    Currently in England,we are over-run by eastern Europeans and i do find it very easy to recognise that before they open their mouths to talk.

    Cliched looks do have a major factor in reaching this conclusion but,the terrible fashion sense is also a big give away :p


    On a parting note,i was out about Town the other night,enjoying the benefits of 2-for-1 drinks offers,when i was served by a beautiful med looking barmaid.
    I asked her where in Spain she was from,to which she replied "Germany"

    Just goes to show.

    Here in England i can tell if a person is Polish quite easily. Everone on this blog seems to want to put the Poles into one of the various categories of Nordicism, but I beg to differ.

    For instance, it's been my experience that Poles tend to be salllow complected, thus tanner in their skin colouring than most British people. Honestly, both the men and the women seem to have a beautiful sun-kissed quality to their skintones in the summer, and an almost yellowish, olive tinge come winter. They never seem to burn in the sun like we paleskinned English always do.

    I also notice their hair colouring doesn't seem to range far too much from a dull, mousey brown. Straight and coarse too, I never seen a Pole with curly or very wavy hair, which is quite opposite of the English, and British groups in general.

    Their builds are stocky tending toward corpulence in middle-age. Again, most people from the British Isles seem either to be fine boned, or of the robust and muscular variety, not flabby and indistinguishably thickset like so many Poles.

    Polish facial features, I've noticed, are fleshy and plain. It's rare you see any with sharp chisled features.

    In short, I'll go against the grain and advance that most Poles are Alpinids.

    Below are some pictures of various Polish females. You'll note most are Alpinid in appearance. A lot of them are pretty drunk too...another Polish trait.

    I don't know if there is a single Slavic look, the Slavic peoples tend to be as diverse as Europe itself. Latins tend to be much darker than Germanics and mostly Dinarid, Armenid and subtly Orientalid, Celts also tend to be a little darker than Germanics.

    what are you doing posting porn on here? just kidding.

    Poles tend to be very diverse, the ones I've seen in Chicago fall into all categories including Alpinid, Baltid, Dinarid, and even Nordid. I can actually think of 3 Nordid Poles, all 3 have robust square jaws, are tall, have blue/gray eyes, and are blonde. Nordicism is not unheard of there, but it does not prevail there either. I can also think of a few very dark stocky Latina-looking Polish girls who I knew in high school yuck

    verdict: they need eugenics, badly

    It's difficult to differentiate visually the difference between a Celt and a Germanic, both of which are quite diverse and both of which overlap, sharing a multitude of common grounds. I'd say, commonly, there is a larger number of darker haired and darker eyed Celts than there are Germanics, however these sorts are represented to some degree in both cultures. Slavs, I don't know, I understand as being typically darker, however, I have seen lighter haired Poles many times. Latins are much darker than Germanics, Celts and Slavs, I think, and it'd be easy to pick out one of each those peoples, even the darker ones, in a room full of Latins.

    It's funny, though, when abroad I can pick an Englishman out from a mile off, it doesn't matter what hair or eye colour or bone structure or whatever else he has - even if he's not drunk and making a show of himself and indeed England, I can just tell he's English. I'm sure it'd be the same for the most of you and your respective nation and people.

    Look at this actor:

There is something about this instinct, which is somewhat carved in our minds but hard to take out of it. Would I have put my anthropological glasses, I would have said: hum, he's very robust, round-headed, blue-eyed and quite light-haired, he's probably Borreby so he could be German, Dane, or even Swede, because there are unreduced CM in Sweden too. But why not, this man could even be English, there are borrebies in England too and lots of people are CM with light eyes.

    But all this thought process is vain, because my guts told me he's German. And my guts were right on this one.
    I could tell he was German at a glance as well. It isn't a gut feeling or anything instinctual, but simply a matter of our brains at work. We have an astonishing capability to process the minutest of details, especially about faces, and especially about faces belonging to those in our own ethnic group. We have all seen many Germans, and there could be a hundred minute clues here that tell us he fits into this category, and those clues might also be more than just physical... they could be behavioral as well.

    He doesn't look Irish to me. In less than a second, my brain told me Russian. Again, there are a thousand little clues.

    You do realize you're conversing with someone who has not visited this forum in two years, and who posted that almost three years ago?

    I think the different looks, based on my gut feelings and popular conceptions, coincide with physical anthropology's scientific descriptions of the Hallstatt Nordid/Upper Paleolithic varieties vs. the Keltic Nordid/Brunnid.

    In American popular movies, Germanics are associated with two stereotypes: 1) having rugged, masculine features and dark brown hair(Upper Paleolithics); and 2) having delicate, "aristocratic" features and light hair(Hallstatt Nordid).

    Kelts on the other hand, at least in my experience, are stereotyped strongly with the Keltic Nordid type and Brunnid type.

    In the first association, they are seen as having very light skin, and having an "elfish" or dorky look(delicate features combined with protruding ears and nose), that is pred. Nordid with Dinarid influence. In America, the Keltic Nordid look is often stereotyped as being poor and rural, due to the large numbers of Keltic Nordids settling in the rural South.

    In the second Keltic association, Kelts(in AMerica, usually the IRish) are portrayed as being over-masculinized, rabble-rousing Brunnid types.

    there is a stereotypical germanic look. many people disregard stereotypes, however through my experience they are just "dramatized" versions of the truth. like the stereotype that all swedes are blonde, which is not true, but would not be innacurate to assume a swede would not be blonde because many are. i would say germanic typically looks nordic (tall, fair hair, light skin, light eyes), celtic would be mostly very stereotypical (reddish hair, light skin, dodgy facial hair), slavic would vary a lot a russian or north slav would stereotpyed different (almost nordic looking), and south slavs (almost arab looking). latins are mostly stereotyped as as having dark features (hair, eyes, skin) and not as tall.

    however these stereotypes are not always 100% true i would say it is a fair assessment to the people however not scientifically accurate.

    What makes an individual "look" Germanic? Or look Celtic? And what's the frontier between let's say a Germanic and Slavic look? Can we oppose a general "Western European" to a general "Eastern Euro"?

    Some members here argue that a Celtic look is often made up of dark hair, light eyes and freckled pale skin. Could we define traits like this defining what makes your gut feeling tell you that this man or woman look Germanic?
    This is a Celtic look, definitely not dark hair
