Very interesting. To try to reconstruct ancient human migrations from present-day remnants is not easy. How to tie the various results to the NPA model is difficult as well. In our "Geographic Distribution..." monograph we presented 20 "conjectures" regarding the origin of the geographic distribution of present-day NPA types, but given population geneticists' lack of interest in gene-driven discrete personality traits, it remains very speculative.
Once the NPA-related genes are identified, interest in this topic will increase exponentially. Hopefully it will happen in your lifetime. But don't hold your breath. As of now, there is not a geneticist anywhere in the world who is aware of any of the basic concepts of the NPA model (non-sanguinity, discrete personality types, modulation of aggression, perfectionism as a trait, infertility between certain types, risks of schizophrenia and other conditions, et cetera).
