BTD Forums  /  SWAMI Xpress  /  Poll - What is your Swami Genotype %?
Poll Data Not Available with Printable Version

What percentage of your Epigenetic Variation is Encapsulated by your Swami determined Genotype?

I find it interesting that the Genotype Diet book shows the standard diets for each Genotype, however it is unlikely that any person will fit a true 100% Genotype profile.  I'm curious to see the matched Genotype percentage range within the Swami user population.

Note: If you're Genotype has changed over time, just vote on your most recent Swami determined Genotype with the most accurate data to your knowledge.  Remember, you're choosing the Genotype that Swami selected...not a Genotype that you manually selected.

Feel free to post your individual percentage in the comments below.

Quoted from Goldie

Dr. D. has stated that the percentage shown is the amount of your characteristics that matched the listed Genotype on the first pass through the software.

The only statement that has been made about the remaining % is what of your characteristics didn't match the base Genotype.

Your diet is composed of food good for all of your characteristics... ;D

100% would indicate the profile in the book exactly matches you.
SWAMI adjusts the diet to meet your true profile.

I follow Genotype, as opposed to SWAMI. In principle, that would mean I consider myself 100% Nomad. But I don't so consider myself. I just use Nomad guidelines and B-sec guidelines and whatever else and end up with my own mix.

Who's to say that I'm not treating myself as a 58% Nomad, say? Maybe I'm running, and practicing, an "intuitive" SWAMI, as opposed to going into computerized information technology?

Who among you can follow and dig what I just said? ;) :D

Since there are six GenoTypes, the lowest percentage one could be is 16.7%, which would mean that you match all GenoTypes equally.  But since some GenoTypes exclude certain blood types, the minimum percentage would be higher depending on your blood type.

Hey san j, I dig what you said.

Everyone uses their intuition with the diet whether they're following the Genotype book or Swami.  What really matters in the end is what works for YOUR body, regardless of the source of information.

What I like about Swami is:
  1. It automatically refines my diet by considering my specific attributes
  2. It includes a wider selection of foods

The second point is important because I am introduced to new foods with Swami that I may never would have considered trying.  My intuition can't tell me anything if I never try that food.

Either way, we all use our intuition.  The real question is: to what extent of information will satisfy our desire to perceive ourselves as living a healthy lifestyle?

Can anyone dig that?

That's interesting.  I am also a 60% Hunter but I am an ISTJ.  Because Hunters tend to be ISJ's, you must match other hunter characteristics that I don't.

As AB Joe says, the percentage is not the 'how much' you are of that GenoType, it is how much of the variation that characterizes you is contained in that 'first pass' of the GenoTyping process.

It is on page 4 or 5 of the diet report in SWAMI.

The percentage figure is only included in the diet report if:

You ask SWAMI to determine your GenoType for you
and you do not ask for an abbreviated diet report

you should rerun swami and make sure to check the no abbreviated report box

also let swami compute your genotype, instead of checking the specific genotype box
on the 4rth page of the report, it will give you the %

Yes, various choices in the Swami questionnaire determine the extent of your report.

In your Swami, scroll down to Box C: Preferences (this is the last box with drop down options).  Next to "Print Abbreviated Diet Report", select "No".

Try that option and your report should show you more information including the percentage of your epigenetic variation encapsulated by your Swami determined GenoType.  It should show on page 4 of your report.

Note that Swami gives you the option of having the Swami software determine your GenoType for you.  I recommend selecting this option and it is also what this poll intends to measure.  

To have Swami determine your GenoType for you, go to Box 2: Serotypes and Biomarkers, and select "Determine GenoType for me" in the drop down menu next to "GenoType".

Hope that helps.

To see whether something would have an affect you can run SWAMI with a value set and not set and compare the diet reports generated.

What affects one person's report may not change a different person's report.

so if I voted between 41-50 % so how do we see the results for comparison .. will we all be in about the same middle,,
Posted by: Niko, Wednesday, April 6, 2011, 1:34am; Reply: 45
Hi Goldie,

Yes, good point.

Once you vote, you can see the results of the survey by increments of 10%.

For results within a 10% range, you can look at people's individual comments to see the actual percentage.  Currently, about half of the respondents are within the 41% - 50% range.

