    High Cheekbones, Are They Always an Indicator of Extra-European Origins?

    My question, do high cheekbones always indicate Lappism, Mongolism, or other extra-European/non-Europid origins? High cheekbones are considered a very attractive attribute in modern America, and elsewhere in the West.

    personally, this is my limit:




    Anything more robust would be a major turn off.

    interesting, Carmen Kass has these Nordic cheekbones doesn't she? I posted pictures of her to show what I considered attractive cheekbones, but what if they are more robust?

    Consider Maryna Linchuk of Belarus for example, are her robust cheekbones the result of Mongoloid ancestry? They are different in shape than those of Carmen Kass.

    It can be associated to cro-magnid and dalo-fälid as well.

    There seems to be a difference between high-set cheekbones, as seen in many Northern-European races, and low-set cheekbones (that is, cheekbones that are robust, but are set lower on the face) which seem to be more common among Southern races. The latter is very unnatractive in my opinion, and gives the face a chaotic haphnazard look.

    I think the latter is a better indicator of extra-European origins.

    I guess I find high cheekbones attractive, not too much though. The common denominator between the two people (Carmen Kass and the model in my profile picture) is that they are both Cro-Magnoid/Nordid mixes, which I find most attractive.

    I don't think its the best idea to focus the thread on your own opinions of whether you find a particular trait attractive or not, but that's just my niggling opinion.

    I think people often misuse the term "high" and use it to describe all people with noticable cheekbones. The reason that high or noticable cheekbones are considered so attractive by many is that they're a valuable adaptation to something in the environment. The more adaptations a person has to different environments, the more of a "superhuman" they are primitively speaking. Such traits we view as attractive would make little or no difference in our survival or comfort today (except maybe being tall), but they're still engraved in our mating preferaces. I believe we all have a collective unconscious, and that this was the building block for human intelligence during evolution. I think the brain has evolved from the very primitive bottom layer of the uncouscious to the conscious of a modern human. So, that would mean our primitive evolutionary instincts still influence our conscious thoughts, but we don't really need them, they're just sort of built in.

    There is at least a slight variation of traits in all races and ethnicities, and through natural selection certain major or slight adaptations can be achieved but they turn out differently in each race. It is not necessarily the height itself of the cheekbones that determines admixture, but the way they present themselves and the other traits that come along with them. What you're thinking of doesn't really have to do with them being high, you just like certain kinds of cheekbones. Any Germanic can have extremely high or low cheekbones, but there are only certain kinds they can have. Its very hard to explain.

    IMO there isn't anything judgemental about a topic like this unless the OP makes it about individuals or themselves, its a mere discussion about racial science. I believe preservation requires abstract thinking and not always following what you've been told.
