Ok, two random** groups from two different countries. One country is Germanic, another is not (NE Europe).

Which one is Germanic, which one is not?

What are the countries in question?

I might be wrong.... I am not sure anymore. The thing is, these pics have been hand-picked... and are thus a biased representation - so it would be difficult to choose.

In the first case 12 phenotypes were chosen out of 19, in the second - 12 out of 18, and in the both cases the most typical ones, without extremes.

BTW, I said it wrong - both can be Germanic, both can be non-Germanic :) Just guess the countries.

Fair enough then. I'd be interested to see the outcome.

The first link's people look predominantly Nordic. They must be from the Baltic perimeter (Scandinavia, Baltic states & immediate surrounds... ).

OK, so first one is Skandinavia, what is second?

No, the first one is not necessarily Scandinavia. It could be the Baltic or even NW Russia, northern Poland or northern Germany.

Undecided on the second link....

what i can say is that this group
http://www.villagephotos.com/pubbro...selected=690123
is not from former eastern block, just rerading expressions on people faces i guess they are scandinavians....

Henrik

this one i guess is NE
(again from expressions on faces of these people, not from racial features)

Interesting, more opinions?

there are also secondary signs - the group which I classified as scandinavians feature women with high quality artificial teeth- more common among politicans in more developed western country. Second, one must observe that in average there is slight difference in skin among women - the older women in the group which I classified as scandinavians have better skin and in average less fat - the consequence of better nutrition culture in north-west countries. but that could be merely coincidence

I'll guess. First Link I'd say Norwegians, although a few of them look out of place particularly the second row last picture on the right. Second link I'll guess their Germans, but slightly atypical.

I'll tell the answer later, I want to hear more opinions :)
BTW, the countries in question are equally developed economically.

Here is a third group -

Anyone else? Loki, I thought that the third group would be very easy to guess for you, no?

My guess is that the first link is for Finland (not a thing overtly Mongoloid about them), and that the second is for Sweden (I believe I recognize one of God's Chosen in the second collection).

They are Dutch.

My guess is that the first link is for Finland (some guys are evidently e.baltic and nordic), and the second for Denmark (strong boreby traits) but on the other hand some of them look like English (brun?)

This Fi. guy could be also Russian, Estonian or even Belorussian ;)

OK,sorry for the delay. The first group is from Finland, second - Norway, third - Netherlands. A lot of you were guessing right.

That makes sense. It is great, the amount of subracial diversity we have in Europe, so that even nationalities that are very close can be identified on phenotype alone.