What's interesting is that most people fall in this middle range.  It questions many aspects of the Genotype methodology including genetics, controllable environmental factors, uncontrollable environmental factors, and the Genotype methodology itself.  It makes me wonder how a "100% true" Genotype is profiled in the book with most of the population falling in this middle range.

Explorer 48%. Warrior according to Geno. Dr. D.'s description of the characteristics of an Explorer certainly don't match a lot of mine! Hair and eye color wrong. Not left-handed. Not Rh-negative. No anemia. Among a lot of other things. But who cares!?! When I think of the myriad health problems that so many people have and the way the decks are already stacked against non-secretors I don't have any complaints! I think trying to eat right all my life, and the twelve years on the BTD and Geno have paid off! Who knows what is ahead, but I plan to make the most of what this SWAMI plan has to offer!! (woot) to good health!!

ok - I finished the SWAMI data entry with the information that I have. I now have a new identity - Gatherer. By the book I was Nomad so I'm looking to focus on the food recommendations now for Gatherer.  I think the hardest for me will be giving up my coffee! Anyone have any tricks they have used in this process. It's the bold comfort of the taste in the morning. I'm happy to drink Yerba Mata and Green tea in the afternoon but there's something about that morning cup that just has to be coffee for me and espresso at that! .....I can do this....I can do this.....  Also, I see that mayonnaise is an avoid and one of my favorites is egg salad. suggestions for how to do a myonnaise-less egg salad?
Posted by: SquarePeg, Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 7:43pm; Reply: 74
You can make compliant mayonnaise from a vegetable oil that's compliant for you.

Yes, coffee is a toughie.  I've given it up hundreds of times. :)

I've gone back to steeping both Green Tea and Yerba Mate together.  Then I might drink it straight away, or I might add cocoa powder, ghee, salt and cinnamon for fun.  (Sweeteners are a self-imposed avoid for me, even though SWAMI lists a few as beneficial.)  It probably helps that I brew real coffee for my daughter at the same time.  This at least satisfies the olfactory sense.

Good luck!

More on coffee...

There's a Celestial Seasonings flavor called Roastaroma that taste nothing like coffee.  But it bears a little resemblance in some ways, and you might enjoy it.

Hard boiled eggs in tomato sauce taste really good.  I saw an Italian friend making sauce with the eggs in it, and I said "Yck."  So of course she insisted I try it.  It was fabulous.  Apparently it was done during the Depression when folks couldn't afford meat.  It's not egg salad, but it's another way to really enjoy hard-boiled eggs (if you can have tomatoes).

My percentages have fluctuated the past few months with new information added - secretor status, Myers-Briggs, and now with re-doing my fingerprints (so hard to read then and now), my right hand is not symmetrical as we thought last year, same pattern but different distribution. I've gone for 43 - 48%. Currently 44%. Getting blood work done soon and so it will be interesting to see if the % changes again.

The percentage merely indicates what percentage of your characteristics match the characteristics of the major genotype.  The remainder is those that don't.  This is where a blend of your Genotype and BTD diets are very valuable to each individual.

if the daily epigenetical changes are included...so my picture looks likeweise:




                      - 31% explorer
                      - 25% nomade
                      - 23% warrior
                      - 21% teacher




this gives me the profile of a fuzzy *explomade* ;) ;D.....

I would like to know this one day.  I wonder if one can have percentages from all 6 GT's or just the three for their own blood type.  I say this because neither of my parents share my blood type, though my sister may!  

I def feel i have some teacher aspects and warrior aspects, but the overall picture in the book of explorer described me scarily well, and the foods work great with me.  I also have some physical traits and mental aspects of the nomad (my dad is a nomad) and have some traits of my mom (my mom is a hunter).

I went from 41% teacher to 39% teacher just recently.
If I only change southern Europe to western I go to 38% Explorer.
I really feel like I could do well with either diet...just seem to prefer the teacher.

The "view results" link isn't there. When setting up a poll, there's the option to allow people to view results without voting- or to not allow it. I'm guessing that this poll wasn't set up that way.

I'm very tempted to vote just so I can view the results, but I also don't want to skew those results.

No votes below 30.  

