    Ok, so if my torso is long, like, from the top of my shoulders to my waist is long, but from my waist to my crotch is short, that is a general indication that I'm a meso?

    Understood. BUT - proportion is a factor of X, Y, and Z dimensions, right?

    Can you cite a source that describes these definitions? If you have earlier I apologize. Larger means what? Longer? Wider? Deeper?

    Again, Larger means what? Longer? Wider? Deeper?

    "Weight" is a misleading term. I am a bodybuilder, and if you consider my BMI alone, at 6'1" and 240 pounds I am considered obese. I'm not obese, I guarantee it. So, somehow weight must be fitted to accomodate the ratio of muscle to fat to bone if it is to be worth a damn in mweasuring anything so far as I can tell.

    I'm sure Americans aren't the only people of the world with sub-optimal diets. Most people likely do not put an ideal amount of effort into optimizing their food intake, but we live in a very deemanding world, and people have the right to choose the foods they eat, no one metric makes sense for everyone. But I see your point if you are considering this from a sheerly clinical perspective.

    Is there any qualified medical literature that associates ectomorphy with inflamation, joint problems, migraines, high blood pressure, and arterial plaque?

    I'd be shocked if there were...

    I have the exact same question. I am "long waisted." I have the torso of a 6'4" man, and the legs of a 6'1" man. My shirt size is 18 neck, 36/37 sleeves. My pants need to be tailor made. I buy size 38 waist pants at length 32, and have to get the waist and seat toally re-cut to make it fit my "gorilla butt and quadricceps." I'm a mesomorph, but long waisted. There's no way I'm an ectomorph, or an endomorph. I am very confused at this point as to how to apply this theory.

    Tilty Red: Not necessarily. It's not just the length it involves the area as it it can be determined on a photograph.



    This photo shows the two areas that have to be considered. The top is the thoracic trunk and the bottom is the abdominal trunk.

    You could take that photo and stretch it vertically and the person would look ectomorphic but the Trunk Index would be the same. Or you could squash the image and the Trunk Index would be the same because it is a ratio.

    For example: Two men with the identical Trunk Index of 1.30 but different heights would be somatotyped as follows:

    60 inches tall Endo 2.5 Meso 1.0 Ecto 4.0 86 pounds at age 30

    66 inches tall Endo 4.0 Meso 2.5 Ecto 3.0 134 pounds at age 30

    The system is fairly precise.

    Without a photograph you probably are in the area of a Endo 2 Meso 2 Ecto 3.5

    This would be close to the 3,3,5 area on the chart splitting you between INTP and INTJ and even possibly slightly ENTP

    Right. My top part is long -- shirts are often too short. And people think I'm tall until I stand up. I can sit next to someone much taller than I am and we appear to be the same height, sitting.

    The bottom part is just the opposite. I have to buy pants in Petite proportion because otherwise the waist will come up to my ribcage or the crotch will hang. Then I have to let the hems out, because my legs are closer to average (but still short compared to my torso).

    Forget about fat for a minute. Fat and muscle comes and goes but it doesn't change the somatotype. Your anatomical waist doesn't change. It is a line that divides the trunk midway between the bottom of the rib cage and the top of the pelvis. The base of the trunk - is basically the bony structure generally referred to as "crotch". (Heh-Heh He said bony structure). The top of the trunk is defined by the point where the neck joins the trunk over to a point that bisects the arc of the shoulders.

    This basic area always remains in the same proportion. With endomorphs the section below the waist is larger than the section above the waist. With mesomorphs the section above the waist is larger than the section below the waist.

    So if the top and the bottom of my trunk are exactly the same length (as they are on me) then...?

    That must be the reason why I have no trouble finding clothes that fit -- I mean, except button up shirts

    is this really meso trait or ? i mean, does breast size has anything to do with body type... because there are meso,endo and ectos with large breasts, ex. Angelina Jolie as ecto.
    Just checking wasnt following thread.

    Keep on rockin' those big titties.

    EDIT: You have pics requests, but ignore that, those arent boyz, more like married dudes, Gosh!
