We’ve all hopefully encountered an individual or witnessed someone of excellence whether it is Wayne Gretzky or Warrant Buffet and simply remarked, “it’s in their blood”. There is something in the
ir DNA that makes them who they are. Right? Well, as it turns out – there may actually be a correlation!
Recently a friend shared with me the concept of eating for your blood type. As it just so happened we both discovered that we share the same rare blood type known as B+. The conversation eventually led to reviewing the research of Dr. D’Adamo who is a well published authority around how to feed your body for your blood type. Apparently I’m not supposed to eat chicken as often as I do which single handedly almost resulted in my loss of interest and abandonment of an otherwise interesting subject.
Our blood types have a lot to do with our origins and descendants way of life. Well duh right? Why wouldn’t they correlate but where the research gets interesting is how we still utilize those basic characteristics in different facets of our life. Here is an excert around Type B personalities that explores these characteristics further, “ Dr. D’Adamo found that most Blood Type B’s often described themselves in ways related to the following characteristics: subjective, easygoing, creative, original and flexible. In another study, Type B’s scored significantly higher on “intuiting,” indicating a preference or sixth sense information; and they scored high on the “intuiting/feeling” combination, indicating that they tend to be insightful, mystical, idealistic, creative, globally-oriented, people-oriented and good at imagining. They also reported that they learned best through listening, then reflecting on and interpreting what they had observed. Perhaps the nomadic life of the steppes contributed to long hours given over to talk as well as ample time for meditation and reflection.
So what’s in your blood? Are we often fighting hundreds and thousands of years of DNA structure by doing some of things we do, eating what we shouldn’t, and ultimately fighting who we are supposed to be?
P.S. A notable statistic: while Type B blood constitutes only 9 percent of the United States population, some 30 to 40 percent of all self-made millionaires are Type B.
