    Classify Linda Blair

    What would be the exact sub-racial classification?











    A girl I once dated looked almost identical to her in her younger days

    Still no one?

    Come on guys, this shouldn't be too difficult. It's not an exotic or unique look.

    Difficult to tell what her natural hair colour is.
    On the first and second picture, she looks Alpinid, but on the third picture a Baltid influence seems to manifest itself, so she could well be an Alpinid/Baltid mix (Eastalpinid). Some Med influence is also possible.

    On the whole, I label her Alpinoid.

    So you say GORID (East-Alpinid)?

    Estern European Alpinoid influenced by Baltid, yielding a more gracile and characteristically higher-skulled type

    GORID

    I dont know, to me she seems more like a west European Alpine.

    As her ancestors are from Britain I am wondering how widespread this Alpinid/Baltid mix is in the British Isles.


    As for the very slight Med influence, possibly extremely minor in pics where she is older while in her younger days I can't see any trace of Med. How is this possible? Can people as they age begin exhibiting slight changes in racial characteristic?

    On the whole, I label her Alpinoid
    I agree but would like to hear a few more people's opinions.




    She reminds a little of Carrie Fischer in this pic.

    I think you are basically right.

    The Eastern European touch that made me think of Baltid influence only manifests in the third picture. However, the impression of a broadish, slavic face may be due to distortion in the picture. Summa summarum, I think we can exclude significant Baltoid influence. The same is true for the Med.

    After the exclusion of Baltid and Mediterranid remains the Alpinid as the by far strongest influence.
    As a rectification of what I said above: There definitely is Nordoid influence, most probably with the emphasis more on the Cromagnid (Faelid) side (concave nose, quite robust overall features) than on the Aurignacid (Nordid). However, it would in my opinion go too far to label her Subnordid as the Alpinid share outweighs the Nordoid influence by far.

    I think that you are 100% correct, there is definitely a slight Nordoid strain there.
    So we can agree she is northern/western Alpinoid {Borreby}.
