You may have heard people say they are "Type A"--you may be one of those people yourself--but understanding what it truly means to have a "Type A personality" can be transformative, both in how you manage stress and in how you recognize and respond to those who may be "Type A."

Do you tend to feel gloomy, keep to yourself, hide your emotions from others and tend to see the glass as half empty? You might be a type D personality.
Personality types were originally identified by cardiologists in the 1950's to help determine patients who might be at greater risk for heart disease. As research has continued to develop over the years, more personality types have been identified and labeled with specific letters to represent a found set of patterned personality traits.
You have likely heard of type A personality before, which involves traits such as competitiveness, aggressiveness, and high levels of ambition. People with type A personality are found to be at greater risk of experiencing cardiac health complications such as high blood pressure and heart disease.

Abstract: In his recent The Rediscovery of the Mind John Searle tries to destroy cognitive science and preserve a future in which a ''perfect science of the brain'' (1992, p. 235) arrives. I show that Searle can't accomplish both objectives. The ammunition he uses to realise the first stirs up a maelstrom of consciousness so wild it precludes securing the second.
