Evening, dudes!

The "Is the Dude an Introvert?" thread got me thinking quite a bit about Dudeism's significance, not just as a philosophy, but in a broader social context.  Now I'm wondering if there might be a correlation between those who embrace a Dudeist lifestyle and those who exhibit Type-B personality traits. . . .


In partial response to this question, my Meyers-Briggs score came out ISTJ:

Introverted   Sensing   Thinking   Judging
Strength of the preferences %
56   12   50   56

Qualitative analysis of your type formula

 You are:

    * moderately expressed introvert
    * slightly expressed sensing personality
    * moderately expressed thinking personality
    * moderately expressed judging personality

Except for the moderate introversion, mine is not what many of us think of as a dudely personality. However, I feel that my interest in dudeism stems from a need for it, not because it's the way I am naturally or the way I operate as a result of mal/adaptation. I'm guessing that there are others who are here because they feel a need for more dudeliness as well.

As far as the question of whether dudeists tend to have Type B personality traits, I found this:

"Type A / Type B theory c.1955 was introduced cardiologists Meyer Friedman and Mike Jordan. It's a theory of two groups, similar to, but not mappable to, Extrovert/Introvert. It has very limited scope and precision. It not used in newer personality theories and has been abandoned by the medical profession as well."

If type B is thought of as similar to introvert, then perhaps a case could be made for dudeists tending to be type B, but I guess I don't see where being an introvert is the same in any great way as being laid back. This may be part of what this website is referring to when it says the A/B theory was limited in scope and precision.

Well..aah...thanks dude, but this is way above my pay grade! ???
All I know is some dudes are out going and like big crowds and to meet people and others...well...other dudes prefer to be by themselves or only with a few friends.
Some dudes can get up in front of a room full of strangers and put on a show; while other dudes prefer to sit in the back and keep to themselves...or not be there at all.
I'm the "other" type of dude.

Yep, I'm the other type, too, except I'm ok with putting on a show if I have a script to follow, can clown around, and don't have to interact with the audience while I do it. There's some kind of wall they talk about in theatre--guess it's that.
