People of blood type O are considered universal donors because they can give blood to all other blood groups, but they can only receive blood from people with the same blood type.
But, it’s not because of this that blood type O is considered unique. The thing is your blood type has some unique properties that make you really special and different from the others. On one hand, you’re more susceptible to certain diseases. On the other hand, you’re also a born leader, one who’s extremely energetic and always focused on your goals, not yielding to anything to steer you away from your chosen path. It’s because of these unique characteristics that you’re a special person – one everyone likes to have around.
People who are blood type O are more prone to developing ulcers, thyroid dysfunction, low levels of thyroid hormones and iodine deficiency. These dysfunctions may cause further health complications such as excess body weight and water retention.
In Japan, this blood type has long been linked to a unique type of personality. You may even be asked about your blood type when interviewing for a job! People of blood type O are generally described as responsible, committed, organized, focused, conscientious and practical. It is believed that they have great orientation skills and are extremely good logicians. It is believed that it comes from the fact that their ancestors were hunters who had to observe and accurately evaluate the environment to be able to survive.
Hyperactive and impulsive
If you’re blood type is O, you’re probably hyperactive and impulsive when under stress. You can also easily get irritated in such a situation. This higher sensitivity in a combination with an unhealthy diet and a more sedimentary lifestyle make you more prone to the harmful metabolic processes, such as insulin resistance, slower thyroid activity and weight gain. Moreover, they have increased amounts of stomach acids which leads to a more sensitive stomach and eventually ulcer formation.
If you are blood group O, you should stay away from caffeine and alcohol. Caffeine can be particularly harmful as it raises the level of adrenaline, which is already high in people of blood type O. Regular exercise of at least 3-4 times a day is highly recommended.
