I was with the Korean FAM group for lunch yesterday. Ms Park, the Editor, asked me if I know their culture about the blood type which I do. She asked me my blood type and when I told them I am in the A blood group, they were like, “We know. We can tell”.
So I did a little research on the net.
Type O blood types are defined generally as warriors. This is perhaps because Type O is the oldest of all the blood types. These people are highly motivated, leaders of people. They aren’t afraid to gamble because they are confident they can pull it off. They have a strong physical presence and are generally good at sport. However because they are leaders they can often be seen as status seeking, and obsessive in their quest for success. This obsession can also make them seem boring to other people.
Type O's are outgoing, and very social. They are initiators, although they don't always finish what they start. Creative and popular, they love to be the center of attention and appear very self confident.
Type A blood types are defined as farmers. They are considered conventional in all that they do. They are considerate to other people, and find it hard to tell lies. Loyalty towards friends and co-workers is another trait. On the downside they can be secretive. This means they don’t often share their feelings, and can become insecure and pessimistic. Apparently, once they’ve had a few drinks they can turn into nasty pieces of work.
While outwardly calm, they have such high standards (perfectionists) that they tend to be balls of nerves on the inside. Type A's are the most artistic of the blood groups. They can be shy, are conscientious, trustworthy, and sensitive.
Type B blood types are defined as hunters. Contrary to Farmer types these people are non-conventional, and care little for other people’s opinions. This makes them thick-skinned. This doesn’t mean they are uncaring. Indeed, they are extremely passionate about things dear to them. The negative side to their personality is that they can seem shallow to other people, and lazy, because they might not do what other people request. If they don’t get their own way they can seem impatient.
Goal oriented and strong minded, type B's will start a task and continue it until completed, and completed well. Type B's are the individualists of the blood group categories and find their own way in life.
Type AB blood types are considered humanists. They are quite rare. They go with the head rather than the heart. They like accord among people, and therefore play a good role as a mediator within a group. They are also good with money. Unfortunately, with trying to please everyone, they can seem to be two faced.
Type AB's are the split personalities of the blood groups. They can be both outgoing and shy, confident and timid. While responsible, too much responsibility will cause a problem. They are trustworthy and like to help others.
I have people telling me the same thing about myself.
Sometimes I wonder if I am REALLY that nice.
Anyway, what’s your blood type?
