What's your bloodtype?" Now there's a chat-up line I bet you haven't heard too often!

In the West we often ask people their star sign, and jokingly think that we can tell something about their personality from their sign. So a Leo is courageous, a Taurean is stubborn etc...

In Japan, they follow the Chinese Zodiac so that's not really an option, since everyone born in the same year has the same sign.

Even if you don't believe in star-signs, there are still some other superstitious folk-knowledge ways to understand someone's personality. Hair colour, for example. Do Blondes really have more fun? Are redheads really hotheaded? Again, unfortunately, the Japanese almost all have black hair, so this technique won't work either.

So instead the Japanese think they can tell something about your personality from your Bloodtype.

so dont be suprised by the 3 first time questions......WHAT IS YOUR NAME, HOW OLD ARE YOU? and WHAT IS YOUR BLOOD TYPE..:)))
