    This'd be more interesting if each face had more than 10 people in it. Otherwise there's bound to be a ton of sampling bias in here.

    Puerto Rican, Israeli, Peruvian and Spaniard women are my favorites from this selection of averaged faces.

    They do have more than 10. "I used no one I thought was under 20 and no one I thought was over 50. I used any internet source I could to get about 15-20 pictures each composite. The hardest thing is finding that many pictures of good frontal shots. Most people take pictures at an angle.

    It is also not always easy to find pictures of every nationality. At times I would use Google Image and type in the 10 most common last names for a nationality. For Latin America, where names are shared, I would use the most common last names for that country and put the country name in the search. I would try to verify that the person is at least in that country or from it (not easy). That was especially tricky with the UK (English, Welsh, etc) and Irish.

    Strangely for some nationalities it was easier to find men than women or vice versa. For example, very easy to find pictures of Italian men, but not women. It is very easy to find pictures of French women, but not men, etc.

    Anyway, for every composite I think I viewed at least a couple of thousand photos. " So not great methodology by any means but greater than 10 lol.

    Check this out.

    Capitalism is the belief that the rich don't work hard when they don't earn enough, and that the poor don't work hard when they earn too much.

    Most of these are far too attractive to be "average."

    That's OK. [White] Americans probably got the shaft because their face wouldn't fit the frame.

    lol, my husband says I look like a cross between Dutch and Italian, leaning towards Italian... and I do... and if those face composites are reliable then that'd kind of explain why elderly Italian women and men kept approaching me asking for directions when I was in Rome and all I could answer startled was "no comprendo, no soi Italiana"

    when it comes to men - Serbian, African American, Greek, Afghan and Argentinian are visual favourites

    It was a joke about them being forced to cover their faces.
