A part of my body process diploma was to write a dissertation, I chose to tackle one of the most basic aspects of body process which is character structures. In order to research this I created a simple on-line questionnaire which aimed to find out which one of the five character structures I had chosen to study the respondent fitted into. I also created an on-line image analyser which took a set of images and calculated which of these five character structures the persons body structure suggested they fitted into. The results were interesting and showed an approximate 70% correlation between the questionnaire and image analysis.

One thing which is very important to understand about body process is that words like masochistic and psychopathic are not in any way meant to indicate any mental tendencies and are simply the words that Reich used to describe that particular body type.

I am still interested in furthering this research, if you would like to participate please contact me.
