The Blood Type Personality Test - What It Says About You

What Your Blood Type Says About Your Personality

Do you read your horoscope each day? If your daily dose of Mystic Meg helps give you perspective on your day or enables you to work out your 'star sign' personality according to the conjunction of the planets, consider this - your blood type might just do the same...

Now, although it's never been scientifically proven, in Japan, it's widely believed that blood groups predict personality traits - from temperament to compatibility, to what kind of lover you are to what type of foods you should be eating.

Despite the theory being discredited many times, this influence still lingers on in Japanese culture (and beyond).

And why not? It's no sillier than believing your personality is in the hands of the solar planets, or that your sandwich choice or sleep position reveals all about what you're like as a person.

The idea first came about in the 1920's and is still publicly used today - who could forget Japan's minister Ryu Matsumoto blaming his blood type on his abrasive behaviour?

According to experts, such as Dr. Peter D'Adamo, author of Eat Right For Your Type, "Your blood is the key to unlocking the secrets to your biochemical individuality."

So, have a scroll through to see whether your blood type reveals anything about your personality...
