There have only been two times in my life when I’ve had blood drawn: 32 years ago when Len and I got married (it was a requirement back in the day), and this past November. Suffice it to say that both occasions were disastrous:
- The first time involved a Navy corpsman breaking the needle in my arm.
- The most recent time involved five tries between one medical assistant, one nurse, and one physician who’d all said, “No worries Laurie, you’ve got big, fat, juicy veins!”
Frustrated, I got online and ordered the book “Eat Right For Your Type” by Dr. Peter D’Adamo and a blood-typing kit. Upon arrival we read the instructions and within a matter of five minutes—no pain, no muss, no fuss—we learned that I’m an A+ blood type.
In addition to a pretty cool read about eating for your blood type, the book presents a multitude of other thoughts, including the correlation between blood type and personality type:
In Japan, blood type has long been associated with personality type. In fact, you might well be asked your blood type on a job interview!
Blood Type A personalities tend to be sensitive to the needs of others, good listeners, detail oriented, analytical, creative, and inventive.
Blood Type B personalities tend to be subjective, easygoing, creative, original, and flexible.
Blood Type AB personalities tend to be emotional, passionate, friendly, trusting, and empathetic.
Blood Type O Personalities tend to be responsible, decisive, organized, objective, rule-conscious, and practical.
What’s your blood type?
