    Hi,

    I did the neurotype test and the result was as follows:

    1A=29<br />
    1B=52<br />
    2A=80<br />
    2B=35<br />
    3=83

    The test results are pretty close and I dont really seem to fit into anything, let me explain a bit:

    The training of philosophy of type 3 is just to booring for me. I am structured, organized and pragmatic but I am not really anxious and as long as I can control the situation I am also pretty good at managing my stress.

    The training philosophy of type 2A is kinda appealing for me, because I like variation to a certain extend, but its not my driving force and since I am very pragmatic I dont like to much varriation. Also I wouldnt describe myself as a people pleaser, even though I care a bit to much about what people are thinking of me.

    I would say my driving force is to win, I am really competetive and winning giving me a feeling of being superior to others which I know is wrong but I still enjoy it. But I would never play unfair to win. Also strenght training is favorite type of training. But beside that I dont fit into the 1B character profile at all.

    I am highly confused and dont know how to continue, please help.

    Maybe you did the program by reversing the answer? a lot of people did it the wrong so the result is the opposite of what they are. Looking at those results, it looks like you are a type 2A with low serotonin, hence why the high type 3 score. But if you reverse the answer, you would be more of a type 2A with high dopamine sensitivity, the reason why you like to win and challenge yourself with big weight in the gym.

    Thanks for the fast answere, can you give me some advice which plan I should buy and if/how I need to customise it?

    The answers are correct, so guess the 2A with low serotonin is appropiate. I also noticed that the neuro typing system has developed a little, since CT have published his articles on T-Nation, there is a general description about type 2 which is a little diffrent than the new descriptions but it fits my profile better.

    Perhaphs I am competetive because thats my way to get my reward. Being the athlete gives me some confidence and identety. CT also mentioned in one of this older T-Nation posts that I, as a hybride, should train like a 2B with a little less volume (4days). Is this advice still accurate? Because the articles are a bit old and it seems like the neuro typing system has evolved quite a bit.

    The type 2A training methods with moderate variations seems apealing to me. The type 2B training methods also seems intresting. Actually type 2B training fits me rly well if I would include some heavy work (3-8 rep range). 

    Is there something like a 1day coaching? I would really love to discuss this in detail and I know I am probally complicated case, much thanks in advance.

    Looks like a 2A to me.  That’s what Christian said when you have aa fairly even distribution.  Personally I think my test results are kind of weird:

    Type 1A:  31

    Type 1B:  75

    Type 2A:  8

    Type 2B:  36

    Type 3:  107

    I think I am definitely a type 3, but I despise any endurance activity and I love variety in the weight room.  I also put on muscle fairly easily.

    yes the neurotyping system has evolved a lot since. Even if the basics are still the same, we have studied a lot more ”in deep” details that help us to better understand the primary, secondary and third character traits of each neurotype. It looks like you’re a type 2A with lower serotonin, I am myself so I know how it is. I usually train with many variations, but as soon as I get on diet for a photo shoot or a contest, I automatically become a type 2B and train for more pump and also use a lot less variation. I usually find something that works and stick to it.

    Hello, my results indicate I am a Type 2A with a secondary neurotype of 2A. Is it common to have this duplicate results? 

    1a – 52

    1b – 107

    2a – 107

    2b – 101

    3 – 56
