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.
- High self-esteem
- Quick learners
- Naturally athletic
- Explosive personality
- Likes to try new things
- Excellent skill transfer
- Leads by example
- Risk takers
- Performs well under pressure
- Needs to see results quickly
- Explosive lifting, neurological work, more variety (high acetylcholine)
- Builds muscle by becoming more explosive
- Loves to utilize momentum or the stretch reflex
- Needs to be challenged or gets bored easily
- Best transfer from assistance lifts to main movements
- Can handle high intensity and high volume (dopamine sensitivity, high acetylcholine, high serotonin)
- Resilient to stress and recover well from neurological work (high serotonin)
- Olympic lifting
- Any skill position in sports (naturally the most athletic)
