These differences can often come to the fore when Type As and Type Bs date each other, with their views on how to date differing drastically at times.
“Type As have a higher need to be in charge and even dominate so expect them to want to take the lead when planning dates,” says Dr Jordan.
“They may be more interested in situations where there is an element of competition or winning. They like to feel productive versus ‘wasting time.’ Type Bs, again, is defined by being the opposite. A Type B person is the sort of partner who says ‘whatever you want’ when asked where to go for dinner, or ‘I don’t care’ when asked which movie to see.
Now, some might wonder if it’s Type As or Type Bs who have an easier ride in the dating game, but, as noted by Jordan, each individual situation is different and both personality types have their challenges.
