Neurotype 3: High Acetylcholine? Role of Epinephrine?

hi, coach
wondering how often is possibility ( like me) Neurotype 3 with high acetylcholine ( need for exercise variation ) ?
and what role play Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline in Type 3 persons ?
thank you

Type 3 have the following genetic traits:

  1. Slow COMT enzyme. This means that they are very bad at breaking down adrenaline. This means that when they release it. This is why they easily get anxious, overthink everything (adrenaline speeds the brain up) and can have problems sleeping.

  2. Are poor methylators. Down the line, this leads to lower serotonin and acetylcholine levels.

You mention that you have high acetylcholine. Maybe… I would think it is more likely moderate than high. Very rarely will you see a true type 3 with high acetylcholine.

The need for variation is interesting, and makes me doubt that you are a type 3. Because the need for variation normally comes with at least moderate acetylcholine and moderate serotonin, both being low in a normal type 3.

In fact, the need for variation is literally the opposite of a type 3.

Are you like that in “real life” or just in the gym?
