Do you know what blood type you are? なに型ですか？
I wonder how long you will be in Japan before someone asks you this question for the first time?!
Someone asked me yestrday and instead of answering straight away I asked them what blood type they thought I am. She explained the traits of each blood type to me and concluded that I was most like type O...she was right!
My friend asked me what the best best qualities were for each blood type. We looked up the different types my friend told me that type A are probably the best teachers, type B the most common in company bosses, type AB should be actors and type O should be aid workers!!
So here is the list of blood types and personalities, do you think it describes you?
Blood type A （A型）
Well, these are great traits however type A's are over cautious so sometimes they do not take action!
Blood type B （B型）
Active, free thinking
Being an active type is again a good trait for anyone but B types are traditionally thought of as selfish and irresponsible!
Blood type O （O型）
Optimism is something never to be underestimated, but type O's can be vain and rude...oh dear not good!
Blood type AB （AB型）
Creativity is a great trait to have however AB's can be very critical of others and at other times indecisive...!
So what do you think? Does your blood type affect your personality? What blood type are you?
Lastly here is a link to a BBC news article I read the other day which suggests that "blood type discrimination" does exist! click here
By the way what blood type do you think the staff are.....?!
