Hello everyone!
I have a question - The Genotype Diet book give examples of famous people assigned to each genotype.

In what sense these people fit into a particular genotype?
Appearance? Character?

If I'm blood group B Rh +, actually I have to choose only two options - either I'm Gatherer or Nomad.

If I'm slim, I have no problems with the fashionable silhouette, I've white lines in fingerprints, ulnar loops in fingerprints, symmetrical physique, I'm sensitive to tastes, and look more like Elizabeth I than Oprah Winfrey, I'm probably more Nomad. But about Marylin Monroe I don't know, she looks different than Oprah Winfrey. Long time ago when I wasn't so thin, I looked like Marylin (but slim Marylin).
However, It seems to me, that I'm more proportional thank Marilyn, I have more fashionable silhouette. I look more like Anja Rubik.

I didn't measured my body yet, but it seems to me that I'm more the Nomad. I'm not sure, but Gathener is more persistent. I hate bad extremes and need balance, I often feel tired. And I'm not "plump". But Marylin Monroe also wasn't "plum".

As for examples of famous people to a specific genotype - what to follow? And - do I right think? Do I have good reasoning?

I've wondered the same thing.  Sorry, I don't know how they came up with those examples for each GT.

The bone measurements matter a great deal more than how much you are "filled out", or personality traits.

You sound like a nomad with white lines.  Nomads have a more medium build while gatherers have usually havelarger and stronger frames.

And gatherers tend to have more asymmetry than nomads.

Explorer is also an option for all blood types.  But they tend to have more asymmetry and are built similar to nomads, with a mid size frame.

For sure I'm not Explorer.
Nothing did agree with this genotype - asymmetric distribution of fingerprints, left-handedness, the proportion of the fingers, often muscular body (I never had muscular body), broad head, square face. Nothing. Quite the opposite. In addition, I am Rh +, Explorer often has Eh -.

I have a symmetrical body, all my fingers have the same proporions, I have symmetrical physique. I have slim face, elongate shape of the jaw.

But certainly I have to do the measurements yet.

Guessing will never work Dr. D'Adamo worked too hard to make this a guessing game. His measurements are based on science and on the data he continues to gather on us.

Measure and measure again and don't guess based on who you think you are but on who the measurements say you are-- self perception is often skewed.

Must, must, must measure.  And even then don't be surprised if the GT book makes you one thing and SWAMI something else.  SWAMI changed me from Explorer to Teacher.  And in the end, remember that we all are a combination of GT's.  The label is just that--a label.  We need to not get hung up on the label.

Marilyn Monroe was BT AB so she's not a Gatherer; not of anything but high caliber men anyway.

Adam I suspect you're 100% entirely wrong. In fact I'd bet money I don't have.

Jennifer Lawrence is a good canidate for warrior. Marlon Brandon I'm 99% sure.

Brandon's physical profile follows a warrior type much more so than Gatherer. Also his behavior, he wasn't much of an extrovert.

Check out Orson Welles for a nice example of skinny to fat gatherer over age.

A lot of Warrirors have strong faces, features, and can look kinda Neanderthal when old and barrel chested. But it seems the endo ones Dr. D probably treats the most are not this way. Frankly I think most of the stronger faced ones are too stubborn to seek much help... Congruent with some of our stars here.

Thank You for Your answer. I understand that something else I think and something else can say measurements.
At the moment I only know the blood group and I'm trying to determine my genotype from book "The GTD". I still don't know my SWAMI and for determine my SWAMI I need a professional people, I guess.

Nah, I think JLaw is totally an explorer. She's got the face shape (big forehead, big cheek bones, pointy narrow chin...heart shape to me is always explorer) and she's mega neurotic.  

She's got some meat on her bones and she's 5'9". Not incredibly tall, but definitely a presence. Not massive, but definitely not slight. And her upper body looks like it's the same size as her lower body.

Also in that heart-shaped camp (to me, at least) would be ScarJo, Hayden Pannettiere and Lisa Kudrow. ScarJo definitely has meat on her bones. One of my best friends is a classic A explorer, and she looks exactly like Hayden.

Tadaaaa!
I did the measurements!




It took me a long time, I did honestly measurements several times, also with the help of someone to be objective.  


