Jennifer Aniston: Centrimorphic Ectomorphic Endomorph

Jennifer Aniston is a mid-range ectomorphic endomorph.  This means that she is primarily endomorphic but has a significant amount of ectomorphy.  With the addition of 2 mesomorphy she hovers moderately toward the middle of the somatotype triangle.

Sheldon would probably classify her as a 5,2,4.

Jennifer Aniston is:

Endomorphy: 5.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 2.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 4.0 (Nervous)

Balance: 5.0 (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.15  (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

Height: 64.4 inches

Weight Pattern(pounds @ age):  117  @ 20 – 127 @ 30 – 135 @ 40 – 138 @ 50

Simple Temperament Description:

Visceral-Orientational-Nervous-Muscular.

Visceral (Plus) Orientational (Minus) Muscular = SEARCHING FOR UNITY. AVOIDS HARD PHYSICAL LABOR AND PHYSICAL AGGRESSION.

Although there are no written tests that are 100% compatible with somatotype, the D-I-S-C inventories are generally in range of what a somatotype would predict.  This is one of the best locations I’ve found for this information.  Axiom Sofware’s Description of D-I-S-C Personalities When you link to the site check the following boxes for Jennifer’s type:  Steadiness, Influence, Compliance.

1. S= Steadiness (Moderately High)

2. I = Influence (Moderately High)

3. C = Compliance (Moderate)

4. D = Dominance (Low)

Marlon Brando: Centrimorphic Mesomorphic Endomorph

Marlon Brando was  a mid-range mesomorphic endomorph.  This means that he was primarily endomorphic but had a significant amount of mesomorphy.  This type looks tough and strong when young  but endomorphy quickly gets the upper hand, especially for those who can afford leisurely rich dining.  There is a screen test floating around that has Marlon standing next to a board that says he weighs 170 pounds and is 5’10”.  By the time he was 55 his weight was around 220 pounds.  His concern for the down- trodden is also quite typical for  people with this structure.

Sheldon would probably classify him as a 5½,4,2½.

Marlon Brando is:

Endomorphy: 5½ (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 4.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 2½ (Nervous)

Balance: (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.30  (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

Height: 69.6 inches

3. D = Dominance (Moderate)

4. C = Compliance (Low)

MBTI Type INFJ (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: Marlon Brando is a good example of how people confuse big biceps,  and pectorals as athletic.  The average male with 4 mesomorphy can quickly get these muscles bulging.   These are the muscles men like to show off .  However there is a lot more to mesomorphy than just bulging biceps.  The chest has to dominate the physique all the way down to the bottom of the torso.  This is why methods of somatotyping that focus on muscle girth to determine mesomorphy fail to capture true mesomorphy.  Brando looks strong in “Street Car”  but a trained eye can readily see that the thorax ends quickly and the abdomen keeps going.

Jim Carrey: Centrimorphic Endomorphic Mesomorph

Jim Carrey.  is a centered  endomorphic mesomorph.  He is quite high in mesomorphy and endomorphy but he has a leaner appearance because he is stretched out at  6′ 2″ tall.

Sheldon would probably classify him as a 5,5,3½

Jim Carrey

Endomorphy: 5.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 5.o (Muscular)

MBTI TypeENFJ (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: Although Jim Carrey generally looks thin he has enough gut and muscle to achieve quite a bit of mass.  Aside from his publicity about fattening up for the role of Curly in a movie about the three stooges he really does have the ability to be heavy.  As he gets older this will become evident if he doesn’t maintain a healthy low carb diet with lots of exercise.

George Clooney: Endomorphic Centrimorph

George Clooney is another case of a “sex symbol” that is less than average mesomorphy.   He is similar to Leonardo DiCaprio & Robert Pattinson.

George Clooney = 4½,3½,4

Leonardo             =  4½,3,4½

Pattinson             =   5,2½,5

These aren’t tough guys.  They are pretty boys.

George Clooney Is:

Endomorphy: 4½ (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 3½ (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 4.0 (Nervous)

Centrimorphy 6½ (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.35 (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

Height: 70.8 inches

MBTI TypeENFP, (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: It is hard to find many pictures where George shows much of his body.  He has strong legs, but his core is lacking strength.  He apparently played baseball well enough to get to training for a Major League team but couldn’t make the first cut.  Professional athletes need to be around a 5 in mesomorphy and he appears to only be a 3½ which even falls short of the average male.  Clooney will have to be active and watch his diet because he is at the age where he could really stack on the fat.

