Dating Expectations: Type A vs Type B Personalities

#3 They are more conscious of how other people perceive them. This can be either good or bad, depending on how you wish others to perceive you. If you don’t care, then that’s fine. However, your Type A partner might, and you will have to compromise on some things like how they deal with other people and how they might push their own views onto you.

#4 They are usually impatient. Does this mean that you have to be the patient one all the time? Not necessarily, but it does mean that your partner tends to make decisions quickly. It could also spell trouble for time management if you’re the type who usually arrives or prepares late for events and situations.

#5 They can easily become anxious or aggressive. The reason why some doctors are so concerned about people with Type A personalities is that they are more likely to expose themselves to unnecessary stress. Their penchant for being workaholics can take a toll on their body, and this usually manifests through anxiety and aggression. If you’re planning on dating someone with a Type A personality, you better be prepared to take them as they are during the good times and the bad.

Conclusion: Type A personalities are surrounded by negative assumptions, but that is just because people relate these traits to negative outcomes. Ambitious and organized people are poised for success, which may make the sacrifice worth it. Their organization and conscientiousness is also a positive factor because it can influence other people to improve themselves. As for their less than savory traits, everybody is entitled to one flaw or another – just make sure that it does not harm other people or yourself.
