Answers may vary, but should contain the following for full credit:
Type A personality refers to a person who is competitive, impatient, verbally aggressive, and easily angered. In almost direct contrast, Type B individuals are easygoing and relaxed. Type D personalities are characterized by distress (hence the "D"). These people experience increased negative emotions but avoid self-expression. This "bottled up" nature of Type D personalities has been linked tentatively to cardiovascular disease (in particular the prognosis in those who have been diagnosed with heart disease), likely through the moderators of an unhealthy lifestyle. In contrast, the "explosive" nature of Type A personalities has been linked more consistently with the development of heart disease, and the hostility/anger component of Type A seems particularly implicated. Finally, Type B personalities typically have relatively few cardiovascular complaints.
