    So what do you do if your head is the wrong shape? The cynic in me says that “normal” or “ideal” would be exactly like the inventor’s head.

    I hope this is part of what finally discredited phrenology, since it was an automated, “perfect” thing that wasn’t subject to the sorts of subjectivity that a human phrenologist would use to fudge the results.
