Type B dominates Japan's Male Figure Skating

I found an article that there are many Type Bs in male figure skating, so I tried special certified athletes over the past 10 years.

Certainly, I found 7 male B athletes out of all the 13 boys -- a majority.
The probability this happens by chance is less than 3%.
With just 10 people of data, this is really a "miraculous" event!
So, at least for the last decade, it is clear that Type B dominates men's figure skating.

Men Certified Athletes 2009-2018

Slobodan Petrovski: ABO system of blood types and positions in soccer team

Chieko Ichikawa and Slobodan Petrovski

Perhaps the very first English book with theme of blood types and soccer. The authors, Chieko Ichikawa (Japanese, the director of the Human Science ABO Center) and Slobodan Petrovski (Servian, a manager of sport), in an analytical way, give a relation between blood types and positions in soccer team.


Which Type is Strong against Influenza?

According to Dr. Peter J. D'adamo, Blood types O and A are strong against influenza A, but blood type B is strong against influenza B. Sadly, blood type AB is weak against both influenza A and B.


Richest Persons are All Type O - Forbes' World's Billionaires 2018

Examining the billionaires' blood type (top to No. 10) of Forbes' "the world's billionaires 2018", they are all Type O, both in the world and Japan.

As expected, O is good at making money.
However, this only shows a "trend" since the blood type of the majority is unknown.

No. 2 Bill Gates / $90 billion (Microsoft)
No. 3 Warren Buffett / $84 billion (Berkshire Hathaway)
No. 4 Mark Zuckerberg / $71 billion (Facebook)

No. 1 Masayoshi Son / $21.9 billion (Softbank)
No. 2 Tadashi Yanai / $19.3 billion (Fast Retailing)
No. 7 Hiroshi Mikitani / $5.4 billion dollars (Rakuten)
No. 9 Akio Nitori / $4.8 billion (Nitori)


Japanese Prime Minster Abe Reshuffled His Cabinet

On October 2, Prime Minster Abe Reshuffled His Cabinet.

Blood Type: O9, A7, B4, AB0.
O almost doubles while B decreases; AB became zero.
It may be because the reshuffle aimed at factional balance rather than policy - as many as twelve new cabinet members were appointed.


Mr. Yoshiaki Murakami, known as a "lifelong investor", is Type AB.

Mr. Yoshiaki Murakami, a Japanese, known as a "lifelong investor", is Type AB.

Source: Stock for Everyone (in Japanese) 

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.

Source: The Economist (May 5, 2018)

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".

Source: Promotion on Nikkei Newspaper (September 15, 2018)
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.


Korean Study: Preferences of Web-based OPAC Retrieval Techniques

College Students' Preferences of Web-based OPAC Retrieval Techniques and their Blood Types: An Empirical Study

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science v.44 no.3, 2010, pp.81 - 102

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.


President George Washington is Type B

The Asahi Shimbun, a major Japanese newspaper, said that George Washington, the first US president is Type B on an article July 9, 1975.
Dr. Mitsuo Yokoyama in Illinois Medical Center analyzed Washington's one-inch long hair and found the fact, the article said.
The following is a tweet of Dr. Atsushi Oshio,  a Japanese psychologist. He is a professor of Waseda University.

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.

Type B is less likely to vote and doesn't choose the biggest party

Type B is not only less likely to vote but doesn't choose the biggest party, at least in Korea.
Please refer to the following paper.

ABO Blood Types and Voting Behaviors in the 2008 Election : A Pilot Genetic Study of Political Behaviors
Kim Chae-Han
Vol.1 No.2 (Wn.2), 2008.10, 157-180 (24 pages)

Political attitudes and behaviors have been explained by non-genetic variables. Some recent studies related genetic characteristics to political behaviors. Using a very simple variable of ABO blood types, instead of expensive research design, this paper explains Koreans voting behaviors in the 2008 National Assembly election. Voters of B blood type were less likely to participate in the election and to choose the biggest party (Grand National Party)'s candidates than any other blood type voters. Such genetic factors as ABO blood types may contribute to the study of Korean voting behaviors.
