Phrenology in Bristol
Phrenology by Professor G Rudd in 1928 at 31 Lower Arcade, Bristol, England
Selfish Propensities. Vitativeness.
LARGE: 6 – Are anxious to protect and make the most of life; struggle resolutely through illness, and have great power to resist disease. Love and cling resolutely to existence for its own sake.
FULL: 5 – Love life and desire to enjoy it, but have not an exaggerated fear of death. Can resist disease with considerable power, and yield to disease and death reluctantly.
AVERAGE: 4 – Enjoy life and cling to it with a fair degree of earnestness; but are not particularly well able to resist disease, or recover from illness.
MODERATE: 3– Like to live, yet have no great care about existence for its own sake. Your hold on life is not very strong.
SMALL: 2 – Have little dread of death. Could not resist serious illness; life is likely to prove a burden.
VERY SMALL: 1 – Quite unconcerned about sacrificing life; have little or no desire to live merely for the sake of existence.
TO CULTIVATE – Set a high value on your life, and enjoy it as much as possible.
TO RESTRAIN – Guard against a morbid love of life and dread of death.
