(KTVI) - are you high strung? Low key?  Whichever your personality type, it could be affecting your health.   Licensed Family Therapist Kelly DeVere breaks it down for us.
Type A personalities - hard-driving, competitive, status-conscious, and seemingly achievement-addicted - were more prone to coronary heart disease and heart attacks.

-Type B-Relaxed, less stressed, Flexble. Emotional and expressive, laid back attitude

-What's type D?
Negativity, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, and loneliness.  Three times the risk for future heart problems, including peripheral artery disease, heart failure, and death, compared to more optimistic sorts.
