��In order to test the value of certain descriptive features I in- structed Mr Shaw to record the size of ear and thickness of lips as large, medium, small, and as thick, medium, thin. In the for- mer case I made sure that there should be a considerable in- terval between the judgment and the measurement by placing them on opposite sides of the blank; thus an unbiased judg- ment* was obtained. In the judgment of the lips the measure- ment was written in the space following the former. Mr Shaw did not record any middle-sized ears — only large and small. The distribution is as follows :

��mm.

�Size of ear of men judged

as ; Large. Small.

�Size of ear

of women

judged as : Large. Small.

�mm.

�Lips of men judged as : Thick. Medium. Thin.

�Lips of women judged as :

Thick. Medium. Thin.