RESULTS:
1 Hunter - 19 points
2 Gatherer - 9 points
3 Teacher - 6 points
4 Explorer - 0 points
5 Warrior - 16 points
6 Nomad - 27 points

When it comes to sensitivity to caffeine - I read in a book that the Author has in mind someone who can't sleep after caffeine. But I have exactly the opposite. After coffee I sleep very well, after tea sometimes I can't sleep! When I drink coffee in the evening, I always want to sleep and after coffee I sleep very good. Once the doctor told me that some womens just can't sleep after tea because theine in tea. And after caffeine sleep good.

My sensitivity to coffee is that after coffee sometimes I get a headache when I drink during the day. I don't feel energized after coffee. More sluggish, leisurely. By the fact that coffee sometimes makes me headache and that I always want to sleep, I don't like coffee. Therefore, the genotype Explorer have indicated 0 points.

One thing I don't understand - if I'm an ectomorph type of body and "ideal" ratio of waist to hip ratio, which means "ideal"? After measuring waist and hips - my results is 0.68 (I have 53cm in waist and 78cm in the hips). But "ideal" is less thank 0.91. But I have a 0.68. It's ideal? Or something another ? When this is "ideal", then Explorer is 3 points  

My Other features:

- Blood group B +
- Symmetrical - both halves of the body are the same
- White lines on fingerprint
- Ectomorphic physique
- All the fingerprints symmetrical - 8 ulnar loops symmetrically on both hands, 2 fingerprints - vortex on indicating fingers
- Long shape of the skull
- A large angle of the mandible
- Thigh longer than calf
- Incisors shovel

Thanks for help !

White lines loops and B and symmetry point to nomad.  Coffee not great for nomads.

I feel on cloud nine with coffee and then crash hard and get irritable and hot.  Explorers prob get over stimulated and crash with it in any regular amounts.

Hi alexandrasandra,

I sense a nomad in you from what you have described. Of course, it is difficult to guess. Gatherers are the easiest to guess and I hardly missed one when I see them! Even in younger people, a look at the belly and above sometimes gives enough clue! But other genotypes are not easy to guess. So do the measurements and discover more about yourself.

Sorry, I was too late by a few seconds. You have used the basic calculator. Since you know the blood type, try using the advanced calculator and you will likely turn out to be nomad too. Basic calculator can mislead sometimes!

Hi!
Certainly I done fair and honest measurement. what I wrote is exactly my description.
I guess, probably, I am a Nomad.
But I still don't know what's my secretor status and PROP.

About The Nomad - definitely Nomads diet is the best for me, but I think that also the diet for group B (dairy, milk, kefir). Nomad can be also group AB, and I'm B. I guess I should connect beneficial food for B and beneficial for Nomad.

I tried using the GenoType book and totally did NOT fit in any category.  It was beyond frustrating.  Then I bought the SWAMI and BINGO.  Turns out I "ranked" as part Explorer but I don't fit much of the stuff that is written about explorers.

That's OK.  I'm not a bit fussed.  I wound up with a SWAMI personalized food plan that combines Explorer and original ER AND that fits me quite well.  OK - not perfect, but better than any other I've seen.  There are some foods that I just plain cannot digest that are listed as beneficials for me.  That's OK also.  Plenty more beneficials from which to choose!  

And:  regarding measurements:  I was totally shocked to find that what I thought all my life about my body had been wrong.  Example:  I always said I had most of my height in my thighs.  Turns out that my calf bones are longer than my thigh bones......and on and on.  Very eye opening.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.  

Dec 2013: Started Swami Xpress - I'm 48% Explorer with hybridized Explorer/BTD list. A new adventure for this old lady!  -- LOST 5 more pounds on SWAMI!

Hi !
I have to admit, that I have the greatest trust in the diet of blood group B (eating dairy, beneficial meat, beneficial vegetables, fruits, avoiding beans, pulses, flour, after I feel great).
After the book GTD I learned something more and I try to connect these diets. I'm also cautious and turn more attention to my individual qualities. I take also account into the health. I'm probably the Nomad, which cow's milk is avoid.
Well ... I think it's some truth in this. The milk is generally not at all healthy, because it is "a food" - female mammary secretions of mammals occurring during lactation.

However, Good luck!

Sounds like a plan.  . And congrat on getting those measurements done!!

