Oh Possum!!  Sorry to hear it is not just me then!! First they game me the wrong test, then they tell me they do not do blood typing, then I get the new saliva test kit, the form is also for bood typing, phoned them and yes, they do it, but wait till you get the other test tube for the blood so you send everything together!!  So the saga continues, I am still waiting...  I am in Aussie but the turn around between them and us is at least 3 days if not more!!
Do not get me going!! ,,,  It is OK though ... I'll get it sorted out soon enough.  In the meantime Swami is looking over me!
I want to believe we are just the unlucky exceptions, they must be doing thousands of tests, they cannot all be this complicated ...

It is amazing to see all those percentages in this thread.  We are all unique individuals.  Makes sense!!

Hope it gets sorted soon... The worst thing with my situation is that PathLab are blaming Aus Post & who knows what Aus Post are saying.. they haven't yet responded to my email In the meantime my husband got back from a week London & is upset (understandedly) that his credit card details are on a form "lost" somewhere in Aus!!!!!! Eek!!!!
I should have had the sense to insist I paid over the phone... but I was juggling the effects of a week of not much sleep, on top of jetlag, plus three days of helping a daughter move out of her house & a demanding grandaughter on my knee, while I was filling it all in

I searched GTD book, google, main site and forums for possible terms for the answer, but couldn't find it.

Are these correct statements?

Type O can only be Hunter/Gatherer/Explorer

Type A can only be Teacher/Warrior/Explorer

Type B and AB can only be Gatherer/Explorer/Nomad

I was playing around with my swami and found the following:

I am a Hunter if I say I have lines on fingertips and I am a taster or super taster. 38%

I am an Explorer if I don't have lines on fingertips and I am a taster or super taster. 38%

I am a Gatherer if I have lines on fingertips and I am a nontaster!!! 38%

Wow, very small changes in my swami give me all 3 of the 0 possible genotypes.  Interesting to note, the foods don't change all that much from diet to diet for me...my diet stays as a nonnie O diet throughout.

Type AB can be a warrior, teacher, nomad, explorer.

See pages 290-297 for possible GenoTypes or pages 91-94.

I didn't think about looking at the charts, thanks!

So how about this:

Type O can only be Hunter/Gatherer/Explorer

Type A can only be Teacher/Warrior/Explorer

Type B can only be Gatherer/Explorer/Nomad

Type AB can be Gatherer/Teacher/Explorer/Warrior/Nomad

Right. The tables don't show that.

So, is this correct?

Type O can only be Hunter/Gatherer/Explorer

Type A can only be Teacher/Explorer/Warrior

Type B can only be Gatherer/Explorer/Nomad

Type AB can be Teacher/Explorer/Warrior/Nomad

Or like this BT/GT polar graph with a Nonnie center and radial BT sectors:

Hunter       Gatherer
          \    /           \
            O                B
              \            /    \
               Explorer       Nomad
              /             \    /
            A                AB
              \             /
                 Teacher
                 /Warrior

Except that Teacher is closer to A and Warrior to AB

Great graph Paul.  Never realised that Warrior is closer to AB.

Have you all seen the graph on this page?  Takes a while to get your head around it, and to imagine it in 3d.  Shame it couldn't by anaglphyic 3d cos we've got the glasses here.

Great read and excellent chart.

What does it mean that Warrior is so far out there by itself and Explorer is so close to the middle?  (I'm Warrior, my DH is Explorer, so particularly interesting to us)

it is more 3 dimensional......actually the points aren t as far out as they seem in the picture......
imagine the explorer point sticking out toward you, when looking at the graph

Thank you, Ghee Whiz.  Yes, reviewed that graph again and again.  Is the Z axis a measure of acetylation?  If the Explorer is close to the orign, but distant in the third dimension, is everthingelse on the XY plane? What are the first two principle components made up of?  I have done a much shallower analysis from the Advanced Calculator categories and come up a whole mess that cannot be neatly summarized.  Unless you can think in seven dimensions, that is.  

There is just enough information to tease you!

Concealed Carry Gatherer! SWAMI Explorer Blend

Now this is weird!  I just went back to check my SWAMI & the only change I made was to have SWAMI calculate my GT. It said Explorer(before I put gatherer & it said I put gatherer, but that it calculated me as explorer - OK so far).
But then it said 46% EXplorer which is on the high side!
Then some of the foods listed were different. The changes really didn't affect what I would eat or have been eating, but there were quite a few changes like 6 TBS of oil instead of 3, more meats as SFs, 3 fruits instead of 2, 6 veggies instead of 5, 6 eggs instead of 8, etc.  Now if all the data input was the same, why the changes?
Like I said, it won't change much what I will eat( I already don't eat enough eggs & eat more oil, for example).
Wassup with all this??

You will not see a percentage if you do either of these things:

Select an abbreviated diet report.

You override the calculated GenoType.

If you have not done either of these you should find the percentage in the: "What Makes You a GT5 Warrior" section of your diet report. A few pages in, but before the diet listings.

My diet report just has food listings - I didn't get anything about why I am a warrior. Where do I get that? I didn't get that with the first teacher I printed out either. I thought I was teacher based on the book, but when I let swami decide - it said I was a warrior. Am I missing out on something?????

MRS T  only made 1 change and I went from gatherer
( I was already a bit surprised about that since I started as Nomad) to explorer.

My food changes a bit but NOT much in many ways
my swami explorer list is much more a B diet than a explorer.

I think I am just like JeanB a very  close Genotype.
I am just 37 % explorer and only small stuff change my GT.

62% HUNTER. I can't believe the differnce SWAMI has made.  No more itching!  I had no idea I had a problem with nuts, they were SWAMI'd out of my diet.  My inflammation is just about nonexistent.  My CRP went from 1.3 to .2.  I couldn't be happier and I feel wonderful.Thanks Dr. D!
Just wanted to say I am so glad you posted this comment here!!!! I stopped the macadamia nuts for a few days & then tested them by reintroducing just them, and they are pretty obviously the cause of my inflammation!! Who would've thought!!!??? Now I'm thinking I wanna get swami done
