I should probably point out that I’m not claiming my “anti-hurry gene” is blood-type related. In fact, it seems quite blood-type unrelated, since my father (reportedly an O) had it, but my husband (a fellow A) does not.
For example, if I ask my husband to do some project for me, I’d better have all the details figured out before I ask, and then get out of his way, because Hurricane Hubby is about to blow through! To see him work, you might think he’s a super-O who scoffs at stress. But no, he’s a true-blue A, and getting the job out of the way as quickly as possible is simply his way of minimizing stress.
Whereas my worst stress comes from dealing with deadlines, you see, his comes from having an unpleasant project ahead. But we’re just alike in our desire to sidestep the stress as much as possible.
