The Average Face From Your Country [Pic]

What does the average face of a your country look like? Would it look like you? Your neighbor? Your boyfriend? Or girlfriend? Would you recognize any familiar traits or do you think it would be completely alien?

FaceResearch.orgrecently released a experiment conducted by psychologists at the University of Glasgow, which answers those very questions.

First, travel back to the 1800″s where psychologist Sir Francis Galton was exploring mankinds appearance. He was pioneering the technique of adding multiples portraits on top of one another in order to form one unique face.

It was his technique that formed the basis of this study, only this time computer enhancements were used to add a more distinct feel to each image.

Strangely, there is no information on just how many people were included in the sample or indeed how they were selected in the first place. It is nonetheless a fascinating glimpse into a world where despite our cultural, political and religious differences – on the surface at least, we”re not so different after all.

FaceResearch.org allows you to participate in their short online psychology experiments looking at the traits people find attractive in faces and voices. Go here to participate: FaceResearch.org

What the average man or woman from your country”s face would look like, if you mushed them all together and squinted…

    @oobaka & h2oxy. Yep, we Canadians and Australians are overall too good looking so we`d have tilted the averages and given the rest a low self esteem.

    The weird thing is that I rather thought I knew the british chap- and once I knew ( not before of course) it did seem rather obvious where they came from- only worked for the men though.

    considering that obesity rates in the USA are close to 40% I don`t think that the last two are average Americans.

    Rodin, "obese" is like, anything over 20lbs overweight. I myself am 40lbs "overweight" but you would never know unless you asked a doctor. You can look like a normal person and be "obese." It is a terrible and useless term that at this point means nothing.

    Rodin, obesity rate have actually gone down. Also, America is NOT the only developed nation with obesity problems, so lets stop acting like it is.

    Wellllll ... at what point do we stop referring to the Native Americans as the only "Americans". I mean I`m certainly not German or Irish (though my ancestors were), I was born in America with American citizenship ... can I call myself American now? Ooooh! Do I get government money if I call myself German/Irish-American?! :)