I think this means that if you rate that low for a particular GenoType, you rate higher for some other GenoType. You only see the highest rating in the report.

I am not sure you can sum the precentages. Others seem to think the percentages would sum to 100. If one had a bloodtype with three possible GenoTypes, one would then have three number summing to 100. The lowest whole number of the biggest would be 34 (The two lower numbers would be 33). Any other combination of three numbers summing to 100 would have 35 or more for the largest number.

Possible combination of three numbers summing to 100

Largest  middle    smallest
34       33        33
35       34        31
35       33        32
36       35        29
36       34        30
36       33        31
36       32        32
37       36        27

...


I do not know that the percentages sum to 100

AB's would have the lowest possible %s due to being able to be 4 different Genotypes.  This is the only way I can see to get a %age lower than 30%.

Amazone,
Yes! :) I think you have something there! :D

C-Sharp,
I do understand that ,percentage wise, the system isn't set up for me to be so much of one or another but to basically best "fit" one....I just happen to be one of those that doesn't have a very high percentage of one genotype and knowing how close I "fit" into another type makes me feel I could follow either. ;)

Lin,
When I first ran swami it came out as 41% teacher.
Months later, I re-checked leg and geographical ancestry info and I came up 38% explorer. I verified the leg info, ran it again and it came up 40% teacher. Fast forward one year...If I now put southern European, I get teacher, if I put western European I get explorer. But...the difference is only 1%...
weird note...this is also when one food item changed from super to avoid..celery.

I printed out both diets and they are very similar. Since I am a blend of southern and western Euro I can follow either plan and be healthy. ;) (The 23% is what was leftover from the 39 and 38..to total 100). I happen to strength test and pass calculator points high on both teacher and explorer..that is why my signature says explorer qualities, because I have many. :)

Quoted from 12867, OP
What percentage of your Epigenetic Variation is Encapsulated by your Swami determined Genotype?

I find it interesting that the Genotype Diet book shows the standard diets for each Genotype, however it is unlikely that any person will fit a true 100% Genotype profile.  I'm curious to see the matched Genotype percentage range within the Swami user population.

Note: If you're Genotype has changed over time, just vote on your most recent Swami determined Genotype with the most accurate data to your knowledge.  Remember, you're choosing the Genotype that Swami selected...not a Genotype that you manually selected.

Feel free to post your individual percentage in the comments below.

Seeing as this number can change, and frequently, why does the number matter? If it's 25% Hunter today, but was 42% last week, and a couple months back it was 46% Explorer, I don't see the value of the poll.  Wanna tell us?

The original poster of the poll (Niko) who you quote above has not been on the forums in over 6 months so you are not likely to get his prospective on the issue.

The percentage figure is not usually helpful in providing guidance to what a person should do diet wise. I find it best to ignore it.


Still a lot of people are curious about other people's numbers and the poll provides them with data to know whether their percentages figures are typical or higher or lower than other people's percentages.

May not be all the useful of piece of information, but it is not doing people harm.

I don't worry about it - partially because I don't know that it is possible to know, and secondly, it isn't going to affect how my body reacts...  It is enough for me know that by eating the way I am, the body is healing.  Additional benefits I get from learning more is great, but I'm not stressing about getting information that may not ever be available.

Recently had them flip my caffeine sensitivity back to Not Sensitive about two weeks ago.  Prior to asking them to change it, I had some coffee and seriously wanted to go back to bed and take a nap afterwards.  Yes, I get a little buzz at first, but then I'm pretty relaxed after some minutes pass.  Anyway, this changed me from 41% Teacher to 45% Warrior.  I really think all the cheese on the Teacher diet was messing me up.  Many are avoids now.  I dropped about 8 pounds in those two weeks.  It was incredible.

OK, I figured all the right buttons to push on my SWAMI to get the report.  SWAMI says I'm 35% Explorer and the diet is VERY different from my Hunter/O diet report that I had earlier.  So if I'm 35% Explorer (according to SWAMI) what is the other 65%? Also, I don't understand why SWAMI would decide I'm Explorer when I'm Rh+, right handed, and can drink a pot of coffee and go right to sleep (not exactly characteristics of Explorer).  When I went through the genotype book I had every characteristic of Hunter except that my torso was longer than my legs.  I think SWAMI is wrong!  There, I said it!  Forgive my blaspheme, but something is amiss in the software and while it's a very good product, it's not perfect.  I'm going to overide SWAMI with the Hunter profile because in my case, I believe I know better.

