Ok, after doing some checking and rechecking, Teacher and explorer come up. I don't know my secretor status, or I could narrow that down. Will have to decide if I really need to do that or not. All of this is very interesting!

Cyn,
I am sort of the same way. I feel good with the teacher diet but am going to get Swami this month and hopefully fine tune between teacher and explorer.
The secretor status does have a slight impact on diet regarding avoids and superfoods, etc.

But until you do the secretor test, you can try one diet and see how it fits you.  You really have nothing to lose, and if you feel awful, try the other one.

feel awful is a bit exaggerated.....again, it all depends on how far you wish to go, to determine more about your individuality, like secretor status, subtype of A, MN status, even mitochondrial dna haplogroup,....aso

all in all, you ll be eating far better than the SAD diet out there, or a diet not fit to your physiology, like Atkins for an A, and vegetarian for an O ......

this is a journey of self discovery, and it needs to be fun!!!

Teacher vs Explorer for an A can be very difficult to sort out because there is so much that is similar.

I would pay close attention to the dental and dermatoglypic differences.  We had the greatest trouble with my wife - an unusual A + sec Explorer.  Personality and exercise habits/reactions are also a key place to observe differences.  Genotyping is an art form of a science.

Paul,
This is what I am going through, also. Chloe just mentioned something similar on another thread. We feel we are teachers but with many explorer tendencies.
Just curious, would your wife be ISFJ?
What do you observe as different exercise/personality traits between the two genotypes?

The thing is that I have 4 whorl fingerprints which is very typical of a Teacher....(and possibly 6 because two I can't read....so, on the slight assumption that the invisible prints could be whorls, I listed 6 whorls in my SWAMI intake)....but I'm also an A2...which is very Teacher-like too...but I have no real obvious wrist tendons...(subtract that Teacher characteristic but I'm still a Teacher).  Still when it comes to allergies, this is where the BTD diet for type A (which I followed for almost 20 years) was a bit different. I ate no dairy and no eggs for all those years..
I didn't have nasal allergies...but I did have fibromyalgia and following my SWAMI seemed to
have (almost) resolved it.  So that's huge.  I'm not sure if all that soy was the cause of my
fibro/chronic fatigue/mood issues...but I was eating a low animal food diet when I followed
the BTD for A and right now, the more protein I eat from fish/poultry/lamb, the better I feel.
I just thought the A diet was too low in animal protein for me...so I've got tons of energy now,
which I didn't have before.

And as far as eating the meats that an Explorer can eat....I think I'd be fine on most of them
and be better off not eating the eggs (which I'm pretty sure could be responsible for my often stuffy left ear -- which sometimes starts hissing like in tinnitus).  These are things I didn't eat on the BTD...(but I am much older now and who knows).  Explorers don't get chicken eggs...
And soy foods are generally not digestible in my body. (Explorers don't get lots of soy).  My
best soy would be natto in pill form and sprouted soy which is in Live Cell A.  As far as
actually eating soy foods, I rarely do it.

I'm not left handed...most Explorers are...and this lopsided left side of the body vs. right
side is only evident in my jaw...which seems to be a bit off center...as it is with my sisters...
and we all have TMJ...Is TMJ an explorer thing?

Only once did SWAMI call me an Explorer...I played around with my intake form and managed
to get SWAMI to change me from being a Teacher.  Yet, are there many A2 Explorers?  I
never did follow the Explorer diet...It doesn't seem right, yet the Teacher diet isn't 100%
right either due to the cheese I know I'd do better without.  I eat it sometimes...and then
decide I'm better off without it.

And I don't think I'm that allergic.  My sister is....I'm pretty sure she's an Explorer although she's right handed too.

It's mainly the cheese on the Teacher's Diet that I'm not sure about...I go back and forth
between eating it (then craving it), giving it up (forgetting about it), going back to it...and then
wondering should I just avoid it completely.

