Zenphoenix, amazingly detailed description! A lot of the personality characteristics sound like the INFJ showing through. INFJ's also have a streak of social activism and are known to stand-up in life changing and purposeful ways to injustice as creative humanitarians. Do explorer's have that sensitivity or re-activity?

thanks everyone. it was fun to write up and think about my explorer peeps!
I can't believe i forgot to include survival skills!! thanks Dianne! I think that and "adapting to change" is another common explorer trait.
as for David's question... that is a really good one. I know for me i do have that social activism streak. It was super strong when i was younger...it's in better balance now that i am older. I'm not sure about my other explorer family and friends though...yes on at least one of them...beyond that i don't know. That's a really good question.
It's interesting about the cross over traits. I know for me a lot of Nomad rings true, but when i tried following that diet, it did not work!! I guess it's all about proportions, at 50% explorer (SWAMI calculated, just based on my known traits) my nomadness just doesn't stand a chance!
makes me wonder though, when someone is expressing say 35 - 40% of one type, what is the other 60-65% percent? and how does it affect things over all?

Hi, I would like to say that I have realy enjoyed reading all these comments,,, I am a b+ blood type with traits toward nomad but i do niot handle the diet well... I have landed in all sorts of trouble ,, I also lean in great lengths toward the explora and have tryed that diet , which seems to agree alot more ,,,,Im so confused and I believe I should try swamie but ! reading all these comments i think that I might stick to explora for a while ,,, I wish you all well! there is one thing forshore ,,, Im alot happier on this diet than off it....
Lindaanne - Hello! The diet SWAMI report will give you much more variety of foods. It will also take into account your blood type. This Explorer O and her Hunter husband both get chicken whereas B's are to avoid it.
SWAMI for Explorer is great and the diet in the GTD is very limiting, so if you are pleased with the GTD book food choices, you'll be thrilled with was SWAMI gives you.
