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!!)   ;D ;D

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. ;D

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? ;) ;D

Dr. D talks a bit about As alone time being a prime need.  And how yoga is good for As.  I am in sales (have been for 20+ years) and I think I gravitate to it as I think if it as work... I have continued to get better at it over the years and I like to think my natural talents continue to improve with less work on my part while the work talents improve through/with my work!  :-)  Hope this helps your perspective if you are not in a job with as much alone time as you might like!

Hi,
Are you an A? You can choose an avatar for your blood type in your Member Center.  :)
I work as a medical secretary.. being pulled in 10 different directions often.  I was in Budget and I made a big mistake and bid out of my department because my director got fired and I thought they were going to lay me off and ...and I panicked and bid on a secretary job in Pediatrics.
I was then stuck. I got type cast as a secretary and I couldn't get back into budget. BIG mistake..and very angry at myself for panicking. I jumped out of the frying pan into the fire. Now I'm really stuck because the university keeps having layoffs and I need to keep my job.

I agree totally. I have to have my alone time ...it's the most important thing to me to handle my stress.  I can't do a job where there'd be 8 hours of constant interaction with people. B's are good for that.. they are so social. My B son is Mr. Social Butterfly...  My O son is social as well, but he knows his priorities..  B son puts his friends first ... too much.

I hope you are taking advantage of the working at a university benefit and taking classes!  
Stay in school!  Best advice I can give while also seeking funding for my own.  As an employee they are usually free (part of your standard benefits and not like other companies where you have to pay back the benefit if you leave or they let you go) Plus, when/if you are taking classes they will see you as trying to improve yourself and stop type casting you and/or keep you during next lay off round (if there is one)!  Make the you you want to be!  :-)

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!!!

:) 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.

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'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
