my bloodtype is A+ but i have no idea what it says about my personality...

from my conversations with people living in singapore, most people of bloodtype B rarely wear specs (they have good eyesight) and it's harder for them to get drunk on alcohol (compared to those of bloodtype A).

but i don't think those are scientifically proven. i'd be surprised if there was a scientific explanation for them.

heh.. my answer for these sort of questions is usually the same when people asks me. you can make it true or untrue. it's really nothing about your blood type or your horoscope or your "anything-you-can-think-of". =D if you want it, you can make it happen.

i think most people here are easy going because i think learning a new language usually means you have to begin speaking it to another person in that language. gotta be easy going to accomplish that don't you think?

I'm AB+, but the only things that really says about me is that I'm a universal blood recipient, and a universal blood syrum donor.

Blood type says just as much about a person's personality as what star they were born under. (In other words, absolutely nothing)

when you say "universal recipient", you mean that AB+ can receive all types of blood? i never knew much about blood types...

so the other end of the spectrum, for O+ would mean that they can only receive O+ types?

or did i get it the other way around?

Exactly. Type O is normally called universal donor, as their red blood cells don't have certain protiens on them that will cause them to be rejected.

Statistically, positive blood types are more common than negative. A person with positive blood can recieve negative blood. That is referencing a different protien on the surface of the red blood cells. There is a fairly detailed article on wikipedia that explains this.

Marky - Before you went to Japan, the ARC never took your blood?

just for educational purposes, that's "Aichmophobia". :o

my girlfriend suffers from aichmophobia too, but not too bad. she could still go for jabs. she just can't stand watching video clips where needles go into other people's arms.

Thank you for the blood chart! Now I know what I am but I don't agree with the worst traits.
