The poem for your blood type – Type A –
Japanese people are obsessed with the blood types. People check daily fortunetelling by the blood type just like the Westerners check horoscopes. As well as the star signs, Japanese people see the characteristic of the person by his/her blood type. You can also check the compatibility of the couple.
When people meet for the first time, they would ask your blood type and immediately they would know more or less about you, or at least they could get an idea.
The first day of my high school life, at the lunch table, one of the girls began, "So, what is your blood type?". It must have been 11 or 12 girls. As we could guess, majority was type A (the most common blood type in Japan). Then two type O and one type AB. When I said I was type B, a girl shouted from the other side of the table, "I hate type B people!". See? Just like in Europe, people would say that they don´t like a certain star sign because of their characteristics. The blood types work exactly the same way.
In Japan, the blood type A is the majority (39.8%), then follows type O (29.9%), type B (19.9%) and type AB (9.9%). In general, type AB is less common around the world, so it´s not surprising by this result.
By the way, in the US, 45% is type O and in the UK, 40% of people are type A. Now jump to India, 40% of the population is type B. Can you see the characteristic of the country?
What you mean "the characteristic of the blood types"? You may think. Let me explain about type A for now.
Our ancestors, Homo Sapience had only one blood type, which was type O. After humans started agricultural farming, type A began to appear. So you can also think type A people are farmer type.
- Think anything deeply
- It´s very scary once they get angry
Usually, blood type A is believed to be a good team worker and a responsible person. This is the character many companies look for as an employee. It´s true that type A people tend to worry about others and therefore, they are considered to be kind. Although some say that type A people force themselves to be nice and keep everything inside. That´s why the explosion comes after holding the emotion for a while.
A friend of my mum is a let´s say, "typical" type A person. She wants everyone to be happy and puts lots of effort to make everything works. If something doesn´t work, she´ll be very disappointed like "orz" and gets nervous, "Oh, what have I done. I´m really stupid. I´m really bad". My mum, who is type O, always laughs about it. "You are too type A!!" And she says, "I know, I can´t forgive myself because I´m type A. I don´t like it".
Her case is just funny. Her whinging is like Woody Allen´s. But maybe, many type A people are suffering from their own perfection and wanting the other to understand them.
Here, I´ve found online the poems for each blood type. The first one is the blood type A.
The life is just tiring.
I´m worried about other people´s opinion.
I´m not confident about myself.
I don´t like myself.
Be tolerant is my best skill.
I can put up with anything.
I get stressed.
80% of me is stress.
I can adapt myself to anyone.
I can even laugh at boring jokes.
I´m not good at tensed situations and pressure.
I can´t keep myself calm.
I can´t be a representative or a leader.
I get nervous and my mind gets blank.
I don´t trust my sensibility.
I have a good sense but always depend on other´s opinion.
I can´t just do it but think about it.
And I always think about failure.
If I can´t think, I can´t speak up.
To keep the good mood of the group, I can even lie.
When I´m having fun, I forget everything around me.
But in some part of my head is still thinking about the reality.
I hate being indecisive.
I always look for the solution.
Let me tell you now,
Think about the life seriously!
I don´t like being abused or hear bad things about me.
I can´t recover at least one month.
I don´t like sarcastic people.
It takes at least one week to recover.
Even the people I really hate,
I talk to them as if it´s normal.
Even the people I really hate,
I don´t want them to hate me.
I don´t like rules and problems.
I never hit anyone, even I hate them.
I´m a pacifist.
I want be in the peace.
I´m super nosy.
I care a lot about what others do.
If there is a queue, I join.
I queue with others.
My sleep is especially shallow.
Only a small sound can wake me up.
I can go to sleep easily.
But I wake up very easily.
I work for everyone with all my effort.
I work for anyone.
I like to see people are happy.
It makes me happy.
I´m pacifist but I don´t like apologising.
I always regret that I miss the chance to apologise.
And the things are getting worse.
I worry too much.
Most of the things are actually not so important.
But I can´t stop worrying.
Win and loss are very important for me.
I work hard to win.
I hate losing.
But I´d never be able to express that to anyone.
This society is for type A.
We create a lot of rules.
Then it´s type A who suffer from the rules we created…
It would be perfect if there were only type A people.
There would be no confrict.
We can just socialise with others superficially.
I will also be superficial.
Oi Oi, are you type B?
Please follow the rules.
It´s all about the rules in the world.
I want to live right.
I hate type B.
They are irresponsible and lazy.
But if I could re-born… I would choose type B…
Sounds like being the blood type A is stressful. If you are type A, do you agree with this poem?
