Abstract

Background: The ABO blood group system holds a respectable position in the studies of its possible influence on individual's life style, personality, attitudes and proved to be very well linked with it. However, reports of its influence on person's character traits are scanty. Current study has been carried out to rule out such association of ABO groups with the person's character trait in Malaysian student population. Materials and Methods: A cross sectional study was undertaken with the involvement of 277 medical undergraduate students of Malaysian origin. Participants were provided with a faculty validated close ended questionnaire representing the range of familiar character qualities. Various characters have been further categorised under 4 major domains of trait. The options chosen by the subjects for each questions were scored and compiled. Resulting data was analysed statistically by ANOVA using SPSS (16.0) software. Results: In the present study, 71(26%) subjects were of blood group A, 91(33%) of group B, 18 (6%) of group AB and 97 (35%) of group O. Test of homogeneity of variance had normal distribution. There were no significant differences in the character traits between the groups of individuals with various blood groups. Conclusion: An individual's characters may be influenced by many external factors rather than the blood group itself. A person's perception and his upbringing play a major role in determining his/her character together with hereditary inheritance.
