In this thesis I am going to write about my own personality and the associated traits which come with my personality type. I’m going to consider if also if I’m type A, B, or C. also if I’m extrovert or introvert, plus the traits which come in between those levels of personality. I also need to consider if I have an abnormal personality and its origins i.e) psychodynamic, behavioural, cognitive or humanistic.

Personality A is a very strong and bold personality to own. This is typically related to a person with a chronic sense of time and ergency, meaning where ever they go they always need to be on time. A person that has an excessive competitive drive, and is very aggressive and hostile towards others. This person is always setting himself deadlines for things to be done by, this is called “hurry sickness” these people can not bare waiting there turn. This person also has to do several things at once, is insecure about his/her status and need aberration from others. * Type A people = type A people are 2.5 times more likely to develop Connery heart disease. * Type B personality = this personality means that you are less well driven and free from such pressures, which where mentioned previously. * Type C personality = has difficulty in expressing emotion and tense to impress or inhabit emotions. In particularly negative ones such as anger. I think if I had to describe myself as one of those I would have to say I’m personality type B. This is because I’m well laid back and things don’t bother me such as pressures mentioned previously. This personality makes you a chilled person, and that does not really worry about problems in life others would really dwell over. They complete things in their own time and don’t even think about making deadlines for things to be completed by that specific time. Because of this laid back personality type erguency or competitive drive does not come into play, this personality type person just glides through things in life at their own pace with no goal to meet. But this personality type person is more likely to catch cancer, but these personality type people with progress longer as a cancer patient would in the other personality types.

Now I am going to talk about the situation between introvert and extravert personality’s and the traits which come with them.

Introvert = this is a person which predominantly concerned with his or her faults and feelings, rather than with external things. = this results in a shy and unsociable person

Extrovert = this is a person which is predominately concerned with external things or objective considerations.

= this also results in an outgoing person and who is very sociable and very talkative, even to people he/she may not even know in some cases.

Again if I had to pick one that I was I would describe my personality type as type extrovert. So now I’m going to describe the traits that come with extrovert, which best describe me. The first trait that matches me in extrovert is excitable, this mean easily excited of exciting to know, this matches me because I’m very easily excited like for example a trip somewhere with mates, and also I’m an outgoing person so therefore I’m exciting to know. Also the next trait that comes across me which consists in extrovert is changeable, this means appearing different or acting totally different in various circumstances, this fits me because I change the way I act around people, to what the situation is like. The next trait is impulsive, this means that you act on instinct or instantly, to act on impulse, acting momentarily and forceful, this is me because I always act straight away or just on how I feel without thinking about it first and what the consequences may be of making that decision in that way. The next trait is optimistic, this mainly is expecting the best in the best of all possible worlds, this describes me because I always try to look at things positively, even if they are dull and very...
