What's Your Neurotype?

Who doesn't enjoy a good personality test right? But did you know that this personality test can give you valuable insights into how you should be exercising, eating and staying motivated doing so?

[DEFN] Neurotyping: "A system designed to help you better select the best training program, diet, supplement regimen for you. It uses a personality assessment to evaluate your brains chemistry traits from your dominance, you can be directed toward the best training/nutrition solution." (1) I'm not going to pretend you care about the science so let's get to it! If you want your own neurotyping training, nutrition or supplementation program, please contact me.


Note: For any category, you’ll find a list of the key characteristics.. You might not have all of these, but most of them will apply to their personality. You’ll also might find that you have something in common with all types. You want to identify your dominance and determine your primary and secondary neurotype. When in doubt, ask a partner to help you. I’ve found they can identify you pretty fast (2)


The 1As are the “intense” persons in a group. They take a lot of space (physically and verbally), need to be the leaders and have a lot of problems with authority. They will do everything to win, even play dirty and they need to always do things their own way.

The 1Bs are all about speed and skills. And when I say speed, I’m not only referring to speed of movement but also in being impatient: they don’t like to wait, if things are not moving it can frustrate them. They have the highest level of motor skills: they learn movements very easily. Sometimes they are frustrating to other people because they seem to be good at everything they do!
