Adolescent Changes in Body Build

by Nancy Bayley & Read D. Tuddenham - 1944

There are several reasons for studying body build--some of them at least as old as Heraclitus, others of recent development. An early interest was in relating specific types of build to tendencies toward certain physical diseases. More or less associated with this interest was the study of body types in their observed (or assessed) relationship to variations in temperament and to pathological manifestations in mental disease. More recently psychologists have studied the possible relationships between physique and various aspects of personality among normal individuals. Still another recent approach to the study of body build is in the interest of gaining more adequate estimates of nutritional status. It has become evident that, as a measure of nutrition, weight in relation to height does not take into account the wide differences which exist in skeletal build and in the proportions of the body and its extremities.
