we presented an NPA test of a PA type who had a high D score of social detachment. This rasises the question as to whether non-sanguine types tend to have higher than average D scores, i.e., whether the NPA test implies a trend toward social isolation in non-sanguine types.
Taking 25 random NPA tests from our data base where the test results were “PA or PA/A”, the mean D score was 53.6. This compares with a mean D score of 45.4 for the group “Asperger/autism”.
For comparison, in our series of males and females who did not specify any particular Condition from the dropdown list on the test, the mean values of D were in the range of 25 to 35.
So, the results of the NPA test do indicate a trend to social withdrawal (or decreased sociability) in non-sanguine types as compared to our general population of internet subjects.
Since decreased sociability should be relatively protective against infection in individuals of a habitancy that is subject to an infectious pandemic, we posit that non-sanguinity would be relatively protective against the spread of coronavirus in the current pandemic.
Of course, there are many other social and demographic factors that impinge on the virulence of a viral infection.
Note that this inferred protection, although genetically based, is an indirect, population-dependent effect. It does not imply that a non-sanguine individual per se has decreased susceptibility to be infected.
According to our habitancy map, the geographical regions corresponding to relative protection against the infectious pandemic are shown in dark blue, and less so in light blue:
