This books information is priceless.

You will almost want it to make sense, but it really doesn't - kinda frustrating.

After reading "the five human types", I came to amazon to see what people said about it, and it was as I expected: many people are bashing it without explaining why, and saying it's outdated. People have noted that the book is not politically correct. Indeed, there was no such thing as "political correctness" back in 1921, at least outside of the soviet union! The very concept that biology might influence our behavior is now anathema in our sanitized, feel-good society. I'm sure the reason for all the low scores is that people started reading the book, where offended by what they read, and stopped immediately, venting their anger writing a review here.

This book deals with judging people based on their appearance, manner of acting and other immediately visible traits they might have. So there are two questions to ask in order to determine whether the book is of any value: 1. Is it POSSIBLE to judge people accurately based on superficial traits like their bones, the shape of their head or proportion of fat and muscle? 2. Is the method given in this book accurate and effective?

Regarding the first point, the book indeed offers outdated arguments to show that it's possible to judge things by appearance. The rationale it gives, that different people have different predominant biological systems (digestive, osseous, circulatory, cerebral or muscular) and that this can be judged by the size of those systems, is not really plausible. People of the same race have evolved together, and mix together freely - there is no way that such specialized systems could be the result of natural selection or specific heredity.

But that the book doesn't offer good arguments doesn't mean it's supposition is false.

If you have an interest in the genetic basis for human behavior, this book is for you. I've read many books on this topic, but I'd never seen one linking physical characteristics with inborn behaviorial characteristics. So naturally I was intrigued when I saw the title. In the beginning, the authors briefly discuss other species and how we know something about them just by how they look on the outside (e.g. different flowers have different smells; different dogs have different natures). They do this to build their case -- why not people? The book discusses five human types, emphasizing that most people are a combination of two with perhaps another as a distant third. As you read the book and discover your own type, you'll be amazed. The specifics are spot-on. You'll find yourself looking at your co-workers, friends, and even strangers in a whole different way, and when you come across an extreme type (i.e. not a combo), it's a real thrill. This books provides great validation for accepting who you are. Indeed, the authors caution that if you try to fight your true nature, you will be miserable. There is career advice, relationship advice, and more. It also helps you to be more understanding of other types. Another refreshing thing about this book is that it's not politically correct. It was originally published in 1921 so people weren't afraid to say "fat man," or talk about making money as a good thing. This book has made an indelible impact on my life.

The truth is sometimes hard to assimilate. We express who we are in innumerable ways.. this is a very interesting approach and I have personally match all different types of individuals to the examples given in this book. Interesting skill to attain with practice will definitely give you an insight into other people by just looking at them.

It wouldn't be fair for me to give this 1 star because it is very informative, and you really learn alot reading it.

With that said, I could barely read more than 5 pages without having to put it down and do something else. It's like a textbook. I skimmed through alot of it. I think this book could be condensed drastically.

My advice is if you love to learn, grab a notebook and pen, read this, and take notes. Then throw the book out. You'll have the info and never have to deal with the torture of reading it, ever again.

Many people simply will have trouble facing the truths of this book....but it was written in an era where one simply enjoyed more freedom of speech and was less concerned about being politically correct. This books information is priceless.

I got this as a free download from project gutenburg and just for laughs I read it. It's about body types as relating to psychological profiling. It's sort of like rudimentary profiling but I could read it and pick out people I know, me included, that fit the profiles generally. Not a bad read, modern, concise style of writing and the text flowed.

This book gives new meaning to 'people watching'. See how your first impressions of people are analyzed. You will learn more about others and quite likely something about yourself as well.
