23andMe Neanderthal Report Update

Recently 23andMe updated their Neanderthal Report, you get this Report when you take their DNA test and it tells you how many Neanderthal variants you inherited from your ancestors.

If you don’t know what a Neanderthal is, 23andMe define it as:

Neanderthals were prehistoric humans who interbred with modern humans before disappearing around 40,000 years ago.

I wish I had taken a screenshot of my variants before the update but I knew it was 102 variants, here is my updated Report:

From 102 to 68!

Not all of the variants I agree with, for instance, I have a terrible fear of heights, I can’t look out the windows or go into balconies of very tall buildings, I just can’t do it.

I do agree with the others, I do indeed have a hard time parting with rarely used possessions, I got that from my father. I have a terrible sense of direction, I can get lost very easily which is why I don’t go out walking by myself.

I can’t really say if I agree or disagree with the salty over sweet one, they both have a place in my heart and sometimes I will eat something salty with something sweet, like I love popcorn with chocolate, it’s delicious.

While this was a nice little update I’m interested in seeing if they will ever update the haplogroups.

Only time will tell.
