Relationship between brain activity and blood types -- through experiments
https://human-abo.blogspot.jp/2017/05/blog-post_24.html (in Japanese)

was posted on May 24.

The ABO Center and Dr. Munetaka Haida (Tokai University) have collaborated on experiments about relationship between brain function and blood types for over 10 years.
According to the article, in experiments using a "optical topography device" to measure the activity of the brain, comparing Type A and Type B, the workings of the left brain and the right brain show a spectacular contrast.

Type A = activity amount of left brain is high
Type B = activity amount of right brain is high

Also, there was somewhat less clear difference between Type AB and Type O;

Type AB = using both right and left brains simultaneously
Type O  = using both right and left brains alternatively

From these results, it is almost certainly possible to say that "brain activity and blood types are related to each other."
However, it may be a exaggeration to say that blood types and personality are "scientific" grounds. Still, it can be said that it is a powerful experimental result that is one step closer to the truth.

Yet Another Bloodtype-Personality TV Program

Story:
Personality judgment by blood type has deeply penetrated daily life in Japan. It is said that there are places that emphasize on blood type at company recruitment and marriage consultation office. Is blood type and personality scientifically related? Is it only Japanese people to be addicted to blood types so much? I think about the disposition of the Japanese who love typing.

Type B people live longer!?

According to Tamao Endo, Ph.D. - vice-director (biology and medical Sciences) of Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Gerontology, Type B people are thought to live longer.
In his recent research "Search for biomarkers of successful aging through glycomics and glycoproteomics of semisuper centenarians" which was conducted from 2012-2013, he wrote:
As the ABO blood group system materials are consists of sugar chains, the possibility that type B is associated with longevity was suggested. (Hirose, N. et al. Exp. Gerontol. 39, 1563-1565, 2004, article of study cooperator Hirose)

US Presidential Election: Hillary AB vs Trump A

Hillary Clinton &  Bernard Sanders are Type AB-
But when it became known that Hillary was blood type AB negative, like less than 1 percent of the population, Sanders stepped up. In an amazing coincidence he, too, was AB negative, his kidney was a match, and he, too, was in Las Vegas.

Apple's Tim Cook is Type O

Steve Jobs was Type O (minus, probably).
Tim Cook is said to be the same blood type, so he must be Type O.

Apple's Tim Cook offered liver to dying boss Steve Jobs - BBC.com
Mr Cook found out that he, like Steve Jobs, had a rare blood type, and guessed that it might be the same.
According to the book, he went through a series of tests and discovered that a partial liver transplant was feasible.
