The world (or the United States, in particular) loooooves Type A folks. We revere these intense go-getters as the perfect worker. Work hard, play hard, git ‘er done.

Type B’s gets a reputation for being laid back slackers or unmotivated, but the reality is that they’re really slow-and-steady types. It’s not that they take their time, it’s that they find working consistently and with focus is more effective for them than the frenetic and wound-up pace of Type A’s. They’re patient, creative, and collected.

Apparently, Type B personality folks have fewer cases of heart disease! If you’re a Type B pup pawrent you’ll know the importance of taking a contemplative moment with your pup. If this sounds like you, you might relate to this list!
