Analysis of Neurotype Test Results?

Coach, Just wanted to see if my assessment of my neurotype test results is correct or not:

Scores: 1A: 73
1B: 77
2A: 102
2B: 117
3: 29

-2A but under stress (because I am under stress)
-Higher than average dopamine sensitivity (higher 1A/1B scores)
-High acetylcholine ( high 1B score)
-High Sereronin (Low 3 score)

Am I correct and/or missing anything ?

Thank you !

Dopamine is only slightly above average. What is happening is rather that you constantly produce adrenaline because of the low serotonin. This can lead to a low noradrenaline/adrenaline score which will give you traits of types 1A and B like bieng impatient and irritable. But will also lead to problems concentrating.

And the more under stress you are, the more problematic it will become because cortisol increases the enzyme responsible for converting noradrenaline to adrenaline

Yep that definatley sounds more like me especially the impatience/irritability which is something I had to train myself to take keep under control. Thank you Coach Thibaudeau. Sounds like I should work more on relaxation and stay away from Coffee and Vodka Redbulls.

Yep, the more cortisol you produce the more irritable you will become

I’m not sure if post here, but I would like to add an observation as far as your test.

You are expanding your test around the world, and I realize that some non native English speakers or people doesn’t speak/understand well, have some problems with some questions and they could be interpreted in a different way. Even the think process could be altered for replying in the right way.

Not only for general population but athletes.

Would be a bad idea access to the test translated to French, Italian, Spanish and German?

It could be awesome and it will expand even more how to use the neurotyping.

Coach, one last question on this subject, wouldn’t the low Type 3 score indicate high Serotonin ? What you said above does make sense to me though and does apply to me, for some reason I thought that low type 3 meant high serotonin.

I’m guessing that its more the combination of numbers that makes the difference ?

I will get the test translater in french for sure (I originally designed it in french). We might do it in other languages too in hte future

Absolutely right

Hello CT

I just took the test and will really appreciate if You could say what those scores means in terms of neurotransmitters levels (eg. low level of this, high level of that etc).

My understanding is this:
Dopamine - Medium
Acetylcholine - Low Medium
Adrenaline - Medium High sensitivity
GABA - Very Low
Glutamate - Very High
Serotonin - Medium Low

Do You think this level of serotonin is to low to try keto/low carb approach to help with Glutamate/GABA situation?

For the next 3 months, I’m planning to workout 4 times per week (following Your Best Damn Volume program) and going high carb on training days, low carb on two rest days and 24h fast on Sunday.

I think a 6 weeks keto phase would work well for you

Thank You. I’ll gonna give it a shot after completing 3 months of high volume plan. I have one more question. Would You advice to do only strenght work (low volume) during this 6 weeks on keto (I didn’t really done strictly strenght work in the past) or rather muscle retention training? I always had problem building muscle mass so my main concern is to not loose precious gains during this 6 keto weeks.
