What’s your Neurotype? Type 1B

by | Oct 29, 2019

Neurotype 1B Neurological overview:  

High levels of self-esteem but can more easily adjust their behavior to the needs of a situation, fast motor learners, multi-taskers, better natural athletes.

High dopamine sensitivity – Goal oriented, high self-esteem, seeks to win (to get pleasure), loves to take risks, leads by example 

Higher serotonin vs. dopaminergic activity – Less adrenaline production results in them normally performing best under pressure (they don’t get over-excited) but also harder to get “amped up”, less risk of overtraining than neurotype 1A, more adaptable behavior.

Higher serotonin to GABA ratio – While not as adaptable as 2A’s, they can more easily adjust their behavior to various people and situations.

High acetylcholine – Better motor learning, memory and information recall, more creativity, more efficient stretch reflex, greater need for experimenting with a lot of things.
