Visual identification of body builds types.
Contours of human figures and canon i-jing.

During visual identification of body builds types it is necessary to consider that adjacent levels of human physical shape are interfaced.
Narrow waist is more appreciable if shoulders and bones of pelvis are wide.
Wide waist is more appreciable if shoulders and bones of pelvis are narrow.
As waist is adjacent level of a body with shoulders and bones of pelvis.
Narrow bones of pelvis are more appreciable if waist and hips are wide.
Wide bones of pelvis are more appreciable if waist and hips are narrow.
As bones of pelvis are adjacent level of a body with waist and hips.
To not be mistaken during visual identification of wide and narrow levels of a body it is possible to use vertical alignments or linear graduations which are shown on the chart.

ratio of real physical contours of human bodies with visual linear graduations Horizontal lines on the chart divide frontal projection of a human body to four levels.
Each level corresponds to one line of tetragram i-jing.
If shoulders of a person are wide then draw binary line of tetragram in white field.
If shoulders are narrow then draw unary line of tetragram in white field.
Also draw unary or binary lines for other levels of human figure, and as a result it will turn out tetragram i-jing which corresponds to type of body build.
To identify sizes of body levels it is possible to use vertical linear graduations as visual alignments. Namely it is possible to observe rules according to which contours of body levels are wide or narrow concerning three linear graduations.
Shoulders and hips.
Wide on third linear graduation.
Narrow on second linear graduation.
Waist and bones of pelvis.
Wide on second linear graduation.
Narrow on first linear graduation.
It is necessary to consider approximate ratio of real physical contours of human bodies with visual alignments of vertical linear graduations.
Also during visual identification of human types of body builds it is possible to observe following rules.
If contours of shoulders and hips are on one vertical graduation then should be designated by identical lines of the canon i-jing.
If contours of shoulders and hips are on different vertical graduations then should be designated by different lines of the canon i-jing.
Hips should be designated by unary and bones of pelvis by binary lines of i-jing if contours of these levels of a body are on one vertical graduation.
Bones of pelvis should be designated by unary and waist by binary lines of i-jing if contours of these levels of a body are on one vertical graduation.

These are key rules which are necessary for identification of sixteen types of body builds in frontal face-to-face projections. But it is necessary to consider that there are exceptions to the rules as individual proportions and sizes of human bodies can be very complex for visual identification. Therefore it is necessary to correlate approximately visual alignments of vertical linear graduations and symbolical figures of body builds to physical shapes of real people.
When formal sizes of body levels are identified and lines of tetragram i-jing are drawn then it is possible to use next table to find serial number of corresponding type of human build in gallery.

formal sizes of body levels and lines of tetragrams i-jing in the table Pay attention that to physical proportions of male figures in the table there correspond eight types of body builds with serial numbers 1, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12, 14, 15. And types of body builds with serial numbers 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16 have wide hips which in a greater degree correspond to corporal parameters of women.
But nevertheless during visual identification of body types is necessary for considering that male physical shapes can correspond to obvious female figures. Or female physical shapes can correspond to obvious male figures of body builds.
In particular real body of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten or Echnaton had female proportional structure which was similarl to corporal forms of his royal wife Nefertiti, that is shown in photos.

Image of male body of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten or Echnaton is shown at the left.
Image of female body of royal wife Nefertiti is shown at the right.
Type of body build of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten or Echnaton corresponds to 16th tetragram of the canon i-jing, because shoulders, bones of pelvis and hips are wide, but waist is narrow.
Type of body build of Egyptian royal wife Nefertiti corresponds to 7th tetragram of the canon i-jing, because shoulders and hips are wide, but bones of pelvis and waist are narrow.
The shown images are photos of statues among exhibits in collection of the Egyptian Museum of ancient history in Cairo.

For visual identification of body builds types in lateral projections of physical figures it is possible to use following chart:

visual identification of body builds by linear graduations of vertical alignments If back of a person is expressed then draw binary line of hexagram i-jing in corresponding white field of the chart.
If back is not expressed then draw unary line of hexagram i-jing in corresponding white field.
Also draw unary or binary lines for other levels of human physical figure, and as a result it will turn out hexagram of the canon i-jing which corresponds to type of body build.
As alignments during visual identification it is possible to use five vertical linear graduations, namely it is possible to observe following rules.
Breast, abdomen, and forward muscles of legs.
Expressed on first linear graduation.
Not expressed on second linear graduation.
Formal sizes of breast should be measured according to physical parameters of thorax and breastbone.
Back and buttocks.
Expressed on fifth linear graduation.
Not expressed on fourth linear graduation.
Waist.
Expressed on fourth linear graduation.
Not expressed on third linear graduation.
Third linear graduation on the chart is compared with vertical axis of balance in human body. Also fourth linear graduation is necessary for correlating with vertical axis of body balance if contours of waist are expressed and coincide with fourth line of vertical visual alignment. Namely during visual identification of body build types it is necessary to consider that human waist cannot has deviation from vertical axis of balance, because lumbar part of backbone determines geometrical centre of gravity in physical figure.
Look information about vertical axis of balance and geometrical centre of gravity in human physical figures on pages of this website in section where positions of corporal shapes or poses of bodies are described.
Also during visual identification of human types of body builds it is necessary to consider that linear graduations of vertical alignments on the chart correspond with contours of real human figures approximately.

When formal sizes of body levels are identified and lines in hexagram i-jing are drawn then by means of next table you can find serial number of corresponding type of human build.

identification of human types of body builds and physical figures in gallery Verticals of the table contain hexagram i-jing with identical top three lines.
Horizontals of the table contain hexagram i-jing with identical bottom three lines.
According to verticals and horizontals in the table it is possible to find hexagram which corresponds to type of body build, and then according with serial number it is possible to find corresponding image of physical figure in gallery.
Alongside with visual methods it is possible to use astrological calculations for identification of human types of body builds. Namely it is possible to identify formal parameters of human bodies according to positions of planets in zodiac signs and houses within astrological circle in horoscopes and celestial birth maps of people.
Look information about methods for identification of human physical figures according to positions of astrological planets in celestial birth maps and natal charts or horoscopes on pages of this website in section which refers to correlations of bodies.
Other number of formal levels can be allocated in human physical shapes, and there can be more complex logic designs according to which it is possible to systematize types of body builds. But complex logic designs are not expedient, because four and six formal levels in frontal face-to-face and lateral projections of physical body are sufficient for analytical viewing of psychological characteristics and features of human personality. Because four and six formal levels of physical shapes correspond to symbols of the Chinese canon i-jing which is universal logic system commensurable with forms of human body and psychological characteristics of personality in the context of contemporary medicine and modern psychology, or in the context of ancient medical knowledge about human morphology and physiology.
Also symbols of the canon i-jing are commensurable with psychological characteristics which correspond to formal features and character traits of human face in the context of physiognomy.
According to symbols of the canon i-jing it is possible to consider anthropognomy of human body and physiognomy of facial features as uniform complex of knowledge.
Look information about ratio of Chinese symbols of the canon i-jing with physiognomy of human facial features on pages of other website www.emotions.64g.ru/en.htm.
Look information about formal parameters of physical bodies in the context of contemporary medicine and modern psychology, also in the context of ancient medical knowledge on human morphology and physiology further in this section on pages of website www.labyrinthgallery.64g.ru.

Following page presents methods for total analysis of psychological characteristics which are connected with conjunctions of body builds in frontal and lateral projections of human physical shapes.
