Japanese people believe that blood type is a way of analyzing personality, much like the western world believes in astrology. It is called ketsuekigata by the Japanese and they are well-known for using this knowledge in order to find the best partner.
PERSONALITY & BLOOD TYPE
Although this theory is not as popular in Japan as in the West, it is still very common. Ketsueki gata gained popularity when Tokeji Furukawa, a Japanese professor, published a paper suggesting each blood type represented a particular personality. This theory is based upon the ancient concept bodily humors (Furukawa 1930), which were believed influence one’s traits.
AB Blood Type Personality
AB blood types are generally charming and easy to get along with. They are often called “the rarest of all blood types.” However, they can also have a dual personality which makes it difficult to get to know their true personalities.
A Blood Type Personality
A blood type people are more cautious than the other types and take their time in making decisions. They are organized and can be very meticulous when it comes to their work.
They are known for setting goals and sticking with them, even when they seem impossible or unattainable. They can be stubborn and uncooperative at times, but they are loyal and hard-working.
O Blood Type Personality
Blood type O’s are outgoing and known for being strong, determined, tenacious and courageous. They can also be rude, ruthless, insensitive, cold, arrogant, and self-centered.
Unfortunately, blood type Os also have a tendency to be very competitive and may be sore losers on occasion. This could be because they are so focused on their goals that other people are not always considered.
This can cause a lot of problems for them. It is especially difficult for them to apologize when they have done something wrong.
O’s can be loyal to their loved ones, and they may be passionate about certain things. O’s can be creative and have the ability to think outside of the box.
They are also very good at adapting to new situations and changes, making them ideal for leaders and those who are able to cope with change.
Despite the lack of scientific evidence, blood type personality theory is still very common in Japanese culture and is even a major topic of conversation. According to katsueki, 25% of a person’s personality and behavior is influenced by his or her blood type.
