What Does Your Blood Type Mean in Korea?

:

This week we have a new Q&A episode, so I thought I’d take a little time to talk about blood types in Korea.

Did you know that Koreans associate personalities with blood types? Depending on your blood type (A, B, O, and AB) you might be perceived by some Koreans as having a certain personality.

Type A Blood: Kind to others, but a perfectionist and introvert.

Type B Blood: Creative and passionate, but irresponsible, selfish, and lazy.

Type O Blood: Confident and expressive, but egotistical and risk takers.

Type AB Blood: Rational and calm, but critical of others and indecisive. Possibly a genius or a psychopath.

For a disclaimer, I don’t believe that blood types influence people’s personalities, but it is useful to know these when in Korea. It’s also fun to ask a Korean to guess your blood type, and see if they can correctly do it or not.
