    Your ethnicity has little to do with DNA testing. Ethnicity is about how you and your family identify, and how others identify them. Yup, a cultural construct. However in terms of ancestry - the limited test results that you present suggest two possibilities, although others lay between:

    1. You could simply be of very English ancestry.
    2. You could have a mixture of Irish / Scottish / English / Dutch / French / German ancestry.

    If you really want to know your precise origins, genealogy is going to be far more informative than DNA. But based on these results and what you say, I'd say you're probably a typical white American with various Northern European ancestry.

    Not ignorant at all mate Every European will have West Asian. Probably not recent. Farming was brought to Europe from Anatolia by way of the Fertile Crescent around 7000-6000 years ago. Probably also brought by Indo-European speakers from the Russian Steppe. Also, I would have expected Siberian and East Asian to show up with someone with recent Native American ancestry.
