Personality Types

Are you Hardy personality or stress-prone personality?

If you are this type, then you have a strong need for achievement, which makes you highly competitive.

You are always in a hurry and have several deadlines to meet.

These types of peoples are often overloaded with work, unhappy with their colleagues,

And friends and work best in demanding situations.

Because you are prone to angry outbursts, you are more likely to have heart-related problems.

Consider the case of Morshed, an HR Professional.

He remains stress-free, does not get worried over office pressure, plans out his day.

And does not drive his mind and body like crazy.

He likes to do his work peacefully and at the same time always manages to get all his work done on time.

He remains happy and hardly loses his temper. Is this you?

Well, then you are a different personality.

You have a laid-back attitude, are easygoing, noncompetitive and placid and can weather stress easily.

You will have more rewarding and fulfilling interpersonal relationships like Ershad.

Ershad is a 35-year-old Engineer, who is married and has two children.

He loves his job, as it pays well and there is not too much stress.

And he loves his family and spends time with them, taking care of their needs.

Ershad could be the manager of the bank but he believes in living life to the fullest and takes things as they come.

Has a vast social circle of friends and has a very cordial relationship with his co-workers and subordinates.

He would do well in creative writing.

Suspicious personality

Are you too Passive?

People who fall under this category are unassertive, dependent on others and always needing their approval.
