26: Maybe too Relaxed?

Date Girl and her sister took the Personality Type quiz and both had 52. I tried it and had 26, maybe a bit too laid back.

You seem to be far from having a Type A personality. Your attitude to life is more of the “smell the roses” kind. You know how and when to relax. The hostile, aggressive and competitive part of you surfaces rarely. You are easy to be around, and people tend to feel relaxed and comfortable in your presence. It’s a very healthy attitude towards life. Just make sure you don’t miss important opportunities because of being too cool and relaxed. Picking up a challenge and competing a little bit for your place in the sun can add some spice to your life.

My Dad was a type A most of the time. He drove us all to be really happy when he was not home. Once he walked in the door a cloud would settle over the house. I never want that to be my life so I have always made an effort not to be a type A asshole. Possibly I have gone too far the other way. But, I see my sister who is a type A in business and pushes her kids to excel quite a bit, all with good intentions. Maybe after so many years I have grown into being how I am but I can’t see myself having that drive to push anything so hard. It isn’t lack of ambition just lack of wanting to give up so much to get so little results. I think it is true that you can get more with honey than vinegar. I do push people but not in that same type A, demanding way. I’m subtle and nice and I do tend to get people to do what I think they should. Kind of interesting really.

Try it for yourself.
