I have noticed key similarities in the people who seems to misunderstand me ( thought processes, esp.)  I seem least compatible with Hunters and Warriors, although I like them as people no less.
Never met a Nomad I didn't get along with, either!

What about you? Has anyone besides me experiences this?

I can tell the people that have completely different thought processes, but
I don't know them by genotype. I wish I could genotype everyone (sometimes I try).
It would allow for some interesting experiments.

I'll come back to this post though. I'm curious now.

nobody!
Just kidding.

Everyone really so long as they have feelings and can have fun.
Explorers and people of my own blood type I feel I have the most in common with.  But everyone has simularities.  I know many Type Os that I get along well with them too (maybe opposites attract?).  Sometimes other As drive me nuts when they get too detail obsessed.  

I love how Dr D makes you aware of how we are such different types.  Before I read him I thought everyone must be pretty much the same in how they react to stress and feel, wrong!

I don't know most people by gentotype but we are all soooooooo different, even among our own gentotype. My family of 4 has at least 3 hunters, maybe 4 and we range from hyper to super calm, from understanding to critical, etc.

I am alot older than you, just about double your age, so I have had lots of time to learn how to adjust to the differences among people. I think I can get along with anybody at this point and I've learned to activate certain aspects of my personality based on the signals I receive from another personality, so we have the best chance to communicate.

I am a Hunter and I know we would be compatible! I am also fascinated by the differences in people.

Wow, great post!

I'm glad to hear you say we would get along!   I think its all a matter of giving people the benefit of the doubt and taking a sincere interest in their point of view.

I get along with other Explorers since I have to.

Their stubbornness makes it more effort to reach an agreement or even the "agree to disagree" situation.  I, of course, am eminently flexible - so long as an important principle is not involved.  

I have a Nomad friend who I haven't seen in years.  Time with him, no matter what we are doing, always seems too short.

I have noticed this before as well.  I can't say about genotype, but I can say about blood type.  I'll give you an example.  Once after church we ladies were sitting around chatting and one particular lady was describing a class her daughter was taking.  She asked, "And guess what project she picked to do?"  I answered correctly, having no idea.  Everybody looked at me in astonishment because there was no way I could have known.  I explained that she (the lady speaking) and I were the only blood type As in the group.  The others were either Os or unknown.  They didn't believe it had anything to do with blood type, of course, but I knew.  I knew the way her brain was ticking.  Nobody else had any clue, nor could they understand how I guessed the right answer.  When I converse with As and Bs, the conversation is easy.  It's intuitive.  When I converse with most Os, I have to spell it all out or they don't understand what I'm saying.  And they think I'm really difficult because I  just don't get it.  And I don't.  I have to listen very carefully to what they're saying or I won't get their point.

I don't know why that is except brains are just wired very differently.

Just rethinking again as I was making lunch.  I said all that, but I do have some very dear friends who are Os.  I was trying to think why the difference between the Os I "get" and the Os I don't, and I think some people just seem to be willing to go the extra mile in making communication work.  I get along with my O friends, but it does take a little more effort to understand each other.  If that makes sense.

Generally, I'm just attracted to kind, considerate people and it makes no difference to me what their blood types are.  I can pretty much get along with anyone, although I will not always make the effort to become friendly or stay friendly with truly difficult people.

My two best friends are type O.

I find it difficult to get along with people who won't take me seriously, or who insist on using vulgar language in my presence (even after making my feelings known).  Just about anyone who is respectful and wants to get along with me will have no trouble doing so.  Unfortunately, some people thrive on conflict.

This is so true and such an important component of getting along with others, or the world for that matter. We become so passionate about our own beliefs (think BTD) it's hard to make room for other ideas and realize that other people are just as passionate about what they believe. It's about tolerance and acceptance of our differences.

It's wonderful to have a forum and be able to share at least one passion we all have in common and yet be able to celebrate our differences as well.

You are a wise 25 year old!

I've had many O's, A's, B's and even a few AB's as friends. Blood type hasn't made a bit of difference.  Probably had a bit more O's but that could be because there are more of them.....shrugs....dunno.

