I am 1.56m  (we are metric).  So, not all Warriors are tall, I supposed.  You are implying Andrea is also not Warrior tall?  Well, we come in all shapes and sizes, and besides, we are Swami warriors, each with our own uniqueness.  The height could be very valuable from a GTD point of view if you were fine tuning there, although in its own, it is not considered, but as a ratio against legs, torso, you know, why Iam I telling you this when you know it better than me?  Stop me!!  I guess, nice refresher for the newies.

No worries, GW, we can pack a good punch to anything trying to interfere with our gene resetting, but, like Jenny's avatar depicts, we are otherwise all peace loving warriors.

Whoa. That's not tall. I need to ask Dr. D about that.  He never mentioned how important height is to GenoTyping a Warrior.  He told me the give away other than my blood is the long head..see our long heads? Also check Andrea's picture..in the album...Christina, you don't look like a long headed person but the shot isn't a straight on pose. Do you have one that's not straight on for my studies?
Thanks! I also just remembered that Sharon doesn't have a long head either but she's an AB. Fascinating stuff..

Yes, it is not easy to try to outguess Swami ...  Lots of little variables and things playing in there ... just when we thought we had figured it out!!  

OK, you got me there, it is a moments like this when I realize that I have not been here that long and I still got places to uncover and a lot more study to do in this 'roadmap'.  Where is that album you are talking about?

Well, I thought I mention this, my visitor from Vegas is O negative and we did the measurements today and it all came down to the secretor status: secretor she is a gatherer, non secretor, she is a explorer.

BTW I am not starting this on a different thread, so she can start her own herself if ever ready.

Anyhow, we then went through the traits in the book and almost no points for gatherer, but heaps of traits on the explorer.  On checking the explorers food lists, she identified with a lot of the avoids there as being things she knows cannot tolerate: almonds, oranges, coconut oil, coffee. Now that is a biggie, my son loves coffee and this morning they had some at a cafe and as soon as she drank her coffee she started trembling, like shaking ...  That was very early in the morning,  they were having breaky at the beach.  Mid morning we were doing the genotyping and when she saw the coffee in the avoids, it all made sense to her.  I think I may have pick up a convert in here, and she may be a nonnie . ...

Oh. Sorry. I thought you knew. It's in Little Fishes, and at the top in the Stickies.  All or most of the members have pictures in there.

Also check in the same Little Fishes forum, "Some Shots from the IFHI Conference" (another sticky) I took the first group of shots and I have Andrea in them. You'll find her easier  in there.

I suppose anyone can just go and post photos there, so I will try later tonight.  I have a couple of urgent things to finish first.

Returning to the subject of Warrior Swami lifestyle, I just want to record my experience with the 3 pack supps and multivitamins caps.

Soon after I got them I started the recommended dosage for the trio, 1 x morning for each (including multi) and one evening.  My spacing was a bit skewed there a couple of days, maybe that had something to do with it, that or some hidden avoid I consumed somehow (I am very compliant though!! sneaky things)!.  The thing is that I started to feel not so good, queezy.  That was on the second day of having them I think, not funny to feel like that.  

I always drink a lot of water, but I sort of got this feeling that I should increase my water intake to help wash away this queazy feeling. I started drinking lots of water, I think I drank my whole water bottle in one go!!  Like I was into a water extermination mission.   Maybe I was a bit dehydrated, we had a few humid (no much rain though) hot windy days here!   Anyway, it did go away after that.  So, just in case it was the supps, (my body not used to having pills), I decided to walk steady with them and introduce them slowly to my diet.  So I am on 1 cap, once a day for the tri-pack every other day with the multis the off day (also only once a day).  Seems to be working OK, no quezy feelings again.

I keep this for a week, until I get to recommened doses.  Work with my body, seems to be working.  

I have been studying my swami report in more detail and I am feeling happier and happier that Warrior is what I am.  Seems to describe me pretty well.  Also, personality wise, INFP is where I am at the moment, it describes pretty well what I have been doing here (forum wise).

Posum, i think MF's comment was before I posted this more head on picture.  So, I think I am long faced, or oval, not squared, except when I carry over 30kg.  Remember too, even in this shot I am still over 20kgs over what experts think right for my height.     Less according to my goals

I think you mean ENFP, right? Weren't you saying that the E puts you in the warrior category? Yes, your activity on the board appears extroverted. I think the key, though, is whether you feel energized by people or drained--something that would be most apparent in how you deal with people in person, or really how you feel after being with people in person. I know an extrovert who loves having parties/gatherings. That is not me at all. I am an INFP. Having so many parties would create stress and anxiety for me. I do need social interaction though! I really need days where my husband goes off and does something with his own friends and I have time to myself.

Yes, I have to agree your head looks long/oval in the new picture.

Do you feel different on the Warrior diet versus the Teacher one? The change could be psychological rather than physical, even. I think both Chloe and I felt really "down" and anxious on the wrong diet (2 different ones) before finding the right diet.

Chandon,

Extrovert/Introvert:
Introvert in association with the other two changes I registered here is acceptable by Swami Warriorhood.  You see, It may be related to gene resetting, but, maybe I am not that Thinking and Judging as I thought.  In the quiet of night, when on my own and working here, I feel touched, sensitive, rerceptive of other peoples needs and want to be truthful, want justice, but with tact, harmony, and when I move in those fields, I get energized, like I am doing the right thing, feel at peace with myself.  That is when I become inspired and analogies and representations of situations flow from my mind to my fingertips.  
While studying my Swami report, clicked on the help tab in the personalities section and took the test on the link there.  INFP was the result.  Then I thought, oh not, this is going to make me a teacher, here we go again   But, Swami, still make me warrior, I think the % went down a bit to 49 or 50, but still warrior.  Lists did not change, so it is a cosmetic change, more about finding who you are.

