    Are Type A and Type B Personalities Supposed to Compete with Each Other?

    I myself am 70% type A and am pro capitalism. I had a thought. It seems like the predominantly type A personalities tend to gravitate towards capitalism, the predominantly type B's socialism or democracy, and the A/B intermediates are usually communist (I can just tell). So, I am wondering, is the polarization on this forum of capitalists Vs. national socialists basically a disagreement between A's and B's? Is it vital for our evolution for nature to create people with oppositional behavior patters?

    http://cl1.psychtests.com/take_test.php?idRegTest=2986 If you don't know whether you would classify as type A or type B and would like to know, just take this test, its quite fast and accurate if you answer honestly.
    Under Capitalism man exploits man; under socialism the reverse is true.

    I took the test and I'm an embarrasing only 52% Type A (much higher than my grandfather)although considering I took the test fast (adds to Type A). I don't know if they're compatible or not but I have little patience or tolerance for Type B people who think there's all the time in the world and I get annoyed with type B's and I also think that B personality is inferior to A personality.

    But my mother and her siblings are Type B and her father even more so , therefore I think it's extremely unlikely there is a genetic factor. Mostly environmental.


    I created a similar thread to test wether Germans can be Type B or not: http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=137262

    Actually, pure type A's are nothing short of problematic. People like this will probably die middle aged from a heart attack or disease. There is a stong recessive type A gene in my family and the people who had it died middle aged when they were trying to relax basically. Even when type A's know how to relax, they still have problems because they're still unhappy because they're meant to compete and they feel bad about themselves. It only makes things worse if they're also the type that thinks a lot.

    The A/B intermediates or slightly predominant B's are the most balanced and capable individuals IMO, but they usually aren't as successful as the type A's on a larger scale. Type A's will almost always be somewhat unhappy, so that effects their productiveness and lifespan, while type B's will be much happier/easy to please and will have less productiveness on a grander scale but will live a much longer lifespan. Nothing is really inferior or superior, I think it's just a mechanism of nature to have individuals born with different behavioral drives.

    Why did you do that? That's a question that's just silly. I didn't mean to create a stir about what's Germanic and what's not. Oh well.

    I created it about 7 months ago. Although I don't state that's the sole reason for conducting the experiement, that was one of the primary motives.

    This is an interesting question feisty, thanks for asking it. I consider myself intermediate between A and B. I took the test and my score was a 60 out of 100, slightly more A personality than B as I predicted.

    Quote Originally Posted by Discovery Health
    You have many of the characteristics of a Type A Personality. Type A Personality is characterized by two main factors, Achievement Striving and Impatience-Irritability. Type A persons tend to measure their success in terms of how many or how much of everything they acquire. They are generally dissatisfied with the world, including themselves. They are quite rigid in thought and conduct and tend to distrust others. In addition, they experience difficulty expressing their emotions, are generally very critical of themselves and others, and are of increased vulnerability to the physical and emotional effects of stress. Persons displaying Type A behaviors do not know how and when to relax. They feel impatient with the pace of most events. They strive to do too much at once and others often get tense and feel threatened in their presence.
    Most of this describes me except I don't have much of an aversion to expressing my emotions with words. I simply do not have a lot of emotions. Or is that what it means? I also work well under stress and almost thrive on it. I do get really stressed out over important things like due dates relating to work because I tend to cram at the end, but always get things done on time. I get really stressed if I am not working fast enough to make the deadline and then I work faster. I might suffer emotional/physical effects from this but I tough it out and do it anyway. My idea of relaxing has often been playing a stressful first-person shooter game. But I don't have a problem actually relaxing with friends, especially with some alcohol, haha.

    Anyway: I know from first-hand experience that free capitalism is completely incompatible with nationalism. I like capitalism as it is the system I know, but I absolutely disagree with free international capitalism. Bill Clinton signed a bill that allowed my father's computer programming/payroll career to be outsourced to India to be done by seven Indians. This happened while I was in high school and as a result I had to go to the cheapest in-state university. Coincidently, the cheapest in-state university is also the most leftist and multicultural. Once there, they tried to tell me that the very system that forced me to go there with 90% of everyone else having polar opposite dreamland political opinions was a good system. Ha!

    Perhaps it is true. I am a mix of A and B but mostly A. To reiterate: I like capitalism because it is what I know, but I absolutely would never inact free international capitalism on my own free will. I consider national socialism to have many valid points and a good example to follow. The preservation of my people is more important than any amount of money. I probably would have done well being born into a national socialist state. However, to make the transition now would be a bit awkward. But I would surely want to do it to replace the current rotten system. I might not like giving up certain liberties, but for the greater good, it would definitely be worth folkish preservation. A modified American form of national socialism might be more appropriate.

    I believe in private enterprise, but not laissez-faire capitalism and I certainly don't agree with globalisation and globailsed capitalism. I believe in free trade only to an extent and not to the extent that it adversely affects a country's national economy. I have no idea of whether I am a Type A or B personality, and I don't really know what these terms actually mean.

    I sense you are type B. You are laid-back and not intense.

    They're pretty easy to understand, if you truly get annoyed by people that walk in front of you or are unable to be happy unless things are as perfect as you want them to be, then you're probably more type A. Type A's are kind of like horses that will run to the death and type B's are the very opposite.

    People claim it's environmental, but I know that's so not true. It's innate, I was born with an overly ambitious and intense personality (I was the kid who cared about every little detail and I was naturally meticulous and also threw a lot of bad fits) and kids can't possibly be effected that much by the environment. Someone's true intensity and drive can only be altered so much by the way a person grows up. Time-impatience is going to be a bit different if you live in a rural area rather than NY, but you still have that predisposition.

    There has to be more types than just these two. I cannot stand type either A or B's. Whenever I meet a type A, I want to completely humiliate or subjugate him or her. And whenever I meet a type B, I want to leave or walk away, since they're passive follower types. Type B's are passionless and type A's are directionless, rather unintelligent people. So both are inferior types imo.

    I am type A and lean towards Fascism, with me leading our people, and raising our iron banner high, so that it may flow over all our loyal compatriots, a symbol of our glory and our unity, as we burn the world to the ground, and out of the ashes, a lone trumpet calls, and in the distance voices raise, "Die Fahne hoch".

    Damn, that was a run-on sentence.
    Ein Kampf, Ein Sieg! Fur Prussia!
