Just curious what percentage of everyone's 'epigenetci variation is encapsulated' in their genotype profile.  

Mine is 47% and interpreted as a 'strong association'.  

All this new stuff is fun!  

I've not run my swami as many times as I measured myself when the GT book first came out...but I've done it lots! *lol*

how did you find out the other part? Mine only lists 44% Hunter.  It says nothing about any other genotype.

I think it can only calculate one percentage..

You'd think that a percentage of 50% or over would be a strong indicator of genotype.  

Mine leaves 56% unknown...

45% Teacher.  

It changed a bit after I re-calculated my finger lengths to the proper
mm....and added my ethnic background as Northern European.

Information about the unknown factor might be an interesting topic to learn about..

Ribbit, the software gives a percentage when it calculates your GT.  I was just curious as to the range of percentages that people were getting.

Wow, yours is the highest I have seen yet.  You can be the poster child for GT1!

That percentage is part of the First Principal Component:

Quoted Text
Principal component analysis (PCA) involves a mathematical procedure that transforms a number of (possibly) correlated variables into a (smaller) number of uncorrelated variables called principal components. The first principal component accounts for as much of the variability in the data as possible, and each succeeding component accounts for as much of the remaining variability as possible.

How's this...Is this how it works?


I've got 100 keys.  45% of them will open the door because all the little sprockets on the keys match all the little sprockets in the lock...

55% of them might have some sprocket components of the 45% of the keys that made a perfect fit, but 55% of the keys will not open the door because they're not the same perfect matches as the 45%.

The percentage match gives you a glimpse into how the software works and is an interesting curiosity.

What is new and useful: Recipes based on diet recommendations (can create printable cookbook), meal planner, and shopping list.

Dr. D,

I think the word percent makes me think that there has to be 100% of something.  So that if I am 42% hunter, then what am I for the other 58% (which is a higher).  

When I first did SWAMI I thought 1 mm difference would be a tie, and ties go to the index finger, so I thought I was a Gatherer.   SWAMI gave me a number of 41% Gatherer, but it also told me that I am a Hunter not a Gatherer.  So I changed it to Hunter just as SWAMI computed.  

That is why I had 2 percents one as a Hunter and one as a Gatherer.

So that is why I assumed that I was 42% Hunter, 41%Gatherer and probably the rest Explorer.  

But I see that I was wrong after your explanation on First Principal Components.  Sorry, but the word percent through me off.  

Either way, I love being a Hunter and I love my new lists, I even have red wine as a neutral.

Rosemary

When I marked that I had white lines, I was 42% Hunter.  When I went back and marked that I don't have white lines, my result was 41% Explorer.  So when my white lines go away, I might be an Explorer!  Or, maybe I'll morph into something else or become a 'super hunter'.  Who knows?

The lower the first principal component, the more SWAMI is going to weave in BTD/secretor values over GenoType.

Well this sounds a little funny.  I mean if you are a particular genotype, why would  your genotype change just because your white lines went away?

I mean i actually have even index and ring on one hand and on the other the index is actually longer but I'm still a hunter.  

I would hate to think I change genotypes because things change.. is that how this all works...??? that feels weird to me.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but I'm seeing it differently..and think that it's not that your genotype ever changes from one type to another, nor could you actually
morph into something other than what you really are...  It's just that seeing
white lines when you're too close to call a type might simply imply that you're a calling yourself a genotype that is not your real one...When you clear up the white lines (your gut), you find out your true genotype which you couldn't determine with certainty before.

Does this make any sense?  Your real type was always there..You just couldn't
properly determine it until your white lines were gone.
