    FTDNA confirms 4 repeats, "Normal Variant". Not all that surprising.

    The bad thing is that apparently there is no relation between number of repeats and any of MAOA SNP tested by FTDNA or 23andMe.

    I did FTDNA MAOA test for other members of our family and it is confirmed that people with 3 repeats (warrior variant) and with 4 repeats (normal variant) have exactly the same all SNPs in MAOA gene, including rs909525 (T) and rs6323 (T), both for FTDNA and 23andMe.

    In other words, it looks like rs909525 and rs6323 are not related to warrior variant defined by the number of repeats.

    Rs6323 definitely is not a good proxy for the 3 repeat, at least not in my family group, but rs909525 looks pretty good. I was tested at FTDNA for the MAOA factoid as was my son and I was told I carry 2 copies of the 3 repeat and my son carries the one copy of the 3 repeat. At 23andme, I am CC for rs909525 and GT for rs6323. My son is C for rs909525 and G for rs6323. My mom and daughter are CT for Rs909525 and TT for rs6323, so rs6323 isn't working for them either. I have other family members tested at 23andme and my husband and my mom's dad both carry T for rs909525 so the inheritance looks good for that snp though I don't have any of my other family members tested for FTDNA's MAOA factoid test.

    For rs4680. I and my son have GG.

    Here is the overview of MAOA.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monoamine_oxidase_A

    rs4680(A) = Worrier. Met, more exploratory, lower COMT enzymatic activity, therefore higher dopamine levels; lower pain threshold, enhanced vulnerability to stress, yet also more efficient at processing information under most conditions
    rs4680(G) = Warrior. Val, less exploratory, higher COMT enzymatic activity, therefore lower dopamine levels; higher pain threshold, better stress resiliency, albeit with a modest reduction in executive cognition performance under most conditions

    The A version of rs4680 appears to boost working memory and cognitive function compared to G but it also hampers emotional control.

    Interesting about rs4680 I'm AA and the rest of the members of my family tested are AG. I'm the most laid back and worry the least. They are also a lot more hot tempered. My mother is CT for rs909525, brother T and my daughter and myself are TT.

    I have it confirmed from FTDNA. I think it's right aswell. If your brain shuts off during a conflict. That's MAOMA.

    I used this tool, it says I have it, but I am T and T on both sides

    Although I am pretty aggressive and easy to get into fight person.

    They should do this test on military families, and so called martial races, to test the validity. Honestly I highly doubt this has much impact on real life warrior qualities, there is more to warrior qualities than genetics. It has alot more do with exposure to violence at a young age, and factors like poverty, etc. Many other factors have a much bigger affect on martial qualities than genetics
