We measured my mil last year and figured out her type (Warrior) but she doesn't agree with it. Probably because there's no pork on her diet.    So she wants us to get the secretor kit and measure her again, which is a good idea. I think we measured correctly and she fits the personality traits, but she's reading the book again and doesn't think she fits the physical traits.

Can you determine or guess for me what her genetype is if I describe her?

She is a Type A blood type and looks just like the mom from "Everybody Loves Raymond" (short) except with red hair. Can't get description of her front teeth because she knocked them out as a kid. LOVES people and LOVES to talk. She can remember every detail of her life (She's 72 now.) She can remember who the kid was that sat next to her at graduation and what they wore and said. LOVES to laugh. Is very creative, writes poetry, can play a song on piano after hearing it one time. She's a little 'bulldog', same cheek jowls and same stubbornness. Looks young (keeps up with red hair color) and people think she's in her 50's cause she looks and acts young.

Whatcha think?

Need measurements. They trump all subjective data .

If pork is the issue, GenoType does not matter. Pork is bad for everyone.



As Andrea said measurements are what is important in determining a person's GenoType.

Since she is A we know she is an Explorer, Teacher, or Warrior. But we cannot get further than that with the information we have.

Never guess.

I immediately guessed Warrior when I read the personality description in the book....measured not too perfectly the first time....and believed because of a
dairy allergy that I could never be a Teacher because of the amount of cheeses they
should eat. I wasn't horribly allergic so I ruled out Explorer...

I was deducting (erroneously guessing) my genotype based on faulty facts...I appeared to have a more Warrior-like personality because I was actually a very out of balance Teacher.  And I thought my head looked long.  So for 18 months, I
ate like a Warrior.

Three weeks ago, I measured very carefully with the help of my husband before getting a SWAMI and was shocked to find out I was a Teacher and not a Warrior.

Eating as a Teacher has made me feel calm and centered. And I'm surprised
to find I'm tolerating dairy...(the right dairy)  I honestly felt
Warrior-like when I was on the wrong diet.  Don't assume a personality quality
is enough to determine a genotype.

And don't waste time guessing...It's not the way to determine an accurate genotype. Some people have guessed correctly, but I didn't.

I wasted 18 months on the wrong diet....

But there are more type A Teachers than Warriors.  And type A Explorers are often
left handed and rh negative.  So the odds are that a type A is more likely to
be a Teacher than the other two.

But I still wouldn't suggest anyone would want to be guessing their genotype.
Too much time and effort has gone into the science of genotyping and one would
want to insure they derive the most possible health  benefits by following the correct plan.

Yep, there's no pork on any genotype or blood type diet.  Pork is bad for all blood types and genotypes..

She sounds exactly like a Warrior. However I would measure her anyways to be sure. Teacher's can look many different ways when out of health.

Perhaps she needs to learn some humility. It sounds like she is awfully, well, offended by the ideas in the Warrior descriptions. I do not want to believe if I was in charge of a country like Hitler that I would lose it. I also do not want to believe I will suck at every sport I do, etc...

Thanks for the replies!

We will measure carefully this time, but I truly believe she is a warrior, since I know a Teacher and her body type is completely different from my mil. But....a lot of it could be genetics, i.e. her father was short, so she is short, whereas my Teacher friend is tall and warrior description from book is tall.  

We will definitely do secreter test and measurements again.

btw, I do believe each type has it's own personality, so I was hoping this would ring a bell with someone.

She's someone who for years carried onion and tomatoes and a paring knife in her purse, so she could always snack on tomatoes and/or onions. So yes, she's offended when the warrior diet said no tomatoes (they're occasional). She can add them back in but only if she cleans the pork and other avoids out of her diet for awhile. Honestly, she'll probably never take them out of her diet but that's okay if she does some other big changes.

P.s. I was joking about the pork, no diet includes pork except her own personal tastes, believe me we've been hounding her about including pork in her diet for years.

Yes each genotype has its own personality but some overlap does occur.
An unhealthy diet can lead to unhealthy personality.

The pork will always hurt her and always keep her weight up I assume. I mean unless it is once a month or less. If it is weekly it will probably always be stored as fat and cause problems in the intestines.

My brother is a Warrior and removing red meat has made him lose fat and gain muscle. He does not even eat enough fish or vegetable protein but it is still happening.

Once you have accurate measurements and secretor status you might want to try SWAMI and see how tomatoes are rated. They might move up from a black dot (then again they might become a permanent avoid).
