Hello, I am currently studying about different personalities. Type A and type B specifically. Whilst studying I have hit an obstacle in Taylor's research (1995) which found people who score highly on cynical hostility have a higher heart rate, blood pressure and produce high levels of adrenaline.

What do cynical hostility mean?

And why would they produce more adrenaline? Doesn't the sympathomedullary pathway stop once the Hypothalamic adrenal axis activates for chronic stress, which would mean the adrenaline would stop being produced from fight and flight? There would only be higher levels of Cortisol? sooooo confused....
