When writing out posts on the forum, I've noticed that Teachers tend to be wordy and Warriors less so.  Very much less so.  What do you all think?

According to Dr. D's descriptions in The Genotype Diet, this makes sense.  Warriors need to learn to relax and stay aware of the tendency to get caught up in stress.  Teachers have a different type of disposition.

Adam, I see a definite difference in Teachers and Warriors in their speaking styles as well.  Both of
my sons are Teachers....They seem to want to explain everything in detail....They seem
to intuit a need to answer questions that aren't yet asked....  My husband is a Warrior. He uses far less words than our sons.

So, you all see where I'm going with this?

Have you all noticed my posting style?  Very wordy.

I even break things up into paragraphs so you can read it clearer.

I post a lot about my feelings.  Talk endlessly about food and cooking and trials and tribulations about my diet.

I ramble on and on and on.

Yep.  I'm a Teacher.  Glad we finally got that one solved.

Yes, I agree....your posting style is very much like mine and other Teachers. I'm curious if we can
find any "talky " Warriors on this forum.

Taking this into a Myers-Briggs direction...

I'm curious Chloe if you've ever had your Myers-Briggs tested.  I was between ISFJ (Nurturer) and ISTJ (Duty Fulfiller).  When I select ISFJ in SWAMI, I'm Teacher.  When I select ISTJ, I'm Warrior.  I have had to do some major soul searching lately.  It has also helped to go here:

http://personalitycafe.com/forum/

I went to a thread entitled "You know your an ISFJ when..." and read some of the responses and they really clicked with me.  Then I read the same kind of thread in the ISTJ forum, and only a couple of replies clicked.  

I think the main thing is the F part - Feeling.  I am notorious for getting my itty bitty feelings hurt.  I can't be all cold and calculating T - Thinking.  I do a lot of the thinking part, but in the end I go with my feelings.

The Duty Fulfiller seems to do their work out of simple duty.  I, on the other hand, have fulfilled my duty more out of "what will my mom think", or my boss, or my sister, or my wife, or my kids, etc.

Now that I'm older I take criticism fairly well, but when younger it was horrible.  I would just clam up and pout for days.  I'd get teased at work and just take it so much to heart.  I would perform my work always thinking what my boss would think about my performance.  I finally got the most wonderful supervisor (who I feel was a Nomad) who was the very best person in the world.  I miss her so much, and am actually fighting back tears as I write this.

And, really, I'm not stressed at all writing all this.  I am enjoying it immensely.  I think if I was a Warrior I'd about have a heart attack after writing all this.  But, really, I feel better now.  Yep... ISFJ... Teacher.

Perhaps you are actually Warrior.  I was measured as Warrior in the Genotype book by my mom the Warrior.  And was Warrior for a couple years under SWAMI, until about a year ago when it seemed everyone was changing genotypes on their SWAMI.  I know that ABJoe went from Warrior to Nomad, for example.

The thing is, I was a 39% Warrior before my SWAMI changed me to 42% Teacher with some SWAMI updates. Every time I look at myself in the mirror, I see Warrior (tall, elongated head, almond shaped jaw). So, I just don't see a significant distinction in my case. Yes, I can be wordy, but not in a lot of situations or settings.

I would probably be more wordy and explain things in more detail if it wasn't for the fact that some people, whether in public forums or real life, can be very judgmental and inadvertently give unsolicited advice.

I have made a lot of life choices that might not seem conventional or mainstream. Being a conservative Christian woman that homeschools multiple adopted children with special needs makes me a less than typical person (though I don't at all regret any of those choices). Although I'd like to share more of those details, most people can't relate to any of those characteristics.

Perhaps other Warriors feel somewhat that way and don't feel like others can relate to them and therefore don't speak up much. Or perhaps they feel vulnerable to criticism and don't want to open up easily.

I know that ABJoe went from Warrior to Nomad, for example.

This was due to either change in the body to make the measurements different or error in the original measurements...

OK, bad example.  But, I distinctly remember many people switching genotypes about a year ago after simply signing onto SWAMI after having not signed on in a while.  I was one of them.  I changed nothing on it and was switched magically to Teacher.  This recent flip to Warrior and back again was due to a simple Myers-Briggs change.

