I sent for the genotype test. I do not know secretor or RH factor. On the basic calculator I had 1 3 4 6. On the strength testing, Hunter got 16 points. The next highest score was 8 for Explorer.

Warrior here.  My mom is a warrior as well.  My sister hasn't done the measurements but she probably is one too.  Brother is one for sure (though he doesn't count). All of my immediate family are Type As as well.

I have heard of SWAMI but it isn't in the budget yet - so maybe you guys and gals can help me narrow my GT down?

My upper legs are 17 1/2 in., lower legs 15 in., Trunk 34 in., my Left Finger Prints: (Thumb - Radial Loop, Index - Plain Arch, Mid. - Tented Arch, Ring- Radial Loop, Pinky - Tented Arch); my Right Finger Prints: (All Fingers - Radial Loop) (So the Lft. vs. Rt. Index Finger being different with one radial loop pattern is also an Explorer thing right?)

I had thrush off and on (a yeast infection) while nursing my first baby, I've always had irregular periods but when I get them they are heavy, I seem to always have a dip in energy around 1-3 p.m., I've had migraines in the past, I'm very sensitive to medications.

So any Explorers out there can you confirm if I've got the type right?  What is the main thing to know about being an Explorer (that might contradict the Type A BTD...)

Thanks in advance!

We don't have enough / the correct information to use the tables in the book to determine Genotype.
The measurements we need are:
Standing height
Torso - I assume this is the Trunk measurement provided.
Upper leg and lower leg are provided.
Length of index and ring fingers on both hands (or at least which is longer for each hand).
Blood Type and Rhesus factor - both provided.
Secretor status - may be necessary or not - depends on where in the table the other measurements place you.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm 5'7".
I don't have the measurement anymore but we did measure them and my pointer finger is longer on both hands.
I haven't paid for the secretor status test - hopefully I can learn my GT without it....

Since height is 67" and trunk is 34, legs are 33 - torso longer than legs.
Upper leg longer than lower leg.
Index fingers longer on both hands.
A+

Secretor or Non - doesn't matter - per the table on pg. 290, you are Teacher.

Interesting.  I thought for sure I fit the Explorer profile because the upper legs are longer and because of the fingerprints where for the Teacher the upper and lower legs are equal and they often have a significant number of whorl type fingerprints which I do not.  Teachers also have index and ring finger ratios that are usually asymmetrical as per left and right sides.  Did the book info. become outdated?  The stuff I'm quoting here is from the 4 your type website....

Harmony,
I am also a teacher but have many explorer qualities...such as the index fingerprints are opposite and I do not have any whorls! My legs are the same as yours...my torso is longer than my total leg length and my thighs are longer than my lower legs. I believe this is normal for both teachers and explorers...only A's with longer legs than body are the warriors.
I strongly recommend Swami as soon as you can swing it.

When I did my measurements a week ago - I was warrior no question.  

Is it usual to have fingers on both hands same measurements -index and ring I mean and same patterns - arch? my hands seem to be perfect copies.

I see a comment about legs being longer than torso which is true but when I look in the mirror I dont see that which I do with other family members so measurements need to be accurate.

Also my own observation of half a dozen A type friends - we all have the same style of feet - gradual decrease in height from big toe to little toe on both feet - you could almost draw a straight line. Friends with o type seem to have different toe sizes - some the toe next to the big got very long etc and not the gradual change in height that As seem to have. Does anyone else see this?

Del,
Interesting observation about the toes.
My toes are exactly how you describe the other "A" toes.
My DH is an O hunter and his second toes on each foot are longer than the big toe.
Now I will be looking at my O and A family members and friends to see if this is consistent.

Yes, my toes gradually decrease in that way.

Welcome Maybe!

If you're having trouble identifying your genotype, another option is to follow the Type A diet from Live Right 4 Your Type.

You can't guess secretor status from the measurements in the genotype book. I mean, sure, you can guess, but it's not an accurate way to figure it out.