Fortunately he is quite a bit higher than average in ectomorphy which means he is concerned with his image and that may keep his appearance on track.

Johnny Depp: Ectomorphic Mesomorphic Centrimorph

Johnny Depp is a centered  mesomorph with a moderate amount of ectomorphy.  This means that he is in mesomorphic territory on the somatotype map but is very close to being at the center with an equal amount of ectomorphy.

Sheldon would probably classify him as a 3½,4,4.

Johnny Depp Is:

Endomorphy: 3½ (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 4.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 4.0 (Nervous)

Balance: 7 (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.50 (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

MBTI TypeENTP (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: A big mistake that is made when typing the personality of actors is the presumption that they are in anyway like the characters they portray in their movies.  This is especially a problem when you have an excellent actor like Depp.  Depp is not an introverted, gentle, troubled goth.  He is an extremely masculine hard-drinking (much of his life) chain-smoking (much of his life) bad boy who like most bad boys loves his mother. He’s not affraid to fight if he has to and he’s not real fond of authority.  He gets bored easily and seeks out challenging roles that give him almost total creative control.

Robert Downey Jr.: Endomorphic Centrimorph

Robert Downey jr.  is a centered  endomorph.  This means that he is moderately endomorphic tending toward mesomorphy which puts him quite close to the middle of the somatotype triangle.

Sheldon would probably classify him as a 4½,4,3.

Robert Downey jr:

Endomorphy: 4½ (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 4.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 3.0 (Nervous)

Balance: 6 (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.40 (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

MBTI Type ENFP and Some elements of  ENFJ (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: Most people do a poor job of  identifying the personality of other people.  This is to be expected because people even tend to get their own type wrong.  In addition,  the tests that are available have dubious reliability.  This can’t be emphasized enough.

On the other hand somatotype is a completely objective method of understanding personality.  It isn’t dependent on faulty tests or biased evaluators.  If there is a wide gap between what you think you are and what your somatotype indicates chances are strong that you have made some major adaptations due to some unusual trauma.



John Goodman: Centrimorphic Mesomorphic Endomorph

There are no surprises here.  A seven in endomorphy is not something that hides out til middle age.  John reports that at some point he was up to 400 pounds.  Likely,  he has ventured slightly over 400, but it’s a nice “round” number that surpasses what most people can imagine.

Sheldon would probably classify him as a 7,4,3.

John Goodman is:

Endomorphy: 7.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 4.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 3.0 (Nervous)

Centrimorphy: 5.0 (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.15  (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

Height: 75.6 inches

Weight Pattern(pounds @ age):  303  @ 20 – 379 @ 30 -439 @ 40 – 452 @ 50

4. C = Compliance (Low)

MBTI Type INFJ (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: Few people understand what it is like to have to struggle to keep your weight down to 300 pounds.  John is not only high in endomorphy but he is above average in mesomorphy.  These two components combine to produce a massive physique.  Having weight and the muscle to move it is what got him a football scholarship.  If he had been a 5 or 6 in mesomorphy we would never have known of John Goodman the actor.  He would have had a career as an NFL player.

David Hasselhoff: Centrimorphic Ectomorphic Mesomorph

David Hasselhoff  is an easy person to somatotype because there are so many pictures of him in swimwear.  David  is a mid-range ectomorphic mesomorph which means he is primarily a mesomorph but with a strong ectomorphic component.  His somaotype is 3,5½,5

David Hasselhoff is:

Endomorphy: 3.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 5.0 (Nervous)

Balance: (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.70 (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

Height: 76.2 inches

Weight Pattern(pounds @ age):  189@ 20 -204@ 30 – 213 @ 40 – 222 @ 50

Simple Temperament Description:

Muscular-Orientational–Nervous-Visceral.

Muscular (Plus) Orientational  (Minus) Visceral = SEARCHING FOR SYSTEMS/PROCEDURES.  AVOIDS SURRENDER AND COMPROMISE.

4.  S = Steady  ( Moderately Low)

MBTI TypeESTJ (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: David Hasselhoff is fairly athletic.  He combines high focus (ectomorphy) with significant power (mesomorphy) enabling him to accomplish most of his goals.  His lowest function is endomorphy which means he is a little detached for long term intimate relationships.  Women are attracted to his strong masculinity but eventually are disappointed with his limited capacity for a close relationship.

