If you know all of your recent ancestors are Turks then it's probably wise to trust your better judgement or you may end up with a car crash like this.

Are you low on the EA component? Turkic people were probably never a homogenous population in their entire history. We see this clearly in in the many ancient outlier samples found among the Tian Shan Huns or Medieval Uyghurs. Even the glorious Ashina Tribe was most likely from Iranic stock. So it is nothing unusual that some individuals show "unusual" profiles despite being Turks.

At the end of the day, DNA Genealogy should be fun and not taking too seriously. I have seen some users in the Turkish DNA community questioning their whole identity and what is even worse, questioning the identity of other users just because of their low EA component lol. Why? Because of Cehalet.
