There are four major behavioral patterns, in which we can classify human beings. It is popularly known as ABCD.
Type A: The Achievers or go-getter:
They are very aggressive about life and their goals. They stand first in line for any competition and always zealous to win. They can easily get out of their comfort zone and openly accept challenges. They are generally workaholics and agog with every aspect of life.
Negatively, people who fall under this category are mostly hassled and frazzled. They don’t stay for long in a job and keep looking for better options. Though they are proactive people, they may come across as rebellious and impulsive.
Type B: The Relaxed and tolerant:
Unlike type A, they are relaxed about life and situations. They react in a relaxed manner and concentrate on consistent growth rather than being ambitious. They are very intuitive and empathetic. They are pragmatic people who are influential and have a great friend circle owing to their friendly nature.
On the negative side: They tend to procrastinate and dead-lines scare them. They may lag in time management and decision-making.
Type C: Perfectionist:
They are people who diligently follow rules and respect the management. They are not go-getter types, but followers. Their expertise is in one single field where they put in all their time and energy. They love routine and details
On the negative side, they cannot work with vague knowledge. Any disturbance in routine can bother them. They use more logic than emotions.
Type D: Distressed and negative:
They are the people who have a pessimistic outlook on life and always stay in fight-flight syndrome. They are very sensitive and sentimental.
Negatively, they are never open-minded and hide their worries and stress within themselves.
There are many ways to find which type we are,
- If we retrospect our general outlook on life, we could find which type we are.
- Our mood could say a lot.
- Our time management skills
- How well we handle challenges.
- Are we able to complete our works on time or push it towards the deadline?
- How we behave towards our relationships and people who work for us and with us?
- Are we aggressive, relaxed, or scared?
- Our self-esteem and the confidence level with which we could do a job.
- How much importance we give to work
- Are we having a work-life balance?
These are the few questions we could retrospect to find out our behavior pattern. In whichever pattern we fall on, accepting the positive side of it and working towards improving the negatives can help us become a better person.
