Is it rare for a Caucasoid to get a "100% European" profile?


My father got, as I knew already before his results came back, fully 100% (Northern) European.


I've just had this feeling these sites might be run by a bunch of regressives who are more about making people think they're "diverse" than any degree of authenticity.

Not rare at all, even for White Americans. On 23andme, I got 100% European and <0.1% Yakut. The Yakut part is most likely noise, since it disappears after playing with the confidence tool.


I also researched my entire family tree, on both sides. I was able to trace my ancestry back to the 1500s. My father: Scots-Irish and Hungarian. My mother: German, English, Danish, and Norwegian. Which makes me a mixed European

I wouldn't say it's rare.. but I don't think it's overly common, either.

The high 90's.. Absolutely. I mean, my dad I think wound up 99.7% or so European.. I'm only 97.7%.. With 200+ years of America and so many people coming from different places.. While it's not unheard of for people to hit 100%.. I think more commonly you'll see more people in my range.. Where there's a touch of 'other' in there.
