Blood Type Personality: A, B, O, AB?

Updated on May 24, 2012

Blood Type Personalities: A, B, O, AB?

Your blood type can tell more than if you’re really your parent’s child or in emergencies. If you go to Japan, they believe that your blood type can say things about your personality. Created in the 1930’s by Furukawa Takeji, it still reigns popular. When stars and celebrities introduce themselves, they often include their blood types and magazines often have predictions based on blood type. There are even blood type certain foods, diets, etc. Most Japanese know their blood type. In fact, it’s odd there if you don’t know your blood type.

Here is a basic overview of the blood type personalities;

Blood type A:

They are perfectionist. They can be withdrawn and shy around people, but they are very responsible and cooperative. If given a task they will do it, often by themselves. They appear to have a calm front, but often will be stressed and self-conscious on the inside. However, despite those nerves, they can be depended on to be trustable and honest.

Blood type B:

They are the pratical ones. They tend to be individualist going about their ideas and their rules. To add to that, they stick to their goals and focus their attention until it’s finished. However this may come out to others as being selfish and irresponsible.

Blood type O:

The social butterflies of the blood groups, they are self-confident and tend to be the center of attention. They are optinmistic and tend to be the leaders and like to take control. This is viewed as the “best” blood type. With goals, they can always get started, but having trouble continuing them to completion. Also they may be insensitive and arrogant.

Blood type AB:

They are considered the worst blood type to have since they are hard to predict. They have mixed traits of both A and B and can have characteristics of both at the same time. They are considered as potential hazards in their unpredicability. They don’t like to fit in a certain mold, sometime purposely breaking out.

So does your type match you?

Blood types are used in some Asian Countries when asked on job applications and when matchmaking. The blood type personality idea is most popular with women from their 20’s to 30’s. An introduction can often be asked "What's your blood type?" just as an icebreaker.

On the negative side, these blood type personalities can be used as a type of racism, judging someone’s personality based on one fact or ranking on whose better or worse based on blood type.

It is more accepted in Japan since the population is more even dispersed in each blood type, unlike in America where most of the population is type O. But don’t let that fact not let you take this in some consideration. You never know. Next time try asking friends and family and see if they match their blood type personality. You might be surprised.

      It matches my personality somewhat. I,m AB- and I love it because I follow the blood type diet. I live on homemade sweets without corn syrup, pizza, ice cream and I lost 15lbs. In 1 year.

      Blood type is inherited, you have 2 sets of DNA instructions one each from your parents and each is a mix of what your parents have. if you inherit the gene that produces A antigens from either parent you will have A or AB blood. You will have inherited other 'family' characteristics and some of these could be traced back to when the A gene was lost through mutation, so there will be "associated" genetic variations with blood type but not guaranteed ones and not caused by the blood type. We all carry a similar number of mutations just try to marry someone with different ones so your kids have one ok gene where you have given them a broken one, hence the issues with intermarrying.

      My ex-husband is an AB blood type and this fits him perfectly. He is the worst person I have ever met. He is duplicitous and a cheater and now that I know about his very rare AB- blood type I wonder if this has anything to do with it. Apparently AB's also have a lower temperature on average and he was always freezing. Makes a lot of sense to me now. I feel like I mated with an alien to be honest.

      I'd be privileged if I find an exceptional case, which I still don't so far.

      Anyway, in spite of such a negative description, I never got a problem making friends with a type AB. In fact, my best friend's blood type is AB, as well as the other one which is not that close to me. Only one thing I've noticed in common, they are quite talkative and somewhat sociable, but not as much as the type O's.

      Hmmm, I was a little disappointed when I read about mine: AB. "Considered the worst to have?" Maybe in a country where everybody must walk in line at all times and indidualism is seen as subversive?

      Can't say I fit the description ;).

      This test is about as accurate as astrology, in other words BS.

      I don't know my blood type, but if you can base your blood group off of personality, I would be an A.
