William Sheldon’s Psychology

Wikipedia tells me that American psychologist and numismatist William Herbert Sheldon Jr.’s (1898 – 1977), field of somatotype and constitutional psychology correlating body types with behavior, intelligence and social hierarchy (through his Ivy League nude posture photos) is generally dismissed by modern researchers.

Well modern researchers can eat my shorts, for Sheldon’s psychology some of the most sensible I’ve heard.

Heaven help us if we are to be guided by the modern psychology bunch – they’re half-baked fruit loops; and that’s on a good day.

Give me Freud and Sheldon any day over the modern psychobabble.
