A couple of weeks back, I entered into a meeting room and I was informed that I am a Type A personality. I didn’t know at the the time the traits of the personality type A. So they told me it is Alpha Male because I demand control and attention around me. Well it sounded like me a little.

So today, I decided to look it up a little more  on that topic today and it was nice and shocking. Here is what I quote from Wikipedia

The theory describes a Type A individual as ambitious, rigidly organized, highly status conscious, can be sensitive, care for other people, are truthful, impatient, always try to help others, take on more than they can handle, want other people to get to the point, proactive, and obsessed with time management. People with Type A personalities are often high-achieving “workaholics” who multi-task, push themselves with deadlines, and hate both delays and ambivalence

And then http://www.simplypsychology.org/personality-a.html cites

Type A behavior: competitive, ambitious, impatient, aggressive, fast talking.

Well not that does sound like me. Now the shocking part.

Some scholars argue that Type A behavior is not a good predictor of coronary heart disease

 

Well well – I think age is catching up fast with all these symptoms in last couple of years and I think I to slow down a bit.
