What other sort of speculation do you want? I'd be happy to offer more details, but I'm not sure just what you are hoping for.

And you do have the copyright permission for all five pictures, yes? (just to keep it clear, that is.)

2. 5 & 2 (dimple and the noses are different)

3. 1 & 3 (same facial structure, noses)

4. 4 (That photo reminds me of a friend of mine so that's probably influencing it. [Smile] )

5. 2 (Gosh, it does feel icky to say that)

1. Which one of these women looks least like the other four?

#5 She appears to be Jewish.

2. Which two look most different?

#2 and #5

3. Which two look most simmilar?

#1 and #2, though #4 and #5 look a lot alike (just, you know, different sub-races.)

4. Which is most attractive?

#5

5. Which is least attractive?

They are all attractive except #2. And I would wager that's because it's a bad picture.

With 1 being the leftmost and 5 being the rightmost, and ignoring as much as I can backgrounds, clothes, hairstyles, etc. (I assume this is what is meant by considering only "permanent characterstics"):

1. 2 (face seems a lot flatter than the others)
2. 2 and 5 (2's face is flat and hair is red, 5's face is angular and hair is blackish)
3. 4 and 5 (similar hair color and cheekbones)
4. 2
5. 4

Regarding questions 4 and 5: For "most attractive" I went back and forth between 1 and 2 for a while, but I went with 2 because her difference from the rest of the group made her seem more attractive. She also has a nice energetic tomboyish look to her, although that's probably due to the clothes. For "least attractive" I went with 4 because her face looks fat and her smile looks (if you'll excuse me) "slutty." Her clothes don't help. As for the others, 3 looks like a pretty run-of-the-mill dressed-up girl, 5 looks intriguing but very cold, and 1 radiates an attractive sense of power and control which is, however, undermined by her childish Elmo shirt.

(Looking at the faces, I think 1 and 3 are the same person, as are 4 and 5.)

Okay, I'm ready for the answers now. What is this about? Are any of these pictures the same person as any of the others? Come on! Don't keep us in suspense forever! [Smile]

I think they're all new Jatraqueras and we're going to find out that we've mortally insulted at least 3 of the 5.

1. Which one of these women looks least like the other four? #5. her face is smaller, her skin tone is not as pink, dimple in her chin, looks more exotic.
2. Which two look most different? #1 and #5. Totally different bone structure and skin/hair.
3. Which two look most simmilar? #3 and #4. Smiles, eyes, cheekbones, chins look alike to me.
4. Which is most attractive? #5. Beautiful skin, shiny hair, small nose, cute dimple in her chin, exotic, playing a violin.
5. Which is least attractive? #2. Partly because her hair isn't cut right and she's wearing "schlumpy" clothes. Her skin looks a little ruddy and her chin is a bit wide. Still cute though, none of the girls are unatractive.

I didn't read any posts after your first one so I wouldn't be biased. I'll go read them now.

1. 2--Her face is rounder, her eyes are smaller. The others all have hair styles more off the face than she does. Her picture is also slightly out of focus.
2. 1 and 4--1's face is long and angular, 4's is short and round. They're coloring is completely different.
3. 1 and 3--they look like sisters.
4. 5--She has a violin.
5. 3--don't know why.

I tried not to think too hard. If the first question had been last I would have answered 5.

Maybe we could get an estimate of when we'll find out the point of this experiment?

I went back and tabulated results so far, for anyone interested (these are approximate, since I'm sure I misread some posts):

Least like others-
5=24 votes (59%)
2=15 votes (37%)
1=1 vote (2%)
3=1 vote (2%)
4=0 votes (0%)

Most different-
2&5 = 29 votes (69%)
1&5 = 5 votes (12%)
2&4 = 4 votes (10%)
2&1, 3&5, 2&3, 1&4 = 1 vote each (2%)

Most simmilar-
3&4 = 22 votes (52%)
1&3 = 11 votes (26%)
4&5 = 3 votes (7%)
1&2 = 3 votes (7%)
2&3 = 2 votes (5%)
1&4 = 1 vote (2%)

Most attractive-
5 = 16 votes (42%)
4 = 11 votes (29%)
1 = 6 votes (16%)
3 = 4 votes (11%)
2 = 1 vote (3%)

Least attractive-
2 = 23 votes (61%)
1 = 8 votes (21%)
3 = 3 votes (8%)
5 = 3 votes (8%)
4 = 1 vote (3%)

I think that 1-4 are the same girl at different life stages (at a guess, 2=10th grade, 1=11th, 3=12th, 4=college freshman) and number 5 is a friend.

