Was I the only one who thought that one guy looked like an alcoholic wife-beater...?
funny at times, though
"that one chick is pretty hot, until she talks and you hear that ugly british english pouring out..."
-Yeah I`d say that she was the one who surprised me the most...
I thought that bit was funny too, but hey, dont assume we all speak like that. I speak nothing like that girl!"
Yeah I kind of didn`t expect such an accent from her either.
About the big nose guy, I don`t think he was thinking about slavery at all when he added "as a friend" to word loyal. I mean, he did describe him right after saying for the woman that she would make a good wife, didn`t he?
Everyone looked quite strange, in fact. : /

Cool experiment, but English isn`t my umm primal language so I had trouble understanding. Loved it when both said they look sleepy. So ironic.
To Pinkies: idk, that you`re an open person?
Ooooh, what does mine say :)
[quote="gingernut333"] I love this kinda stuff. I think it`s funny to see how people react to others... do you think that the people were told what the others thought of them? =P [/quote]
Ah, well this would have added an interesting twist: get the camera on the person being told what other people thought of them...! N1 gingernut333
Nah, i am a writer and people watcher, i have most people pegged! Bet your just in need of a hug and someone that gives a damn! A non-shallow type that thinks, lol.
Now i am just going over board. [giggles]
[over kill much]

Berserk505: Lol, i am just good with people. I find that most people don`t listen/understand thier fellow sapiens. I bet your a big softy really! :-P
Next experiment, tell the characterizing subjects their identinty will not be revealed and just wait for small-minded comments to go flying. Maybe I just don`t have enough hope for mankind. Oh well.
It`s surprising how sooo many people said that the other person seemed a little intimidating(if they approached on the street). We seem to be really scared of strangers..! ... too tired to analyse more.
And the experiment keeps right on going.....
RT the video, a couple of things struck me:1) As realblender said, beards make people downright suspicious of you.2) Our racial profiles still define what people think of us 3) Looks can sometimes deceive, thus first impressions are quite dangerous (people not trusting the kid, for example. When he spoke he turned out quite nice).4) Most importantly, smiling makes people let down their guard.
Basically, there`s a lot of things you can`t change about what people make of you on their first impression, but at least you can smile.
"Sometimes, I don`t even know who`s close to me. I don`t make eye contact with people, I`m pretty insecure, and I`m really not intimidating at all."
Barrier much. Keeping people at a distance, not because he is scary, but because he is insecure. Again, the assumption that the name equals personality and such kinda backs up the point of the video. I mean, in reality, the point was missed. Possibly, if i am right.
