From the above questions, if you mostly answered “yes”, congratulations! It’s exactly as you suspected… you have a Type C personality.

You like to spend time with people that actually get you. You actually care about people but feel uncomfortable expressing yourself. And you often give in to others’ whims because you want to avoid conflicts.

You try to make sure that you do everything perfectly and this impacts your mental health negatively. You spend lots of time on perfectionism. Similar to type A you also become prone to heart diseases. You don’t like disheveled spaces. You judge others who can’t keep up with your working style.

If you answered “yes” to less than even half of the questions, you’re not a Type C personality.

A word from ThePleasantPersonality

If your personality type is C, that’s great… it seems your guess was right from the beginning. However, knowing your personality type must not be your only aim.

You must try to use this knowledge to enhance your life. Find out your strengths and weaknesses, work on them, learn how you must deal with your issues, and use the pros for your benefit.

However, don’t try to be someone else… don’t idolize another personality type. Even if someone judges you for being a C type, remember that you’re one of a kind. So, compete only with yourself and not others. Watch yourself become a happier and more satisfied person.
