This questionnaire is designed to help you determine your Meta-type – the category that describes how you produce energy. It is divided into five sections that each deal with a different primary aspect of your life. These sections represent the five “life areas” that are highly influenced by your individual Meta-Type:
In responding to this questionnaire, please follow these guidelines:
Keep in mind that no one fits every single aspect of their Meta-type profile. Look over the six Meta-type profiles to find the one that seems the most familiar, then compare this with your highest score to make the right decision. The science of metabolic types is accurate, but there are always some “crossover” characteristics from other similar Meta-types.
Remember, an extended Stress Response can cause you to “flip out of your Meta-type” into another type — usually into the type that is just “above” you. Or – if you are exhausted and “burned-out” – you may have fallen into the one “below” your own energy type. If this might be your situation, continue taking the metabolic balance test and follow the instructions for the Meta-type that comes up for you which will help you regain your metabolic balance. In 3 to 6 months, take the Meta-type test again which will reveal your own true Meta-type.
