While it is not possible to definitely classify persons in some one gland category, yet most people have certain physical characteristics that stamp them as favoring one or the other of the various types of endocrine makeup, For instance, the pituitary is quite a distinct type of person, depending upon whether he has too much or too little pituitary development, or pituitary function. This little seven and one-half grain gland, tucked deep in a honey cavity within the skull at the base of the brain, exercises a most remarkable effect upon growth, and upon hair distribution-to confine ourselves to the effect of the gland upon appearance alone.
