Haplogroup prediction from raw data?

Thanks for the great response.
Indeed, I am a male, so the Y chromosome data is there.

Forgive my follow up but I'm a bit of a newb with autosomal data and it's been quite some time since my last genetics class.
When trying to determine my own estimated haplogroup(or when an analyst, or program does it), what exactly am I pooling together to make that determination? For example, of the 125 SNPs listed, there are a handful of haplogroups classified. The ones shown on the Promethease report range from R1, P, F-R, R, I, and IJ.
I happened to look up all of the other SNPs that weren't classified, and they're all over the board too.
Is it as simple as looking at the greatest number of common haplogroups to make my own predicted haplogroup classification, or is that not really possible without knowing the STRs and/or frequency?

Thanks in Advance,
