To add more data to your survey, I'm 12.5% Swedish and 12.5% Italian. If we can assume that extropic tendencies are somehow related to the mix of the two then the fact that I have extropic tendencies and that I have small amounts of Swedish and Italian blood could be useful in narrowing down the possible genetic candidates. My diverse heritage will not, unfortunately, help in figuring out any memetic link.