I think I click with non-secreters that are explorers or hunters, secreter explorers and secreter women hunters. I find Gatherers very difficult at large even though my best friend is may be one and would defiantly go to say women gatherers are the worst. I am too bold a lot of the time for Teachers, and I do ok with some Warriors although predominately male. Nomads typically like me more than I like them.

Personally I think outside factors control the situation more than blood type as far as being able to tolerate people, but as far as just pure easability genotype is big. I do not do well with Chads (common jocks), business majors (college), media-backed people (pop culture-ites), lesbians could care less that I exist, mean women or domineering do not like me without talking to me even, domineering men want to assert themselves over me (I let them pretend), consumers, religious people, scenesters (fake punks, hipsters which are fake real people, fake anything), potheads because they do nothing not because they smoke pot, and uh that is the basic breakdown.

I do well with real anarchists, people that like to be physically active, people really into making music or dancing and theatre people to some degree, often real well with anyone that has a screwy past and fits any of those descriptions so maybe nonnies, less self conscious attractive women (ok men too but it is just flattery to me), those interested in being healthy through food, people in general looking to grow as a person, and it all dependent on my ability to feel good. I can do great with people or they can think I am a quiet jerk depending on how well I feel.

I've always been the type of person who can get along with anyone.  However, not to say that some people don't annoy me!!! haha  I tend to stay away from people who are all about drama and chaos.  (Unfortunately, that means I have to completely block out my MIL......HAHAHAHAHAHA!)  

I'm a very level headed, practical introverted person.  And as such, I tend to be a loner....mostly invisible to others, I think.  I don't do well in large groups for long periods of "socializing". Honestly, sometimes I think I could go live in the wilderness with all the animals and be just fine.  I long to be more spontaneous and fun and so I gravitate towards people who yank me right out of my shell.  My husband (Warrior), of couse, is the polar opposite of me and is a social butterfly.  The person at work that I get along so well with, despite the fact that she is 25 years older than me, is also a Warrior.  

I think the ones that annoy me are those people who are just like myself....Expolorers whose motto is "I do it my way"....haha.  It has taken me YEARS and many life lessons to not push my beliefs on others and try to get them to see my way.  Now, I just let everyone be as they are and accept them for who they are.  I don't even share my belief system with anyone unless they ask.....  And I have learned to immediately "let go" when I sense someone is trying to push their beliefs on me.  I used to engage that and let it become a battle of egos, now I just let it go and don't engage it at all.  I try not let it annoy me, because I know I used to be the same way...haha!

I'm all about doing my part to create peace on earth.....even if it is just with myself!

I just wanted to add one more thing because I found it so interesting.  I was having a discussion with my son's optometrist the other day and we got onto the subject of diet.  He is a big believer in the Weston A Price way of things and I could tell he had a very stong belief system.  Years ago, I know it would have become a battle of the wills.  But we had such a great conversation (he is type A, and I'm "guessing" he would be Warrior).  Our conversation, instead of being something where each of us was trying convince the other of something, it was a total "meeting of the minds".  It was a wonderful sharing of information and accepting each other for who we are and what we have learned about ourselves on our individual journeys.  It was about finding the between us and not the differences.  And the more we talked, the more we found that, despite different philsophies, we really are achieving the same end.  All I could think was..."if only the whole world could learn to interact this way...to focus on the common ground rather than the differences".   It really was a beautiful thing.

So it seems I have alot of Warriors in my life...............

I find that conflict exists when someone with a point of view is invested in changing my point of view.

I've gotten to the point where if someone has strong opinions and I see that
this is turning into a need for that person to win me over to their side, I simply stop speaking, act as if I'm acknowledging their point of view (which I would be, although not particularly agreeable with what they're saying) and at that point, would end the conversation or walk away knowing that we don't agree.  It's not always necessary that somebody be convincing enough to change another person's point of view.  And to have a winner.  We are all entitled to agree to disagree on just about anything.  Although if this is a spousal thing...a parental thing, sometimes it's fine to say "I don't agree with you but you're entitled to your opinion and I'm entitled to mine".

