Our bodies are different. Despite what the modern stereotypes and standards would want us to believe, people should not fit into the set measurements. Those 90-60-90 are not perfect! We are perfect as we are, in our own bodies. It is time to learn to love our shapes and appreciate diversity. And this Body type quiz will help you determine your constitution based on the theory created in the last century that determines three generalized body types. It's sad to admit but, as time goes, society pushes forward the ideas of (uniformity, especially when it comes to the beauty industry).

All those brands, designers, and fashionistas tell people who are "beautiful" and normal. Sooner rather than later, everybody will look the same, and we'll be bored with our appearance. The 21st-century movements that promote body positivity and self-love are like fresh air to a person in a stuffy room. As long as you are healthy, you should love your body as it is.

Of course, I do not discourage getting fit, as muscular frames can endure more and make our organism healthier overall. As long as you want to improve your physique for yourself and not for the societal standards, you are doing the right thing. Do not let social media distort your view of beauty and real-life bodies. You should know that most influencers heavily edit their pictures and post unrealistic bodies. Which leads to unrealistic expectations among followers.

Body types

The system that we are testing today has been offered by William H. Sheldon in the 1940s. It is designed to determine the somatotypes that focus on our physical predisposition and genetic composition that we lean towards.

Basically, the system distinguishes three main body types:


This body type is characterized by a lean and slender build. People of such type have little body fat and have a harder time gaining muscles and weight overall. Usually, ectomorphs naturally have a fast metabolism and can eat lots without gaining much weight. Their slim limbs remain so ever with the extra weight. This type is often characterized by above-average height.

This is the opposite type on the spectrum. Where ectomorphs are sharp and bony, endomorphs are soft and curvy. This type is stockier and quickly gains extra weight. Unlike the previous types, endomorphs require more time to lose those pounds that hide their muscles. Also, they are usually the shorter of the two.

However, softer body lines and naturally more body fat do not mean that endomorphs are always overweight. A bright example would be Merilyn Monroe.


This is the sporty and athletic type perfect in-between the previous two. This type has the easiest time gaining muscle mass. However, mesomorphs can also gain extra weight but no trouble in losing it. Their bodies are solid and strong if they lead an active lifestyle.

Although these are the only body types Sheldon distinguished, many people combine the two types' characteristics. To determine all the details, a case-by-case study is required.
