. . .217 111 The Seven Types of Humanity IN spite of the innumerable differences which ex ist between the natures of different men, differ ences which they have inherited from parents, which they have derived from environment, and which they have developed by cultivation, there are nevertheless several distinct and persistent types which underlie all the infinite variations of human character, and group into a comprehensible law many individual peculiarities which would otherwise be inexplicable.

It is the writers opinion that all humanity is divided into two general classes, the emotional and the intellectual and that these two general classes are each sub-divided into three lesser classes answering to the three discreet degrees of feeling, thought, and knowledge. Such a division makes six distinct types, three emotional and three intel lectual and a seventh type is produced by a union of the characteristics of the first and third emo tional types. There are abundant facts con firmatory of such a theory, some of which will now be presented. 2 The Seven Types of Humanity Swedenborg divides the men ofthe Church on earth and the angels into two general classes 14 The men of the Church are distinguished into two kinds, those who are in good, and those who are in truth, they who are in good are called celestial, but they who are in truth are called spiritual.

There is a great difference between them they who are in good are in the affection for doing good for the sake of good, and this without receiving any recompense, their recompense is that they are allowed to do good, for thence they per ceive joy but they who are in truth are not in the affection for doing good for the sake of good, but because it is so commanded, and for the most part they think of recompense, finding joy from this, and also from glorying.

Hence it is evident that they who do good from good do it from an internal affection, but they who do good from truth do it from some external affection hence the difference is manifest, that the former are internal men, but the latter external. 1 1 In every heaven there is an internal and an external and they who are in the internal are called internal angels, but they who are in the external are called external angels.

The internal and the external in the heavens, and in every heaven, are like the emotional part voluntarium and its intellectual part in man, the internal being like the emotional part, and the external like its intellectual part.

Every species of emo- Heavenly Arcana, 4788.
