The tendency to think about behaviour in a simple way is illustrated by two kinds of questions that people commonly ask about behaviour: 1) Is it physiological or is it psychological? 2) Is it inherited or is it learned? Though these questions have no specific answer, they are among the most common question asked in biopsychology classroom. Just due to curiosity of biological view of behaviour the study was undertaken to see whether the ability of the individual to sort information from his or her environment and selectively react to this information were influenced by such important variables as ABO Blood Groups. Thus the sample of study was taken from the population of the Aurangabad District, Maharashtra. The effective sample consists of 200 mature persons who know their blood groups and their age range were 25-45, which were classified equally in four Blood Groups i.e. A, B, AB, and O. The sampling was stratified (a type of probability sampling). To determine ability of the individual to separate the word and colour naming stimuli Stroop Colour and Word was used. The result partially support to the hypothesis stating that "There would be significant difference among ABO Blood Groups on Stroop Colour Word Interference Score.

Abstract


The tendency to think about behaviour in a simple way is illustrated by two kinds of questions that people commonly ask about behaviour: 1) Is it physiological or is it psychological? 2) Is it inherited or is it learned? Though these questions have no specific answer, they are among the most common question asked in biopsychology classroom. Just due to curiosity of biological view of behaviour the study was undertaken to see whether the ability of the individual to sort information from his or her environment and selectively react to this information were influenced by such important variables as ABO Blood Groups. Thus the sample of study was taken from the population of the Aurangabad District, Maharashtra. The effective sample consists of 200 mature persons who know their blood groups and their age range were 25-45, which were classified equally in four Blood Groups i.e. A, B, AB, and O. The sampling was stratified (a type of probability sampling). To determine ability of the individual to separate the word and colour naming stimuli Stroop Colour and Word was used. The result partially support to the hypothesis stating that "There would be significant difference among ABO Blood Groups on Stroop Colour Word Interference Score.
