28). 3. EXISTING MODELS IN CONSTITUTION RESEARCH 35 Rees and Eysenck (in Rees, 1973) examined 1100 soldiers for a possible relationship between height (using the body-size index) and psychiatric rating scales. They used a method similar to that of grouping by use of body-type index (Rees-Eysenck Index), categorizing their subjects into the divisions, micro-, meso-, and macrosomatic. Their findings suggest that the microsomatic group tended to consist of more poorly educated working-class individuals than did the macrosomatic group.

Newman's findings indicate an increase of endomorphic and mesomorphic types and a decrease of ectomorphic types with increasing age. Lasker (1953) examined 876 Mexicans and found a significant decrease in height and an increase in chest depth with increasing age. 31 between the Stromgren index ( a measure of leptopyknomorphy) and age with a sample consisting of 267 male psychiatric patients. 48, respectively, between the measures of leptopyknomorphy using the Rohrer index (obesity index) and age.

Ekman (1951a) writes: "The connection is so striking, that it is very difficult not to suspect that some serious source of error is playing a part here [p. " Humphreys (1957) adds: "Sheldon's claims for having established rela­ tionships between physique and temperament are thus thrown out of court for lack of evidence [p. 2 2 2 ] . " Even earlier, Lubin (1950) reproached Sheldon's study as containing a considerable source of error in the calculation of the correlations. The basis of this criticism, as admitted by Sheldon himself, is that the assessment of temperament as well as of body build was made by Sheldon and his co-workers.
