What is a Type A Personality?

Type A Personality. It looks good on a resume. It sings of straight A’s on your report card. And, like it does in the alphabet, it implies good things to come while standing at the head of any line.

As a matter of fact, if you’ve tossed the phrase “I’m a Type A personality” out as a brag at your latest job interview, the implications are clearly defined in your mind: you are a multi-tasking, hard-working, results-driven individual who will put the job first. In your eyes, there is no “second”. You are driven to succeed and win.

Are Free Personality Tests Worth Your Time?

Free personality quizzes have become increasingly popular, but why are people so fascinated by them?

Personality Types in Culture: The Evolution of the Rebel

Rebels have been part of our culture since the beginning of story telling. Sometimes they’re the good guys, the heroes who stand up for the poor, the weak and the ones without voices.

Should You Turn Your Hobby Into a Business?

Do friends just happen to stop in when you’re baking cookies or homemade pies? Or maybe you knit trendy hats and scarves to give as gifts, or fix relatives’ computers for free just because you can.

Why We Can All Develop Even Blends of Extraversion and Introversion

Ambiverts have contemplative ideas like an Introvert and also possess the ability to sell or implement those ideas in a competitive environment like an Extravert.
