Thought this tidbit was quite interesting as I have a relatively rare blood type, A-. I did not know Japan used blood types in such a way, either...READ ON!

Can Blood Type Determine Your Personality?

Quote:
I have a rare blood type—AB+, which only 4 percent of the U.S. has—and secretly, I always thought it made me kind of special, even though I had no basis for that belief. But in Japan, blood type is used to determine one’s personality and temperament. Like astrology, the scientific community often dismisses blood type as an indicator of personality, but that doesn’t stop its popularity in Japanese women’s magazines, where blood type horoscopes are published. In Japanese video games, blood type is commonly a dimension in character creation. In fact, some Japanese might even be shocked if a foreigner didn’t know her blood type

I don't know if the Negative or Positive aspect makes a difference, but the A description doesn't fit me much at all. :?

From my experience, personality comes from experiences and the people we meet, freinds ,family ect....

In truth, everyone is "special".

Your blood type is simply that, blood type. In no way does it influence ones personality.

There have been children discovered that were raised by dogs. Now I have no idea what their blood types were, but their personalities were aggressive. Protect food and what not.

Seems to me that your experiences are much more prone to influence your personality.

Thats just my take on this.
