What is your blood type?

What is your blood type? That's a big deal in Korea. Why? Your personality can be inferred from your blood type at once. lyh809 is one of the most serious bloggers with cartoons. Look at why blood type A is timid, how each blood type reacts to sadness, seven behaviors you should not do toward blood type B, and personalities associated with each blood type[ko].

  • In my Korean class, my teacher was SHOCKED that so few of us (myself included) new our bloodtypes. She also told us a rather disgusting outline of how your bloodtype determines your bathroom habits. Believe me, you don’t want to know!

    Yes, I was just wondering about this blood type business. I myself have been typed “B” postive. What I don’t really understand is this, Type “B” Blood is consider an Eastern Asian Blood Type, however, it is found in high amounts in the Jewsih people as well as African. I can’t figure how this can be, if its predoniamtely an Eastern blood. I am caucasusian. hence, white & asian? Please help me figure this problem out? Thank you,
    Catie

      Please comment on how you justify your statement that B+ is a common blood type
      found in the Jewish population. I am not
      challenging you that this statement is not
      a FACT, I do not know that. However, I
      am very interested in the information that
      might give more creditability to that subject.

    Well interesting post so far, I too have B+ blood type and have Ukranian hertiage. When I heard that this blood type is most commonly found in Asian It had me thinking, perhaps a glimpse of my asian ancestry? Funny how my aunt actually looks quite asian! We just never know I guess unless it is to test our DNA.
