About Type A and Type B Personality
According to scientific literature, Type A behavior is characterized by an intense and sustained drive to achieve goals and an eagerness to compete. Personalities categorized as Type A tend to have a persistent desire for external recognition and advancement. They are involved in various functions that bring about time restrictions. Such personalities have a tendency to speed up mental and physical tasks with extraordinary mental and physical alertness. These characteristics make for super-achievers and high-powered people.
Type A individuals can get a lot done and have the potential to really move ahead in the world. But there is a high price to pay. Certain components of such a personality can inhibit happiness and even threaten health. For example, the goals that Type A folks set are often poorly defined and therefore hard to achieve—a perfect recipe for misery.
Type A is also characterized by a general discontentedness and the impulse to be overly critical and demanding, even contemptuous of imperfection, in the self and others. This focus on negative aspects and the accompanying bursts of hostility and impatience result in guilt, remorse and anxiety.
Type A personalities are motivated by external sources (instead of by inner motivation), such as material reward and appreciation from others. Type A folks experience a constant sense of opposition, wariness, and apprehension--they are always ready for battle. And anyone can imagine how this constant (and very exhausting) existence would deplete reserves of contentment and happiness and disrupt personal equilibrium.
Although the literature is somewhat inconsistent because of problems with the conceptualization and definition of Type A behavior pattern, it has been linked to higher risks of cardiovascular diseases. The risks seemed to be reduced with intervention aimed at reducing Type A behavior. Indeed, those with a high Type A score would be happier and healthier if they were to file down the jagged edges of their personality. By learning how to control the negative behavior patterns while preserving their drive, Type A people can be successful without sacrificing their emotional well-being.
Type B behavior is usually defined as the absence of Type A behavior. Type B personalities are relaxed and have a laid-back attitude and posture. They are friendly, accepting, patient, at ease, and generally content. They are at peace with themselves and others. They show a general sense of harmony with people, events, and life circumstances. They tend to be trusting. They focus on the positive aspects of things, people and events. Type B folks are self-encouraging, have inner motivation, are stable and have a pleasant mood. They are interested in others and accept trivial mistakes. They have an accepting attitude about trivial mistakes and a problem-solving attitude about major mistakes. They are flexible and good team members. The Type B person is able to lead and be led.

What does your score mean?
You seem to be in the middle between the Type A and Type B personality. In this case, the middle ground is good. Your attitude to life is more of the "smell the roses" kind and you know how and when to relax. Nonetheless, you realize that picking up a challenge and competing a little bit for your place in the sun can add some spice to your life. The equilibrium is important, so don't let your hostile, aggressive, and competitive alter ego take over too often. Generally, you are easy to be around, and people tend to feel relaxed and comfortable in your presence. Yours is a very healthy attitude towards life.

About Healthy Lifestyle

What exactly is a healthy lifestyle? It seems experts are constantly telling us what we should eat, how much to exercise, bad habits to cut back on, how much sunlight to get, what vitamins to take, and on and on until we feel it's just impossible to live up to those lofty standards. We decide that it doesn't really matter how we lead our lives, and cite examples like our great-uncle who smoked like a chimney and ate nothing but bacon but was still hitting the ski slopes at the ripe old age of 98. Despite the occasional blaring exception, however, we can't deny the harsh truth: the lifestyle we choose to lead has a huge impact not only on our physical health, but also on our mental well-being and overall sense of happiness. We CAN change those nasty habits, and we find that when we finally find the courage to make those difficult changes, we feel so much better. We quit smoking and we breathe more easily and start jogging again, we cut the greasy foods out of our diets and we're less sluggish, or we get more shut-eye and feel on the ball at work. In the end, those changes that seemed so painful and nearly impossible become such a part of our lives that we can't imagine how we had lived the old way. We never regret those healthy transformations.
So how do we get off on the right foot and make the decisions that lead us to a healthier and happier lifestyle? First, we need to educate ourselves, to find out what our bodies need to operate smoothly. The next step is to evaluate how we're doing (which you've started doing with the Lifestyle Test. Bravo!). And now, the most challenging but also most satisfying part; we must make real plans to incorporate the necessary changes. As Margaret Fuller once said, "A house is no home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body."

What does your score mean?
Wow! You are doing great. You seem to be paying attention to most major aspects of your health and, when necessary, making a lot of effort to maintain and improve your lifestyle. You should definitely see the pay off in your energy levels, resilience to illness and overall wellbeing. There is, however, always room for improvement. Maybe you could work on those aspects of your lifestyle to which you answered "almost never" or "sometimes" on the test. You've been heading in the right direction, so why not go all the way?
