Each type has its own strengths and weaknesses, and according to Blaylock-Solar, type B’s thrive when they can be engaged with other people, collaborating, and helping to keep the peace. Their strength is in their even temper, their patience, and their ability to adapt to different situations.
“I would say a big strength is that they’re great relationship builders,” she says, adding that they’re also creative and can come up with great ideas.
However, depending on who you ask, some might say certain type B traits can be weaknesses. While they are laid back and low stress, they can procrastinate, place others’ needs before their own, and may even come off as lazy.
“The challenges and areas for growth could be the procrastination—and also making sure that they’re prioritizing their own needs, as opposed to only working for fulfilling the needs of others,” Blaylock-Solar says, adding, “If they are constantly putting the needs of others in front of their own, then their needs may not be met, so they definitely have to find a balance with that.”
