    O+

    I wish I could donate blood,I would do it, but I cant- they wont let me because Im too thin

    This is interesting though. My pen pal from Sapporo just asked my blood type in a letter, it was quite surprising...but now I know the reason ;)
    Thank you Elisabeth for the link about the personality types. Totally new thing for me,and interesting.

    Rofl! I have been asked this question in excess of 10 times so far in Japan. I just answer with "I don't know" and get the immediate response of either a hideous laugh or " eh why ?"
    I suppose I just can't see the importance of knowing.

    I just found a link that tells what kind of characteristics supposedly go with each blood type. Just thought I would add it here.

    i don't know and i'm proud of it! god knows how many japanese people have asked me my blood type, or how many friendship forms i fill out that have a space for it. i've even had people ask me "what happens if you are in an accident and they need to give you blood?" ridiculous. i'd just take the pain like zoro from 'one piece' and be healed in time for the next volume, ready for the next sword fight...

    besides, by not knowing i can cliam to be more mysterious:P

    I've known since my childhood that I was O+, not O-. That's very important for blood compatibility, as O+ are universal donors, but O- have the hardest time of all blood groups to find a compatible type.

    Actually it's the other way around ~ If you have a positive blood type, you have a Rh antigen present. If you are negative you do not have it. O- blood is the universal donor, because it does not have any antigens. AB is the universal recipient and is about the rarest.

    Scary fact - if a pregnant woman has a negative blood type, and her baby has a positive type, the mother's blood cells will attack the blood of the baby. But the mother can get a vaccine early enough to prevent that.
    A similar thing can happen if you get the wrong type of blood transfusion.

    Anyway, sorry to get all medical and boring, but just thought I would explain it.
    And here is a short site about what the differences are in blood types and the Rh factor.

    A -

    They're some scientific evidence to back up the differences between blood types. Statistically, type A have a slightly elevated risk of cancer compared to the other types, type B have a higher risk of diseases of the nervous system, etc... Also different blood types have various degrees of resistance to viruses and bacteria. This is due to proteins called lectins that react differently with each blood type. The lectins are found in the food we eat and the germs in our environment.
    I don't know about the personality types, but if it affect your body it could affect your mind too.

    Here are some statistics found on a Japanese website. Interestingly, "A" is the most common in France, and a higher percentage of French and white Americans are "A" than Japanese (46% and 40%, against 38%). Now you know what to tell your Japanese friends when they will affirm that Japanese are dominantly "A" and Westerners are mostly "O". "B" is dominant among Indians (41%), while "O" is dominant among Nigerians (44%) and, surprise (!), Chinese (46%). "B" is rarest among French and white American people.

    日本 - Japan  
    AB:9 A:38 B:22 O:31

    中国 - China 
    AB:6 A:23 B:25 O:46

    インド - India
    AB:9 A:21 B:41 O:29

    アメリカ白人 - Caucasian American
    AB:4 A:40 B:11 O:45

    フランス - France 
    AB:3 A:46 B:9 O:42

    ナイジェリア - Nigeria 
    AB:6 A:21 B:29 O:44

    Other statistics on a French website about French people confirm the ratio above :

    O+ 35,7%
    O- 6,3%
    A+ 37,4%
    A- 6,6%
    B+ 8,5%
    B- 1,5%
    AB+ 3,4%
    AB- 0,6%
