If you answered “Yes” at least half of the questions or more, you have type B behavior patterns (TBBP).

In short: Being a B-type, you’re friendly, understanding, mild-mannered, and kind. You’re everyone’s motivator and best buddy. They can approach you regarding anything because they know you won’t judge them at all. You believe in growing with everyone else.

This type of personality doesn’t allow you to take the stress. But this might lead you to troublesome situations like piled-up work and multitasking at the last moment. You can get too immersed in creative and imaginative tasks and forget about sleeping or eating.

You also believe in enjoying every moment of life instead of hurrying to finish small tasks.

If you answered “Yes” less than 25 times, don’t assume you’re a Type A… you might have any other personality type.

A word from ThePleasantPersonality

If your suspicions are correct, i.e., you’re a Type B person, congratulations!

Even if this bitter world calls you lazy and unmotivated, I know your true worth. You do things a bit differently… but that’s all!

Like any other personality type, you have your own strengths and weaknesses. However, there will always be people that’ll highlight your shortcomings more.

Never focus on them. Instead, try to understand and cherish yourself… if anything, be a better person to impress yourself. And lastly, love yourself… The Type B Behavior Patterns only focus on certain average traits.

Don’t forget that you’re not just a personality type… you’re an individual and stereotypes can’t define you. If needed, you can break all stereotypes any day, so be confident!