Ha!  That's funny because I just watched the movie Midnight in Paris (great film btw) and without spoiling it too much there is an Ernest Hemingway connection in the film.  I've never read anything by him.  So, looked him up in wikipedia and found that his first novel is The Sun Also Rises which I checked out yesterday and intend to start this weekend.

You think he's Warrior, eh?  I think you might be onto something there.  But, to be honest, I think he'd consider internet forums a waste of valuable drinking/fighting time.

A perfect observation. Earnest Hemmingway exemplifies the warrior, IMO. Direct, lean, efficient.  No fluff, but between the lines an emotional clarity like no other. He processed his senses, perceptions and intuition in living them. No doubt his writing was an obligation to himself in maintaining a workable presence in an over-decorated world.

Adam, I test INFP  http://www.personalitypage.com/INFP.html

  As much as I like to write and communicate, I'm actually not someone who would
be very outgoing in a crowd.  I like intimacy.... one on one....Sitting in silence, typing on a computer
often feels like I'm one on one.  I like writing in a journal....when the book is full, I take it out to my BBQ and light a match under it, so I leave no evidence.  Very effective.......

As for getting one's feelings hurt.  Rarely do I take things personally.  I feel my Warrior husband
does.  I somehow can see the larger picture.  What people say to me or do to me, reflects on them, not me.

I wouldn't worry that your genotype is incorrect.  If tested at the clinic, it doesn't get any better than
that.  Dr. D oversees his staff and students and has taught all students how to measure properly.
And usually it's a team that measures.  I honestly think nobody could improve on testing you've
had done.  My husband wishes it were true....He was tested at the clinic as a Warrior and wants to
be a Teacher.  I told him "no, I will not change genotypes with you....case closed"  

If you think your diet needs adjusting or something about your foods doesn't work for you, if
I were you, I'd call the Center and speak to someone who could give you the correct advice.

I will have to disagree here.  I am being presented with two completely different diets on SWAMI...Warrior and Teacher...based solely on a change in personality type.  

I am given in one case when selecting ISTJ, a Warrior diet, consisting of certain foods and spices that I know from past experience bother me.  Also, I'm recommended supplements that I've taken and didn't quite feel right on them.  I also am given basically a starvation diet... no red meat, one poultry, and three seafood portions.

When presented with the Teacher diet, I am given a serving of protein daily, one red meat, two poultry, and four seafood.  The Teacher supplements aid in my digestive issues.  I burped all the time on the Warrior diet with Warrior supplements.  I have flaky fingernails which the biotin in the Teacher supplements help correct.  There are probiotics built into the Teacher Activator supplement.  The food presented to me in the Teacher diet simply makes more sense.  I can follow the recommended portions and only feel slightly hungry between meals.

If I went the other route, an Explorer diet, I haven't seen one in a while, but I would assume I'd be given even more animal protein and other poultry items.  I'm certain it would be too heavy of a diet for me and completely bog down my system.  

With a Teacher diet, I'm in the comfy middle.  Not starving on a Warrior diet and not bogged down on an Explorer diet.

There is a difference between a team of knowledgeable practitioners doing the information gathering for a SWAMI Genotype and an individual doing all of the input for SWAMI Xpress.  If the team can't get it right, it won't be right...

And, so, to complicate things further, from the SWAMI itself:

Quoted Text
The six GenoTypes described by Dr. D'Adamo are very broad characterizations; no individual is purely one GenoType. Since many of the GenoType characteristics overlap, most people will have aspects of at least two or more GenoTypes.


So, really, I probably have aspects of both Warrior and Teacher.  Based on just physical characteristics, I'm coming up 45% Warrior.  But, when you figure in my personality type, I come up 40% Teacher.  Which am I to believe?

And, then, what 3 Pack do I choose?  Each SWAMI highly suggests with six stars the related 3 Pack.  There is no Warrior/Teacher combined 3 pack, unless I want to purchase and consume both, which may not be such a wise thing to do.
