Hello, I am Bella who introduce Korea to you!
Today, I want to talk about blood type belief that only believe in Korean and Japanese!
I’ve told you before.I have a boyfriend who is French, and i asks my boyfriend about his blood type and his said, “I don’t know.”I was shocked! How can you not know your own blood type?’
I’m sure that if you ask a Korean, there won’t be 100 percent who can’t answer their own blood type!
Let me tell you why only Koreans and Japanese are so obsessed with blood types!
First of all, one can think of a tradition that values blood, or blood ties. Because blood types are inherited, I think they contain more than just information for transfusion.
The Eastern tradition of emphasizing modern human relations is also an important factor. Our emotional blood type, which is interested in the hometown, school of origin, and family environment of the first person, must be one of useful information.
Through relatively simple data such as blood type, it not only understands the other person but can also be used to solve the conversation.
Europeans generally have an overwhelming ratio of type A and type O, so there is little meaning in character classification by blood type, but Asians have an even ratio of four blood types, so it is meaningful to classify personality by blood type. There is also a one-third to one-fourth chance that it will be correct even if it is said properly.
So there seems to be a lot of credibility compared to saju(fortune)
When others believe everything, my personality changes.
How many people can deny “no” when they hear that “you look outgoing and sociable, but you actually have a timid side”?
And is there anyone who would give a firm answer to the assessment that ‘you look cold but you’re really kind enough to refuse someone’s request?
The tendency to accept the general personality traits that apply to anyone in their own words is called “barnum effect.”
It is the case that fortunetellers believe that what they say is what they report through their hearts.
Even though people talk ambiguously about their personality by blood type, it is also because of the “Venum effect” that people mistake for explaining their own characteristics.
Regardless of his blood type, about 70 percent of the survey respondents answered that he or she had a personality. He mistook it for describing his unique personality, even though it applies to everyone.
If society as a whole believes in personality classifications by blood type, like Korea and Japan, its personality changes in that direction.
This is because the “self-fulfilling prophecy” effect occurs.
In May, a teacher at a high school in Gangseo-gu, Seoul, told a student that he was a timid type A and that he was not good at making presentations in front of others.
The social perception of type A has changed the personality of one impressionable student.
Sakamoto, an instructor at Japan’s Ochanomizu Women’s University, examined whether the relationship between blood type and personality changes with age.
However, when a person of type B learns the characteristics of type B personality, he or she gradually becomes like type B as he gets older.
This is the result of a social crisis that believes in personality classification by blood type.
Blood type is standard for spouse selection
Professor Masao Omura, a Japanese psychologist, gave a lecture on blood type and personality during a first-year psychology course at a women’s university.
And at the end of the semester, 168 out of 344 students answered, “I still believe in personality classifications by blood type.”
As such, the personality classification by blood type has a strong power. Dr. Takada, an honorary professor at the Hamamatsu School of Medicine in Japan, said that no matter how hard evidence is presented, belief in blood types does not die down easily.
Among unmarried women applying for matchmaking with the Korean marriage information company Duo, 20 to 30 percent ask for the exclusion of certain blood types. They are mainly type B, but there are some women who avoid type AB.
However, there is no clue to the relationship between blood type and personality. There is no problem if it is used as a material for simply fun and opening a conversation with the other person.
But it is a dangerous idea to determine a person’s charact
Another similar science of blood type, following race, appearance and gender, is promoting prejudice in our society.
Did you know that Japan has more faith in blood type than Korea?
Many people in the West do not know because they are not very interested in their blood type.
But Koreans and Japanese think personality is very related depending on blood type!
As I explained above, he also takes great care of his blood type when choosing his or her spouse!
I think it’s a really fun culture!
How can you define a person only as a type 4? It’s so simple, isn’t it?
If you come to Korea, Koreans will surely ask you about your blood type! Know your blood type! Ha ha ha.
