Physical Therapist (I’m working out a back problem) referred to me as “Type A” the other day and I was appalled!  I went online (of course) to research Type A personality and took a quiz found here.   Discovery Health website described Type A personality as:

“According to the scientific literature, the Type A Personality construct describes someone who is aggressively involved in a chronic, incessant struggle to achieve more and more in less and less time. The defining characteristics of the Type A Behavior Pattern (TABP) are a strong drive to succeed, hostility, competitiveness, perfectionism, a desire for recognition, wealth and advancement, difficulty talking about feelings, and a sense of urgency and impatience. More up-to-date research has found that there are actually two main types of behaviors in the TABP: Achievement Striving and Impatience-Irritability.”

I took the short quiz, knowing each question that I answered I was failing.  My results:

I’m definitely not dissatisfied with others or the world…maybe just the paint color I chose for the kitchen (wink wink).   I know I can be intense, impulsive, and “go-go-go” all the time and I’m just gonna chalk this up to a serious  obsession for DIY and design…braahaaahaaa!!!  At least I didn’t score a perfect 100%.

I found these funny (and true) comics  here and here.  At least I can laugh about it!

Happy DIY’ing this weekend!