I also know that parties do not energize me.  If I go to one (I do not look for them), I can dance, socialize like the best of them, but then, I would only be at that party because I am happy with the people there.  I do not go making parties, organizing gatherings as such, unless they are family ones for special occasions.  But my door is open to anyone, and there is always room at my dinner table for the unexpected but always welcomed visitor.  The only time that visitor will not be welcomed is if it would try to enter my home with the wrong energy.  I think that my real warriorhood will kick into action and the shield, full of tact and resolution will come up to push the intruder away!!

Warrior vs Teacher diet:
Maybe it is not fair to compare them as such because when on the teacher diet, i did not explore the full possibilities of it.  I think I mentioned here before that while eating as a Teacher I was actually eating mostly as a warrior, did not even get to have the supps.  My life is full of situations like that, it is like my body knows, or something is guiding my actions to what I should or should not do. Like being on off vegetarian lifestyles for as long as I remember, or going in and out strong sporting activities vs periods of meditation emphasis in the lifestyle. There is that feeling, perception, intuition thing coming out, ruling my life.  Now I know, there were my A type genes screaming for vegetarian nourishment and meditation actions to keep the stress hormones in check.  

Yet, I chose a computer career, started as programer (where my creativity  had a chance to thrive) but then took a turn for the worse (for my type) into a kind of inflexible project driven environment.  That is where I spent trapped my last 20 odd years and I think that is when my weight move up and up and up.  There was not much room for creativity or relaxation, bit by bit in a sure way my energy was being drained.  But, hey, there is a silver lining to everything.  Being there, living that is what helped us pay for what we have today in the physical world, did not planned it that way, but it happened.  I am now retiring, long leave without pay at the moment, officially say goodbye in March 10, but I am here for the first time in many, many years, enjoying and thriving in what I live and the vision ahead is bright and clear and I am so releived, and feel spiritually light as a feather on this.  It is so in synch with who I am, from the intra, ultra deep down molecular level to the expressive self of real me!  

BTW: thanks for asking ...

It's great to see you chillin' out gradually, I've seen your T side alot early on more recently your F side is making a come back in what you write on here.  Maybe so many years of programming made your T side more dominant?  I reckon you're extroverted too.  Keep enjoying and having fun!

Neat, I guess I forgot you had had J in your type. I'm an INFP too! I think Chloe is as well. I checked whether J would make me a warrior and it didn't. My sister has wondered if I'm a J, but I don't feel like one at all. I know without a doubt that I'm an I, so I didn't check what would happen if put E.

Sometimes we have to go through passages in our lives that lead somewhere better. I know what that is like! I enjoy getting some creative outlet through my job too, although with this one I also have to deal with drudgery. My husband is in the computer field and is a creative person. I think he gets SOME satisfaction through it, as it is web-based, but needs to find other avenues for his creativity too. (Just as I do.)

It sounds like you and SWAMI have found the right diet and it is a good place to be.

I know what you mean about the programmer/creative remark.

I trained and worked as a programmer before and during university.  After my degree I found that programming difficult to get into and hard to keep going.  When I was producing uncreative programming all day long I would compensate by drinking to excess.  Only now do I know that short-changing my need to be creative leads to destructive behaviours.

Learning is a must, but teaching requires me to have lots of alone time - or I will burn-out quickly.  Although management is not what you prefer, I see that side to you still prevalent sometimes.

Yes, Chandon, I'm an INFP too..We are very similar in lots of ways.  The thought of having a party would cause me stress (although I could manage to do it) I would just
make lots of lists and be relieved the day the party was over....however if I went to someone else's party, I'd probably find a quiet space and prefer to talk to one
person at a time. I can only do one thing at a time...If many people are talking at the
same time or if there is loud music in the background, I feel like retreating to somewhere quiet because I perceive lots of people and noise as chaotic..I used to be able to go to rock concerts...and be right in the middle of blasting noise...but I realize that level of energy goes beyond my scope of tolerance now...  I am not completely introverted.  I mean I do like to be with people, be helpful, but rather on my own terms and in fairly quiet environments.....and although it's just me and my DH in the house since kids are grown and married, it's often a great feeling if he's got something to do and lets me have the entire house to myself for a few hours..I love when things around
me feel calm.  But I'm an artist and artists love daydreaming.  This is why thinking I
was a Warrior seemed so wrong...Their world moves a lot faster than mine

Thanks guys for your insight.  When on my own, I feel best with background soft music (usually the SPA type radio music channel) or just the music of nature through the open windows in the right day (when not too hot outside and birds are at their singing best.  It is amazing how we do change as time progresses.  Maybe when younger our adaptability and need to 'fit in' society and peer groups or work environment to financially survive in a materialistic world,  hides our real personality needs which are now surfacing.  This is the time when some of us can really make the choices, without pressure  We could be partying all day, going to discos or blast our homes with loud noises, but some of us opt to have a quieter life and thrive in what the calmer, simpler things of nature or society (like music) have to offer.  I guess that is what makes me an introvert.
