BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  Small woman, still a warrior?
Posted by: 29666 (Guest), Monday, March 11, 2013, 10:19am
According to the genotype test I am a warrior  :)  (A+, torso shorter than legs, upper legs longer than lower legs, ringfingers longer than indexfingers).
I understand that warriors are usually tall people, and often thin. Well, I am not. I am only 5.4 feet and normal built (never been directly thin). Is it many warrior women who are this height?

Height was probably more often true for previous generations.

Not everyone is the perfect encapsulation of a particular genotype as we all have some mixed characteristics. I am quite tall and have an elongated head but my primary type is teacher due to more teacher characteristics than warrior.

Also, past generations of malnutrition and/or famine will affect height. It can take a couple generations to "catch up to normal".

This modern day in age warriors experience poor nutrition, but not malnutrition. It seems likely to cause shortness. I'm not sure I've met a tall warrior younger than I am. I'm not even that tall... my warrior side of the family are much shorter than I am.

Ok, very interesting. Makes sence that we due to malnutrition have become shorter. I did get a bit to hung up in the height bit. Anyways, I have ordered the Swami now so we´ll see what else is there  :)

Mr T is short, but he seems to have many other characteristics of a Warrior.
Someday, I hope we can find out for sure!

Be sure to ask the SWAMI to calculate your genotype for you, after entering in all your data.  Don't enter "Warrior".  SWAMI has it's own mind about these matters.  ;)

It has more to do with proportions than overall height.

I think that 5'3" is an average height for a woman in this country.
With a lot of immigrants from countries with shorter people the past 50 years, 5'2" may end up being average.
Anyway, stand tall as a BTDer!

Good Day, I am a warrior at 5 2 (very short torso for my long legs)

I am 5'3, I recently checked my measurements & discovered my torso is a bit longer than my legs.  I had this field changed but Swami still types me as a warrior though which surprised me!