Angelina Jolie: Endomorphic Ectomorph

NEW FOR ANGELINA  3.5  4.0  5.0  6.5

Angelina Jolie is an  endomorphic ectomorph.  This means that she is mainly ectomorphic tending toward endomorphy.  This places her quite a distance from the center of the somatotype chart.  Sheldon would probably have assessed her somatotype as a 3½,2½,6

Angelina Jolie:

Endomorphy: (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 3 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy:  (Nervous)

Balance:   (Orientational (Sensory)

1. C = Compliance  ( High)

2.  I = Influence (Moderately High)

3. S = Steady  (Moderately Low)

4. D = Dominance (Low)

MBTI Type ISTP Bordering on INTP(Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: Angelina brings forward the common problem of a person who is close to the border of another type.  Although technically she falls in INTP territory she is more likely to be an ISTP with some elements of INTP.  While she is defnitely a peacock looking for status and self-esteem (INTP) she also has a more  practical inclination than INTP.  It is interesting to compare Angelina with Steve Jobs.  They have very similar body types.

Lindsay Lohan: Endomorphic Centrimorph

Lindsay Lohan’s somatotype is very close to Marylin Monroe’s somatotype. Marylin is slightly more muscular than Lindsay. It’s not surprising that Lindsay has a fascination with Marylin.

Sheldon’s scheme would place Lindsay as a 4,3½,4 .  Marylin Monroe was a 4,4,4.

Lindsay Lohan Is :

Endomorphy: 4.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 3½ (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 4.0 (Nervous)

Centrimorph: 7.0 (Orientational (Sensory)

3. D = Dominance (Moderate)

4. S = Compliance  (Moderate)

MBTI Type ENFP (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Lindsay’s problem is her craving for novelty combined with a desire for the easy way to fulfill that craving.  Drugs do all the work for you.  She has been coasting along on her abundant talents.  Daily physical exercise  could give her the personal power she needs to reach the high level she is capable of attaining.

How absorbed is Lindsay with Marylyn?  Here is the answer from Wikipedia:

Lohan has a long-lasting fascination with Marilyn Monroe going back to when she saw Niagara duringThe Parent Trap shoot.[1] In the 2008 Spring Fashion edition of New York magazine, Lohan re-created Monroe’s final photo shoot, known as The Last Sitting, including nudity, saying that the photo shoot was “an honor”.[1] The New York Timescritic Ginia Bellafante found it disturbing, saying “the pictures ask viewers to engage in a kind of mock necrophilia. … At 21 [Lohan] seems even older than Monroe, who was 36 in the originals … [and] the photographs bear none of Monroe’s fragility”.[2] In 2008, Lohan launched a clothes line, whose name 6126 was designed to represent Monroe’s birth date (June 1, 1926).

  2. Bellafante, Ginia (February 21, 2008). “Lohan Assumes the Pose: Monroe’s Final Sitting”The New York Times (The New York Times Company). Retrieved October 25, 2009.

Perhaps Lindsay needs to find her own Arthur Miller.

Madonna: Ectomorphic Centrimorph

Based on the abundance of nude photographs you can be 100% sure that Madonna is a  mid-range endomorphic ectomorph.  This means that she is mainly ectomorphic tending toward endomorphy  putting  her moderately close to the middle of the somatotype triangle. Madonna’s Sheldonian somatotype is 3,3,4½.

Madonna Is:

Endomorphy: 3.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 3.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 4½ (Nervous)

Balance: 6.0 (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.45 (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

1. I = Influence ( High)

2. C = Compliance  (Moderately High)

3. S = Steady  (Moderately Low)

4. D = Dominance (Moderately Low)

MBTI TypeENTP (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: Madonna is an edgy self-promoter.  Many think she is muscular but at a 3.0 she is just average for a woman.  Even though her muscular system is last in her hierarchy of  body systems it seems that she feels it is essential to her image.  There seems to be a frantic aspect to her exercise as if she will experience “career” death if she doesn’t keep up the routine.   As far as her temperament she is at the boundary of  ENTP, INTP & INTJ.   This means the NT is her core and she may incorporate aspects of all three types.

