I am having some confusion determining whether I am a Hunter or Explorer. Unfortuantely I have not received my book yet, but I was hoping you knowledgable folks could help me!
When I was reading about the personality descriptions it appeared that I was very much an explorer. I really identified with a lot of what was said (over sensitivity to normal amounts of medicine, etc.) However, I do not have a negative blood type (I am O+), nor an asymmetrical face/ body, and my legs are longer than my torso. I know I am not a gatherer from the description, so I was left with Hunter. I am not very tall or extremely thin, so I am left with more confusion. Please let me know if you have any advice!
About me: Dark hair and eyes. female average height index finger shorter than ring finger (both hands) Ecto-mesomorph. Torso is shorter than legs and upper leg is slightly longer than lower leg. I have a lot of allergies From experience I know that I cannot handle wheat or dairy- but I think this is a typical O+ trait.

swami helps compute your true genotype

Explorers do not have to be rh(-) but often come from a mother who is rh(-) with an rh(-) lineage in the family. I found out this is the case in my case (my mother is rh(-). When you get the book you can compare them. Even the psychological traits could help to make a distinction, as well as the body measurments and just the whole picture.
I never used a swami and just compared explorer to other possible genotypes i could be, but all the evidence confirmed the genotype. It was pretty obvious from the start in my case, being left handed to ambidextrous, mismatched finger prints, chemical sensitivty, rh (-) mother, even the psychological profile.
A hunter is more symmetrical, right handed, more predictable allergic responses, usually more ectomorphic, higher center of gravity, and look at the psych. profile. Being a hunter does not necessarily mean tall, some are short and compact.

You could go ahead & eat the hunter diet & see what happens. Later you might get the SWAMI. You are miles ahead of the average person already with the BTD!!!!
