3 Personality Types That Make You Unique

3 Personality Types That Make You Unique

Last update: 13 October, 2023

Your personality reveals who you really are. It encompasses your physical traits as well as your mental ones, which make you different from everyone else. All of the traits which make you unique. But, at times, we have wanted to identify within a group of people that possess our same traits or have similarities. Here we are referring to types of personalities.

There are various theories in this respect. Today, we will discuss one that differentiates between the personality types A, B and C. This classification of personalities was highly criticized when it was published. And, even now, the debate perdures.

“Your personality is the best accessory you can wear.”
-Roberto Cavalli-

The personality types A and B were determined by Friedman and Rosenmann in the year 1959. These two types were complete opposites. This way, individuals could feel identified with one or the other more easily. This excluded the current problem of feeling like your personality has a little of A and a little of B.

But it wasn’t until 1980 when Morris and Creer thought to present another type of personality, one which they named “Type C Personality”. This third type allowed people that didn’t feel identified with the previously described types to fit into a group. Or maybe not? Today we’re going to discover what each of these types of personality reveals.

1. Type A Personality

You know those people who always seems to be in a hurry? Is there someone in your family addicted to their job? People who fit into this type of personality are very hyperactive, energetic and splendidly productive. The would do anything for the sake of their jobs. And it also makes them forget, a little bit, about their family and friends.


With all of this, type A personality is characterized by competitiveness, that need to be better than others. At times, this can lead them to step on the toes of the people around them in order to achieve what they want. This can result in a great deal of aggressiveness. It manifests itself by putting down the work of others and denying help to someone who needs it.

To people with type A personality, work is something fundamental and indispensable in their lives. It is their nucleus, the center of everything.

Based on this, people that fit into this group are sometimes cold, or at least that’s the impression they give off. They repress their emotions, are insensitive and always appear tough and firm. Sometimes, all of this is a facade to repress a terrible sense of insecurity. Without a doubt, they are very susceptible to suffering from stress or anxiety.

2. Type B Personality

Contrary to the one previously described, people who fit into this type are very mellow. This type of people don’t tend to get stressed easily. Due to this, they tend to arrive late often, but they don’t get nervous about it. They have all the time in the world.

People with type B personality are also big lovers of sleep. So, getting up early or sleeping less than 8 hours doesn’t really fit into their plans. This makes them live a very peaceful life, without any pressures. In fact, they don’t care about competing in order to be the best. They acknowledge and accept their limits and feel comfortable with who and what they are. They don’t have to be better than anyone else.

People with this type of personality accept life just the way it is, allowing everything to just go with the flow.


One of the greatest characteristics of this type of personality is that they tend to be much more empathetic and warm. They have no problems socializing, since they attract people with their charming smile. Also, they are very attractive due to the great deal of confidence they have in themselves. Usually they have a great deal of self-esteem.

3. Type C Personality

This last type of personality is the most controversial, since it encloses the most passive and submissive types of individuals. People that feel identified in this group feel defenseless in the face of certain stressful situations or unexpected events. No matter how hard they try, they can’t help but feel helpless.

This causes them to, often times, be victims of abuse and manipulative people. This is because they appear submissive and conformist to what lies ahead. They aren’t capable of making decisions and are very afraid of doing so. Their insecurity is much more serious than that of the people with type A personality.

People with type C personality suffer from continuous emotional blocks that can have negative consequences on their health.

One characteristic of this group is that these people inhibit their emotions. That is to say, they keep their emotions to themselves. This way, they swallow down anger, disappointment, sadness, and don’t manage to express them in order to find some relief. This leads to serious problems with depression.


Did you identify with one of these groups? These types of personalities date back many many years, and many things have changed since then. Thus, it has been a highly criticized typology which, for many, lacked and still lacks rigor. What do you think? To which group do you think you could belong to?
