Fisher's Body Focus Questionnaire (1970) permits an estimation of the relative perceptive importance of eight zones of the body. The scores obtained by 377 French students of both sexes on the French version of this questionnaire show that the various body perceptions are structured by two main perceptual patterns, one of which is probably linked to orality and the other to anality. The relations which appeared between the scores and various personality traits are discussed.
