Ever wonder what is up with all the blood types in celebrity bios and anime?Well, apparently in Japan blood type affects personality.

The bigger problem, though, and the one Nawata is troubled by, is companies in Japan asking about applicants’ blood types during job interviews, something the professor calls “Blood Type Harassment.” ▼ Nawata, along with a team of economic researchers, conducted a survey of more than 10,000 people in Japan and the U. Participants were asked for their attitudes regarding a total of 68 statements, such as “I leave fun things for later on,” and “People shouldn’t gamble.” Sawata then sifted through their responses to look for statistical discrepancies between respondents with different blood types.
The results were published in June in the journal of the Japanese Psychological Association.
Likewise, Osaka’s Labor Bureau has asked certain companies to stop asking job-seekers for their blood type on applications.
