Quoted from Eric
I know this isn't supposed to be a competition... but I can't help but think, "I win!" lol

"Your results: 55% of your epigenetic variation is encapsulated in the GT1 Hunter profile."


Ahhhh the joys of being a competitive O...  
Sorry, Eric but my 58% Hunter trumps your 55%  

Cheers,
Chelsie  

ETA: The 1st time I genotyped myself I came out as a Hunter, but then at the conference learned we weren't doing all the measurements exactly right and I ended up a Gatherer, and now I'm back to Hunter. Ha! I knew it all along!

Is there some way to get that percentage figure on the SWAMI report, even tho I already have a GT(by the measurements)?

Does the percentage mean something like this? --  The GT has 1,000 components(an arbitrary #) & you have 400 of them, therefore you are 40%.
That may sound low, but maybe we are so complex that it is actually high!
Maybe another GT has some of these components, so you can't accurately get a percentage for the next one!  Am I anywhere close or way off??

To get a percentage using SWAMI you should
choose for GenoType:      "Determine GenoType for me"
rather than telling it the one you calculated.

If you rerun the diet report using this setting, you should see
a percentage.

Incidentally, I would recommend that you use the GenoType calculated by SWAMI rather than the one from the book, because uses a more sophisticated method to calculate GenoType than any of the three methods presented in the book.

Mine is 41%. The tweaks certainly have made a difference in how I feel.

Hey Everyone,

I am sure that this is written in the thread somewhere, but where do you find out what % you are? I have SWAMI but never seen that? .

Much thanks.

I tried doing that. I put "determine genotype for me" in Column 2 but the next page only stated "Explorer," not the %.

Shelly,

Your percentage should be on page 4 of the long form of the SWAMI printout.  It is the document with about 50 pages.  Have you possibly chosen to get the short form?  

It should say your percentage and then a bar graph.

I noticed that is also does not show a % if you choose to over-ride the Genotype SWAMI would have picked. I tried that today just to see what kind of %age I would get as a Warrior and Teacher but it didn't say. It did make it pretty clear that I was opting to over-ride my true genotype though.

Ha!  Got it.  It says 38% Explorer with a bar graph.  But it doesn't say where the rest of the percentage lies- is it supposed to break the % down more?

See this thread for an explaination of what the percentage given in your SWAMI report means:

The percentage is not how much 'you' are 'it'.

The percentage is a measure of how much 'it' is 'you.'

So, in the right words, 38% of me is Explorer.  It seems a rather small percentage.

Is there any way to tell how much of me is of another genotype?  Some days I really do think I am a Warrior and that the SWAMI foods are incompatible for me.

Shelly,

I think (if I understand correctly  ) because Explorers can be from all 4 blood types the percentages are lower than say a Hunter's percentage, because only Type O can be that genotype.

See Lola comments and others in the thread. The percentages given do not really work that way.

To answer an earlier post: Certain info is already locked in, so I can't change it, but nobody answered if my idea of percentage is right. I think it is, as it is supposed to be what percentage of the GT I am, not the GT in me. There probably is some overlap, so Dr. D didn't want to confuse us further. Maybe the SWAMI program is not able to calulate everything.  It's almost a miracle that it can do what it does!
Thanx again, Dr. D!!

[PS. It said I was reactive. Since 2 of the 3 O GTs are reactive, I could be mostly a gatherer & could still be reactive. I see reactive as well as gatherer traits in myself.   "We are fearfully & wonderfully made!"]
That's enough for today!

You will not see figures in the 90s. Numbers in the thirties are common (for all GenoTypes not just Explorer).

The numbers reflect a percentage match at a particular stage in the process.  SWAMI makes multiple passes and will adjust the diet to meet the part of your genetic profile that is not an exact fit with your GenoType.

I have never seen 100% and do not expect to. But I suppose if one received a 100% match one could just eat the Explorer diet in the book and not need SWAMI.

Will the percentage change as one progresses along in eating according to SWAMI?

If some locked data is incorrect you can contact NAP to reset a locked field for you.

If you do not have wrong input data, I would assume the percentage given is correct.

The percentage is mostly an intellectual curiosity. We cannot change it anyway.  SWAMI works regardless of the percentage given.  

In SWAMI people can be "reactive" and belong to a GenoType that is not "reactive" in the book.

As the input data changes the percentage given will change. It could increase or decrease.
