Is it just me or is the Blood type profile question a little creepy?

Sure Zodiac sign, no problem, male/female, sure...

But Blood Type?

Maybe it's a regional thing or something but I just thought it a little odd

I've heard that blood types are pretty important in Japan, though I'm not sure why that is. So I guess that was added in to make CR seem slightly more Japanese, or for people who come from those types of cultures and would prefer to let people know their blood type. Lol, I can see why it would come across as creepy, it definitely has a stalker vibe to it.

Blood types are popular in Japan, no different than using birth dates to determine whether you are a Cancer or a Virgo in Astrological Signs, to which they serve a similar function. Basically, fun, harmless personality-compatibility things, despite that it has no bearing in science.

It seemed to arise to fight against ethnic stereotypes and racial superiority in the 70s, by which it means establishing its superiority instead.


In any case, it lacks these negative connotations, and if you ever read the data sheets authors sometimes make for their characters, the blood type is listed alongside their likes and dislikes.

Not sure how blood types are any creeper than date of birth. There are only so few blood types, versus the specific date of any one person, which is far less likely to be shared.

well this is a site with a lot of stuff from Japan. but blood type is basically where you're placed in society, work place, it pretty much determines your future. you don't want to be born in said blood type because you're either going to be the best or the worst. just one more way bullying keeps on smacking down the people and not allowing them to rise from their own ashes. I don't know my blood type so I didn't bother to fill that in, guess the day will come that a doctor will need to test that...

here's a link to help further explain blood types https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_type_personality_theory

Took me the longest time to figure out why video game manuals listed blood type for characters, too. Of course, according to the blood type charts, I should be athletic since I'm an O, and that's obviously false.

I think the whole blood type = personality is a belief that's held in some Asian countries like Japan.

I don't know what my blood type is, to tell you the truth. It's either A or O, but I don't know which one. Ah well.
