|According to a 1916 Japanese medical report, blood-type was found to be an influence on one's personality. It determined that Type-A blood reflected a mild, intellectual personality while a B-Type was typical of an aggressive, noisy persona. AB was sensitive and diplomatic. O belonged to the emotional and passionate. Although personality characteristics determined by blood-type has little more scientific basis than astrological charts, Japanese superstition still places a heavy weight on blood-type as a signifier of character.|
