It took a couple of weeks to re-blog this, but I held onto it because it is a beautiful play on words and the way we see the world. I often refer to myself as the prototypical Type A person who is blessed with a a Type B person in Kathy. But, we both enjoy Tai Pei.
The corporate world often utilizes personality profiling tools to determine which category or personality type employees fall into. This is typically done for two reasons:
- To gain insight into our learning styles, tendencies, and blind spots.
- To leverage our strengths and talents for the company’s benefit.
When I was in the corporate world, it was determined that I’m an ENTP on the Myers Briggs, a Maximizer on Strengthsfinder, a high D on the DISC, and orange on the True Colors assessment. Bottom line on top: a Type A personality.
A person with a Type A personality is said to be:
Impatient, have difficulty expressing emotions, competitive, drive, perfectionism, and has an unhealthy dependence on external rewards such as wealth, status, or power.
From my perspective, this doesn’t describe me accurately.
If I’m going to be labeled, I prefer Tai Pei as opposed to Type A — thank you…

Thank you 🙂
You are welcome Laurie.
I have taken these tests often in my career. They never quite get me. Hugs, Barbara
I think you raise a great point Barbara. We are a mixture of considerably more than can ever be determined on a test.
Yes, I agree. They were always superficially right but never touched the real me. Hugs, Barbara
I thought of Taipei, Taiwan – a city that I really love… 🙂
I think the fast food that Laurie refers to is likely named after that city or area in Taiwan. It is a type of fast food we buy here in North America and plays on the words.
