    I voted mixed as the least inaccurate of the choices you have made available. Turkey is at a cross roads and most Turks are Sunni Muslims meaning that they are more likely to marry other Sunni Muslims. This excludes Jews, Asians and to a large extent Europeans as only the coastal regions have a distinct European-like phenotype. The Armenians and Kurds in Turkey make up a large part of the genetic heritage of modern Turks but they do not fall in either of the above categories. The most accurate answer is Anatolian! The question you should be asking is what constituents make up Anatolian admixture.

    From personal observance, Anatolian mixture is heavily influenced by the Albanian element, with obvious Caucasian traits. The Serbs and the Turks had agreements from 1938 and continuing until 1954 to dispatch Albanians from their homeland and establish them in Anatolia (not to mention the earlier Ottoman policies on this matter).

    Turkish people are actually eastern Greeks and they do look like Greeks that mixed with the Armenians and in smaller degree Caucasians (Circassians) and Kurds.

    As far as I know Turkish people don't look Kurdish. I mean they don't have that 'Iranic look' in them.

    And in general they absolutely don't look like Arabs either.

    Is Erdogan not of a Circassian/Caucasian origin? He's from the Black Sea area, isn't he?

    So they're partly European (Greeks) and partly Armenian (Anatolian) - Caucasian with some Turkic elements from Central Asia!

    But they don't look like their eastern neighbours Kurds.

    So that's why I voted "MIXED".

    So, is that picture under your name a picture of a tall, white skinned, Nordic looking Anatolian? Just wondering.

    Although in fact the colour of a person's complexion isn't always a good guide to that person's genetic makeup.

    No generalization.. half of the Turkish people(about %30-40) have different ancestry: Turk(%50-60)-Arab-Kurd-Lezgi-Chechen-Georgian-Circassian-Gypsy-Kurd(Ancestoral: Iranian-Indian-Iraqi)-Greek-Armenian(Crypto)-Sephardic Jewish-Bosnian-Polish
    Turkic people of Turkey: Oghuzes and Kipchaks(Kazakh-Kyrgyz-Tatar-Cuman etc.)

    I think you are underestimating the Albanian influence in turkey as there are 3 million people there who declare Albanian ancestry and those are the ones who know it. 500 years under influence to go along with 28 viziers and the influential Koprulu family amongst others.

    But you must know that the Ottoman commanders who were born in Albania doesn't mean they're Albanians.. there were Ottoman commanders of Anatolian nomadic origin whose grandsons were born in Albania(war region)
    Albanian population in Turkey reportedly about: 300.000..(KONDA) perhaps today, 500.000. They've come to Anatolia during Muhacir(Muslim Balkan) migrations, we welcome and respect them.

    I voted mixed. There are Turks who look very European to me: often they have ancestry from the Balkans, but even the Turks from the coastal Aegean areas can look indistinguishable from southern Europeans to me.

    Others look quite different, and definitely West Asian. Some, the ones whom I'm assuming come from southern Turkey and might have some ancestry from Syria look a bit Levantine.

    Like Caucasians and Iranians in their majority. but some are closer to Southern Europeans.