I would think if I were an Explorer then SWAMI wouldn't have helped my fibromyalgia....I've
got more energy than I've ever had...So I don't think the wrong diet would cause improvements
quite this profound.

I'm pretty sure if we had the professional SWAMI done, our diets could be further refined...
but still, the cheese perplexes me.  It causes lots of mucous and that doesn't seem like a good
thing.

Thanks, Chloe....
I sort of identify with the cheese thing. I can eat many that don't bother me but know those to stay away from!
You and I are both right handed, Rh+, and secretors......none are hallmarks of an explorer. You have the hallmark whorl fingerprints and I the hallmark very visible tendons of teachers.
Were either of your parents bloodtype O ?  My dad is an O- explorer, my Mom is A+...apparently being an Ao falls in line with explorers.
I am going to re-run my swami and look deeper. You are probably correct about the professional swami. Experts and all....

I don't know if I am imagining it, but I ate a lot of feta last week and it's the best I have felt in a long time. I kept trying to work out what had made the difference and that was all I could put it down to. I even had some avoids (although in pretty small quantities as we had quests staying) and I still felt great. I then realised I wasn't feeling quite so good for the last few days and last night I had some feta again and I am feeling great this morning.
Again, it could be just coincidence and I am eating WAY more feta than SWAMI advises to, in fact I eat a lot more cheese and yoghurt as well as more ghee than I should, but I have been feeling great. I made spelt bread yesterday and ate far too much of it and expected to feel bad later, but I didn't!!

I am a Blood Type A and Warrior Very cut and dried on how I feel.  I would consider SWAMI but need more information from others doing it.  I am careful with what I eat and feel wonderful.  I cheat and boy do I know it.

I have been following the GTD for only a few days and already feel a bit better.  I was going to wait and see how I did before investing in swami or secretor testing but I just squeezed out the money and jumped in.  I should get both items today and can't wait to see what is recommended for me.

It will be interesting to see what swami says as I know my body does not like eating low fat at all. I am betting I am a non-secretor.

According to the Advanced Calculator in the GTD book, you are a Warrior.

We didn't have the ratio of Upper to Lower leg length, but the results are the same in either case.

You might just need more protein.

I feel like I ought to go back to the drawing board.  I might be a teacher and not an explorer after all.  Something about adding nuts back into my diet and trying to eat protein other than yogurt, and I just have NO energy. Eating additional fat is just making me crave sugar. I felt better before I started trying to fix what wasn't broken....

Not yet.

Rh negative.
Torso & legs are of equal length.
Lower leg longer than upper leg (I think I measured it right).
Index and ring fingers are of equal length.
No whorls; 6 loops; 4 arches (arches are on index and middle fingers)
Average waist-to-hip ratio (.73)
History of cancer in family.
No history of heart disease or diabetes in family.
Jaw is not square -- it is more angled.
Tendons are very visible in the hands, less so in the wrists.
Zero tolerance for perfumes and cigarette smoke.
Good caffeine tolerance in general but am more sensitive to coffee than tea.
Poor tolerance for almonds, eggs, red meat, coconut, etc.  Eating fat and protein pretty much guarantees I will feel lousy
Cheese ok in moderation and yogurt always ok.

I might be better off just sticking to the BTD until I find out the secretor status.  Then, skip this stuff that is making me neurotic, and just get the swami!

Or, I'm a "teachwarplorer."

Smugalert,
Do you have a long face or head shape? That would be warrior. Leg measurements are important, also. My swami puts me at 41% teacher with andric opening and at 40% explorer with gynic. Only the warriors have the longer lower leg...both teachers and explorers have shorter lower legs.
When you do a swami it details the strengths, etc. to give you an accurate account of your genotype. I don't have any whorls but have extremely visible wrist tendons so strength test highest at teacher.

My face is not long or narrow, nor is my head. I'm not sure I'm measuring the legs correctly.  The upper legs touch at the knees. I just went back to eating the old way that was working until I get more of that old bloodwork back.  I don't think the swami would be useful until I have that bloodwork.
