Description

In the 19th century, a new discipline swept over the medical and legal professions. 

This belief held that a person’s personality could be determined by analyzing the contours or bumps on their head. 

The belief had a surprising amount of sway among certain people, and it developed a large following before eventually being thoroughly discredited.

Learn more about the pseudoscience of phrenology, how it was developed, and why it caught on on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
