    Default Somatotype (Body-Type) and Personality

    This chart is meaningless if you don't know a person's body type. But if you know a person's somatotype it can give you an accurate assessment of a person's temperament.





    Just to give you an idea of how it works here is another chart I made of various celebrities somatotypes. You can see where they fall on the MBTI map.

    more information for those who are curious:
    The Somatotypes

    the proposed correlations are interesting, psychdigg, and welcome.

    i can't say i've ever been a big subscriber to somatotype theory though .__.'' have there been studies done to affirm these correlations?

    I can except that body shape effects personaliy, I just don't think it is this simple. Body shape will alter your experiences in life. If a boy is fat, ugly and bad a sports, he is liable to be bullied at school, which may effect latter attitudes. That doesn't necessarily mean that they will be sociable and lazy, though.

    Winston Churchhill was ectomorphic endomorph in build, but his behaviour was far more endomorphic. I've heard it suggested that he felt he had something to prove. It's true that he once jumped over a bridge on a dare to avoid being called a coward. I gather he broke both his legs.

    It's kinda assuming the same as Socionics, in which case, perhaps I'm not ISFP. In socionics, they even say they're hedonists and penguin like... I dunno. Heh. I'm an ectomorph, with broader shoulders than some ectos. Maybe I'm 515, borderline. One of those ISTPs who discovered Fi XD

    so what does that mean? an enfp falls in the middle of endormorph and mesormorph? maybe a bit more endormorph? confused....so...personality traits of both?

    just taking a guess from pics, but apparently an overweight meso would lack the pear shaped factor of endo. i think? i imagine.. maybe that marlon brando was an overweight meso, for example.

    most people when gain a lot of weight become a bit pear shaped. It HAS to go somewhere....


    take Oprah Winfrey:



    I am mesomorph type, but when I gain weight I definately am not mesomorph, and definately not ectomorph, so only thing is left endomorph. Even though i am not very pear shaped.
