Hmm, well I'm chronically on time unlike my O sister. My family is about 2/3 B's and 1/3 O's and they are all hard workers. At work I do like have an A to handle the detail work but personally it seems like the A's at work can't see the future implications of something till it bites them. The O's at work seem to be the ones who get bent out of shape about something minor while the A's fret about it. Only one AB and she is a real drama queen. Gets the job done while she is going through her academy award performance though. All in all everybody is good for something.

Blood type and genotype can be very powerful.  Everyone has good and bad traits and I caught someone on a lie based on my knowledge of the genotypes and I should of followed my instinct since my motorcycle was stolen that night by that person.  I think it was desperation of a type of person whose had it bad.

That's a poor excuse for theft.  Now stealing a loaf of bread or some fruit if you're starving in a poverty-stricken country I can understand.  But stealing a motorcycle because your mom was a druggie and you don't know who your dad is....that's just an excuse and a poor one at that.  My opinion.

Growing up somewhat isolated, it seems that my "genetic predisposition" is more expressed in me.

Realize, I am blond-haired, blue-eyed, fair skinned, wore glasses, tall-skinny. And I live in a land that is predominantly hispanic, so dark haired and skinned, commonly shorter, and culturally different. And add in that my parents came from Los Angeles and went to college, are school teachers, and had bizarre notions of how to raise their oddly named son in a land that demands conformity for acceptance, I found that I greatly lacked in socializing skills.

And knowing my disposition, I recognize those internal signals when I come across situations, and so better understand how to control the situations I enter into.

Then there is my AB friend. Poor guy has a bum arm and more or less the same physically as me, just with a normal first name. So he has grown up really isolated, and when I interact with him, he does display the "individualized thinking."

SO! How do you counter/fix this?

Well, add activities, diversify interests, and definitely add the "charitable acts." It does help in countering the odd "social pressures" you start feeling.

I think a lot of stressful experiences over the past few years has diminished my ability for memory and awareness (which the "Body Worlds 2" exhibit mentioned when looking at brains of people who suffer stress versus those who do not).

It is just hard to get this guy (I nickname him "the Hermit") to start putting the pieces together. Being 28 and living at home, no job, still playing video games and fixated on cartoons and movies, living with a Type A father who displays all the bad qualities of the personality, and trying to help him get off the anti-psychotics, it is a challenge, but there is no one else who can help him.

Quoted from accidental_chef


I suppose we would all get angry if we were categorised. Like the AB personality thread  ....

I want to contribute my opinion about B's. I love them to bits and they bring balance to me.

Now....having said that and coming to what the Japanese say, here's my take. In my office there are 15 B's, 1 A and 1 O, that's me.

In my hubby's family (and we live the extended family concept) there are 20 Bs, 4 As, 4 ABs and 2 Os (MIL & myself).

In a Company where everyone is supposed to work and get results there is no place for complacency, or being a non starter despite fantabulous ideas. In the office all senior decision making posts are held by B's. And it's very, very frustrating to see ideas put forward with great enthusiam and 24hrs later it's forgotten. It's like the B's have the greatest fun thinking up ideas but when it comes to following it thro, no sir, nothing happens. The A & O get into a twist and usually the O ends up carrying through many of the plans. The A is in a perpetual state of getting ready and that means eventually missing the boat!

The 3 1/2 years on BTD & now GTD has made me aware that B's are unconventional and there are ways and means to sustain their interest to make all of their fab ideas work. And to get the max out of A's without them getting tired & stressed coz of their perpetually raised corisol levels, it's better to keep tasks small without any multi tasking involved. Since it is my own Company, I can afford to put into practise what I'm privy to: the idiosynchrasies of different blood types. But not all Companies can afford to show this level compassion & understanding. Therefore, after one or two tries, people generally conclude that B's are lazy.

On family outings (suggested by the B's)my MIL and I would be the first to get ready and have all the stuff nice & ready. The Bs just dont see why things have to be so organised  . Yes, we said we'll leave at 4pm, it's only 3:59, what's the rush? Many a flight, many a train we have missed, oh my! The A's then suffer from intense pressure and stress following such a mishap and they talk about for days on end, analysing and counter analysing. The ABs initially would support the Bs idea and then when things begin to get difficult (the Os pushing the Bs to hurry up, raised voices etc)they would just abandon ship. And remain withdrawn. And have no qualms talking to all and sundry about what happened within the 4 walls. The Os would have blown their top but by the following day all's well. These examples cited are only my personal experiences and it is in no way a blanket statement about all blood types   .

Do I think B's are lazy? No, not at all. We all just have different levels of motivation I guess.


AC, this post is great!

I heard to that Japanese think that B's "...like to try new things..."      
Could that be interpreted as "easily distracted"?

Oh AC this is but also a little close to the bone for me! I remember a comment made by my lecturer, she said: how are you going to find something to sustain your interest long enough to complete works and succeed- something along those lines, eek.
If i ever do find that, I will be extremely productive I know it, as I have a tonne of energy when things get started and it trails off just as quickly as it appeared   This applies to my relationships, work, ideas and dreams. Very close to the bone AC! I am glad you have found ways to keep your B clans interest sustained, you must be quite well regarded yourself by them too for giving them that- well done!

Ah...I didnt know there were responses to my ponderings !

