Taiwanese people are a superstitious bunch!

Something that I’ve noticed after having lived in Taiwan for almost 5 months now is that Taiwanese people are a superstitious bunch!

Earlier I had a post about lucky bamboo (and how a red ribbon should always accompany bamboo or any other sort of plants/trees in the office because it will balance out the Yin and Yang in Fengshui).

Well… They also believe in a variety of other things such as blood type, horoscope, and the zodiac. And for blood type, it matters which combination you are too (for example, if you have blood type A, your personality might be slightly different depending on whether you’re AA or AO).

Psychological tests are also quite popular here. CF asked me a couple recently, and I’ll find the time to post them up so you guys can try them out as well! I don’t know how accurate they are, so take them with a grain of salt. :) It’s just for fun.

  1. I’m not sure if I believe in any of that stuff but I’ve always wondered about whether blood type really does affect your personality. At least that notion is somewhat based on something tangible. Too bad I don’t know my blood type (in America no one cares about it unless you need a blood transplant), but my parents tell me that I act like I’m an “O”. I’ll take their word for it!

  2. Wow. I thought you knew about the blood type stuff. As for me, I’m type O. Type O was the first blood type, the type O ancestral prototype was a canny, aggressive predator. Aspects of the Type O profile remain essential in every society even to this day – leadership, extroversion, energy and focus are among their best traits.
