CHAPTER II. 

 

TREATING OF MISCELLANEOUS MATTERS. 

 

 

=The Human Temperaments.=--By these are meant certain types, forms or 

conformations of the human body, each known and distinguished from the 

other by certain characteristics, which enable those who are familiar 

with these peculiarities to readily distinguish one temperament from 

the others. The existence of the temperaments is believed to depend 

upon the development of certain parts or systems in the body, and each 

is accompanied by different degrees of activity of the brain, and 

corresponding difference in the talents and manifestations of the 

individual. They are four in number, viz.: Nervous, Sanguine, Bilious, 

and Lymphatic. When the brain and nerves are predominant, it is termed 

the _nervous_ temperament; if the lungs and blood vessels 

constitutionally predominate, the _sanguine_; if the muscular and 

fibrous systems are in the ascendency, the _bilious_; and when the 

glands and assimilating organs are in the ascendency, it is termed the 

_lymphatic_ or _phlegmatic_. 

 

First: The nervous is indicated by fine, thin hair, small muscles, 

thin skin, pale countenance, brilliant eyes, with great quickness and 

sensitiveness to impressions, and is really the mental or intellectual 

temperament. 

 

Second: The sanguine is known by a stout, well-defined form, a full 

face, florid complexion, moderate plumpness, firm flesh, chestnut or 

sandy hair, and blue eyes. This is the tough, hardy, working 

temperament, excessively fond of exercise and activity, and a great 

aversion to muscular quiescence and inactivity, and consequently 

averse to books and close literary pursuits. 

 

Third: The bilious is indicated by a thin, spare face, dark skin, 

black hair, firm flesh, moderate stoutness, with rough, harsh, and 

strongly marked features. This temperament gives great will, 

elasticity, and powers of endurance, and, when combined with the 

nervous, is the great, efficient, moving temperament in the great 

events of the world. 

 

Fourth: The lymphatic is indicated by paleness, roundness of the form, 

softness of muscle, fair hair, sleepy, half-closed eyes, and a dull, 

sluggish, inexpressive face. In this temperament the brain and all 

other parts of the body appear to be slow, dull, and languid, and the 

whole body little else than one great manufactory of fat. These 

temperaments, however, are rarely found pure, but mixed or blended in 

an almost endless variety of ways, producing the ever-varying 

peculiarities of human character and intellect.
