Ouch GCG!!! I remember being concerned when I had nosebleeds that didn't stop after 20 minutes or so!

I personally respond to both the O and the B threads, since I prepare almost all the food for my type B son.

GCG, are you taking herbs that might be thinning your blood too much?

Fish oil, I have a rare lipid profile of high triglycerides and allmost nonexistant LDL but decent HDL. Before anybody gets into diet comments the diet only helps so much and I can't eat enough fish to equal that many grams of oil plus the pharmaceutical oil is filtered and screened for heavy metals and contaminents.

If you're introverted enough, you can love the internet...

Quoted from san j
Was just browsing the Latest Posts page and found something interesting:

While one of the post titles relates to Type A,
and six relate to Type O and two of its genotypes,
SEVEN relate to Type B and one of its genotypes!
What happened to B as a rarity?
Didn't look, but maybe there's a highly extraverted B in our midst, posting up a storm!  




so funny and so true.

Even tho introverts love the internet... there is still a large social aspect to it that I find can be too much for me sometimes. I belong to an online club... been there for almost 7 years and i have only just reached 1500 posts! I get teased about it all the time.

I listen and observe... sometimes chime in, depending on the day.

Always wondered if that was a B-thing... My adoptive-mother is extremely social and extroverted, she never understood the introversion thing.

I don't think we ever concluded that Bs were more likely Introverts.
This is Part II of a very, very long thread. We've often (in keeping with the Title) explored personality stuff, however, and I know it's been discussed in some depth, if you're interested, but you'll have to search.

Though I lean toward Introversion, myself (though there have been questionnaires showing me 50/50 on the E/I scale), I've had some B clients and known some B people who are flamboyantly extraverted.

We Bs are a hoot - an amusing lot, alright.

you know... i know people who would describe me that way...flamboyantly extroverted... but i am an introvert.

too many people equate shyness with introversion and gregariousness with extroversion when in reality these 2 attributes have very little to do with each other.

introversion and extroversion have to do with energy and how much you expend or receive when you are around people and relating to people.

An introvert expends energy when dealing with people, talking to them, socializing, even just being in a crowd. This will actually make them physically tired, as well as mentally and emotionally drained / tired. They then have to spend some alone time to regroup and recharge before they can be with people again. The more introverted, the more alone time is required after being with people.

An extrovert is the opposite. They get energy and feel rejuvenated by being around people...whether it's socializing, working with others, talking on the phone, even just being in a crowded place etc...this will make extraverts feel better, happier and more productive. Being alone however will drain them dry... make them depressed, listless and tired.

The personality traits that people often think of as introversion (shyness, apprehension, bashful, timid, unassertive, modest, reserved, etc) often go along with introversion, but they are not exclusive. You can be an introvert who has good social skills and is confident and even gregarious... the introvert just needs to be aware of their limits and to plan for when they have a lot of socializing to do.

The personality traits that are linked to extroversion (gregariousness, social, confident, enthusiastic, outgoing, friendly, unreserved, etc) often go along with extroversion, but they too are not exclusive. Extroverts can shy and reserved and socially awkward... they still need to be with people because otherwise they get drained.

My ex-husband was seriously shy and socially awkward. He had a really hard time dealing with more than one or 2 people at a time. He was also extremely extroverted. He absolutely required being with people daily. If he didn't get time with other people, he would latch onto me and just drain me dry (as an introvert i needed much more space than he did). I can recall numerous time him stating things like "he feels so energizd after being with his nephews" or he "liked going to work as he feels more lively afterwards" etc (he's a teacher).

Most of the Bs in my extended family are like me... we do well socially, we're fun and chatty and gregarious...but we don't want to do it every day and we need time to recharge the batteries after we do.

I make an effort to be outgoing when I come into a new environment.  It's fun, and good for making friends, but very taxing, and I can't keep it up long.

This is a good perspective on the difference between introverts and extroverts.

Jung posited four basic psychological functions, one of which dominates in a given individual.
However, at "midlife", that function's opposite begins to ascend to consciousness. If the dominant function was introverted, its opposite will be an extraverted function. If the dominant function had been, for instance, Introverted Intuition, then the formerly unconscious Extraverted Sensation will seek the light of day.

"Midlife" hits at different ages for different people. It's safe to say that by one's fifties, the person striving to individuate will have begun to deal with it!
Jung's model is worth considering. Check out Marie-Louise von Franz's essay, "The Inferior Function", an excellent treatment, which can be found in Lectures in Jung's Typology from Spring Publications,

Thanks - and to you too.

Right now I am unemployed and getting slightly crazy over it.
Sure it is lovely to have time to take doggy for a walk, read thick books, surf the net- cook good food- but I am starting to miss being part of a group - experience new things. I live on a island and due to no money I really cant go anywhere The first months it was fine- I had run out of energy- I was teaching foreigners danish and loved my job but not the work place or the Politics behind how we treat new Danes so I ended up being relieved that my position ended . But now when it is dark from 16- 9 I am getting a bit crazy. I miss my teen daughter every day - looking foreward her coming home I do have friends but they are busy working and I only see them a few times a month or on the net  

I tend to be almost equal intro and extrovert- needing both

Oh that is just sooo much me.
I can be very outgoing chatty friendly but I always need time to think and recharge.

Hi Henriette, old friend.

Why not think in terms of a project?
One day you may look back and regret not using this time to do something important.
OR
You can look back and thank God you had the time (how long? you may not know) you may never have again.

Virtually every individual who has created something of note did so under circumstances like yours.
Paint. Through all those dark hours, listen to great music and fill those canvases!
Write music.
Write a novel.
Research a subject. Write a Cookbook for us, and practice recipes.
Throw pots.
Write poems.
Sew. Quilt.
I look forward to something wonderful from you, darlin'.

Good idea

I have actually found my old sewing maschine today ( before I read your post )
I have lots of material lying around and is in great need of new clothes and have several old projects as well

Since I am off television ( we change the way we get it this night -so my old tv doesn´t work ) I would have lots of time doing some creativ stuff.
I am planning a huge vegetable garden as well - planing o be self sufficient more or less with fruit and veggies.
And I found a group on the net that want to share advices.

So all is good and less depressing.

Yes - I did fix some pillows wss lovely feeling..

In weekend the sun came and it was lovely weather( fairly mild) so I went to the garden- and made a  bonfire
I had forgotten how important it is for us B´s to reconnect to nature
I felt amazing- beeing in garden 10 hrs in the weekend- but I was so sore from cutting down bushes etc...

So after 2,5 months wih very little outdoor activity I realised it is so important for me to be out
- not doing something all the time- remebering to enjoy nature- watch the birds- early spring flowers- look at the dog chasing cat   etc.

Hi All you B's out there. I'm looking for some assistance. I've been off taking care of some family things and my gut seems to be reacting to all the stress.  Just wondering what favorite things you B blood types have found to assist in the digestive healing process which seems to be long and drawn out with "solar flares" on occasion. uuggghhh my stabbing indigestion is a solar flare! thanks for any thoughts you might offer.

The right sort of exercise for B's, yoga or walking my dog at night for instance.

Intrinsa and ghee are very helpful for healing the gut.  Exercise is a great stress relief tool.

I don't know how long you have been following one of Dr. D'Adamo's diets, but making sure you are eating compliantly will be very helpful.
