How to Analyze People on Sight

How to Analyze People on Sight

A very scary book from 1921 on how to analyse people. Apparently their are five types:

  • The Alimentive Type (the enjoyer)
  • The Thoracic Type (the thriller)
  • The Muscular Type (the worker)
  • The Osseaus Type (the Stayer)
  • The Cerebral Type (the thinker)

some fantastic bits like

The florid man’s mind has the same quickness and resourcefulness that distinguish all his bodily processes. The muscular man’s mind acts in the same strenuous way that his body acts, while the bony man’s brain always has an immovable quality closely akin to the boniness of his body.

and really there is a chapter called “Types That Should and Should Not Marry Each Other”
1921 was a funny time
