Most Common Face in the World – National Geographic

National Geographic Magazine released a video clip, below, showing the most “typical” human face on the planet as part of its series on the human race called “Population 7 billion.”

The researchers conclude that a male, 28-year-old Han Chinese man is the most typical person on the planet. There are 900 million of them.  No wonder I see so many on Wall Street.  The Chinese are showing prowess both at home and abroad!

The image above is a composite of nearly 200,000 photos of men who fit that description.

Don’t get used to the results, however. Within 20 years, the most typical person will reside in India.

A similar resource exists for the most common female faces in the world. According to UK Daily mail, these are the average faces of women from 24 different nations, all quite beautiful. Observations here include that Peruvians and Iranians have bigger mouths, Ethiopians and Samoans have curlier hair, and fringes seem to be big in Latvia and Poland.

Some anomalies can be explained by how the pictures were compiled. The prevalence of mousy hair is a result of blondeness being easily ‘diluted’.

South African Photographer Mike Mike – who inspired the images with a web project called The Face of Tomorrow compiling the faces of various cities – explains: ‘Blonde hair gets lost pretty quickly when you start averaging.

‘You’d need a population 75 per cent blonde to get it visibly remaining. You’d probably have to go to Iceland for that result.’ Please see their pictures below:

    How is that even possible when the breakdown by generic race on the planet is:

    55% caucasoid, 30% mongoloid, 15% negroid
