    What is your Head Length?

    You can use calipers if you have them or the "brick method", lay your head on a flat surface and place one book right against your forehead and one book right against the back of your head. The object is to measure the distance between the front and back of your head.

    Don't subtract for skin & hair, just take the measurement as tight to the skull as you can and select an option.



    The male measurements are what we are really interested in, but sadly there's no option to prevent everyone from participating :o:p

    Interesting poll, I honoured it.

    And it's a public poll, so that makes it rather unproblematic what your gender is.
    God expects but one thing of you,
    and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made
    and let God be God in you.

    I tried the brick method. I did it fairly well, I thought.

    I got 185cm exactly. Does that mean anything?

    Metrically, I am almost identical to that Nordid Swede that was posted. My head is 195 long, 152 wide

    I fear people's measurements will be too small or too big from the actual measurements. Nevertheless, it is an interesting thread. I have a few calipers, but none of them fit my head...

    Do you think that there is a significant correlation between head length and cranial volume capacity? I don't think it's necessarily always the case.

    202mm measured using cranial callipers I bought off "the bay". I'm not a very large man, I just have a rather large noggin.
