    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

    Greetings,

    I just did the test and everything is fine . I have a question about the results. <br />
    My top 2 categories are<br />
    2B – 75<br />
    3 – 94 <br />
    Does this mean i am for sure type 3 or maybe some mix between 2b and 3 and should i train like a type 3 or type 2b . Thanks for the good job

    As you might now no tests are 100% accurate especially in a psychological assessment, the neurotyping assessment is about 60-70% accurate which leaves a bit less than half (30-40%) for the learned behavior. As people before me already told you, you are more likely a 2A, but in any case, if according to the test you are a type 3, but you have many characteristics in 1B or even 1A that is just the mix of your behavior and true neuroprifile. So you have to play around a bit with the numbers in your training to find what works best for you. The neurotyping system is not a 100%, end to every question solution, but it is a damn good estimation of what works best for you.

    I have 2 clients that are 1B with Secondary type 3. Would some one be able to give me more info on what this means?

    I was thinking an extremely stressed, maybe even life-long deficiency in serotonin or gaba? Which causes them to lean towards type 3 tendencies for security?

    Is there anywhere I can learn more about the secondary meanings?

    Thanks!

    First of all if someone truly a 1B they will almost never be a Type 3, maybe if something devastating happened in their family. Type 1 personalities have a high level of serotonin that’s why they are able to deal with stress better than the others. What I remember C.T saying is that if someone appears to be a Type 1 and 3 they are most likely a 2A for example. Plus, when you are under stress you can “move” to the right on the chart meaning a 2A  can take on characteristics of a 2B and a 2B can act like a  Type 3 when under heavy stress. If they are an experienced lifter, most likely they will just adjust their workouts/programs unconsciously to what feels best for them, until the stress is over. First of all, try to find out if there is any stressful events or situations that are going on in their lives and try to look for more clues about their behaviors. A 1B and 2A can be fairly similar in training style and similar in a conversation as well, so you need to find out what type they really are.<br /><br />
    <br /><br />
    That is just my opinion. <br /><br />

    I wonder if your supplementation would change also with a change in neurotype.. so if one was supplementing 1A supper I assume they would switch to a type 2A will under the stressful time??
