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.

Japanese Love Type B Female!?

The blood type of popular female talents had changed around 2010.
Type B (Orange) had made a big reversal of A type (blue).
It seems that the popularity of Type B continues even now.

O. J. Simpson is Type A

I find an article of "Stripes Okinawa" (Stars and Stripes) on blood type and personality.


This article is written with a light touch, so you can enjoy it.
The compatibility between type A and type B is said to be bad.  In fact, the author of this article is Type A and his wife is Type B, it doesn't matter because the couple has been satisfied for 25 years (laugh).
FYI, according to the article, O. J. Simpson is Type A.

Blood type prediction with AI: accuracy rate is 42%

Excerpts from Masayuki Kanazawa's book "Blood Type and Personality 3.0"


I tried to predict the blood type using AI technology (Amazon AWS S3 + ML) on a trial basis. The results: each accuracy rate is 42%. This is a little lower than expected. But if it is going like this, the accuracy rate may exceed 50%, I hope.
By the way, in the second trial (No.2), I misplaced the learning data settings and used little data of women in their thirties, at the begin-ning. After I corrected the settings to use all the data, the accuracy rate has greatly improved by 5-10%.
This may have proved that the characteristic of the blood type changes considerably with gender and age.
Next time, I am going to modify the model and try again.
