Well this is where I need to explain...

My dad... is actually my step dad and is not my sister's father or my father. And yes he is a B.

My biological father was an A and drank way too much and ate a lot of meat his whole life and died at the age of 52 a couple Christmas' ago of a heart attack. Go figure!

My younger sister has a different father than me and we don't know his type. I am the second oldest of 5 children. My young brother Andrew is an AB like my mom and his dad is the B blood type. My younger brother is a B like his dad. My older sister who has the same mom and dad as me... I'm guessing she is either an A or AB... than again could she be a B with an AB mother and an A father?


O positive baby boy.

no...she d be an AB or an A

on second thought, yes, she could be a B
if B from your mom and a possible recessive O gene from Dad came together.

if Dad were an Aa.....no B would be possible

it s like math!

Interesting! I was thinking... maybe... but wasn't totally sure. For her I wish I could make her a B, she sure does love her cheese! Even better if she was a Nomad! Of course I highly doubt it and she is most likely a AB like my mom.

This thread is month's old, but I'm going to weigh in with my two(or twenty) cents worth.

I find that I hold people back at a distance. When I was younger I jumped into every friendship with both feet, no life preserver, and I paid dearly for it. Now, I am very cautious with people. I have had people tell me that I am hard and unfeeling towards others. That I am very opinionated and always think I'm right. I am happy to admit when I am wrong, but prove it, don't just yell your opinion even louder or repeat yourself hoping to change my mind. I am married to a 'pitbull' O type. This has caused many a kafuffle in our 17 years of marriage. I will back down and walk away to stop an argument. Doesn't matter if I agree with you or believe you...you won't listen, so I am done talking to you. Don't come to me unless you want the truth. If you are calling or emailing me to whine, ok, fine, but make sure you don't want me to give you a solution, cuz that too has caused some serious rifts in my relationships. Mostly extended family.lol

As a person, I am creative and I consider myself techy...yet, I am a total tech moron compared to some. Singing, music, knitting, crocheting, painting, arts, dramas, preaching, teaching....these are all my outlets. I love to share wisdom. I love to guide. I love people. Every job that I've ever had that I was truly happy in involved people. I speak with authority. I am very confident. But those last two came after many younger years of inferiority and depression. I have to say it's been my relationship with God that's had a huge impact on the person I am today.

Foods...I've always loved veggies. Used to be a huge meat consumer until one day I realized I was getting super sick from it. Then I edged red meat out of my life and started on a path to vegetarianism. I have always been grossed out by fish but love crustacians. A girlfriend pointed me to ERFYT. I was shocked when I saw how close I was to having it right besides a few things. Unfortunately, they are things I adore, such as salsa (tomatoes, peppers), artichokes, olives, parmesan cheese, just to name a few. These were all very heavy items in my diet. . However, just taking out chicken and eating about 95% compliant, I have found that I feel so much better.

My mother had recently wanted me to go on this HCG diet. I had been on BTD plan for just a few days before i decided "Ok, fine, I'll try this". Literally, I started to bleed after 10 days and I was eating chicken every single day. There were these two "load up" days where you had to eat lots and lots of fats...omg, I thought I was going to die or vomit or both. It was so awful! Needless to say after I started bleeding and i felt like mud...I quit taking it. I decided that I had felt great on BTD and in just a few days of being on plan I had lost a few pounds right away. I am kicking myself slightly over having tried the HCG thing. Should've just stayed with the BTD and I could've been feeling better for longer.(beating myself up is something I'm good at too) I am still working my way into the BTD plan completely. Having a few snafoo's along the way, but working it out.

Thanks for  the chance to spout!

Quoted from ABJoe

I am definitely a problem solver.  If you don't want your problem solved, don't tell me about it, or whine about it...  I get really annoyed when I lay awake at night solving a problem (or wake up with a solution) that someone told me about and when I supply the answer, they say "Oh, I was just talking..." or some such drivel...


Same Here. This is why i don't want to be a Psychologist. I listen to people tell me there  problem and when i give them an answer they say to me "oh I'll go do that" and later when i ask them how are they they tell me they are still having problems and i ask did they try what i said and there like no. GRRR then why come and tell me your problems if your not going to take my advice. OY

you guys can simply sit around and be creative!


HAHAHAHAHAHA Simply sit around and be creative lol thats only half true for me. My best work (cause I'm ADHD) is when i start out by moving around or even if I'm sitting but moving my legs or tapping my foot

Quoted from Lola
even devoted!
Yes that is very true with me as well. The best way to describe it is like a dog with a meat bone I wont stop working on a project sometimes till it prefect.

