Apparently, I have more A-type in me than I thought. I scored 8 out of 10. I don’t know how valid or research-backed the test I took actually is, but here’s the link, anyway. It’s a quickie for my fellow Type-A’s: https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/AB.php
The description at the end of the test actually does sound like me: ambitious, rigid, organized. Can be sensitive, caring, impatient, helpful, sometimes obsessive. It kind of also sounds like other Type-A’s I’ve known, too.
I think one of the cats is Type-A, as well. At least in that he seems rigid and obsessive.
I don’t know what to do about this cat, to be perfectly honest with you. He’s not very nice. He attacks Derek spontaneously, for no apparent reason that I can see. He was a package deal last year, along with his companion cat, Shane, from the NHSPCA.
And Shane, the other cat, is the sweetest, gentlest kitty I have ever seen. I think they’re litter mates, and if we ever tried to split them up, I’m afraid Shane would be devastated.
I suppose I ought to try pheromone collars again, to mellow out at least Finny. They’re expensive, but I am working again. Maybe I’ll just get one for him; Shane doesn’t really need it; he’s 100% B: stress-free, as far as I can tell.
The only thing is, I can’t remember if the pheromones made that much of a difference before. They were originally intended for behavior modification toward each other and around toileting.
On a totally unrelated note, I had a healthy dinner. I cut my portions by half again and only used 5 points. I’m not stuffed, just satisfied. Now how often can I say I feel satisfied by something without secretly craving more of it?
I need a steamy hot shower before bed to shave and moisturize. Might help me sleep better tonight.