And then after that, what more could be said?  We've respected one another's point of view but simply don't agree on some issue.  We can still be friends...although for some people, if you don't agree
with them, will want to call it war.

I sort of think this takes maturity and understanding by one of the parties (if not both) or else this
need to win can easily escalate into stubborn behavior and worse, total disconnection.

If you think about it, there cannot be any points of view that everyone will always agree upon.  I often have to  say to a person "we are just different people, have different beliefs and that should be okay with both of us".

Sometimes you just have to teach someone to understand that we're not all thinking the same thoughts
because all of our thoughts and feelings (and points of view) are filtered through our different life experiences.

I agree with TJ. I get along with anyone who respects me...which I then also agree with Ribbit.  I have problems with O's understanding me. But is it me or do O's not really respect A's too much?  Lately, since I only my dad was AB, I've been having trouble figuring out a few AB's I know.  I get along well with other A's, and B's unless the B's are really stressed out then there's no communicating with them.  So I guess that means We all get along!

I never thought before how many blood types I interface with or am friends with so this thread got me to thinking.  As it turns out I have really good friends  covering all the blood types.  One of my very best friends is an O and we have had many adventures together and can laugh ourselves into hysterics sometimes.  My son-in-law is an O but has ADD.  He will jump into another subject with no introduction at all and I find I have to be quick to keep up with him but I'm glad I can.  My husband, who is an A, just gave up trying to keep up with our son-in-law's great leaps in conversation.  It's annoying to him.  One of my daughters-in-law is a B and we get along beautifully.  She is so friendly, outgoing, solicitous, with a wonderful sense of humor.  Funny thing is I have one particular friend who is a B and she absolutely wears me out.  She has to dot all her "i's" in each sentence and cross all her "t's" until I almost can't stand it anymore.  I guess I like to tune in so much with a comment here and there and I expect the same thing in return but no such luck with her.  She just keeps on track as if I have merely interrupted her until she has finished her story.  

I also have known a long time and am close with a couple of As.  My sisters are ABs as is my daughter and we are very close.  So, I'm thinking really that blood type is not the end-all for requisite of friendship.  I do recognize that Os, generally speaking, are more interested in mountain climbing than I am, or risk-taking sports.  I couldn't be married to someone like that.

Totally agree.  Someone wise said that the things you notice and don't like about other people are often traits you have yourself.

funny i love finding some one just like me becuse it happens so rarly. i am sort of an odd nut as far as i can tell. i get along with most people, though sometimes i have to look realy hard to find comon ground. i am not much of a people person how ever, my longest friendship was about 6yrs my marrage 5yrs. i even have to watch mom becuse to much time with her will drive us both nuts. limeted contact seems to be best for me. depressing isn't it? i seem to do best with letters becuse i am mostly a boring person and it takes me all year to do something that OTHER people will find intresting. i wonder if that is how people who study odd or obscure things in musems feel?

funny i love finding some one just like me becuse it happens so rarly. i am sort of an odd nut as far as i can tell. i get along with most people, though sometimes i have to look realy hard to find comon ground. i am not much of a people person how ever, my longest friendship was about 6yrs my marrage 5yrs. i even have to watch mom becuse to much time with her will drive us both nuts. limeted contact seems to be best for me. depressing isn't it? i seem to do best with letters becuse i am mostly a boring person and it takes me all year to do something that OTHER people will find intresting. i wonder if that is how people who study odd or obscure things in musems feel?

I agree with TJ. I get along with anyone who respects me...which I then also agree with Ribbit.  I have problems with O's understanding me. But is it me or do O's not really respect A's too much?  Lately, since I only my dad was AB, I've been having trouble figuring out a few AB's I know.  I get along well with other A's, and B's unless the B's are really stressed out then there's no communicating with them.  So I guess that means We all get along!  


I'm going to pipe in on this.  The majority in a 8 person office (1 doesn't know her blood type) are A's by one.  The other 3 are O's, we all get along great, my boss, I think is an O but not confirmed, will stop in every now & then & cause an uproar.  He has to be the center of attention & has possible manic depressive tendencies.

