What’s your Neurotype? Type 2B

by | Oct 29, 2019

Neurotype 2B Neurological Overview:

The more emotional type, all their emotions (good or bad) are amplified, they have a lower level of self-esteem and need others to like them to feel good, they have the highest level of empathy, and are often prone to rapid mood swings.

High glutamate – Good memory, but not necessarily good recall of information, strong emotions, prone to frequent mood swings.

Serotonin higher than GABA – Fairly adaptable behavior, not as much as Neurotype 2A’s but equal or superior to Neurotype 1B’s. The 2B is often seen as “the good guy or girl.”

Low inhibitors vs. activators – More prone to anxiety, tend to produce more cortisol than all the types except Neurotype 3, prone to overthinking and creating scenarios in their mind. Will prefer to stick to things they know than taking risks.

Low to moderate acetylcholine – Memory will still be good because of glutamate, but recall of information will be slower. Motor learning is not as good.
