Dr. D just begins to discuss the psychology of the blood types in the Live Right book and touches on Japan's employer methods of testing people to ensure they are correct fit for a job.  Of course with US EEOC laws not allowing genetic discrimination, I doubt such testing would ever be approved in America by employers, but with my psychology background I am interested in helping people (including myself) get into the best/healthiest careers.  What are your thoughts about such testing and counseling in America?  Have you read more about any such career counseling going on in America currently?  Or other counties?  If so, please share where to find/read more.  Possibly Dr. D can write a Work Right book next?  Thank you!

I'm also a psych major.  Maybe you should try the Holland personality system?  It's especially designed for career choice.

There are way too many factors in personalities and competencies to make a pick based on blood type, but perhaps it could be considered as one factor among many others.

I am familiar with the psych career tests out there.  I was really trying to get a discussion going about the comment Dr. D makes in Live Right about the Japanese blood testing/typing for jobs. Thanks!

Given the Genotype - MBTI correspondence, I doubt that using solely ABO typing to be of empirical use.  This seemed to be the point of what Dr. D' Adamo has had to say on the Japanese phenomenon.  

B O and AB have home triangles in the MBTI-space ( 4 dimensional, don't ya know!) , but A is strung out too far.  What would be interesting is a Geno-space cube with the MBTI 16 points located at intervals.

If you want to get further ahead with epigenetically aware career counseling we need enough Swami-style biometrics included MBTI or Hollad code studies.  You might as well wait for a cold day in hell ...

I, too, am a psych. major.  I agree...I think that SWAMI really helps in this regard.  It takes the  BT, GT and the Meyers Briggs in combination.

I'm an Explorer and it seems to fit my work patterns well.  I don't like staying with one occupation for very long.  I am always exploring new careers.  I can do many different things well, so I don't like to spend my life on one thing.  There are other abilities and careers to explore!!

climb very mountain!!!  Ford every stream!!!  Follow every rainbow, till you find your dream!!!  (Must have been written by an explorer!!)  

Therefore, I have had 5+ different careers and am still wanting to try others!!  I am currently self-employed and couldn't dream of being employed by anyone and being held down by their hours and regulations.  I have to be free to EXPLORE!!!

Perhaps you can do a study based on SWAMI factors and corresponding careers that the people have chosen, their satisfaction levels in their careers, what they wish they had chosen, etc.  YOU could write such a book.  Incorporate Japanese knowledge in this area...  And write a book, sort of like "What Color is Your Parachute," to add to the career counseling arsenal.  What do you think?

I sure can relate.  I've worked in agriculture, fast food and short order food, delivery, retail (as a cashier, stocker, customer service person, and in-store market/signage), commission sales, data entry, collection, banking, accounting, auto maintenance, construction, receiving, construction material sales, cleaning out foreclosed/evicted homes, and I just started a job cleaning windows and carpet.  I also did volunteer ministry work.  I still don't know just what I want to do, but I am getting there.  I have another thread about all that, though.

freedom is a good thing. all the paths we took lead us to who are and who we become is who we are meant to be. at any moment, you can choose differently and start taking steps in a new direction. what is probably necessary for most people is internal evaluation and tuning out the external noise. you already know, you know?

It's not so much about WHAT we do but how we feel about what we are doing and WHY we do it.

Mayflowers,
The comment was in direct response to the use of "went" in the statement that you made.  The proper word for the context would have been "gone".
