There is an ongoing online debate about the secrets of our blood types and our origins. It seems that our blood types can tell a lot more about who we are than what we thought.
One of the first questions I’ve been ask when meeting people in Korea is “what’s your blood type?” This has somewhat puzzled me because initially I thought it might be for medical reasons, you know, in case you get into an accident.. but then some of my students also asked me the same thing. It wasn’t until 3 months later that I discovered that knowing your blood type is the Korean equivalent of the horoscope.
Type A – The Farmer
Accordingly Type A is a good type to have. Its means that you are earnest and sensible. You are also very patient and reserved.You are responsible and that makes you a good worker. Other positive traits include conscientiousness, trustworthiness, and sensitivity. You are also seen as a perfectionist that pay attention to their work
Bad traits include being over-earnest.As a Type A you are capable of attaining a leadership positions but often the amount of tension that goes along with leadership positions will discouraging because you are such a worry-wort. Furthermore because this type is so reserved you often come across as shy or uptight.
Best workouts: Intense exercise increases your levels of the stress hormone cortisol and leads to muscle fatigue and stiffness. You do best by opting for calming activities that help you focus and protect your joints, like Pilates, yoga, Tai Chi, and isometric exercises.
Type B – The Hunter

Bad Critical, indecisive, forgetful, irresponsible, “split personality”,Aloof, critical, indecisive and unforgiving.
Best workouts: You tend to get muscle and joint stiffness from high-power cardio sessions, so you’ll be more apt to stick with gentle exercise, like walking, hiking, golf, or dance. However, you also tend to internalise anger, so yoga and Tai Chi can be helpful for keeping your mood level, and your muscles and joints limber.
Type O – The Warrior
Good: Confident, self-determined, optimistic, strong-willed, intuitive,Ambitious, athletic, robust and self-confident. Natural leaders, self reliant and daring
Bad :Self-centred, cold, doubtful, unpredictable, “workaholic”, unreliable, arrogant, vain, insensitive and ruthless
Best workouts: You tend to be strong and athletic—gotta love those powerful arms and legs—and, because you’re no longer chasing your meals, crave high-intensity workouts like interval training, running, and plyometrics. You use exercise as an emotional outlet, and need it more than other blood type to fight stress and anxiety and boost your mood.
I tried to get as much information on the topic. For me some of it was really true, but not all of the traits are 100% accurate.
