It may sound strange at first to think that your blood type can help to form the person you are but there is evidence that blood type can help to influence your personality and that there are shared traits among people of the same blood type.
Type O blood type is the first type of ancestral blood line. The people that have this type of blood all share in the following traits:
- Strong leadership skills
- Strong focus abilities
- A large amount of natural energy
In Japanese culture blood typing and personality typing go hand in hand. Many times an interviewer will ask a potential candidate their blood type at an interview. Since this is an accepted part of Japanese culture there has been quite a large bit of data collected that supports the idea that certain blood types display different personality traits.
In Japan type o negative blood types were asked to describe their best qualities, a large amount of people surveyed responded that their good qualities included:
- Being responsible
- Strong drive to achieve
Self-perception among Type O people is much more keen than that among other blood types. It was also determined through years of collecting data that Type O people have a higher standard that they hold themselves to than the standard of all the other blood types combined.
On The Flip Side
People with Type O blood type also can be prone to not so great personality traits like angry outbursts, hyperactivity and even temper tantrums. Experts say that these not so desirable personality traits come from the ancestral need for the flight or fight response to survive in what was a very dangerous world.
The same way the “hunter gather” instinct that is buried deep within this blood type works to make Type O personalities more diligent than other blood types; it also works to make them more diligent in paying attention to other people’s behavior and may cause them undue amounts of stress.
These overstressed personalities can lead to self-medicating with alcohol or drugs. To avoid the pitfalls of Type O personality a healthy diet, exercise and hobbies that require time and effort can help to alleviate the constant annoyance with others.
A healthy diet is very important to people with this blood type not only in their personality but also for their good health. People with O negative type blood are more prone to ulcers.
