Excerpt from Human Analysis
In every human being there are five complete systems or departments. Every person is born with one or two of these systems more highly developed than the others. When one system predominates far above the other four, that person is an extreme type. When all systems are practically equal and even in their development, that individual is called a balanced type. But this rarely happens. The majority of human beings approximate a somewhat balanced type, but the practiced eye can see, even in these cases, which system predominates.
For the purpose of emphasis reference herein will be made to extreme types. Combinations will be referred to later.
This classification is the latest scientific result of forty years of research by the Anthropological Departments of the great universities, and is the most comprehensive and accurate in existence. Since the beginning of time man has been trying to study himself, and although he has classified himself according to many phases of his nature, the only scientific classification - that according to his biological evolution - was never made until the past ten years. It is the one referred to in these lessons, and has been so thoroughly tested upon thousands of people that its authenticity and effectiveness are now recognized by scientists everywhere.
This classification can be approached from any angle of the individual's nature, and it will stand the test. It deals with the fundamental tendencies and not with superficialities. The fundamental tendencies of any given individual can be determined on sight by this classification.
Remember, we say fundamental or natural tendencies. The individual may have grown up in an environment which necessitated the crushing down or repressing of his natural tendencies, and to the casual observer the result of this environment may pass as the real individual. But the human analyst who knows this classification will know in spite of the veneer what the real predilections, preferences and leanings of the individual are.
