Neurotype Results Look Balanced Overall

I’m confused alittle because it’s pretty balanced overall.

To me that is a 2A with high acetylcholine and likely is under stress at the moment OR who has been raised in a very structured environment and learned to be disciplined and structured (the later two would indicate the high type 3 score).

Is there a way to know which one I would fit into more? Or should I just assume the one I think?

He just fucking told you he thinks youre a 2A

He litteraly said OR

In some rare cases like this I need a deeper assessment of the person. But it is pretty easy to know which one.

You know how you were brought up. Was your family about dscipline, did you learn to be very structured early on, etc. If that’s the case the high type 3 score is likely from learned behavior, not neurochemistry.

If you are under lots of stress at the moment and you notice a change in your behavior then the type 3 score could be due to a depletion is serotonin. This could also be due to dieting hard or using a low carbs diet.

Finally if none of these fit, you are likely a type 3 with high acetylcholine.

Really appreciate the explanation
I’ve gotta think about that alittle more.

I just rewatched the neurotype type 3 video and I feel that I really connect with the training philosophy. I enjoy having a preset weight and knowing what my weights will be like in the future. I enjoy making structured workouts for my self even if I won’t be using it. I also feel that I need to be in control, in all areas of my life. I don’t know if I worry so much, possibly though. About the anorectic part, I feel that I can eat over 3000 calories even at 135 pounds but am always afraid of gaining fat and look at my self everyday as if I gained weight. Even though I feel this, if I am training hard, I will still be able to eat a lot.
However I do like to change it up every so often, not a lot, just a small factor, not every week, but every 2 months.

Doesn’t the type 2a variation go against the type 3 constant exercise selection?

When I first did the test I thought I was a 1b but I never really felt connected to the explosive training, I kind of really dislike explosive training. That’s why I posted it here.

Why don’t you do a main compound lift per workout, train it “type 3 style”, then pick some accessory movement and train those with different parameters/methods? You can change out the accessory movements every training block (however you define those within the context of your training) to satisfy your desire for variety.

I am about to start 5/3/1 for beginners until I reach a certain goal and then change to 5/3/1 BBB.