I chuckled at many of the posts, mostly because I could relate.  Ribbit, I totally agreed with your post with the exception of seeing it from the opposite point of view!  And I could see exactly what you meant!  
I have a very hard time communicating with A's.  I feel like they take my words, pure, innocent words, and twist them back at me until sometimes I have no idea what we are now talking about!
My husband is an A and I constantly have to say, "Whoa, whoa, whoa!  Wait!  Slow down.  Ok, now say it again and use pictures."
All of his analytical speech confuses my brain and I simply don't get it!  And on the flip side he's learned a great deal about practicality since being married to me!  He's done some pretty crazy things that I've had to shake my head at.
My closest friends are O's and B's.  Other than my husband, I have no close friend who is an A.  Acquaintances, but that's it.
However, I'd have to say that I get along with pretty much everyone.  

Leanne!

My husband, who is an A...One of my daughters-in-law is a B and we get along beautifully...I also have known a long time and am close with a couple of As.  My sisters are ABs as is my daughter and we are very close.  

     Funny for me since my wife is an A. I definitely have an affinity for A's- many, many close friends...I think they tolerate my talking well & like my shoot from the hip style. Some of my good friends and family are B's esp. my high school best friend, closest Uncle, & my Best Man College Roommate. I do have two B sibs that are in the wear-me-out category for different reasons. My Mother (very close) & Father were AB's and 3 of my children (one daughter esp. close) are too as well as my closest Aunt. O's seem to intimidate me & make me feel bad so I try to avoid or keep at a distance.

most of my friends are O or A don't know two many B and only one AB. I try to take the time to listen to them and understand where they are coming from I don't always get it right of course. I just hope they give me an E for effort.
I must however say BD is right neither of us are people people and many of my friends wear me out. I also seem to attract people who need to have me listen to their woes or life even when I lived in NJ and traveled by the tube to NYC complete unknowns would start talking about their lives.
However BD is anything but boring. She seems to be the only one who thinks that, that I know of

I'm sure it's a funny book. However, reading through these posts and looking at my own life experiences, people are people, there are good people that are easy to get along with and then there are other people (I like the people on this forum). I know very few Bs, really only one I can think of. I know two ABs and they are polar opposites. My daughter is an O and my other daughter is an A. Someone here said Os were risk takers? My A daughter is an off the charts risk taker, my O daughter is calm beyond calm. On the other hand my mother is an O and can spin circles around me. My dad was an A and was a quiet, calm engineer. My brother is an O and is a quiet calm engineer. See where I'm going? It's all fun and interesting, but I think you can spin the data to get any results you want ( I loved my statistics class, so cool how you can get any answer you want from any question you ask).

I come from a family of B's. My best friend(s) are AB and B. My former roommate was O. I cannot think of any A's that I know very closely.

B's ad AB's are so rare, I seem to be able to smell them. I immediately find the B / AB and make friends with them.

I wish I could make friends with a type A. My supervisor at work is an attractive woman who looks a bit like GT3 or GT5. She is a slim, I would dare say svelte, brunette. She is very Jewish looking, something I tend to think is sexy. Her name is Jewish also. I think I will ask her if she could start sexually harassing me soon...  

O's are not risk takers - no, I would say that we are very purposeful, calm and thorough in what we do, but we are prone to being lethargic at times. We need heroic goals to get motivated. At least I am that way.

My roommate is a GT1, a hunter. He works as a male model. Women go psycho for him. They typically hate me, because I have bonded with him in a way they never will. Women are like tissue paper to him, totally disposable. They service his lusts and he dumps them when convenient. His rule - they pay for everything.

He is O like me, but he absolutely must be the center of attention at all points of time. I tend to be more the gentleman, while he is the player.

Funny thing is, before he became a "model" he was totally into this bar tender at the bar down the street. He just craved her attention, but she saw him with these other women that he took to the bar, and would not go for him. Later, he goes to a modeling shoot, and she is the woman model, he the man! Ha ha. She still would not go out with him. That was funny. That after having to act romantic around her, holding her by the waist... laughing into the camera... ha ha ha.

