In this week's sales meeting my new manager hit me with the line "It's okay Patricia, I know you're type A personality" and I was all offended - "I'M NOT TYPE A! I just like to be organized and prepared..."
I took that as a curse when he said it (mind you he's also called me "pushy" and "demanding"), so I take everything he says kinda personally.
And now I'm sitting here thinking - "Am I type A"?
Competitiveness (UhHuh - CHECK)
- Strong Achievement-Orientation (Bingo - CHECK)
I AM Type A.
Is that bad?
I even took a little quiz on line and my answer was "You appear to have Type A personality traits".
I like to think of myself as Calm, Cool and Collected but apparently I'm not fooling anyone!
What personality trait are you?
Should I be offended to be called Type A?