Lady from 29 Palms,

I am also right handed, RH+, and can drink coffee anytime and still fall asleep...and swami makes me 37% Explorer when I change one item. Otherwise it makes me 38% Teacher. My torso is obviously longer than my legs also, and my thighs are a bit longer than my lower legs.
The percentage gives you an idea of how much your body encapsulates that genotype.
Most of us are some sort of mix, some more than others...as in my case. I have been following the teacher/ then teacher swami diet for years and have done fine. When I printed out both types, I checked and cross-checked each food list. The great thing about swami is it shows you the best/most personal of all the possibilities. So, since my explorer and teacher swami's are so similar I could probably do well on either. I am sure if I went and had a Swami Pro instead of Swami Xpress,( due to even  more personal details), one of my choices would be more clear; either a higher percentage of teacher or explorer.
Run your swami after checking or re thinking some of the items...ex; I had to change the western or southern European item, also one of the past health items...Then compare the food lists.  ;) Explorer gave me lamb and different cheese and egg ratings but left most all fruits and veggies the same and very slightly changed grains. I really think I could follow either. :)

OK, SWAMI is getting strange again.  I changed my family history answers in regard to my grandparents.  I only marked those ailments that at least two grandparents had.  If only one grandparent had it then I left it blank.  Now SWAMI says I'm a 36% Gatherer!  Looks like a fine line between the two.  It won't let me change the part about my fingers overlapping at my wrists.  They do overlap but I marked "just touch".  If I get that changed somehow it will be interesting to see what SWAMI comes up with next.  Very, very strange.

Obviously, you are borderline between three different Genotypes.  It seems like every little change is changing the output significantly, so the only thing you can do is get the input data as accurate as possible.  If you need to change a "time-locked" field, contact the swami support people and let them know...

It is frustrating for the few that fall right on the borders like this, but there will always be some, no matter what - it is just that you are one of the "lucky" few!

Thanks AB Joe, I see that you're 34% Nomad so you know my frustration.  I know Gatherer has got to be the weakest part of my profile for a number of reasons, while Hunter is the strongest and Explorer a strong second.  I managed to print out all three genotype diet reports on me and decided to make my own diet out of the three.  I accepted all the beneficial and neutrals in common and will avoid all avoids, even if it appears as a beneficial in another genotype.  Based on this methodology, the number and types of foods I can have are quite limited, but doable.  I'm going to give this a try and see what happens.

Even though I just recently re-ran my SWAMI with updated info re my weight, etc., I have already forgotten the exact percentage (and I am posting this from work, so don't have access to it at the moment), but I remember that I still came out strength-tested very strongly as a Gatherer.  I was actually worried that, since I lost so much weight and my measurements are so different now, that it would think I was an Explorer or something, but *whew!*, still a Gatherer.  I'm glad, 'cause if it ain't broke, don't fix it!   ;D  I do specfreakintacular (new word I just made up  :D ) on the Gatherer diet, yay!

45% Gatherer...no surprise there as I had been following the GTD for gatherer ...just a few minor changes to what I´ve been doing all along...I actually now have pecorino as a diamond & not cottage cheese as I had thought! Nicer!

As others have suggested, it would be interesting to know what percentages of the other genotypes make up the rest of my profile! I guess that Explorer is there also as I´m extremely sensitive to caffeine and gave up tea and coffee about 15 yrs go...dark chocolate and green tea don´t effect me so much, but still I would never have them late in the day :o

Hi all,

I just got my Swami and I'm a 42% Hunter, though my torso is longer then my lower body, thigh is longer then my calves, i ought to be a Gatherer, but Swami typed me as Hunter.

All the details that is being keyed in must be as accurate as possible, else Swami will not provide an accurate reading for your type.

I got my finger-print confirmed and my crania measurements done as accurately as possible, cos if these datas are not accurate, Swami will typed me as 47% Gatherer, interesting.

Before I had my swami, I've been following the Hunter diet and my white lines has since reduced. It's great!
