I have been pondering this question for the past couple weeks and am wondering if thre is such a correlation. My blood type is Type O and have been wondering if there are suggested careers based on the blood type?  Any feedback is appreciated.

In Japan personality tests, in combination with blood type, are an important prerequisite when applying for a job......

Quoted Text
personality
Dr D
If we consider 'personality' (a rather inexact concept) to be much like a stream of
water, we would know that this stream of water will take the path of least
resistance. In times of health and low stress, the depth of the channel in minimized
and the flow of water can take on a wider course (free choice). However, during
times of stress and ill-health the channel deepens and the course of water has less
freedom of movement; it becomes canalized and stereotypical. The deepening of the
channel is the effects genetics (things like blood type).

I think things that relate to hunter/gatherer work well.. and there are a lot of parallels in the modern world. Also try googling Myers-Briggs and see if you can take a mini-test that tells you your approach to life... then google the word careers with Myers-Briggs and bet you'll come up with some interesting options. A lot of people here have things like INFJ, ENTP, etc., written in their sigs... and those are Myers-Briggs personality types (nothing to do outright with blood types, though now I'm wondering if D'Adamo ever tried to do some correlation between the Myers-Briggs personality types and blood types).

Thanks for all the replies. I have already done the Myers-Briggs, actually a few times. I am a ESTJ if I recall. I did find some careers based on blood type here:

http://vocationalpsychology.com/biology9.htm

Type O: Banker, politician, gambler, minister, investment broker, baseball player

Type A: Accountant, librarian, economist, novelist, computer programmer, gossip columnist

Type B: Cook, hairdresser, military leader, talk show host, journalist, golfer

Type AB: Bartender, lawyer, teacher, sales representative, social worker


So the only two on this list that interest me would be a politician to a baseball player. Since I am 31 and have not played hardball since I was like 12, let's be realistic and throw that one out. I guess that sums it up, a politicain it will be!

No but really is there any other informationout there?

Dr D has worked more toward the stress levels and management in the different bloodtypes......
his approach is more scientific.

have you read the tutorial?
http://www.dadamo.com/knowbase/newbie/1.htm

there s a lesson on stress and bloodtypes.

Personally my career choice was guided by what I enjoy/am good at and not my blood type.  

However blood type tells me how to structure my life outside work, what exercise to do to relax and what food to eat to keep myself healthy and well...

Sometimes my job is very pressurised and BTD also tells me how to function at my limits - it tells me what my stress reaction is likely to be and how to deal with it - what food to eat, what exercise to do, to sleep etc. It allows me to push my limits without doing myself too much damage in the process...

Got a feeling some might say I am kidding myself there and that I should find a way to make a living that is less involved but I like it that way for the time being

Hi smp, nice to meet you!

As a type O who loved working in a bookstore, imo blood type tells you more about how you will react in a given situation than what sort of work you should be doing. For example (and these are all my own anecdotal, very tongue-in-cheek observations from knowing and working with the blood types) . . .

if you were to make a given blood type a bookstore clerk:

Os would probably have fun bringing in the deliveries and doing the lifting, sorting, and filling shelves. Changing display windows and decorating for the season--any physical activity. Managing would probably lure them in because it's a leadership position, but they have to stay active or else they become frustrated alphas, getting stressed out, pushy and sometimes downright mean.

As would be the listmakers. They would consult Ye Olde Key List religiously, worry about ordering too many trade paperbacks from small publishers, and fret over the number of books in the Staff Hold section. And they would be the ones to call customers for the third time to remind them their special order is in.

Bs would forever be in the back room, looking for that project they started to promote summer reading lists. They meant to get back to it right away, but the new periodicals came in and then the bestseller back wall had to be changed AGAIN--there's just too much wandering around the store to get anything done!

ABs would be in the staff room meditating to regain their shattered calm after a customer asked for 'the book that's about an inch thick, I think it has a purple cover--it was on 'Oprah' last year, you know the one I mean.'

Seriously--don't let your blood type dictate your career. Do what you love to do, and the rest will follow. The MBTI is a good place to discover your preferences and abilities as well. This INFJ highly recommends it.  

Welcome to the board! I look forward to your posts

ESTJ =

executive, ceo, supervisor, business consultant, manager, strategist, financial planner, business person, office manager, public relations manager, international business specialist, business analyst, management consultant, operations manager, loan officer, lawyer, marketing, sports management, government employee, investment banker

If you would like to be a politician and ball player, I would consider a career in sports management.  

