and obsessed with time management. People with Type A
personalities are often high-achieving "workaholics" who

personality by definition generally live at a lower
stress level and typically work steadily, enjoying
achievements but not becoming stressed when they
are not achieved. When faced with competition, they
do not mind losing and either enjoy the game or back

and concepts. They are often reflective, thinking
about the outer and inner worlds. Furthermore, Type
B personalities may have a poor sense of time
schedule and can be predominately right brained
