I made some tweaks in my SWAMI measurements, watching Eric's video. I also changed my somatotype from meso-endomorph to endomorph, and TA-DAA!! I went from 38% Explorer to 44% Gatherer      

Reading the Gatherer profile some of it actually sounds like me, as in I'm asymmetrical (diff. palm prints, one breast smaller than the other), I've ALWAYS been overweight, even as a baby I looked like the Michelin Man  , and my ankles seem swollen all the time (that is, my socks always leave a mark and my ankles look kind of loggy  ) and I've got overly developed calf muscles (I'm on tippytoes all the time when I'm sitting down).
Then again, my index fingers are shorter than my ring fingers, my gonial angle is neutral (120 degrees) and I've got really thin skin with veins and tendons visible, and silky thin hair.

I thought I was Explorer because I'm sensitive to smells, but then again not to medicines etc.... maybe I'm a nonnie?!?! I'll know in a couple of weeks..    

Any ideas??? Should I try out the Gatherer diet to see how it goes? There aren't that many differences, I get more meat a week and I get my beloved strawberries back (sf) and chocolate's sf as well..   I can live with that!!

Should I post a bikini photo for you guys to judge?

I had actually been wondering about being Explorer after all, don't know why... That's why I decided to redo my measurements (I'll have to ask Bob to change a couple of things.. again  ) and let SWAMI calculate genotype.

waiting for your photo ..... and perhaps would you want to do the MBTI test as well

I'm wondering coz Dr. D. mentioned explorers aren't introverts but a lot of us seem to be...and even infp/j's ...so far I guess this might be an overlapping gen-issue coz normally we are NT's ENTP/J's are the declared -ones but then this fits merely into our behaviouristic approach but then also INTP/J's as thinkers.....
If I've understood well the enneagram, it might be all 4's should overcome issues and turning to no 1 as an integrative way for explorations ....and no 5 should merge to 8.....hmmm funny is, that it seems I've switchen from I to E... meant here is 5 became 1.... and not 8... what I asked myselve how can we merge from an INTP/J to an ENFP/J.... can't believe anymore... I think there might be some misunderstanding while hoppeling generally around in the enneagram

More of an Explorer than a Gatherer/Super Taster..

I'm trying to figure it out as well if I am gatherer or explorer Just had my genotype kit and at first I thought I was a gatherer coz I'm 0+, gynic, just 5'0 tall, but when I measured again it seems I'm more of an explorer!!! And when it comes to PROP test, I am a SUPER-TASTER , and my index fingers have diff. prints, my left index has ULNAR LOOP while my right index has RADIAL LOOP which according to Dr. Dadamo is one of the assymmetry of an explorer. I have white lines too in all of my fingerprints! To which I have to be more of a Gluten-free diet. I could see my veins and tendons as well and my middle finger and thumb overlap when I checked my wrist circumference, so I have a small frame and an ectomorph. Though I do not know yet my secretor type but so far it seems my tendencies are more of an explorer...

Ok, Bob made the changes (leg ratio from equal to upper longer and non-sensitivity to caffein - I had that ticked but then again I can have green tea at night and still get to sleep so figured that wasn't right), and no matter what I have as somatotype (or MB for that matter ) I turn out Gatherer so I just hope I finally have it figured out... I've been through all three GTs possible for an O I'm gonna miss red wine tho (black dot) but at least I get choc and strawberries as SF
Now all that's left is to get my secretor result

Don't worry about the genotype label. SWAMI makes a diet just for you, using many more variables than the books do.

but I did... First I came out Hunter (mis-measured) and then Explorer, and there are differences in the lists, so if this is the right one then I've been eating wrong for the past months.. but what if I've got it wrong now, what if it was right before?      
See my dilemma?

It wasn't "wrong"  before. It was "not quite right." It's probably still better than following the BTD or GTD straight from the book.

thanks for the heads-up girls  

ok, I guess I just have to get used to m new lists   I'm also comparing sec and nonnie variations, I'll try to avoid the avoids on both untill I get my results. (secretly hoping I'm not a nonnie, like the secretor lists better   )

When I switched my body type from mesomorph to meso-ectomorph it also changed the ratings on my meat list. It made lamb, goat, rabbit, and mutton all diamonds with venison,and moose neutral and caribou black dot.

It's not often that I get those kinds of meats, but when I do I really like them. My older brother is an O and knows how to fix those kinds of meats really well
