Do you know that there is a theory that says our personality can be determined by blood type? If you want to know more about it, read this article until the end, P-assengers!

As we know, there are four types of blood types, namely A, B, AB, and O. In Japan, these four blood types are used as a reference in determining a person’s personality. This categorization is known as Ketsueki-Gata. This theory became popular in Japan in the 1930s, after a psychologist named Takeji Furukawa made a study claiming blood type can affect human personality.

This belief is popular in Japan. According to a 2008 survey, 75 percent of Japanese people believed it. In fact, because of its popularity, blood type in Japan is often used as a reference in job acceptance, relationships, and life.

Even so, the results of this study are still considered fictitious and require further research. Citing research conducted in the May 2003 issue of the Journal Science Direct, the researchers said there was no relationship between blood type and personality. Then, many studies want to prove it, such as research in Taiwan in 2005 and research in Japan in 2014, which have similar results.

Although there were researches that is shown above, there’s still some interesting facts about these blood type. People with type A are in more risk of experiencing stress. Meanwhile, those who have type B are very rare. They are in more risk of getting cancer. Then, AB type are the universal recipient, meanwhile O type are universal donor. 

To conclude, blood types do not determine one’s personality. But they do have their own facts. That’s all about today’s article, thanks for reading. See you, P-asssengers!
