Caption: Phrenology head. Close-up of the eye of a phrenology bust. Phrenology is the study of a person's characteristics by feeling the shape of their head. It was believed that specific areas (black writing) controlled specific personality traits. Phrenology was popular in the 19th century, but is now accepted as having no basis in fact.
