So here's a question about this B and individuality thing.

I've always seen myself as pretty offbeat, not typcial in many ways.  However, don't a lot of O's and A's feel that way?

My husband is an O and is as offbeat as they come.

So how does one differentiate the unique way a B might be individualistic compared to the other types?

Just wondering.

Gail


Gail I think your Q? drowned  

Well I am sure that other bt can feel individualistic as well - so I am not sure how to differentiate the unique way we B feel -as you put it.

I do think that MORE B´s are individualitic than O´s and A´s  as a group... but that is just my experience.

Great question!

I have to admit, that I absolutely DON'T believe in the bloodtype's connection to the personality.

I consider myself very NOT like everyone else. To the point of making a point of it.

If everyone else is doing something - I'm NOT. If everyone else is raving about something - I'm NOT. If I see people all running in one direction, I wander off in the opposite direction. If everyone else is excited and/or aggitated - I act cool and calm.

I don't think my B husband thinks the same. He's OK with being like others (He's not - of course - wouldn't have chosen a run-off-the-mill-husband, now would I?! ) and with following the same trends as everyone else, if he likes.

In my opinion it lies in our upbringing, mostly. I'm brought up with, that I'm an individual and NOT like everyone else. (We're a family of O's and A's) So it's absolutely OK to be out of the ordinary.
My husband's family (O's and B's) is more concerned about what the neighbours are thinking and don't like to break out of the common patterns.

Poly it is so funny to read this - you should have been my big sister

My dads family sounds just like your husbands family

while my mums family was VERY concervative University Educated- oriented-
I wonder how she became such a wild O ?- and got 2 very individualistic B daughters and a even worse O granddaughter
So I agree I don´t really think it has any thing to do with BT

Aww... someone called me "little"  

But Isa is right, I do carry the nonnie gene... does that make me half nonnie??

And Poly... I come from a very conservative family big into following the norms and not straying too far outside of dominant cultural expectations. And yes... I am called the "oddball" of the family.

I think it is a whole host of experiences, genetic predispositions, individual temperaments, that make up our unique personality expression.

I'd love to!

Fascinating, Isalein! I actually suspect my mother was a nonnie - so that would make me a semi-nonnie, right?? (or a pseudo-nonnie?? )

Thanks for responding to my thread.

I think the whole thing gets complicated.  Sort of like astrology,  Jungian typology, enneagram types, etc.  But with all of these, despite similarities across groups, there may be a certain "essence" that is similar within a group.  With some people it just shines forth, and with others it's more subtle.

Still, I know that my Type O husband and his Type O sister are pretty offbeat and as individualistic and non-conformist as they come.  


On the OTHER hand, maybe the B individuality thing is more like the nomad type as a seeker, or someone who searches out new ideas.  This could include thoughts, ideas, goals, etc.  They may be more fluid and open to new ideas and playing around with new directions.

My offbeat O husband can be pretty rigid and stubborn, and wedded to his "offbeat" beliefs.  But I am more likely (despite my initial stubbornness) to consider other views.

Just some thoughts.

Gail, luv: This might seem like an unfairly heavy homework assignment, but:

The "B & Individuality" Thread (preceding this one, which is its second generation) began over a year ago, featuring the answers to your question.  I think you'd find it really interesting to go back to it (It's considered a "sticky" thread) and read through it, and then pick up this one ("II") at the beginning.  We B's have been getting to know each other and dealing with this "Individuality" issue together for a long time, and we welcome you by our desert campfire...

I was going to write this to you sooner, but I was...lazy...or too busy watching the clouds commute across the sky

Wasn't there a thread about this somewhere? It was based upon one of Dr.D.'s blogs or an Ask Dr.D-thingy about that subject - the heterozygote scretor.

I can't remember what it said, but it was something about being a half-way non-secretor. I'll have to try and search for it again (where's Lola the search-wiz, when you need her, hm?? )

Funny thing is, after Isa mentioned it, I looked the O-nonnie-diet up in my LR4YT. I never before payed it any attention - I always knew I was a seccie, even before the test.
So I looked the nonnie-diet up, and - lo and behold - I eat like a nonnie!

You know me - I love food - I'm totally omnivorous! There are not many food items I don't like or don't agree with me. Turns out, that every single thing I have an aversion or bad reaction to is an O-nonnie-avoid. Even the frequencies and portions fit: I eat protein at every meal, and spelt is a rare treat - I gain weight if I eat too much spelt. Funny, huh?!

OK - I'll now shut up and leave you B's in peace! *Poly makes a B-line*

Aw, you can't be everywhere at once, Lola - though I must admit I'm amazed how you can look things up and reply on almost everything and almost everywhere. Just amazing!

Anyway, my memory about this subject was so vague - my PM would have been: "Lola - where's that article about that thing with the thing where you're halfway a thing, you know?!?"

Now, how long do you think, I'll have to wait for an article that says: Change in rating for coffee - now beneficial for O's!!!

B's: Hello there!  There are a number of new-b's in the Forum, and I'm sure we B's would like to welcome them into our special family.
Also, it's been awhile since we've had a pow-wow.  How is everyone?

After I posted the Dairy blog a couple of weeks ago (Note: My blogger-name is "Santé_j", for you newbies), I made one of the recipes: the Shrikand... I'm looking for a smiley that says what I wanted to say about this amazing dessert, but it doesn't exist...
DO try it out for yourselves.  We're so Blessed to B able to eat it.

For my part, I've lately had some avoids here and there, and, I've gotta say.  I do so much better on my bennies and neutrals.  BUT: You can't beat Double Rainbow's Chocolate Chocolate Mint ice cream.  Don't worry, it's only available at ONE shop in this town, and I just order a scoop on a cone, oh, 6-7 time a year.  DEE-lish!

So: Where are y'all these days? Newbies, Jump right in!

Same old place. I just got through eating leg of lamb slow roasted in Shiraz with portabello mushrooms, vidalia onions, carrots and fresh rosemary. Poor dog had to eat dog food since she is getting sort of plump.  It is 95 F here with no rain in sight, so I had to water the tomato and okra plants. They are full of big green tomatos but no ripe ones yet. Tomatos....one of the few nonnie benefits. Had a pretty intense hour and a half yoga class but sad to say I can't do Wheel pose yet. Hand stands are progressing though. Hasta la vista.

Passed my exam in  Psychology at University today with a VERY good grade I am so happy since it was my most difficult subject.
It is 29 c /84 F here and the sun is VERY strong for this mild country - everybody seem to get burns...
. I am just about to go out and do some work with my bees I hope they are all out collecting nectar in this wonderfull weather.
My garden grows insane- we have had lots of different weather - now new potatoes, asparagus and strawberries with CREAM are ready. I can´t believe how much better homegrown- oldfashioned strawberries taste.
My tomatoes ( for my little 0) has just started to set small green fruits- I think they weill be ready in 4-6 weeks time.

Welcome to the new B´s

And I really did wave to you from Amsterdam when I was there!!
