Psychology is the study of human behavior and mind. That is the reason it always has a mystical aura around it. Psychology helps people to understand themselves and their surroundings better. A number of experiments are carried out everyday to serve this purpose. As we all know, human behavior is constantly changing and so are the tests to analyze it. One such test is the type of personality test.
Every individual has a different personality, however, there are certain traits that are commonly seen in everybody. Based on these traits, certain tests have been compiled. One such test is the type B test that was first introduced in 1921. Type A and type B people are very opposite to each other. A person's behavior can change from time to time, so will these personality tests be still useful? Well, the answer to this question is definitely affirmative. Because, though human behavior changes, there are some major qualities in each person that never change. These tests are based on these non-changeable characteristics. Following table will tell you the difference between type a and type b personality.
Type A vs. Type B Personality
|Type A||Type B|
|Always stressed out||Hardly stressed|
|Very ambitious||Does not mind losing|
It is very clear from this table that Type A people are stress junkies, whereas type B people are cool like a cucumber! If you are still confused whether you are type A or type B, take the following test. This test will clearly tell you your personality.
