I do believe there's truth to the statement.
Yes, there's many personalities out there. But, this categorization has little to do with that. It has to do with behavior. What you lean more towards. Healthy behavior and unhealthy behavior.
Your probably not going to care about personality, if someone exhibits the need to steal in front of you. But, your probably going to care that their exhibiting that behavior in front of you. That sort of behavior, I would consider to be a destroyer type.
Builders, walk the path of creation. It's healthy desires, traits, and actions. Could be made sense of like this. The desire to help others. Bring a smile to someone's face. Create things. Care about others. Try to better their own lives in a positive way. Try to better the lives of others. Plant crop, for harvest. May feel empathy and/or sympathy. Etc. It can be any or all of those things.
Destroyers, could be interpreted as unhealthy desires, traits, and actions. Such as the need to inflict harm to any of these examples: one's self, animals, and/or people. Trying to damage someone else's relationship. Vandalize objects and property. Embrace hate, over acceptance. Apathetic and irresponsible. Mislead people, in order to cheat them. Self destruction. And etc. It's not that the destroyers are necessarily evil, it's just the type of behavior they embrace. It's essentially destructive to the individual and others.
Those, are more the extremes on the scale of builder and destroyer. In my opinion, I barely scratched the surface on this topic. I think yin and yang can even apply to this. Because, builders can sometimes be destructive. Just as vice versa happens with destroyers. But, they revert back to the behavioral pattern they embrace most in life.
This method of categorizing is obviously not perfect. But, it helps identify potential threats and allies. Which is important.
People can change, but that's another topic entirely.
