I had a similar type look as a kid, was also in dancing.  Haven't done all the measurements but likely a Hunter.

Quoted from jayneeo
well if her torso is longer than her legs.........who are these people with longer legs than torso????
(she's adorable!)

Quoted from EquiPro

ME!  I am built very, very similar to Dorothy BUT I have a much shorter neck and the length from my crotch to my navel is shorter.  If you saw us in similar outfits, side-by-side, you'd think that we were similar, but that her legs were even longer, proportionately,  than mine.

But upon a closer look, visually, it is clear that her neck is much longer than mine, her head is proportionately bigger (larger - I have a pretty small head for my shoulders/ body), and that's a large part of where she gets the inches in torso length!

Like I's an illusion and measuring carefully is really important!  

Me Too!
I am extremely short bodied, my neck is only maybe average length and i have a smallish head. My massage therapist tells me my ribs are very compacted together compared to the average person.

I'm very glad i saw this thread though. I had originally just assumed that my legs were "much longer" than my torso, but when i measured, i was surprised to see how close the 2 measurements were... so much so that i redid all of my measurements a few times. Turns out my legs are just over an inch longer than my torso... but to look at me you would think that it was much more.

Hi guys,

I'm bumping this old thread because I just stumbled onto it and was BLOWN AWAY!

Those of you who are new to Swami and GTD like me, go back to the start of this thread and check out this woman's pictures of her young ballerina daughter. She looks like she has these REALLY long legs and short body, but in actual fact in GTD terms she has a longer torso and shorter legs!

This explains a massive mystery that has been confusing me since I measured myself yesterday. I also look really long legged and short-waisted like this little girl (albeit I have boobs and fat on me, and am no longer a 10 year old nymph), and have always been considered to have much longer legs than torso. Yet when I did the GTD measurements sitting on the chair, I came out as longer torso and longer upper legs! You could have blown me down with a feather...

And my DH also looks like a long legged gazelle, just more muscly, yet he also came out as longer torso and longer upper leg. We were both like "WTF?"

But now this woman's wonderful post from 2 years ago has explained everything. Hurrah!

Am so grateful for this forum.

Hugs everyone!

So I have measured. And I have identified as an Explorer. I know I do not have the energy level of a hunter. I think of Hunters as kind of twitchy if they don't get enough exercise. I get twitchy, but do not need vigorous exercise.
My weight is down to about 116. I am 66" tall, skinny frame, narrow wrists,
but with wide shoulders, wide flat hips, a real waist. My face is lean, slightly symmetrical. I have been an explorer. If I keep on losing weight, my cheekbones will jut out. Maybe they already do.
So am I an explorer or a hunter? My swami foods definitely change.

The sun, with all those planets around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.

The best thing to do is put your actual measurements into SWAMI and let the computer program calculate everything for you. The "genotype override" is useful in a handful of cases, but most of the time it's best to let the computer do the work.