My dad is the oldest of 10.  All of my aunts and uncles on this side ended up with bt AB except 1, who came out O!  He was the only one out of the 10 with anger management problems and very combatitive and competitive.  But is a very succesful attorney today.

My dad is AB, but also very competitive and handles stress better than anyone else i know or have heard of.  Was an excellent heart surgeon until retirement.  Never lost his cool one time.  He now is in politics and does excellent.

Interesting.  I have been into sports since young and still am.  I had conducted a lot of endurance sports and bonked once because I had depleted all of my glucose, after about 10 hours of racing and still not able to see the finish line.  

I still am athletic and I have to exercise almost daily to keep myself sane and in check.  If not I get extremely antsi and become a boar I believe to those around.  I had to do longer runs and individual(crossfit, etc) exercises to calm down, having much unfocused energy.

I merely observed us- compared to MBTI-tests or to ENTP/J's or INTP7J's... our familiar part here are ENFP/J's or INFP/J's.... we don't have much resemblences with SP-or SJ-stylers ....   but even this might be a presumption of my own perception.... if so I apologize...and yep I justamente was thinking about my AB-confrère ABJoe who outes himself as an istp/J ....

and remember it well- we do have NT-style in %centages E or I can be our preferred ones to show us to the world... but then hoppeling around in the enneagram only using other patters like described in http://www.theenneagraminstitut.com

Always we try to fix somebody we discriminate a certain potential in a human....
and while remembering that people are mirroring ourselfs...so fa...so well

I deal with stress by watching TV Shows or Movies, listening to Music or sitting outside alone,I love being alone to think & just Relax. I'd saying meditation is also a good thing for AB's.
I'm very talkative but learning to be a better Listener.
I go through phrases where sometimes I don't want to be around anybody then I wanna be around everybody. I'm very moody, unpredictable & extremely loveable & loving & can be also very generous.
I can study things obsessively, I have OCD!!
I'm excited about learning all I can about my blood type how to eat for my blood type so I feel healthier.

I think this is true for many, many people - definitely not at all peculiar to your tiny minority.
Quoted from Tammy

I don't know if you've been diagnosed with this disorder and are being treated for it. If not, I would definitely not equate heightened abilities of concentration and focus and study with some disorder. The world's greatest thinkers have been blessed with dogged pursuit of answers.
My understanding of the OCD diagnosis is one which requires evidence of multiple pathological preoccupations and activities - hypervigilance about, say, one's stove being turned off, counting the number of lines in the sidewalk, lining up the fringes of one's rug just so, requiring a bizarre level of "perfection" in the tiniest of household tasks or activities, washing one's hands the "requisite" number of times per day/hour - these accumulating and really standing out to any observer. I do believe Dr. D'Adamo correlates this disorder with type A, but I don't have the book in front of me and might be mistaken?
My point is: Bandying about terms to denigrate what might be an asset is to ill serve your health interests, IMO.

Quoted from Tammy

Hi, Tammy. Thought you could use Dr. D'Adamo's description of OCD Symptoms. This is taken from his book, Eat Right 4 Your Type: Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia, under "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)", p. 375.
Quoted from Dr. D'Adamo

Obsession:
- Fear of dirt or contamination
- Concern with order, symmetry, and exactness
- Constantly thinking about certain sounds, images, words, or numbers
- Fear of harming a family member or friend
- Fear of thinking evil or sinful thoughts

Compulsion:
- Excessive hand washing
- Checking repeatedly that the doors are locked and appliances are turned off
- Arranging items in a precise order
- Counting over and over to a certain number
- Touching certain objects several times


This is a very serious diagnosis, and my hope is that if you have it you are not ashamed to get the treatment you need, or that if you don't have it, you are not falsely labeling yourself because you are, say, a thorough thinker.

I'm not sure Amazone understood my concern for you? But I would suggest you confide in a health professional familiar with this condition and be diagnosed before you believe this is your problem. A friend of mine's husband has this disorder, and it can be very disabling if not treated!

and vice versa  

I'd go for a higher intake of aminoacids- but first get tested what are your lacks.... OCD often is the output of lacks- conerning our brain function/chemistry.... and it isn't always the fact that we need to be *diagnosed* and reduced to whatever but on contrary we need guydancy of a very gentle professional ND !!! Somebody working in bioresonances with the adequate material...
meant here is to be able to go for *biofeedbacks* and no big times and your problem will be solved... no need for chemical bombs nor neuroleptica or anything in that area ....
Often those attaint behaviours are masking the true issue...first find out what's really the thema and then work on yourselve ......

Every sickness begins in our heads... it's a sort of longterm vibe and if we've understood what resonances are doing with and in our bodies.... thus it enables us to become masters of our own lifes .
