Being Labeled as ‘Type A’ Drives Me Crazy! What Is Your Type? [VIDEO]

Personality Test

Some people who know me, work with me, or have anything to do me are sometimes quick to label me “Type A.” They might be right. But constantly reminding me of this fact drives me crazy! I hear you guys when you say, “She’s just really … Type A.” To me, it’s not really a “bad thing,” but seems one dimensional. According to Wikipedia, here is the definition of a Type A personality:

The theory describes a Type A individual as ambitious, rigidly organized, highly status conscious, can be sensitive, 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.

I have to admit that I see some of these traits in myself, but not all. I do push myself to be better, I work all the time and I do stress a lot! What I’m not is rude, impatient and rigid.

I spoke with a friend and co-worker about this post and he suggested I take the Humanetrics test on-line. (The test is according to the Myers Briggs theory). I took the test and wow, it seemed to “peg me to a tee.”

According to this test, I’m an ESFT. Broken down, it means I’m an Extrovert who uses their Senses more then Intuition, Feelings over Thinking and Judge over Perception. This test can help anyone understand themselves and those around them, by how you take in information, how you make decisions and how you organize your life.

It also is can give some insight on what careers would be best for you.

Now when I hear people call me “Type A,” I’ll inform that I’m not “Type A.” I’m in fact, an ESFT and you are D-U-M-B!
