If I'm 43% Warrior, how do I find out what percentage are the Genotype(s) within the remaining 57%?

The percentages do not work that way.

Read the earlier threads on percentages:

What % are you?

I did read those threads, but I thought that I had read a thread recently where someone said they knew their other percentages. I couldn't find the thread (as usual), so maybe I am remembering it wrong.  :-/

I think it can only calculate one percentage..

and there was no update since, so I take it that that's it. (sunny)

People who have two percentages probably changed the answer to some question on the data intake form and then recalculated thier GenoType.

You can do this to. To get another percentage you can tweak your input just slightly so it flips GenoType.  This is not always easy since the best fields to do this with are time locked.

You might become a teacher by specifying the "A2" for "Your A1/ A2 Sub Type (Group A and AB):"

This may not work for you. You might have to choose something else.

If you get the percentage for Explorer, Teacher and Warrior you should not expect them to total 100. (To get Nomad, Hunter, Gatherer you will have to change your blood type.)

Here is an analogy of why the percentages do not add.

I am computer science instructor. Letís say a student came to me and I gave him an aptitude exam to see how well this students interest/skills/abilities matches those of computer scientists. The student might get a 63% match to the computer science ideal.

I send the student across the Hall to the History instructor. He gives the student a History aptitude exam. The student does not do so well on this exam.  He only gets a 25% match with the ideal for historians, so the History Prof says this is not so good, you better go take the chemistry aptitude exam.

Student takes the chemistry aptitude exam. He gets his best score yet! He has a 79% match with the chemist ideal.

Now if we add these percentages up we get 167%. Which means nothing.


You may want to stop here. The analogy gets a little weaker below:  

Since the studentís score was strongest for chemistry the school might admit him as a chemistry major. His chemistry advisor does not care about the other scores. He looks at the 79% score in chemistry and will analyze the 21% that the student missed and construct an academic program to correct this deficiency.

One of my ideas is that genotypes overlap in characteristics & diet, so that would skew the percentages, also.

Since the students scores was strongist in chemistry perhaps the school admits him as a chemistry major. His chemisty advisor does not care about the other scores. He looks at the 79% score in chemistry and will analyze the 21% that were missed and construct an academic program to correct this deficiency.  


Nice...
