Reading This Made Me Anxious, Irritable, and Pessimistic

Type D Personalities Should Be Very Concerned About Their Health: "Now, Type D's have been described as anxious, irritable, and pessimistic. They are the grumps and the grouches of the world. They are not necessarily clinically depressed; negativity is just an overwhelming feature of their personalities.

Though some early studies had shown that Type A's were at the greatest risk for cardiovascular disease, later research found fault with that data. Now an in depth literature research of 49 previous studies involving 6000 patients, found that it's Type D personalities who are the most likely to have cardiovascular disease and are those most likely to have another cardiac incident after experiencing the first one. They are three times more likely than other personality types, according to this research, to experience peripheral artery disease, heart failure, and heart attack."

You mean the people who say... And stay off my lawn!

That's not me, despite what my wife might say. I'm more the A/C type. Bill, you must be type B.
