    body type information

    Constructing a character profile, using a "questionnaire" I found online and one of the pieces of info to fill in is "body type." Now, I know there are different kinds because I see them every day. But I don't know the technical, clinical name for them all. yeah, there's heavy-set, muscular, petite, etc. But is there a site where I can find this info?

    The common body types are: endomorph, ectomorph and mesomorph.

    Google can take you from there. ;)

    If the form is just for you, you probably don't need (or want) the technical terms. What you need is something you'll understand when you look at it later.

    Seriously, Jennifer. What Joe said.

    I love that they've used Jack Black and John Goodman - both of these big, burly beasts are awesome!

    Yeah, the character I am working on right now is an endomorph. Relatively petite, average height.

    I have a cousin who is part white-part ashkenazi jewish. He looks so dead on like jack black it's frightening!!