Steve Martin: Centrimorph

Based on some photos of  Steve Martin taking a swim with his wife I am quite certain (90%) that he is a bulls-eye (dead center) on the somatotype chart.   This means that he is equal on all three components of physique.  Steve’s  Sheldonian somatotype is 4,4,4 .

Steve Martin Is:

Endomorphy: 4.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 4.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 4.0 (Nervous)

Balance: 7.0 (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.45 (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

MBTI TypeENTP (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: Steve has a wide range of tools he uses to reach out and entertain people.  Both dramatic and comedic acting roles, musician, stand up comic, writer, critic…  Being balanced in all dimensions has to be factored into Steve’s career choices.

Marilyn Monroe: Centrimorph

It took quite a lot of searching to find a somatotype-worthy picture of Marilyn.  Those who photographed Marilyn didn’t want their photos to look like cheap “girly” magazine pictures so they took “artistic” photos that were often at strange angles or even worse – blurry.  Using a composite of several pictures I am reasonably sure (80%) that she is a  4,4,4 somatotype.  This makes her equal in all three dimensions of physique.

Marilyn Is:

Endomorphy: 4.0 (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 4.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: 4.0 (Nervous)

Balance: 7.0 (Orientational (Sensory)

MBTI Type ENFP (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: It is tempting to think that Marilyn’s “perfectly” centered physique accounts for her sex appeal.  However, it is unlikely that males are that sensitive to the bodies they find attractive.  More likely it is the communication skills that go along with a centered somatotype that equipped her to sell what she had.

Robert Pattinson: Centrimorphic – Ectomorphic Endomorph

Robert Pattison  is a mid-range  ectomorphic endomorph.  His somatotype is very close to DiCaprio.  It seems that the very young girls like the sensitive males.  By the way if you are over 40 and you don’t have any teen-age children you probably don’t know who Pattison is.  He plays a vampire in the very successful Twilight movies.

Where DiCaprio is a 4½,3,4½, Robert Pattison is a 5, 2½,5

1.S = Steadiness  (Moderately  High)

2.  C = Compliance  (Moderately High)

3. I = Influencing (Moderately High)

4. D = Dominance (Moderately Low)

Additional Comments: Pattinson possesses the wimp factor like DiCaprio.  However, Pattinson is less muscular and less orientational than DiCaprio.

A lot of people have noticed the similarity between these two actors.   A search on google that combines  the two of them in the same search brings up a substantial number of sites where they are compared.   Because DiCaprio is higher in balance (orientation) he is further along in his acting skills than Pattinson at a comparable age.

Brad Pitt: Centrimorphic Ectomorphic Mesomorph

There are some nude pictures of Brad Pitt that were quite useful in assessing his somatotype.  Brad Pitt is a mid-range ectomorphic mesomorph which means he is primarily a mesomorph but with a strong ectomorphic component.  His somaotype is 2½,5½,4½

Brad Pitt Is:

Endomorphy: (Visceral)

Mesomorphy: 5.0 (Muscular)

Ectomorphy: (Nervous)

Balance: (Orientational (Sensory)

Trunk Index: 1.70 (Area of Thoracic  Trunk divided by Area of Abdominal Trunk)

Height: 72.0 inches

Weight Pattern(pounds @ age):  159 @ 20 -171@ 30 – 178 @ 40 – 184 @ 50

Additional Comments: Brad Pitt is quite athletic and is therefore quite active, living in the here-and-now.  No big theories are guiding him.  He figures things out as he goes along.  He is kind of the ideal male for a large number of women.  Strong, lean, and fun.

Robin Williams: Centrimorphic Endomorphic Mesomorph

Robin Williams is a mid-range endomorphic mesomorph.  This means that he is primarily mesomorphic  but has a significant amount of endomorphy.  With the addition of 2½ ectomorphy he sits right on the border of the middle (balanced) types.

Sheldon would probably classify him as a 4,5,2½.

MBTI Type ESFP Might also include ENFJ traits. (Linked to Wikepedia)   (See SOMATOTYPE  CHART of MBTI TYPES)

Additional Comments: It is interesting to compare the personalities of similar somatotypes.  Both Simon Cowell and Robin Williams are similar.  Both like to have fun and seem to like physical activities.  They both are very spontaneous; Simon in his critiques and Robin in his antics.
