It has been established by Myers and Briggs that there exist 16 different types of personalities and every individual belongs to one such category. The personality types proposed by these behavioral scientists enlist the characteristics associated with each of them. It is also known that each individual has his own blood group type. This research was carried out to determine that whether there exists any relationship between blood group type of individuals and their personality type among people of diverse age groups and backgrounds. A sample of 133 people belonging to different age groups and backgrounds was selected using stratified random sampling technique and Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), an introspective self-report standard questionnaire designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions, was used to identify the personality type of the people under study. The relationship among the personality type and blood group level of individuals was studied using Pearson's chi-square formula. The results showed that there are no significant correlations between the blood and self-reported personality, in terms of personality aspects of blood types A, B and O.
