In the $1950$s, two heart specialists, whose names were Meyer Friedman and Ray Rosenman, began studying the behavior patterns of heart-disease patients. The doctors' research led them to coin the term *Type A personality*, which they described as aggressive, competitive, tense, and impatient. The doctors then used the term *Type B* for people who have relaxed, patient, and easygoing personalities. As a result of this research, many doctors and patients now believe a Type A person is more likely to have a heart attack than a Type B person. While recent studies clarify that many Type A traits such as aggressiveness and competitiveness do not play a role in heart attacks, one trait-chronic hostility-apparently does. One possible explanation for this is that feelings of hostility make the heart beat faster and raise blood pressure. Still under investigation is whether people with hostile attitudes also tend to follow poor health practices.

Can an optimistic, hopeful personality help you stay healthy? Depending on whom you ask. Research into the possible relationship between personality and disease has yielded some results, but they are contradictory. No studies have shown that optimistic, hopeful people are less likely to develop cancer than other people, but some studies do suggest that cancer patients who are optimistic and hopeful have a better chance of recovery. If that is true, perhaps personality has a direct effect on the body's ability to recover.
