Those who come under the Type-A side of the personality spectrum are more driven, more focused, more ambitious, and more goal-oriented. They are also likely to get more stressed and more prone to mental breakdowns and physical illnesses.
On the other end of the spectrum are the people who come under the Type B side of the personality spectrum. These are people who are more laid back, go with the flow, and live in the present!
They know how to take pleasure in both the route and the goal. It is also said that “Type A” people are more likely than “Type B” people to suffer from mental breakdowns and heart illness as a result of their high-stress lifestyle. These are the two extremes of the personality spectrum, and it is always preferable to combine the best of each to achieve a balanced personality.
But in today’s highly competitive world, most people fall in the Type A personality spectrum. If you are wondering, if you’re a Type A personality, you’re in the right place. Here is a free and interesting visual test to assess if you’re a Type A personality or not.
Let’s get started.
1) The leaves. If the first thing that caught your attention, when you looked at the image is “The leaves”, then my friend you’re a Type A for sure. You are highly ambitious and always on the go. I would just advise you to learn to slow down and look around the ocean for a while. Enjoy a sunset or coffee or walks in nature. Enjoy the journey as well while you strive to reach your destination, my highly strung friend.
Look at the optical illusion that is below this text. What was the first thing in the image that caught your attention? Once you’ve done this, scroll down and find out how what you saw reveals how much of a type of personality you are. 2) The roots. If the first thing that caught your attention, when you looked at the image was “The roots”, then you are a little bit of Type-A.
You’re both well-organized and forgetful. However, you should be cautious to evaluate if your personality type is a result of your general concern about life and yourself. People who perceive themselves to be Type A personalities are more likely to suffer from high functioning sadness and anxiety.
Make sure that you do not hide behind labels like Type A personality to stay in denial and do not see your mental anxiety and depression for what it is. 3) The lips. If the first thing that caught your attention when you looked at the image was “The lips”, then you are not even remotely Type A
You probably knew it in your heart and didn’t want to take the test in the first place. I would just suggest you get a little bit of structure and order in your life along with the ability to slow down. If you get the balance of a little drive and a little laid-back attitude, then you can have the best of both worlds.
