Human Faces, What They Mean!: How to Read Personal Character by Joseph Simms (1872)

Excerpt from Human Faces, What They Mean!: How to Read Personal Character

The abdomen is that part of the body which lies between the thorax and the pelvis, and includes the larger part of the digestive apparatus, and the intestines. The form to which the abdomen gives its name may be morbidly increased by entire freedom from care and study, and excessive indulgence in eating, drinking, and sleep. Those in whom it is highly developed have full cheeks, a double chin, one or more wrinkles running round the neck, short and irregular wrinkles on the forehead, almond shaped and sleepy eyes, a round, pug nose, and general fulness in the abdominal region. They are epicurean in their tastes, prudent, indolent, good-natured, social, and fond of making and of spending money. They are inclined to adipose accumulation, and succeed better 111 the social circle, than 111 high deliberative or executive functions. The activity of their excernent system gives them the plump, and aqueous appearance which is consequent upon an abundance of the vital fluids. Daniel Lambert may be cited in illustration of the abdomi nal form.

The Thoracic form is highly developed, when the thorax is relatively large. The heart and the organs of respiration are contained within the thoracic cavity, hence mountain air, and mountain climbing; striking the chest rapidly after a full inhalation; running; swimming, and other exercises increase the Thoracic form, by developing the lungs, and stimulating the circulatory action of the heart. Those, in whom this form predominates, are fond of amusements, pure air, and exercise. They are cheerful, and imaginative, but dislike confinement, and are usually averse to study. Their muscles are of a fine and rather firm texture, and they have generally a large nose, with expanded nostrils, prominent and wide cheek bones, protuberant veins, and moderate or small brain and abdomen. They are peculiarly liable to acute diseases, and especially to inflammatory complaints. Cicero was a good example of this form.