Well... Being an A and a Warrior I can attest to the things people are saying about me! lol

Yes yes... too sensitive, blah blah, takes things personally when they aren't meant to be that way, I'm elusive and somewhat a hermit.

Saying that though... People either really love me and love me for life or just don't have anything to do with me. I love people fiercely, passionately and will everything that I am and forgive and forget a lot more than I should.

With each blood type there are upside and downsides.

I find O's to be rather unintuitive and as Massage Therapists or energy healers, less effective than A's due to this factor. They are really good at business though and last a lot longer in those careers because they are better at making money than A's are. I feel bad asking people for money. It took me years to finally be able to charge what I was really worth. I do pour my whole self into taking care of people. Which makes me burn out way quicker than an O.

B's to me seem to hold all their anger in until they explode. Their happiness all the time makes me sick cause I can tell there is something lurking underneath. lol But they are hard working and if you want something done really well... ask a B to do it. It might not be done until next year, but it will be perfect!

AB's are crazy! I can say that because everyone in my family but me is an AB. Except for my Dad (A) and Stepdad (B). They are more eccentric than A's, have a harder time holding a job and sticking to anythings. Not generally good at finishing anything. But they love to start new projects.

Now that I've offended all the blood types except mine... lol yep, see... told you! I'm totally an A!!! And a Warrior! tee hee

Pigeon holing all blood types is like following a horoscope. Yes you might find some truth in it, but truth is found by anyone searching for it. That's just how it works.

My good friends (who know their blood type) are mostly Os and As.

Interesting, as the Japanese compatibility charts say the Os get along best with Os and ABs.

What I meant about B's is that they hold onto issues and than explode. If they are mad you can read it on their face. They are bad at hiding their emotions when they are right about to explode.

But no one is ever totally one way. None of us can be pigeon holed into being just like someone else just because their blood type is the same as ours. I won't say that there aren't certain similarities though.

My new husband is an O and our relationship is way different than my 1st marriage. He likes to touch and be touched. My ex husband is an A. We never touched or cuddled on the couch. During 10 years of marriages never anything touchy like I have now.  

Lots of chatting though. Lots more talking. This helped me to develop a better vocabulary and feel o.k. with expressing my thoughts.  

but now I can get down to the good stuff...cuddling on the couch.  

I can tell people's blood types by hugging them. The information comes through my senses. O's warm comfy, B's are neutral for me, and A's are chilly. I love all people who give me respect and I do the same. I have one O sister, I am a B, and my other sister is an A. We all have the same mom.

Well, being an A and being nothing like the A's you are reporting about I thought I'd let you know. I'm a Massage Therapist, very touchy feely. I'm warm, affectionate, cuddly and really love love love people. It's interesting to hear how people are seeing each blood type differently just by only knowing certain people with those blood types and knowing those peoples characteristics. I have on the other hand been married to an O previously and found him to be non cuddly and cold. All the guys I have dated after, some were O's and some were A's. I found the A's to be more affectionate and cuddly than the O's were. With the O's I'd have to initiate it. Which is totally not a problem for me! *wink wink* lol

I agree with  christaalyssaA+ and cajun stephina, this just shows me that personality may not be linked to the allele for blood type. I love to be affectionate with someone I trust.

These are all only personal stories, there is no real science or evidence to back them up. Personally I resent being grouped into a certain personality category just by my blood type. I wonder how things would break down if you compared blood type with the Meyers-Briggs tests. I'm an INFP.

I think such conclusions need to be done after a lot of experience with many people from different genotypes. When a young person does such conclusions, it can mislead them.

But for a guide to ascertain how you should get along with whom, I think astrology can help.

Generally, I'm just attracted to kind, considerate people and it makes no difference to me what their blood types are.  I can pretty much get along with anyone, although I will not always make the effort to become friendly or stay friendly with truly difficult people.

My two best friends are type O.

I find it difficult to get along with people who won't take me seriously, or who insist on using vulgar language in my presence (even after making my feelings known).  Just about anyone who is respectful and wants to get along with me will have no trouble doing so.  Unfortunately, some people thrive on conflict.