I'm not so sure. 1 seems to have greenish hazel eyes while 3 and 4 have dark brown looking eyes. Although, it could be my computer, or color changing contacts.

Does she have two eyes that are both the same size?

I haven't read any responses in an effort to limit being influenced by others observations.

Question 1. This is tough. I'm gonna have to have several responses here. Physically, #2 has a broad face and that seperates her from the others but expression-wise #1 seems the least content or happy. #5 is the only one truly engaged in something (also has a prop) I'm gonna go with #1 because she doesn't seem as happy or content.

Question 2. I'm not certain as to your intent here. There are two interpretations of this. Do you mean which two are most different from each other, or which two deviate from the class as a whole. I'm going to answer which two seen different from the whole. I think numbers 1 and 5 are different because they are the two without big smiles.

Question 3. I'm going with numbers 3 and 4 because of the shape of the face and the quality of their smile.

Question 4. I'm torn between number 3 and number 5. The emotion and obvious enjoyment that # 5 exudes makes her very attractive, but I'm gonna have to say number 3, again becaue of the quality of her smile.

Question 5. I'm having a hard time deciding between numbers 1 and 2. Two is smilling but I'm not fond of her broad face and chin but number 1 seems almost angry and I don't find that attractive. That's the best I can do.

Autumnfire hasn't posted at all since s/he started this thread on 11/20. So I'm not real hopeful of the answers showing up.

I, also, think the women are all the same, incidentally.

They can't all be the same person. 1 has green eyes. Most of the others have brown. You can't really tell 2's eye color.

Still waiting for the psychological fact.

The one thing that I see from the data is that people tend to think the most attractive and the most unattractive person look least like each other. Which isn't surprising.

I don't have any hope of AutumnFire posting an answer either. Especially since s/he never posted an answer in his/her other thread like this.

So do you think that #5 was photoshopped then? She looks to me like a different person, although I agree with you that the other four are all the same person.

I'll be pretty irritated if AutumnFire doesn't show back up and explain what this is all about. Used, and all that.

Okay folks, thank you all so much for your time and effort. I especially appreciate your explanations behind your answers. The intention of this experiment was to determine if

1. If these women conform to a particular physical "type."

2. If women 3 and 4 look distinctly simmilar even within the confines of this particular selection.

As far as the selection process goes, four are women that I personally have found attractive at one point, and one (number 2) is a control who I believe to be objectively attractive, and superficially similar to the others but who I have never been attracted to.

All five are different people (sorry to dissapoint) but the fact it was often assumed that they weren't is indicative of the answer to question 1 (and also of people's general scepticism of the stated purpose of a pyschological survey).

The results at last count from a tally of multipe sources are:
QUESTION 1
1
2 x21
3 x4
5 x33

QUESTION 2
1,2 x2
1,3
1,5 x7
1,4
2,3 x2
2,4 x5
2,5 x38
3,5 x2


QUESTION 3
1,2 x2
1,3 x13
1,4
1,5
2,3 x5
2,4
3,4 x33
4,5 x2
(2,3,4)

QUESTION 4
1 x11
2 x3
3 x8
4 x16
5 x16

QUESTION 5
1 x7
2 x33
3 x7
4 x3
5 x4

Thank you all again for your generosity.

Can you explain why this is worthy of a survey?

Can you tell us more about how you thought the survey would work out, and why?

The difference in hair color alone was enough to make me rule out 3 and 4 as most similar; what made you think they might be?