I think it might be easy to say Kelsey Grammer would be a warrior.

Will Ferrel might be a good bet as well.

And Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear? I figure James May is an Explorer cause he always gets lost...though I have perfect sense of direction and I'm an explorer...

Jeremy Clarkson I wouldn't guess to be a warrior. Type A explorer would be possible. He doesn't barrel chested with age. Kelsey Grammer, Oliver Reed, and Marlon Brando all did. Kelsey hasn't let it get carried away however. Will Farrell shows muscle loss so it doesn't appear much, and he isn't as old.

Oliver Reed and Brando also abused themselves the most. Only a young warrior would have survived Brando's eating...

Anyone have a clue what Robin Williams' genotype was?

BTW, his wife just reported he was not only suffering from depression but also from Parkinson's.  

If only he had been able to consult with Dr. D.

Chronic long term cocaine use will deplete dopamine reserves and can trigger this.  He struggled with cocaine addiction and alcohol addiction.  Cocaine wiill not replenish dopamine but take away the reserves the body has.  He likely was a hunter is my guess.  

As a side note, my grandfather may have used cocaine (my mom believed this) and passed away from Parkinson's, and he was a blood type A.  Very relaxed guy, also had stooped posture and slow shuffle gait years before being diagnosed, also brilliant man.  Exercise and the right foods and herbs can restore a natural healthy balance to all of the nervous system.

I don't understand how it is possible that you discuss about people not knowing their dimensions?

I thought in the book GTD are examples of famous people, but these people were personally with the author on the research!

Sounds crazy, when someone just guessed. I would be surprised if Dr. D'Adamo also gave examples of "head".

P.S.  If you can know genotype "from head" without research, it should be enough to post only our pictures

? Dr. D guessed on several? He got Marilyn Monroe wrong.

We all get surprised, and that's why knowing measurements etc help.

It takes some time to be able to even guess half decent. It's often easier to know a few options of what someone isn't, more than what they are.

You can look at the general personality and dimensions and make an educated guess.  But it is not a guarantee.  Its fun to guess people's genotypes and blood types.

Yes, something sometimes it's right. We can guess.
For example, if someone has a blood group 0, is very high growth (over than 2 meters), has a "primary" type jaws, long legs, "Mens" silhouette and like intense sports - it maybe The Hunter.

Robin Williams seems like a Hunter to me.  They are all so adrenaline-driven.

That's what I was thinking, very intense and adrenaline driven.  It astounded me with the energy he would bring to movies, to me it would be trying way too hard, but for him, this came naturally I think.  He even says he used cocaine in order to calm down and focus, as opposed to getting more amped up.

I was joking about the tall and intense sports stuff, because he is a pretty small guy, but has the intensity and 360 type awareness, as well as the tendency for burnout and depression of a hunter.  My mom is one and burnout, depression, and becoming dependent on substances really is an Achilles heal for them.

I have used some things recreationally, but seem to have a built in anti abuse mechanism that protects me.  I would drink and party with my friend, who is a hunter (5'6").  We would drink similar amounts, but he struggles with a true addiction to alcohol, whereas I can not drink and be perfectly ok.

He was rather muscular and seemed on the shorter side and I thought Hunters were more likely to be taller with long limbs. ....I guess saying he was adrenaline driven might apply to his natural state but not sure anyone knew what that really was...He was a longtime abuser of drugs and alcohol....it changes a person drastically.  When he was younger and played Mork, he seemed rather petite in stature.....As he aged, he seemed to have put on a lot of muscle....not fat....so maybe you're right....Hunter...but really impossible to do much more than guess.  Because what would rule out Nomad? I know a Nomad who is built like Robin WIlliams.

I don't think Hunter... BT O Explorer? Sure! His personality did seem somewhat like what Dr. D would describe for the BT B friend everyone ought to have.

Although with the recent news, sometimes its hard to know the truth because... what if he spent all his time trying to make others happy because of low self esteem issues or something?

I have an AB friend who likes to joke around and I thought was a hunter.  He prob is a nomad.  Dr d says AB can have two sides to them and keep their real feelings hidden, for nomads too prob I think.  But anyone famous likely can have 2 sides to them so to speak more or less.  Some do flaunt their true feelings on or off stage prob tho more than others.
