The Most Typical Face on the Planet

Liz Goodwin from The Lookout, writes that National Geographic Magazine released a video clip, above, 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 9 million of them.

The image above is a composite of nearly 200,000 photos of men who fit that description. I find it funny that the most typical face on the planet is the most underrepresented group in the media and often the most ridiculed. The article also adds that readers shouldn’t get use to the results because within 20 years, the most typical person will reside in India. (Salamat, Jeremy)
