Like Japan, Korea also has an obsession with blood typing. Celebrity profiles include blood types along with height, weight, and interests. Dating/matchmaking service questionnaires always include blood type as one of the first questions. Casual social interactions usually include the exchange of blood type information.
And my mother about had a cow when she discovered that J does not know his blood type, and has been bugging us to get it checked ASAP.
Blood typing has taken such a strong hold on society that they will prescribe diets, therapies, and even relationship advice based on your blood type! “Blood type horoscopes” are common features in media outlets, and employers may use blood type in hiring decisions.
I personally don’t take much stock in this theory for the same reasons I never check my horoscope. What’s more, my blood type personality (I am O+) couldn’t be further from the truth.
However, I thought it would be fun to include a basic blood type relationship compatibility chart below. Generally, O-types are considered the best catches. On the flip side, men are advised to stay away from AB-type women and women should avoid B-type men.
A is most compatible with A and AB.
B is most compatible with B and AB.
AB is most compatible with AB, B, A, and O.
O is most compatible with O and AB.
Have you heard of the Japanese theory of blood typing? Do you believe it holds any grain of truth?
