The purpose of this page is to share my medical records, along with commentary, to provide some useful thoughts on how to improve health.

Like everyone else, I'm on my own journey to understand and improve my own health, and I cannot pretend to be knowledgeable enough to understand every detail of my medical records as presented here.

Nevertheless, I think it is helpful to include reasons why my results are the way they are, how I could do better, and also to include lessons learned as I gain new information.

This page will be updated periodically as I receive new results, and when I am able to upload information from my complete medical records.

The goal is to be open and transparent, as far as that is possible. Things I don't think would be valuable or reasonable to include may be omitted, although it is my desire to include everything I can.

Something that is omitted now, might be revealed later. By later, I don't mean posthumously either! Although, of course, I don't know when death might happen, so I might not be able to include everything.

Please enjoy, and feel free to reach out to me with questions by email at mattanaw@mattanaw.com

Myers-Briggs Test Results From 2006

Below are my Myers-Briggs test results from 2006.

These results indicate that I am supposedly of the INTP type.

There has been some interest in the Psychology community as to whether the Myers Briggs is a valid test or not, and whether the results and scores carry the meanings that people suppose they do.

I think they do not, but that does not mean there isn’t any use at all for the test. However, it might be an example of a fiction that people have trouble containing as such. In other words, once allowed, even if it is known to be false, people will pretend it’s true, or there will be some set of people that will be uninformed as to its falsity.

I have an aritcle in preparation to explain how we might better achieve a typology of personality, but am not yet ready to share. In the meantime, here are my results.

New Passport After Name Change

My passport after my name change from Christopher Matthew Cavanaugh to Mattanaw.

I retained my entire full name as my middle name to be sure I can easily make use of both during transition.

I really dislike the photo with the long hair, and I don’t even have the long hair any longer.

But it was a fun moment, to have an ID with long hair for the very first time.

Third Class Medical Certification

Below is my recent third class medical certificate, obtained from a doctor allowed to perform FAA medical exams, in the state of Hawaii.

My last third class medical certification expired several years ago, and now that I’m wanting to continue flight, I was required to get a new certificate to ensure that I’m healthy enough to fly the type of aircraft I’ve been accustomed to in flight training. This is not required if you fly a sport plane only, or an ultralight– so for people who believe they cannot pass this medical exam, there are still avenues for pursuing flight in a way that is still very free and satisfying.

During this exam it was found that I have 20/20 vision and am generally in good health, and can fly without any corrective lenses.

Interestingly, though, I do have the urge to wear glasses and corrective lenses, even if I’m able to read 20/20, because it does not appear that 20/20 is what anyone could consider “perfect vision”. It is not perfect vision, if one is able to discern that one could see better, and more comfortably, with aids, rather than no aid at all. 20/20 vision is merely an agreed upon standard for what the minimal acceptable vision is for pusuing certain activities. Some call this perfect vision, and that is certainly not the case. My vision has been in the 20/15 or lower range with lenses.

With this medical certification I do not require any confirmation about my fitness to fly for 5 years, since I obtained it before my 40th birthday. If I were to obtain this on or after my 40th birthday, I would need to be tested more frequently, ever two years if I’m not mistaken.

There are more stringent medical exams for those who will operate airlines and so on, and this is where the second and first class exams become required, and potentially others as well (this I do not know).



Strong Interest Inventory Results, from February 25th, 2006.

Not only will I be posting results for physiological examinations, I will be posting psychological tests as well, like this copy of the Strong Interest Inventory, and the Myers Briggs, and others I might take in the nearish future.

I think that the Strong Interest Inventory has something to it. I ended up becoming a consultant; a technologist. However, I’m a natural attorney as well. And this very early strong interest inventory suggests that I had quite a lot in common with lawyers. I think I would score differently today. However, I’m in a lawsuit, and I can tell from my experience that I would really like being a lawyer, even today, after I’ve changed so much.

Recent blood test results, from August 8th, 2019.

Areas I’m most interested in, are







Blood test results, from January 2nd, 2018.

This document has two pages, and scans are shown below. PDF

Notice that the results of this test are roughly consistent with the previous test, except with a slightly higher white blood cell count. At this time I was consuming cheese for a period of time, so this could be the reason why it is slightly higher than the most recent blood test.

My ketone level was high as well, and this is consistent with a previous blood test I took around 2009, when I cycled to my doctor visit. It appears the cause of this is dehydration at the time of the test. I will attempt to confirm this by being dehydrated during my next visit.
