Often, I talk about being a ‘type A’ personality.
Wikipedia describes a Type A individual as,”ambitious, aggressive, business-like, controlling, highly competitive, impatient, preoccupied with his or her status, time-conscious, arrogant and tightly-wound. People with Type A personalities are often high-achieving “workaholics” who multi-task, push themselves with deadlines, and hate both delays and ambivalence.”
Eek. Good or bad, that’s me! While I’m trying to be more laid back in general, I find that it’s easier when I have things under control or, if someone else is doing it, what the status is.
The JA is totally a type B – described as, “People with Type B personalities are generally patient, relaxed, easy-going, and at times lacking an overriding sense of urgency. These individuals tend to be sensitive of other people’s feelings.”
I guess opposites really do attract?
(Oh, Paula Abdul. Fun fact: Forever Your Girl was one of my first cassette tape purchases.)
