Samenvatting

In this paper the assignment procedure is discussed which has been used in the study of Schmitz (1992; Personality and Individual Differences, 13, 683-691) investigating the relation between the personality types of Grossarth Maticek and Eysenck and various physical complaints. One of the fundamental principles of any typology is the derivation of a clear set of assignment rules. It is argued that in the study of Schmitz such a set of rules is not specified, and that the information provided on the classification of subjects is too confined, which complicates the interpretation of the reported results.
