I remember something about blood type when I watched some Korean variety shows. They said B-type guys are usually the last thing in a girl’s list to be her boyfriend or partner for life or whatever. I found some Japanese people also talked about this blood type personalities sometimes ago.
I wonder what are they actually? So I looked up and found this interesting scoop talking about personal character based on blood type (Korean).
Blood Type A:
Positive Traits: Conservative, introverted, reserved, patient, punctual and inclined to be perfectionists.
Worst Traits: Obsessive, stubborn, self conscious and uptight.
Referred as ‘farmers’ in some descriptions, Type A’s are said to be considerate of others and loyal to a fault. They can also be secretive and reluctant to share their feelings. Apparently they don’t hold their liquor well, either.
Blood Type B:
Best Traits: Animal-loving, creative, flexible, individualistic, optimistic and passionate.
Worst Traits: Forgetful, irresponsible and self-centered.
Referred to as ‘hunters’, Type B’s have very independent natures and tend not to be concerned about what other people think of them. Although often described as shallow and lazy, they can be quite passionate about the things they hold dear. Patience is not their strong suit either.
Type B men have acquired a very negative reputation in Korea and are not considered by many to be good husband material. Often described as ‘players’, they are perceived as being selfish and mercurial, quick to anger and not terribly reliable. That said, their bad boy image makes them very attractive to women, but not for the long term. (Type B women do not share in this bad rep, for some unexplained reason).
Blood Type AB:
Best Traits: Cool, controlled, empathic, introverted and rational.
Worst Traits: Aloof, critical, indecisive and unforgiving.
Referred to as ‘humanists’, Type AB’s are said to be controlled more by their heads, than by their hearts. They are rational, good with money, but unpredictable. Although inclined to be distant, they prefer harmony and as such, work well with mediators. Some consider them two-faced, and therefore untrustworthy.
Blood Type O:
Best Traits: Ambitious, athletic, robust and self-confident.
Worst Traits: Arrogant, insensitive, ruthless and vain.
Referred to as ‘warriors’, Type O’s are viewed as natural leaders and are often, also, natural athletes. They tend to be outgoing, expressive and passionate, but can also bore others to death with their obsessive drive for success coupled with their absolute convictions that they are winners. This certainty that they will always win explains why they aren’t afraid to take risks or gamble. They have a strong physical presence and are unlikely to ever be overlooked.
Well, it’s a bit like Dr. Fadzilah Kamsah’s 25 years of personalities research by looking at the Months of birth. Like most blogs said, if in the west they will ask about your birth signs, but in Japan and Korea, they will ask you about your blood type. Plus, if you realize most Japanese and Korean include their blood type in their profile – like actors, actresses, idols (as what they called them), even Anime characters, manga writers and so forth.
I’m sure this type of characterization cannot be 100% correct, but it may be a considerable truth depending on a person. And maybe some of blood type O personalities have in blood type B person. So it goes to other blood type.
As for my blood type, the characteristics are ~80% true. Similarly with Dr. Fadzilah Kamsah’s research. What about yours then?
