Sanj ;
  regarding your question about our guess on my girlfriend's husband being an O.  I'm not sure I can really answer that totally.  Different health issues I guess,  and he loves whole milk but then gets severely congested after.  He doesn't drink it regularly, but now drinks soy milk which causes similar reactions, though he doesn't see it.  His wife factors in certain personality traits.  I think what really got me thinking that way is his bow legs and I figured he must be a hunter and if that's the case he has to be an O.  Lots of other little things but can't really put my finger on them.  

   If he would just  let us do the blood typing kit on him we'd know for sure.

Actually B's can be prone to autoimmune problems when out of balance and have bad allergies.  Prob not the anaphalyctic strength of hunter allergies but still pretty bad.

Once certain genotype characteristics have been observed, sheer instinct may narrow down a likely blood type. I find myself doing this all the time for amusement. Personality is a factor, too-- less reliable as a sorting tool, but useful where the tipping-points matter. My record for guessing friends and acquaintances has been fairly good. Wouldn't know about strangers, obviously, but certain people are clear GT archetypes pointing towards a likely BT.

Germane to this thread is a discussion of how we view the gains of such knowledge as the science of blood typing becomes more relevant to more people. Our deepest instinctual senses do differentiate "same" from "not same", and we bias ourselves both consciously and unconsciously all the time. Some bias we acknowledge, some we don't. We may face a future confronted with the implications of an unwanted societal schism leading to a more insular cultural dynamic. Education in progressive nonviolence would be well advised.

I am very curious about people's blood types.

A few times I guessed acquaintances' blood type successfully. It was according to the type of personality combined with perosnal charactersitics as per Dr. D's descriptions. Also according to a person's look - but this is already intuitional.

Few cases were so obvious, that I hit on the first score. One of them, a person I've known very well for many years, I dragged to the blood bank and had the director perform the test - he came out as I had been convinced: an AB. Another person, a B lady doctor, I guessed by her features and by her manners.

With many O's I have a strong gut feeling- I judge by the temperament: They are 'exactly' like myself.

The great BUT is with blood type A. My father was an A. In childhood I felt very very close to him like to nobody else in the world, I clang to him and identified with him. The result is that too many times I am mistaken and confuse A for O. Here is the place where I am doing a work to mentally discern between 'Self' and 'Dad'. It should be quite easy, as the differences are tremendous.

While discussing diets I often ask people what is their blood type. Of course I can do this only if I reach a point with them when it feels safe and I don't fear crossing their boundaries. This way I also broaden my 'model gallery'.

I am curious as to how anyone can tell/guess a person's blood type by their "looks"?

When I started the BTD and came to this forum..after reading many posts... I expected to be the "different" A positive teacher because I have dark hair, eyes and skin tone. Then I found out that many A teachers have either dark hair or eyes but I thought most were light haired with light eyes and skin.

I have O friends with very dark hair/skin/eyes and others with red/blonde hair and light skin and eyes. Some of these O's are tall and thin and others are short and stocky. They all have varying features, also.

So...how do looks play into this?

Yes, this is not accurate and sounds stupid. Instead of "looks" I should have used "facial expression" and "facial features". Sometimes you look at someone and you just know. Earlier this evening a taxi driver told me that once a lady passanger entered his taxi and immediately he had a hunch about her and was convinced that she was born at the same date as himself. He asked her and she almost fainted, and required to see his identity card. He showed it to her. She was born exactly on the same day, same year.

I don't get it. Are you saying he knew her blood type by looking at her?

It went like this: I had been remotely acquainted with this lady for a long time before I read ER4YT. She is a doctor in the hospital where I had been working since 1992, and I always liked her from a distance. At a certain moment - in 2006 or 2007 - I was discussing BTD with a couple of staff members at their office, and it suddenly occured to me that she must have been blood type B, somehow I was pretty sure about it. I asked her and she confirmed. So I wasn't just looking at her, but had also a former established image of her behaviour and an impression about her personality. This probably was a one-time lucky shot, but I also believe that my good attitude towards her contributed to the momentary clear sight and feeling of assuredness. I guess that a good eye yields good results.

I guessed that I'm an O because I still have to pluck up the courage to donate blood. Anyway, I'm very sure I'm right because I have mostly stuck to the O diet and now have strong nails for the first time in a long time.  Can I expect any other positive changes?

Also I have allergies/hay fever and had a stomach ulcer so it wasn't that difficult to guess.

I have guessed "O" blood types almost 100%. My guesses were based on addictions (food, alcohol, cigarettes, etc) and personality (very friendly, but with short tempers). I haven't been successful with other blood types, but I do think my youngest daughter is a "B" since she has suffered with eczema since she was very young. I have changed my diet and haven't had eczema for years, but my daughter refuses to change her diet. She says it should be illegal to stop eating chicken.

ToHimIPray,
Short tempers?  I'm an O and not like that at all.  My boys are both A's and have much shorter tempers than I have and their father is an AB and really had a short temper.

It has been really amusing to read all of these entries.  The person who is nearest and dearest to me - my husband of 32 years - is built more like an O, acts more like an O, used to eat more like an O, etc.  In fact, even though he was career military and knew for sure he was an A I made him take the D'Adamo blood test.  

The local fellow who teaches the ER classes here and is quite good at "guessing" blood types because of long experience remarked that my hubby is the most untypical A he's ever seen!  

So much for guessing blood types, eh?

Oh yeah - both he and I are nonnies also, but I had the autoimmune diseases and other nonnie problems whereas he didn't.    

......I DO realize that this is really a fun thread and hope the above didn't sound too serious..........

My niece had terrible eczema throughout her childhood.
She has type O blood.
