Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Type A individuals often get easily aroused to anger or hostility, which they may or may not express overtly. Such individuals tend to see the worse in others, displaying anger, envy and a lack of compassion.

When this behavior is exposed overtly (i.e. physical behavior) it generally involves aggression and possible bullying (Forshaw, 2012).Hostility, intense ambition & competitive drive, appears to be the main factor linked to heart disease and is a better predictor than the TAPB as a whole.


The Type B personality generally lives at a lower stress level and are typical


·  They work steadily, enjoying achievements but not becoming stressed when they are not achieved.

·  They may be creative and enjoy exploring ideas and concepts.

·  They are often reflective, thinking about the outer and inner worlds.

By performing educational  & psychological interventions in the community and increasing people’s awareness about the psychological factors of CHD can have an effective role to reduce the type A & type B.