All of the "book diets" are wonderful diets, but every human being is unique and some of us don't fit too well into any one category. I personally did poorly on the Gatherer diet, and I would have reverted to the Blood Type Diet for Os if SWAMI hadn't been available. The diet I have now is personalized just for me and works better (and is easier to follow/feels less restrictive) than any of the diets from the books.

But SWAMI is an investment and if you're not in a position to spend the money right now, rest assured that the diets in the books are still wonderful- it just might take some time to figure out which one is the best fit for you.

If you have your measurements and blood type, it's generally considered more accurate to use the advanced calculator at the back of the book. You can pretty much ignore the strength testing that goes along with the basic and intermediate calculators.

However, SWAMI does use those strength testing things and often comes up with a different "genotype label" than people measure for in the book. But with SWAMI, the label isn't important because all the foods are individually evaluated against your specific needs, and the list may vary widely from any of the books.

If you measure for one genotype in the advanced calculator, but the genotype description "just doesn't make sense" and you strength test much more strongly for a different genotype (one that's possible with your blood type) then you may not do as well on "by the book" Genotype diets. Such individuals really benefit from a SWAMI. If that's not a current option, then you may do better on the Genotype that you strength test/intuitively feel is a better fit rather than the one you measured for. Or you can use the blood type diet instead of either genotype diet.

My advice is to double-check all the measurements, then follow the genotype that you measure for. If it's not working for you after 4-6 weeks, re-evaluate at that time. Alternatively, double-check the measurements, and if you don't feel confident with any of the genotype results, go with the Blood Type Diet.

Thank you, Ruth.

I'm still in the procedure of reading the geno type diet but having done thesemi-advanced test and having read the introductioin before the individual diets, it seems like the explorer is a good fit compared to the other genotypes...even though I have no idea where I should get most of the reccommended meat and fish...and most of it seems bit too expensive for an everyday food as well.

I haven't looked much into blood type diet. But I understand that it's pretty much vegetarian for type a. ? And that's out of the question for me.

Don't know much about the SWAMI test thingy. But I'll have a look around.

The A diet does not need to be vegetarian. It CAN be, but it doesn't have to be. A's get plenty of poultry, eggs, and fish- it's only red meat that you need to limit or avoid. You'd also want to include plenty of beans in your diet,and have some vegetarian meals (something I could never feel satisfied on) but there's no need to be completely vegetarian.

Don't worry about the food list seeming exotic or expensive. There are many foods in my own SWAMI that I've never tried, and some fruits that I've had a small serving of once or twice, usually for holidays. I base my meals on the foods that are readily available within my budget. For my family of Os and Bs, that means a lot of turkey and beef- lamb is better for all of us but I can only afford it a few times a year.

Welcome, Maybe!
I noticed that you are A-. One of my friends is also A- and she naturally needs more "meat" (usually lamb) than I do...even though my body has to have turkey and fish. I would not be satisfied or feel healthy as a strict vegetarian, but I do not need to eat fish or turkey daily....about 5 days out of 7. Red meat is plain toxic for me in many ways, especially digestion.
Ruthie gave you great advice.

Interesting about your a- friend...well I tried eating meat only every other day a few years ago. But I felt a lot better with the low carb, high animal protein and fat diet I stared after that.  
Actually I always score "protein type" and don't feel satisfied after low-fat meat. So type a diet lists were quite a turn-off   and I wished I were an o.

Quoted from Shari
I haven't seen any polls like this, so I thought I'd write one  .  Go ahead and vote for all the women in your household whose genotype you know.

Does anyone remember if there was some hypothesis or angle driving the survey?

I only voted for myself (Teacher, A+) but I do have a daughter.  That being said, she's only 8 months old and since she was born at home we do not know what her blood type is.  We don't even know my husband's yet because we keep forgetting to ask the hospital!

All things considered I'm almost certain he fits the A+ Warrior status and since she takes so much after him in build (so far) I'm thinking she might also be an A+ Warrior.  We'll have to wait and see.

Also, on the toe and leg thing:

My torso is longer than my legs and even though my toes do decrease in size, they are at a rather sharp angle, especially the last three on both feet.

So I think that might have more to do with genotype/ancestry than blood type.
