The type D personality
The Type D personality or the distressed personality is the type of personality characterized by both a negative attitude towards life combined with the person's preference to suppress his emotions.
Type D personalities are pessimistic, negative and always expect the worse to happen.
In my article dealing with suppressed emotions i explained how one of the common reasons for depression is suppressing emotions instead of expressing them and that's why Type D personalities are always subject to depression more than anyone else.
Type D personality traits
Thus assuming that type D personalities lack social interest is not correct but the right thing is that they might be interested in people but afraid to approach them because they fear rejection.
Negative emotions such as worrying, stress, depression and anger visit type D personalities more often. A small event that is usually overlooked by others can bother a type D a lot and even ruin his mood.
What to do if you have a Type D personality
The first thing you must understand about personality types is that they have nothing to do with genes. This means that if you have a Type D personality then this doesn't mean that you can't change it.
The problem with personality type quizzes that people find on the internet is that they make them believe that the result of the quiz determines their destiny rather than letting them know that according to psychology any personality trait can be changed.
Here is how to change if you are a Type D personality:
Final words about Type D personality
Your current personality is the result of the past experiences you have been through and your coping skills.
By changing your coping skills you can change your personality or get rid of the unwanted traits that you dislike.
In short, if you are a Type D you can certainly change that.
