    Dienekes' Anthropometric Calculator

    I've just used this 'Anthropometric Calculator' for males (there is another one for females, too), to see which country I mostly fit in to from my facial structures: http://dienekes.awardspace.com/calc/anthro/

    My stunning result was: Greek! With Bulgarian coming in second! lol

    Wow, I've never realized it, but yeah, if I was much higher pigmented than now -I am acually very fair skinned- I could pass as a southern Balkan person. My looks are not unusual for the southern part of Eastern Germany. So possibly it's a remnant of my Sorbian or other Slavic genes.

    Cool find Mzungu! I wouldn't put much into the results but it definitely seems like fun. I'm just wondering how hard of a time Aquiline-beaked fellows like myself are going to have accurately measuring that n-sn dimension!

    Haha, as soon as I saw the name of the test developer I thought the same thing.

    Probably yes!

    I wasn't able to measure every line accuratly. For example nose inclination was very difficult, so I just varied with a few estimations. But still, after every estimation the result still remained Greek *lol*

    This calculator uses a maximum likelihood classified based on data from L.G. Farkas et al., International Anthropometric Study of Facial Morphology in Various Ethnic Groups/Races. Journal of Craniofacial Surgery. 16(4):615-646, July 2005.

    The Euro-DNA-Calc it's easier, not real for everybody, but it's okay to see the major component. I prefer it.

    Well this calculator is not designed to show to which ethnicity you are mostly related to, but which ethnicity your face (FACE only, not even the rest of the head is taken into account) matches closest the average. From my point I can only tell that I have never thought about looking Greek. But I've seen a lot of Greek people, and now when I compare it, there in fact is some similiarity. So at least I wouldn't consider it as too absurd.

    Has anyone else yet tried this calculator?

    It is almost like a sign from the above to present me a mirror: "you look like a Greek", especially on this very day.

    I tried it though I fear your prediction of everyone being greek may true.

    Results of Anthropometric analysis

    Your best match is: German (according to all 14 measurements) and Greek (according to 11 independent measurements). See table All Populations below for other close matches.
    Your tr-n is less than 2 standard deviations from the average for German
    Your n-gn is less than 2 standard deviations from the average for German
    Your en-ex is more than 2 standard deviations from the average for German
    Your noseinclin is more than 2 standard deviations from the average for German
    Overall, you are 1.8 standard deviations from the average German (according to all 14 measurements) and 1.05 standard deviations from the average Greek (according to 11 independent measurements).


    Ja wie gehts!

    A bust from The National Museum of Iran of Queen Musa, excavated by a French team in Khuzestan in 1939. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musa_of_Parthia

    The features are similar to mine actually, big nose and eyes, but small mouth and ears... and very curly hair... So who knows perhaps Dieneke's calculator is not that bad at all and I'll can get my far forgotten family history track

    Are there any versions of Euro-DNA-Calc that are more in-depth than just NW European SE European and Ashkenazi?

    just a glance at this thread - but I find very unreliable these comparisons of faces dimensions to classify a man (or a woman) in a population - you can (if you are very acquainted to this job) try to figure out the phenotypical mixtures of a man, but comparing theses measurements to the mean measurements of a complete population is without sense - let's take 2 crossings, one: A+B, the other: C+D (the letters are for supposed well accepted 'pure' phenotypes) and sometimes, some of the results of these 2 different crossings can produce something very similar if you don't go further in the details, despite of the different origins - and the means of a population can correspond to NO genuine individual - it's just a play ...
