The independent predictors of ailments and personality traits were analyzed by regression analysis.

ABO blood groups didnít show any association with medical illnesses (p>0.05). We found no association of blood groups with personality traits (p>0.05). Blood group was not an independent predictor of medical ailments and personality traits (p>0.05) but age was found to be predictor of ailments (p<0.05).
