The Four Main Personality Types: Type A, B, C and D

There are four main personality types: Type A, B, C and D. Knowing the four personality types is helpful when dealing with yourself and other people. You can build faster rapports and deeper connections when you know how you and others handle stress. Plus, if there are things you don’t like about your personality, you can work on changing your behaviors and controlling your reactions.

Let’s review the four main personality types and which one applies to you. Keep in mind that each personality type is a continuum, meaning that there are extremes on both ends. 

Type A Personality: The Overachiever 

Type A people are go-getters. They are organized, competitive and ambitious. People with this personality know how to put their time to good use and often set goals to stay on target. They also tend to push the boundaries and go outside their comfort zone, allowing them to be overachievers in their personal and professional lives. 

At first glance, Type A traits are positive. However, there are disadvantages to having this personality type. For example, Type A people are more likely to be stressed and anxious. Because they are cautious with their time, they tend to be impatient as well. Additionally, Type A people sometimes feel less satisfied with their lives and have the “grass is greener on the other side” mentality. 

Type B Personality: The Relaxed One 

Type B people are opposites from Type A, but remember that there are different sides a person can be on. Typically, people with a Type B personality are more relaxed, consistent and content. They are less competitive and more peaceful and grounded. It takes a lot to make a Type B person angry. 

It’s easy to be social as a Type B person because they are tolerant and emotionally stable. They find it easy to relax and have a good time, but this can make it difficult for them to reach their full potential. It’s not uncommon for Type Bs to procrastinate and be late for meetings and deadlines. 

Type C Personality: The Perfectionist 

Type C people share a lot of the same traits as Type A people, but there are some key differences. For example, the Type C personality places a strong focus on details and accuracy. They strive for excellence and prefer to focus on one area than spreading themselves thin across many. 

People with a Type C personality must have a routine and be able to focus on one thing at a time. They rarely break the rules and are more introverted than other personalities. Unfortunately, the perfectionism can get tiring at times, and they often get bogged down trying to make things perfect. Type Cs are also not quick to make decisions – they need time to think things over. 

Type D Personality: The Sensitive One 

Type D people have a tendency to be negative. They often feel isolated, angry and alone and tend to experience more negative emotions than other people. Because they are afraid of rejection, people with this personality often suppress their emotions, which can lead to bigger problems down the road.

But a D personality isn’t all bad – there are lots of good traits, too! Type D people are warm and sensitive to others’ needs and emotions. They love to help and give advice and are often a source of wisdom for others. People with Type D traits also have a realistic view of life and a good head on their shoulders. 


As mentioned before, no one is completely one personality type. Usually, there is a dominant personality type and traits from the others. It’s also common to have different personalities depending on the situation you are in. You may be more Type C at work and Type B at home. The point of reflecting on your personality is to acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses – awareness is always key to personal change and growth
