Quoted from Amazone I.
naming yourself a so called *hsp* .....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highly_sensitive_person
Quoted from text
a large body of research now suggests that sensory-processing sensitivity (SPS) is innate and found in about 15–20% of humans
This percentage certainly rings a bell!!!

As ABO system, psychological systems too may be multiple systems, i.e., maybe an INTP can be either a non-hsp or an hsp, as much as blood type A can be either a secretor or a non-secretor.

I agree with what Patty said above.  My boys are both A+ and are completely different.  My older son is very outgoing and has the risk taking characteristics of someone with ADD. My younger son is much more introspective.  They both have very sharp minds and senses of humor, like their dad who is an AB+.  I'm an O and will admit to being a too much of a people pleaser.  I'm very analytical.

Interesting topic....there are a multitude of factors.

It's really such a big subject. I think perception is nearly always biased and limited in scope. Blood type is only one layer of influence that the personality percolates through. Sex, race and genetics are all major factors, but so are indoctrinating influences like religion and culture, education, role models, and of course what and how we process our experiences. Our personal evolution.

I think of personality much in the same way that the light spectrum defines how we see things. To one another we appear to be more about what we reflect than what we absorb, but that's only true from the viewpoint of the observer.

I think it is interesting to consider how much blood types affect personality/behavior, and the O blood groups people I know tend to be very outgoing and the A's a range of introvert to mildly out going.  But of course as many of you say there are so many dynamics that can affect how our personality is reflected.
I have heard from a few Celiacs that they became much calmer once they were off gluten, and were told so by their family/spouse.
So I guess there are a range of factors that may come into play.

I agree this is fascinating but very generalized.
One thing Eric wrote hit a chord with me. I enjoy deep philosophical discussions on a variety of subjects (and haven't had many since college!) Sometimes I find it frustrating because my family and friends do not share this with me. My Mom and one close friend are the only other A types in my life; everyone else is an O!!!!

To Eric's point of associating certain behavior while eating "off diet", we're probably all prone under such conditions. I'll be the first to admit that in the 10 years or so prior to eating right for my type, I was becoming increasingly detached, impatient and unable to cope with others. It felt as if my body was an ever-present adversary to contend with, taxing physical, emotional, and cognitive energy. Having first-hand experience approaching and retreating from the edge, it's no mystery to me why so many people have such short fuses and lead conflict centric lives. For others, a complacent haze seems to suffice.

Quoted from Patty H
I, personally, think we are wired not just by our blood type, but also by our genetics, which are individual for every O, A, B & AB, but also, and maybe more importantly, by our family of origin.

I believe we learn how to be in relationships by observing our parents.  Having been married for 28+ years, I see A LOT of my mother-in-law in my husband when it comes to how he behaves/reacts in relationship.  I am certainly no expert, but I have read a lot on this topic.  I believe that blood type is just one of the many contributing factors, but I believe that family of origin plays a much bigger role in this.  Just my humble opinion.


I believe very much the same way.