Maldo, we might call it easily distracted, but in all honesty, they are having too much fun with their innate ability to visualise ! Remind me to think this way when I get frustrated with them next time

There was once a situation where my poor MIL & I had to ask the Bs to help with stringing 10kg of green beans. 15 of them would have made light work of the whole thing we thought. First batch was very fast, they made a game out of stringing beans   ...but 20 minutes later there was an unusual silence, so I checked...and there was just 2 A's toiling away. We didnt know the As had arrived...but the Bs had wandered off even before the A's arrived. I found a few Bs just lounging around, or gazing at the wall etc., When I asked them what happened to the green bean project they said they were taking a break. And the As were so worried that the beans wouldnt be ready in time, despite finishing stringing, washing, cut and put in the pot

My MIL wasnt amused with her B brood, and she was losing her cool with the gentle As for refusing to stop worrying. She was muttering "now we'll have to listen to the abandoned green bean project for one whole week". Reminding MIL of A's naturally high cortisol levels didnt help and for my own safety I decided to move away and take a break-just like the Bs

Oh Honeybee, you'll need to come here to witness it   O Hunters and A Teachers seem to be a B's dream processors. Again, just based on my family...

I love where this thread is going!  I think Bs are natural "consultants".  We can look at problems with a current client, come up with brilliant solutions, then move on to a whole new situation.  Bs are better at leadership than management or toil.

I bet you do love where it's going!

About Bs being consultants.....the Bs in my life know a lot of stuff.  Or at least they act like they do!   I'm always thinking, of my B friends, Oh, I should ask so-and-so this--they'll know.  And more often than not, they do know.  Or at least it sounds good anyway.

True, but it's hard for us to stay focused.  And it's not that I haven't had to do a lot of hard work, I just have more trouble staying on task.

I have a good working knowledge about a wide variety of things, and I like that, being "jack of all trades".  But the other half of the saying is true, too: "master of none".  It's hard for me to sustain interest in a field long enough to become an expert.  If I ever go back to school for a master's degree, I will have to be more careful what field of study I pick!  I admire Mr. Ribbit for his focus and perseverance in getting his Ph.D. in a very technical, challenging field.

Well, it took him 7 1/2 years.  He said he was bored stiff and would literally never have finished if he hadn't gotten married.  He said it was a big wake-up call that he couldn't just sit around and spin his wheels and wrack up debt by traveling around the world every couple of years.  He suddenly had a pregnant wife who needed to eat and who needed a place to live that didn't have black, fluffy mildew growing on the walls.

So seven months after we were married he graduated and has job-hopped since.  He wanted to teach college biology, but everywhere he interviewed didn't offer hardly any more per year than what he was making in grad school   which was barely enough to live on.  So he gave up that idea.  He found out just how hard it is to get hired in your field when you have your PhD but can't afford to teach and refuse to do research.  Research bored him to tears.


But speaking of Bs, I have to add this about some of their better qualities.  My husband's father is a B.  He's got a terrible temper, but he's also just as sweet as can be--if you haven't pushed his buttons.  But this man is just plain lucky.  I don't even believe in "luck" per se, but this guy is lucky.  If he's driving, all somebody needs to say is, "Let's get a parking spot up close" and he'll say, "Alright" and drive up close, and there's a spot just waiting on him!  The entire family jokes that if anybody else were driving, that spot wouldn't have been there.  And if his baseball team needs a homerun, or the bowling team needs a strike, they'll say, "C'mon Bob, give us what we need."  He says, "Alright," and gives them exactly what they need.  It's so funny to watch.  He's the man for the moment.  When he fills out stuff that comes in the mail saying "Scratch off this and win big!" he scratches it off, sends it in, and does indeed win a monogrammed dog blanket or whatever.  Maybe he'll pass that ability down to his son one of these days!

I don't mean leadership in the conventional way, but more the way Steven Covey uses the term.  Leadership is identifying your guiding values, implementing those values into practice, monitoring practices to make sure they continue to follow values, and making course corrections on practices when they are out of line with your guiding values.  This can be applied in an individual's own life or in any organization.

HB, field marshall mentality?  I don't get it...

Quoted from Henriette Bsec
Exactly
and that is why I have several degrees:
BA in prehistoric Archeology
Done most of my MA in modern history
Got a teacher degree

and now work with people whos got dementia... I am quite sure that Ill move on from that.

I had several majors: (in order) electrical engineering, microbiology, business, and finally psychology.  I only graduated in psychology because I was ready to just have my degree in my hand, but I'd lost interest at that point.  My interest in psychology has come and gone a few times times then.

Quoted from Ribbit
Well, it took him 7 1/2 years.  He said he was bored stiff and would literally never have finished if he hadn't gotten married.  He said it was a big wake-up call that he couldn't just sit around and spin his wheels and wrack up debt by traveling around the world every couple of years.

I nearly took that long for my bachelor's degree.  I wish I could have blamed it on "traveling around the world every couple of years" , but I CAN blame a lot of it on poor health.  I'm glad it didn't take getting married for me to get it together!  My dad (also a B) has told me that having a family depending on him enabled him to put up with a lot more than he would have when he was single--especially where work is concerned.  Also, he despises having someone looking over his shoulder all the time, and he stayed at a cr*ppy job with miserable pay (when he could have made a lot more elsewhere) because the boss there stayed out of his way and let him make his own schedule, as long as he got the work done.

Ribbit, that's pretty crazy about his father!  I don't believe in luck, either.
