What blood type are you?

I recently remembered reading an old article about Korea/Japan and blood types being extremely important. I looked it over and found some blogs of japanese people (especially girls) talking about how blood type is still a very big fad and how many things still revolve around it.

And here's a wikipedia one-this one goes into some scientific stuff though.

Interestingly enough, the RH factor has no effect on the fad, sounds weird to me.

So what blood type are you?

Not surprised that rh isn't mentioned much, as so few Japanese actually have it.

No mention I could find of whether homozygous or heterozygous A's and B's exhibit different levels of "A" or "B"-ness. Might be an interesting (though worthless) study for someone down the road...

Not to prove anyone's point, but my blood type should be easy to guess from the little charts.

Fill in "I have a blood type?" if you don't know what your's is.

@antok-are you sure japanese don't have an RH factor? I thought everyone did. RH is the positive and negative that goes along with blood types. Did you mean that very few japanese have an RH of negative?

Ah, clarification. I meant that such a low percentage of the population has a differing rh that it wasn't considered a significant factor.

@ephesus, you mean "My Boyfriend is Type B", don't you?

Yeah, less than 1% are negative. I'm downloading "my boyfriend is a type B" now. Just for a good laugh.

Enjoy it. I'll just say that sometimes reported "real life" couples make good movies, and sometimes I think of everything that Ben Affleck and J-Lo did together and leave it at that...

I'm B+

I've read in general most common to rarest: O, A, B, AB and then probably some strange ones out there lol...

anything negative is rare. An O- would probably be rarer than a B+. Only 15% of the world is negative. So AB- would be the rarest.

The whole Japanese blood type theory is somewhat amusingly shot down when a foreigner is asked their blood type and infact has a personality that totally defies the theory. Of course then I suppose it could be argued that it is only relevant to Japanese. It is also interesting how many paper forms will ask your blood type even when the application in question could not have any less relation to blood, let alone blood type.
