blood type A and cortisol?

sy mmg sgt berpassionate about blood type.
whenever i feel something is going wrong with myself, i'll try to figure the reason out by linking it to my blood type. its kinda weird 'superstitious', i know, but at least it helps me a lot to calm me down.
because lately, i'm pretty lost myself. maybe i'm stressed out with the homework, report and programming, but to be honest, it is not like i'm a 'first time student'. i've been here for 3 years, and i've being through this a lot before. so, why?

i tried to google A type personality, and i found this, a good article entitle 'what makes a type A an individual'. 

'In this busy, ever changing world, it's almost impossible to avoid every day stress. Type As have a naturally high level of the stress hormone cortisol and produce more in response to stressful situations.

Due to the naturally elevated cortisol in type As, additional stress often manifests in several ways; disrupted sleep patterns, daytime brain fog, increased blood viscosity (thickening), and promotes muscle loss and fat gain. In extreme cases in Type As, stress can manifest in more serious ways, causing obsessive-compulsive disorder, insulin resistance and hypothyroidism.  

He also points out that the following factors are known to increase cortisol levels and increase mental exhaustion for Type As - be aware and limit your exposure when possible:
  • Crowds of people
  • Loud noise
  • Negative emotions
  • Smoking
  • Strong smells or perfumes
  • Too much sugar and starch
  • Overwork
  • Violent TV and movies
  • Lack of sleep
  • Extreme weather conditions (hot or cold)

Heightened cortisol levels make it harder for Type As to recover from stress.'
plus to that, i googled some more.

'People with blood type A have a deep-rooted strength that helps them stay calm in a crisis when everyone else is panicking (i guess this is right). However, they tend to avoid confrontation, and feel very uncomfortable around people (i think just around people yg x bpe kenal jek). A types are shy and sometimes withdrawn. They seek harmony and are very polite, but all the same feel that they never really fit in with others. A types are very responsible. If there is a job to be done, they prefer to take care of it themselves. These people crave success and are perfectionists. They are also very creative, and the most artistic of all the blood types, most likely because of their sensitivity.

People with blood type A are also likely to be considered classic "type A's": stressed and conscientious.'

 A type = stressed?

such a heart-breaking discovery. 

so, i am the stressed type hu? 
what, limit exposure to crowds of people? i think i do love crowds of people, but seems like it is bad for my cortisol level. should i change that?

eyh, btw, actually, i need some motivation for tomorrow. i'm gonna have a test, a report need to be submitted, and a so-called meeting that sort of as i'm responsible of. and the day after tomorrow, i still need to do my programming report which should be done within two weeks but i delayed it so much till i dun have another option except finishing it within a day, and the next day after the day after tomorrow, i'm gonna have a new task of programming jikken.

yess, i'm stress!
well, since my cortisol level is different from other blood types, don't blame me for that.

hheh.manusia memang suke mencari alasan.
sekurang-kurangnye alasan itu membantu menenangkan.hoho.
conscientious leads to perfection.
perfection leads to stress.

yeah, i see the relation!
