    Not at all. They aren't aliens or anything, it's just how a person could be characterised based on their strength, body shape and metabolism - relating this to their personality.

    The whole theory is considered outdated and has nothing to back it up by - i.e. it's based on stereotypes.

    The words, e.g. mesomorph, are still sometimes used to describe people involved in excersize, but it doesn't mean they have stronger organs - just stronger muscles.
