Quoted from mzunforgettable
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 am a CAREER COUNSELOR, and I always analyze my clients.. curious about what there bloodtypes are. One thing I have learned is that as I follow GTD, I can see my hunter characteristics revealed more often. On the other hand, I do think other factors play a role in careers.

I am striving to obtain a career in college athletics working with student athletes with disabilities. This is my passion, and the athletic field is what drives me towards success. Also, I love helping others maximize their potential and academic succes.. does this resonate with o's and hunters?

I find this topic very fascinating as well. Would love to see the work for your type book!!!

The Japanese think of Bs as "lazy".  What kind of job would be a good fit for a lazy person???  I am definitely NOT lazy!  If anything, I could use a little more laziness to keep me from overextending myself.

Ok, rant over.

Funny you say you are type cast though while you write on a typing site!  ;-p  Make the type cast you want people to cast as your type!    


I must be haunted by the word "type" lol...   Just an FYI, I am going to be 55 years old. I raised two sons.. 19 and 21 years old who I'm trying to get through college.   I tried to go back to school when they were babies and I was so stressed out being a new mom..not knowing what I was doing...I got about 18 credits then I had to stop..and go back to work.  Being an A..we are not good with stress. I waited until they were grown to go back to school for my own personal satisfaction. I'm now up to 21 credits.  I applied to a state run graduate school for FASFA and I'll find out if I can afford it in June for the Fall. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

TJ, lazy folks tend to make good engineers.  We design gadgets and algorithms to eliminate the tedium of daily chores.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

That's not lazy, that's working smart.

Seriously, workaholism is what brought on my 2006 burnout!  I think some people thought I was being lazy, but in light of how much energy I had to give to what I was doing, they were way off.

Gettin' there..    I think you hit my nerve that had to do with trying to get out of the current job I was in ..for years..  I've been going to college off an on and I'm getting there...slowly. So I took out my anger on you when really I'm angry at myself.. oops.
Oooh I had no idea Ooops!! Sometimes I just gotta shut my mouth Thanks though for the chance to get to know you more, MF & for your vulnerability I guess that is one good thing to come outa this eh?

Sometimes that Aussie/NZ sense of humour is funny to me/us but not to different ppl... I guess I really could do with being more sensitive but as a nationality we take the piss out of ourselves & others...& don't take ourselves too seriously

Quoted from mzunforgettable
I started this post so I feel a bit responsible.  I agree with correcting grammar in general, but I think grammar can be extremely touchy as they might yet not heard the correct way.  (Not saying you MF) So when you might think you are joking, the grammatical offender might not see the humor and you could appear harsh.  I agree with the other post -> do you really want to appear harsh to a warrior?!?!

I try to just correct with no emotion and leave humor to puns as puns are safe!    I confess, I joke about myself a bit also, but I can only blame myself for those.    

p.s.  I love NZ - One of my favourite places to live!  
Nah you are not responsible - I am big enough, & ugly enough to take responsibility for myself

Using blood type alone does not reveal the intricate nature of personality.  Remember your within groups and between groups principles you learned in school and apply it to blood types.

There is much more variation within members of blood type O in personality than between the group blood type O and another blood type.

Same with all blood types.

I love the genotype/blood type personality thing though.  I am a mental health counselor and keep it in my mind when i work with clients and patients.  I work in an inpatient psych. hospital where things always move and change, not too slow not too fast.

I love it!!  I used to job hop every 6 mths to a year out of pure boredom!  So I identify with Narnia!

I'm self employed and work from home because of all of my environmental sensitivites. This was a priority back in the mid 90's for me before I even knew about LR.

I can't deal with work lately--- just totally burned out.  Not sure who I want to be or what I want to do anymore.  20 years of hobbies, dysfunctional work choices & general boredom have taken over my life.  I'll likely day job my way out of it & start doing some of the hobby stuff online for fun.  Oh yeah right.  I'm sooooo exhausted--- all I want to do is sleep, exercise & eat. I think I might have adrenal burn out.

Sahara,

Whew!!!  I really had to contemplate if and how to respond to your post because that is exactly where I was 6 months ago.  

Caveat:  My response is not to encourage or discourage your actions as far as your present job is concerned.  But it is to take seriously why you have posted it and how you can take some steps to change your situation so that it suits you better. Even a baby step is better than nothing if you're at this present juncture.

I left my job of four years and did exactly what you say you want to do:  sleep, eat well, and exercise.  It took me about two months to get my sleep pattern back to normal.  I went overboard somewhat foodwise but always went back to the BTD way because that is the road to health.  I looked and felt better than I had in a long time and people commented on that.

All well and good.  I ran into a friend from work a few weeks ago and I found myself saying that now I am in another routine.  Yes, a better one for me overall but a routine nonetheless.

I am an A and I need challenges.   I am very mentally oriented.  It was very tiring to keep myself mentally shut down.  It took its toll in what seems like dermatitis on my left leg and ankle but may be something more internal.

I did go to a basic course for starting your own business only the business I wanted to start would need handmade inventory made by me.  Now I like my hobby as its been but to make it a business is something else.  

What I'm trying to relate is "do your homework" now.  Keep money coming in that's only practical.  Try to get a few of your hobbies online to sell and see where it goes.  Push yourself but in the right direction.  If it doesn't work out, so what.   Cut your emotional losses as soon as possbile and get out of the "I failed or I can't do it" quagmire. No one is testing you.  It's not going to be comfortable all the time or easy but it will be moving you in the right direction.  You do not have to justify yourself to anyone but you.

If I were 40 again and someone said that to me I hope I could hear what I needed and move ahead.

Good luck.

Joy
