As these measures increase, the length of the body decreases slightly with increasing age. Newman (1952) investigated the depen­ dency of the age factor by using Sheldon's body-build types with a sample size of 40,000 (soldiers, ages 18-35 years). 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.

Overall, the correlations between the individual classes of relatives and patients were low on the measures of extraversion and neuroticism. Only the correlations between the mothers of male patients and their children were substantial. These findings do not, however, lend support to the genetic basis of extraversion or neuroticism. Young, Fenton, and Lader (1971) examined 17 pairs of MZ twins and 15 pairs of DZ twins (all male, ages 19-40 years) using the Psychoticism, Extraver­ sion and Neuroticism (PEN) inventory, a modification of the Eysenck Person­ ality Inventory (EPI), along with the Middlesex Hospital Questionnaire (MHQ) from Crown and Crisp (1966).

For example, Eysenck and Eysenck (1967) study only 12 girls (6 extra­ verted, 6 introverted) who were measured on a parameter of saliva secretion upon being given four drops of lemon juice on their tongues. The authors' extremely challenging conclusions are said to be supportive of Pavlov's transmarginal inhibition hypothesis. The study by Claridge and Chappa (1973) also taxes our credibility by suggesting a U-formed distribution in the respective samples of 11, 14, and 21 subjects. These conclusions also put forth far-reaching speculations as to the organization of the nervous system.
