In the biological plane, its behavior is translated in intense secretions of cor tisol. Prone to suffer immune pathologies, infections, reumatismos, depressions, cancer.

The B type:

Subject intermediate or difficult to classify. Stress stimulates to him or it inhibits to him. The B type represents the ideal type of behavior. But in case of continued and repeated aggressions, this subject can tilt easily towards category C.