I am chilly when it comes to touchy touch. Was hard when I moved to Quebec. When encountering someone, a hug and two kisses. I do however love a good massage. I thought it was from my upbringing that made me this way. I am however a warm person and too forgiving. Takes allot for me to trust people though. Am somewhat of a loner. But I like it. Like my own company. My husband is an O and a loner as well but we are a good match. Together for 22 years.

yeah... I was just trying to be funny. I do NOT believe it is totally related. It was a gross oversimplification on my part to say that! ha ha. I knew it would spark some interest.

Truth be told, I have a whole family of A's in Ohio, a whole side of my family of O's in Arkansas, and a whole family of B's here in Texas.

Each one of these people are sooo unique and different and each one of them likes to be hugged (that I know of)!

I would LOVE to hug all of you A's who posted who like to be hugged.

I do get along with anyone if he/she is a respectful person. Blood type really has nothing to do with it.

I've never connected "love languages" with blood type.  Doing a quick scan in my brain I'm seeing no similarity.
Not sure how many have ever read the "Five Languages of Love" by Gary Chapman.  If you haven't, do.  It will greatly help you in working with people and just knowing what they need.

I'm an O and the most non-touchiest person you'll ever meet, some have considered me down right cold, mostly when I was a teen.  I can count on one hand the number of people I let close to me.  Anyone else I hug merely out of duty.

The five "love languages" are:
Words of affirmation - they like compliments - thrive on it - if they don't get it they don't feel loved
Acts of service - they like things being done for them - if a women, vacuum her floor - if a man, wash his car, etc.

Gifts - pretty self-explanatory, if a women, stop on the side of the road and bring her home a few wild flowers, if a man, bring him a key chain

Touch - a no brainer

Quality time - these kinds of people can sit in the same room with you, not say a word for an hour, yet feel loved.  

Anyhow, those are the 5.  I'm "words of affirmation" and my husband is "acts of service".  No, I don't wash his car but I have always fixed his plate and made sure that it was seasoned to his taste.  Before kids I would set out his clothes for him to wear to church.  I'm not really able to do that anymore, time wise, but eventually I'll likely do it again.
One of my sisters is "acts of service" as well.  I'd vacuum for her if I went to her house and I always refilled her little tea container without her knowing it.  She always called me up thrilled!  That little action made her feel on top of the world.

I have other friends who are touch.  As I already mentioned I HATE touch!  And it's typically those people who stand in your face to talk to you.  You take a step back and before you know it you're ten feet from where you began your conversation!  It would drive me nuts!  
After reading this book I realized that those people are language of touch.  If I just stood still then everything was fine.  I had to force myself at first because I absolutely hated the closeness and felt almost claustrophobic but I'm OK with it now.  And if I know that they are touch and it's a man (I don't feel comfortable going around hugging men) I'll pat them on the arm and let them know that I'm glad to see them.  It's just enough physical contact that let them know I appreciated them.

Anyhow, that's it in a nut shell.  I could go on but if you all are like me you don't really have time to read EVERY post so you skim.  But I would be interested in knowing if any of you know what your "love language" might be.

My DH and I read the book....we are both " touch" AND both " words"! Both of our scores were split nearly in half! I think I was a little more touch and he was a little more words but I know the scores were just about the same. We were surprised but, we have known each other since we were 11 years old! I don't know how much any of this has to do with it but we both came from very affectionate families.
My hubby is O pos.
I am A pos.

I find I get along with anyone who is honest with themselve and others, in other words, they feel good about themselves and don't have to always live a lie, put up a front, or use their money to define who they are.  Butt kissing i believe is a sin, unless they deserve it!  I think there are douche bags of every blood type, genotype, creed, or color.  There are also great people of every blood type, genotype, creed, and color.
And i feel they can all bring something unique to the table.  I like d'adamo's comparison to 6 genotypes being like 6 different tractor models.

Within group variation is often higher than between group variation.  So a group of hunters may vary more amongst each other than when compared with other genotypes.  It is a good general way to know about yourself, but it shouldn't be used to make complete judgements about others.