I am a certified to administer the MBTI have not found much of a correlation at all between blood type and career type.  The correlations between career and MBTI are striking.

I'm not sure if the OP was thinking this, but along the same lines as the concerns of the OP, I've felt like I've had a hard time fitting in in pretty much any environment, and wondered if the blood type influence is what it is.  MBTI-wise, I'm an INTP, but as B female, I've never been able to make it work for me, to say nothing of the fact that I'm really not qualified for, and may not have the talent for a lot of the careers suggested for my MBTI type (I'm pretty sure I'm never going to be  a Judge, a Physicist, or a Univerisity Professor, and I'm not sure I want a career as Forest Ranger or a Photographer, and I'm not sure I fit in the IT/computer programmer culture...)  Is there a way to make blood type and MBTI work?

I am a female ENTJ and always had a talent for systems, leadership and problem solving.  I started in Phys Ed, moved to Languages and finally ended up in Apparel Design and Technology.  I dabbled in Nutrition and Health Psychology, but found the one on one counselling took too much of my soul.  

Started at the bottom in the first clothing factory I worked in and moved up to CAD/CAM team leader within 1 year.  Got head hunted to head the design team for the largest outerwear supplier in Canada then started my own business, sold that business consulted for banks and 15 years later, I am COO of a polyurethane/Compression Rubber factory that supplies oil and gas and manufacturing industries.

I am the only woman in the factory and I have a great time.  My biggest issues are the other management are wildly introverted and I am almost "too" extroverted.   Funny thing though, is I spend much of my day working with my factory techs on drug and health issues.  When I first started in the factory, the men were wary of me, but within a month all was good and I fit right in.  Most of the time, I have had to adapt to the personality of the company, until I was able to find my own team.  

I often find INTP's find it tough to "fit in" a regular corporate environment, where the rules are generally set by ESTJ's, ISTJ's and ENTJ's.  Everything has to be done on time with an eye to profit and very little time for exploring other ideas.

I would suggest you read a book called Refuse to Choose by Barbara Sher.  It explores how to create a life if you have a number of interests or if you are a diver of sorts (divers go deep on one subject, plate spinners love variety).
I am a plate spinner who loves to learn different types of software systems for businesses, install them and teach people how to use them.

The book also talks about people who have jobs to "survive" but then have fantastic lives of exploration and discovery beyond their jobs.  Teachers during the school year, travel leaders during the breaks etc.  If you are having problems designing a satisfying life, please check out the book.

I am an INFP special ed teacher.  I am very interested in Psychology and learning about people, even though I am very introverted.  Knowing personality type helps you know yourself and what you like to do.  Blood type helps you feel your best so you can do whatever you love to do!

I appreciate all the replies. Sorry I have not been around, I have been doing some exercising!  Anyways I am not looking for my blood type to per say dictate my career, but it seems to me that sitting in front of a computer and doing network engineering might not be right for me. I have also managed a call center to a retail store. And while I enjoyed leadership, I found myself doing the work more often as I enjoyed it more than per say the management role.

When my father was growing up, they had a job to have a job because during his life jobs were hard tocome by. One would be happyjust to have a good paying job. He worked on the assembly line for 30 years, and as a kid he told me to get a better job. So I went to school, got a few degrees and then went into Network Engineering which I have no degree in...fancy that. The job fell into my lap and makes good money, but truly I do not enjoy it. Perhaps I have been setup to always look for a better job, I am not sure. But I keep looking for something better, something I will enjoy.

So I have been talking with my Uncle Ron, who is a business consultant per say(now semi-retired). He has me doing a process of identifying the things I am good at and the things I enjoy. We are then going to come up with a career choice based on those things. If it means going back to school, then so be it.

Once I get that list together I will throw it up on this post for those curious as what comes of this journey i am on. Any other insight is for surely appreciated.

here I am mostly with jeanb ......I just love Myers-Briggs and her book *gifts differing* and also the Riso enneagram....it explains what might happen when taking the integrative way (integrations of our shadows ) ....orrr what will happen if not........ going for this way .........

the sp-style is very often found in O's almost clerks who have to work correctly with their hands......
sj is merely for the B-style....going for moneymaking jobs ....= bankers etc.......all kinds of sales
nf's are good teachers and social workers, nurses etc.....
nt's are good quacks ...... .....always with the aim to get solved things....to make things happen.....to change here and there and everywhere for a better world .........
