The poem for your blood type – Type A –

April 9, 2015 Juju Kurihara 1 Comment

fortunetellingJapanese 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. 

 

chartIn 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.

 

type aThe typical type A people are :

  • Kind
  • Sensitive
  • Attentative
  • Think anything deeply
  • Indecisive
  • 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.

とにかく人生疲れます。

人目がとにかく気になります。

自分に自信がもてません。

自分が好きでもありません。

 

我慢は得意中の得意です。

どんなことでも我慢します。

ストレスかなり溜まります。

身体の8割ストレスです。

 

周りに合わせるのも得意です。

つまらないギャグにも笑えます。

 

緊張プレッシャーには弱いです。

平常心が保てません。

代表、リーダー苦手です。

緊張で頭真っ白です。

 

自分の感性信じません。

勘がいいのに人の意見に傾きます。

実行よりも考えます。

悪い結果を考えます。

 

考えないと発言しません。

ウソついてまでその場の雰囲気壊しません。

楽しい時には無我夢中。

しかし何処かで現実考えてます。

 

優柔不断は大嫌い。

とにかく結論求めます。

逆に言うけどオマイラは、

ほんとに人生考えろ!

 

罵声、悪口苦手です。

一ヶ月は立ち直れません。

嫌味言うやつも嫌いです。

一週間は立ち直れません。

 

凄く嫌いなやつだけど

普通に会話を致します。

凄く嫌いなやつだけど

嫌われたくはありません。

 

原則いざこざキライです。

嫌いなやつでも叩きません。

とにかく平和主義者です。

自分だけは平和に生きたい。

 

野次馬根性旺盛です。

他人の事が気になります。

行列気になり並びます。

他人と一緒に並びます。

 

眠りは特に浅いです。

少しの物音でも目がさめます。

寝つきは悪くありません。

しかしすぐに目がさめます。

 

人にとことん尽くします。

どんな人にも尽くします。

喜ぶ顔が大好きです。

幸せ感じてしまいます。

 

平和主義者なのに謝ることは苦手です。

誤り損ねて大後悔。

どんどんドツボにはまります。

 

とことん気にすることあれど

大概どうでもいいことです。

それでもとにかく気になります。

ストレスいっぱい溜まります。

 

勝ち負け特にこだわります。

勝つため努力いたします。

とにかく負けず嫌いです。

表にソレは出しません。

 

この世はAの社会です。

いろんなルールあみだします。

あみだしたルールに苦しむのもまたA型です。。

 

Aだけなら無敵です。

なんのいざこざ起きません。

上辺だけで付き合えます。

こちらも上辺しか見せません。

 

oioiオマイラBですか?

規則守ってくださいな。

世の中すべてルールです。

規則正しく生きたいです。

 

とにかくBは嫌いです。

いい加減でだらしない。

 

でも生まれ変われると言うならばBを選ぶかも…。

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.

I´m stressed.

 

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?

    Well I was surprised! It was very accurate. I hate my blood type because we are meant to be vegetarians and it eliminates my favourite vegetables and fruit.
