I notice that SWAMI asks for your MB type (ISTJ, INTP, etc.)  Is this for research purposes or does this directly go into calculating your GenoType?

If the latter, it'd be interesting to know the correlations, particularly for the Nomad type.  But I don't remember reading about anything like this in the GenoType book.  Maybe I missed something....  Anybody have any info on this?

When you have Myer Briggs profile that match your GenoType, you will see comments like this in the diet report:

# MBI EI(E) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Nomad.
# MBI JP(P) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Nomad.

SWAMI does use Myers Briggs to help determine GenoType.

Look in the strength testing section of your diet report:

Quoted Text
What Makes You a GT6 Nomad:

Calculator Choice: Using Standard GenoType Calculation Tools.
Results

The six GenoTypes described by Dr. D'Adamo are very broad characterizations; no individual is purely one GenoType. Since many of the GenoType characteristics overlap, most people will have aspects of at least two or more GenoTypes. However SWAMI Xpress uses powerful statistical tools to calculate which single GenoType best captures the highest degree of your unique variation.

Your results: XX % of your epigenetic variation is encapsulated in the GT6 Nomad profile.



Interpretation: Good Association with GT6 Nomad

There is significant degree of your epigenetic variation encapsulated within this GenoType. Following the guidelines for this GenoType should have a beneficial dietary effect on healthy genetic expression

The Nomad Inventory


These are the findings which identified your GenoType as Nomad. To learn more about these tests and measurements, consult chapters 3 and 4 in The GenoType Diet book.

    * Generally Myers Briggs comments are here if you had a personality profile indicative of your GenoType

Does this mean that it is better to have a MB profile done?

If you do not know Myer Briggs personality type, you should take one of the online quizzes to determine it.  Several are free and just take a little bit of time to answer the questions:

Oh, I was wondering what that line meant...

"MBI JP(P) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Nomad."

I guess my being a "P" is Nomad-like.  I wonder if a specific type has been sifted from the Nomad data, or if only <=3 dimensions correlate.

Maybe later I'll go fool around with SWAMI try to find out.

lol....I love Myers-Briggs! Depending on my Gemini mood... changes me from and E to an I... and back again... which also changes my SWAMI from Explorer to Teacher...and back again.  ;D

The lists are very similar thankfully... I'm playing with checking in... am I feeling extroverted or introverted... before I make a meal...and choose my food options accordingly. I'm sure that I'll figure out which MB I am more often than not...and land on one list.   8)

Loving playing and adventuring with SWAMI!  :K)

These are what suggest Nomad:

# MBI EI(E) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Nomad.
# MBI SN(S) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Nomad.
# MBI TF(F) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Nomad.
# MBI JP(P) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Nomad.

Yeah, Nomads are more often ESFPs.  Explorers tend to be INFPs I think.

Apparently the INTP isn't even common w/in the B blood type.

I was waiting on my secreter test to determine my genotype. Now that I took this Briggs test is is saying I am "Hunter" no matter which way I set the secreter results. This just blows my mind~

Cristina: Like any other single factor personality profile does not by itself indicate GenoType.

Since you are an A, I only ran possibilities for A. For each possible GenoType you match 2 out 4 of the personality traits.

GenoType Teacher:

# MBI EI(I) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Teacher.
# MBI SN(S) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Teacher.
# MBI TF(F) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Teacher.
# MBI JP(J) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Teacher.


GenoType Warrior

# MBI EI(E) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.
# MBI SN(N) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.
# MBI TF(T) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.
# MBI JP(P) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Warrior.


GenoType Explorer:

# MBI EI(I) Attitude suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.
# MBI SN(N) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.
# MBI TF(F) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.
# MBI JP(P) Function suggestive of GenoType /Characteristic of Explorer.

C_sharp thank you, that is fascinating but would it be possible to run an 'O' possibility?  At the moment I am coming out like Warrior ENTP but some days I am INTP and was wondering if I show more like Hunter or Gatherer?   ::)   :)

Hunter: INTJ
Gatherer ESTJ




Just to state the obvious: There are 16 Personality profiles and 6 GenoTypes. 10 out of 16 personality profile will not correspond with a GenoType.

If you match a personality profile, it does not mean you are that GenoType.  For instance an O that has a Myers Briggs profile of a Nomad, will definitely not be a Nomad.

I got ISTJ and INFJ and both changed my genotype to Hunter.

You would expect all 16 Personality types to be present in differing percentages in a population of any particular Genotype, or a population of any Blood type for that matter.

Gotta love the research possibilities.  

Is research on a randomly selected population being done to validate (in terms of statistics) Dr. D'Adamo's work? Perhaps this would be too expensive for the resulting benefit, since the information will be willingly ignored by most people who could make use of it.

In the GT book under the world views chapter, Dr D clearly explains the effect that our personalities can have in our bodies from a simple smile to a burst of rage (probably not in exact words).  It makes sense though, to consider these traits on our personalities in the total assessment of our lifestyle for better health.  Even, a lay person like me can see that, so you would hope that there should be many other professionals out there taking this seriously.  But then, that could be my idealistic Teacher personality coming through ...
