You are a mountainbiker...relax and don't worry about the type.

However if you were looking for a bike (or parts) to buy in their categories you are easily a light freerider (although depending on your weight some xc parts will last)

I would ask first what kind of bike do you have? Then what type of riding do you do the most? Based on the limited information you gave I would say an aggressive XC rider or trail rider.
