Quick Answer

Type AB positive people have personality traits affected by the genetic mutation of combining blood types A and B. Although type AB may enjoy being around other people and are friendly and open, there is a deep seated feeling of mistrust and an overall feeling of alienation, according to naturopathic physician Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo on his official website.

Full Answer

Most type ABs are known as "intuitive and spiritual, with an ability to look beyond the rigid confines of society," explains Dr. D'Adamo. ABs want to be liked by their community but feel very strongly about their beliefs. At times, this clash of passion and wanting to be accepted can create internal and external conflict.

Type AB is one of the rarest blood types with less than 5 percent of the population having this type. Additionally, AB is the only type to have been created genetically by breeding and not the environment. There is a health movement that believes a person should eat based on his blood type. Theories suggest that stress, digestion and overall wellness are affected by blood type. This theory was initially introduced by Dr. D'Adamo. His diet or wellness plan is commonly known as the Blood Type Diet.
