Module 2 : Character Types and Their Symptoms

  • Describes in depth three main “Character Types” (into one of which all human beings can be classified) and explains which type of character is prone to what symptoms – and what those symptoms are. e.g. What sort of person is pre-disposed to smoking, over eating and nail-biting? Why do some people brood and worry over things, so much so that they create illness? How come some people remain calm at the scene of an accident, while others become ‘hysterical’ ?
