He founded the Murakami Fund, and became infamous by the "riot" of Nippon Broadcasting System's buying up some ten years ago, and was evertually arrested in 2006 as a result of suspected insider trading.
Listening to his interview, although his logic may be correct, you might be impressed by his cruel and rude personality, thereby receive the impression of "bad guy".

Later, he left Japan and moved his base to Singapore.
Recently, however, Mr. Murakami's reputation has been soaring and his two books "Lifelong Investors" and "Stories of Money I Want to Tell Now" became one of the bestsellers here in Japan.

The opposite of this is Type O Softbank president, Mr. Masayoshi Son.
Recently, you might remember that he has raised the 10 trillion yen fund scheme and the cover illustration of the leading economic magazine "The Economist" in the UK.

Mr. Murakami is not much the same as people like Mr. Masayoshi Son, who has unlimited business appetite, romance toward the future, or "aura" which is often seen on successful business muguls.
He judges rationally based on many numbers. He seems to be enjoying investing like a "hobby".

One of the features of Type AB type is that AB insists on nothing, but analyzes data objectively and rationally.
Such a trend is typically seen in his new book "Stories of Money I Want to Tell Now".

There is no shortcut to increase money or magic. Only one.
Replacing things with numbers,
Think with the formula (expected value = profitable probability).
Be familiar with numbers from small things, memorize with numbers,
Repeat exercises to think with numbers.
It is very important to become good at numbers.
I has been a friend of money for 50 years.
This is the absolute and the only way I believe.

It is likely that the raise of the "Murakami Fund" was aimed at realizing "rationality" and "justice" which are commonly seen in Type AB.

Type AB who gives priority to rational judgment and dislikes stubborn human relations, is thereby weak in emotional connection and is unlikely seems as a "nice guy".
I can not deny that those eventually strengthened Murakami's "villain" impression.

As the times change and globalization of the economy progresses more and more, rational thinking like Mr. Murakami is becoming necessary especially in Japan.
In that sense, he may have been ahead of the times -- a little.

Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to investigate college students' preferences of Web-based OPAC retrieval techniques and their ABO blood types as an empirical survey. Data was collected through a self-designed questionnaire with a total of 101 undergraduate students from the College of Social Sciences responding. The collected data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, and One-way ANOVA. The results show that 'title' was most preferred among the access points, 'AND' was the most preferred Boolean operator, 'publication year' and 'subject' were the most favored techniques in limiting the scope of retrieval, and 'record number limit per page' was the most frequently used for displaying retrieval results. The results also show that there were little(3 out of 22, i.e. 13.6%) statistically significant differences between the college students' preferences of Web-based OPAC techniques and their blood type.

According to Canadian researchers, newly discovered enzymes can transform blood type, such as type A to O.

So, does the personality also change?
The ABO blood group substance is most frequently expressed in the stomach and intestines, and it is distributed not only in the body but also in most of the body.
Even if the blood type of erythrocyte changes, the blood type of the brain and nerve does not change - as it is.
This is the same with bone marrow transplantation.

Type O people are heavy drinkers: Blood type and personality are related by Satoshi Komori

Here is a new kindle book (in Japanese) by Toshi Komori who retired from Toshiba and entered the graduate school of Tokyo University.


The followings are excerpts from Amazon.co.jp.

Personality and blood type are definitely related.
However, the definition of the word "related" as used here means that "there is a certain probability that a certain blood type and the person's personality are more likely to be a mire random variation of a certain person." It does not necessarily mean having one-on-one relationship.
Looking at the ten or more Olympic 100-meter finals, I feel that there are many black athletes are good at short tracks, because  all most all of them are black people.
However, in some places in the world, if black people and those who are not compete, you may not get significant differences of the data.
The relationship between blood type and personality is very similar. Comparing the blood type and personality common to Jomon people [native Japanese], the blood type and personality that is more common among Yayoi people [immigrant Japanese around 1500-2000 years ago], it is obvious that the probability that the current Japanese personality has a certain blood type together is greater than the accidental variation.
In this book, I would like to talk about the reasons why the difference in blood type is large, and that the genes with strong alcohol are also different from region to region, and to talk about the relationship between blood type and personality.
