We had a discussion of this a while back... I say Tesla was basically Dinaric, but some other people said Eastern Mediterranean. I think the jury was split on that one. I still say Dinaric though x_p

I'll split the difference and say Dinaricized Med.

I'd say he was probably Dinaric. Wasent he from Serbia or Croatia?

Actually a Serb born in Austria-Hungary to be precise.

Rather Pontid-Dinaroid, IMHO

Pontid.

His eyes seems to be light. I looked it up and it seems like its true:

"Although many of Tesla's ancestors were dark eyed, his eyes were a gray-blue. He claimed his eyes were originally darker, but that as a result of the excessive use of his brain their color changed. His mother's eyes, however, were gray and so are those of some of his nephews. It is probable, therefore, that his gray eyes were inherited, rather than faded by excessive use of the brain.
Tesla grew to be very tall and very slender-tallness was a family and a national trait. When he attained full growth he was exactly two meters, or six feet two and one-quarter inches tall. While his body was slender, it was built within normal proportions. His hands, however, and particularly his thumbs, seemed unusually long."

Interesting information. Not like I would describe a Pontid.

Wow, there are many other descriptions in that article:

1)
"He has eyes set very far back in his head. They are rather light. I asked him how he could have such light eyes and be a Slav. He told me that his eyes were once much darker, but that using his mind a great deal had made them many shades lighter. I have often heard it said that using the brain makes the eyes lighter in color. Tesla's confirmation of the theory through his personal experience is important. He is very thin, is more than six feet tall, and weighs less than a hundred and forty pounds. He has very big hands. His thumbs are remarkably big, even for such big hands. They are extraordinarily big. This is a good sign. The thumb is the intellectual part of the hand. The apes have very small thumbs. Study them and you will notice this.
Nikola Tesla has a head that spreads out at the top like a fan. His head is shaped like a wedge. His chin is as pointed as an ice-pick. His mouth is too small. His chin, though not weak, is not strong enough. His face cannot be studied and judged like the faces of other men, for he is not a worker in practical fields. He lives his life up in the top of his head, where ideas are born, and up there he has plenty of room. His hair is jet black and curly."

2)
"So far as personal appearance goes no one can look upon him without feeling his force. He is more than six feet tall and very slender. Yet he possesses great physical power. His hands are large, his thumbs abnormally long, and this is a sign of great intelligence. His hair is black and straight, a deep shining black. He brushes it sharply from over his ears, so that it makes a ridge with serrated edges. His cheekbones are high and prominent, the mark of the Slav: his skin is like marble that age has given the First searing of yellow. His eyes are blue, deeply set, and they burn like balls of fire. Those weird flashes of light he makes with his instruments seem also to shoot from them. His head is wedge shaped. His chin is almost a point."

On a side note, there are several interesting thoughts in these descriptions:

What is it about eye and brain? There seems to be a connection, pointed out by several studies, but can excessive brainuse actually alter the eye colour?

This reminds me of the ideas of L.F.Clauss that the soul forms the outer world. That race is an inherited character that manifests itself in the body.

"Keineswegs ist nach Clauss der Mensch seelisch so anders veranlagt, weil sein Körper zu diesem oder jenem leiblchen Typus gehört, nicht ist – um konkrete Beispiele zu geben – der Basedowoide als solcher disintegriert oder der Astheniker als solcher schizoid, sondern – und darin äußert sich die scharfe, ja überscharfe geisteswissenschaftliche Einstellung – umgekehrt. Die Gestalt des Leibes wird also von der Gestalt der Seele "bedingt", da diese seiner "bedarf". Auch die Unterschiede der Rassen sind daher nur Unterschiede des "inneren Gesetzes", sind Stilunterschiede, die sich sogar in Bauten, Landschaft, Tierwelt mitäußern. Rasse ist also, ähnlich wie bei Chamberlain, Charakter schlechthin, und doch mehr, denn er ist gleichzeitig auch Leibbildner. "

A connection between thumbs and intelligence? Wow, the newspapers at that time have been far more intersting than today. No shyness on racial issues.

He is sure mostly Dinaric, imo, he might be Noric.

A Dinaricized German from Heidelberg; although his face shows in exaggerated degree all of the criteria of Dinaricization, the great size of his cranial vault is unusual for Dinarics and implies the presence of unreduced Upper Palaeolithic factors. This individual might be called a Noric.

Pfffffffff...! :rstrange

I think he's just pred Dinarid with some Nordid. Nice, good looking, efficient mix.

I agree with your classification.

But "pfffff"? I think he should know if his eye colour did indeed change during his life.

I didn't exclude this possibility. Only his explanation (excessive brain activity) seems a little far-fetched, don't you think?

Well, hes a genius, maybe he knows better..

But there seems to be at least a connection between eye colour and mental patterns.

Scholar Morgan Worthy did some research on it:

Maybe Tesla is right, it is at least noteable if all his ancestors had dark eyes and his ones changed during his life.

Thanks for the information! I'll give it a second thought :thumbup
