Personalities are what form us as a person and what sets us apart from other individuals. In late 1976, cardiologists Friedman and Rosenman discovered Type A personality behavior by mere accident after realizing that their waiting-room chairs were in a much-needed help.
When the chairs were being handled by an upholsterer, he could not help but notice that the chairs were worn out unusually. Most patients wait patiently, but the cardiac patients always seemed unable to sit calmly and tended to worn out the chairs' arms. The cardiologists discarded this matter at that time, only to begin their formal research five years later.
Originally, Friedman and Rosenman called it ‘Type A personality’, it is now regarded as a set of behavioral responses known as Type A Behavior Pattern.
