I’m an A+. What about you?
I’m talking about blood type, of course. Let’s do a quick survey now to see how the types are distributed among my readers!

(I’m ignoring the + and – to keep things simple. Don’t complain.)
Did you also know that you can tell someone’s personality by their blood type? I found a web page listing some general characteristics. Here are some excerpts from it:
People with blood type A have a deep-rooted strength that helps them stay calm in a crisis when everyone else is panicking. However, they tend to avoid confrontation, and feel very uncomfortable around people. A types are shy and sometimes withdrawn. They seek harmony and are very polite, but all the same feel that they never really fit in with others. A types are very responsible. If there is a job to be done, they prefer to take care of it themselves. These people crave success and are perfectionists. They are also very creative, and the most artistic of all the blood types, most likely because of their sensitivity.
People with blood type B are the most practical of the blood groups. They are specialists in what they do. When they start a project, they spend extra time understanding and trying to follow directions than others might. When they are doing something, all of their attention is focused on it. They tend to stick to a goal and follow it through to the end, even if it seems impossible. They tend to be less than cooperative, as they like to follow their own rules and their own ideas. They are individualists. B type people pay attention to their thoughts a little more than their feelings, and therefore can sometimes seem cold and serious.
People with blood type AB are hard to categorize. They can have characteristics on both ends of the spectrum at the same time. For instance, they are both shy and outgoing. They easily switch from one opposite to another. AB people are trustworthy and responsible, but can’t handle it when too much is asked of them. They don’t mind doing favors or helping out, as long as its on their own conditions. People with this blood type are interested in art and metaphysics.
People with blood type O people are outgoing, energetic and social. They are the most flexible of the blood types. They easily start up projects but often have trouble following through because they give up easily. They are flighty and not too dependable. O types always say what’s on their mind. They value the opinion of others and like to be the center of attention. Also, people with O blood are extremely self-confident.
You’re now probably wondering where I’m going with this. Nowhere funky, if that’s what you’re thinking. I just wanted to get you all excited about Singapore’s First Blogger Blood Drive, happening on November 29, 2008 at the Bloodbank at HSA!
Do consider signing up for it because your blood could help save a life (or up to three lives, in fact). You might even meet a cute blogger chick or a hot blogger dude at the event. Ask ‘em, “Are you my type?” without getting a weird stare in return! (Results not guaranteed.)
You can get involved by joining the Facebook group for this event.
Members will be able to get updates and talk about types and blood and whatever, and make friends, or even organise your own small groups to attend the event together!
Also, check out the microsite hosted by Nuffnang, which teases us by releasing info in phases. Three phases have been released. I wonder what’s going in the last empty grey slot. Well, bookmark the site and check back often to find out!
So… are you my type?
